Shankara's discussion of adhyaasa

     
      The discussion of Shankaracharya on adhyaasa bhaashhyam can be broadly classified into six subtopics: 1. adhyaasa sha~Nkaa (objections to the theory of error) 2. adhyaasa sha~Nkaa samaadhaanam (answering to the objections) 3. adhyaasa lakshaNam (the definition of error) 4. adhyaasa sambhaavanaa (showing the possibility of error) 5. adhyaasa pramaaNa (proof for adhyaasa) 6. adhyaasa upasa.nhaaraH (conclusion of the adhyaasa topic).

      For convenience, we take the third topic first, adhyaasa lakshaNam, the rest of the topics will be discussed in the order.
