RV: As maya is indeterminate, its locus cannot be determinate which is why
I think different advaita  schools differ in their view on the locus of
avidya. And someone like Madhusudana Saraswati is able to syncretize very
diverse views within the tradition as if each view is equally valid. I am
happy to be corrected.
