I don't know what you know about dRRiShTisRRiShTi, but if you think that
'everything' is sRRiShTa then you need some more time to look at old books
and similarly more time to use inference and imagination too.
Even in ekajIva-dRRiShTisRRiShTi anAdi-s are not sRRiShTa. And jIva is one
of the anAdi-s. People appreciate if someone presents some old sentence, so
here it is from advaitasiddhikAra - अनाद्यतिरिक्तसृष्टिविषय एव
दृष्टिसृष्टिस्वीकारात् ।
Why ekajIvavAdin-s don't accept jIva and support jIvAbhAsa is totally
another thing. And, similarly the acceptance of nAnAjIva has nothing to do
with dRRiShTisRRiShTi or sRRiShTidRRiShTi.
