Yes, I too understand Advaita as expounded by Vachaspati Misra. He is the foremost in Advaita lineage.

Very well? I think not. In any case standard, normal, etc, are also ridiculous adjectives to Vedanta. What ought to be standard or normal cannot be defined by an onlooker or an outsider from the tradition. What is agreed by the stalwarts of orthodox tradition such as Sw. Vidyaranya, Appayya Dikshita, etc, cannot be said to be non-standard.
Perhaps, a better set of words to use would be "more popular". And more popular doesn't make the less-popular wrong.
