Life & Works of Advaita Acharyas: Sri Appayya Dikshita (Morning Session)

Sri Appayya Dikshitar was one of the foremost Advaita Acharyas, who was also a great Shiva Bhakta and a Siddha-yogi. He has written a large number works on Vedanta, Shiva Advaita, Mimamsa, Vyakarana, Kavya vyakhyana, Alankara, and devotional poetry. His most famous work is Parimala and Sivaarka-mani-deepika, both of which are on Brahmasutras, but the former from Advaitic perspective and the latter from Shivadvaita perspective.
