By Swami Harshananda
Advaita Vedānta literature, due to various factors like polemical attacks against Advaita philosophy, grew to considerable proportions, especially in the post-Śaṅkara period. One of the outstanding works of this period is the Advaita-hrahmcLsiddhi of Sadānanda Kāśmiraka who might have lived during the early part of the eighteenth century. In this work, written in an easy and simple style, he gives an excellent summary of all the most important Vedāntic doctrines, in the different schools of Advaita.
He also deals with in detail, the views of materialists and sceptics, classifying them into four groups.
