//According to Kuppuswami Sastri, it is not likely that Maṇḍana Miśra, the
author of *Brahmasiddhi*, is identical with Sureśvara, but the tradition is
correct in describing Maṇḍana Miśra and Śankara as contemporaries.[3]
critical edition of the *Brahmasiddhi* also points out that the name
Maṇḍana Miśra is both a title and a first name, which is a possible cause
for a confusion of personalities.[3]
Miśra's brand of Advaita differs in certain critical details from that of
Śhankara, whereas Sureśvara's thought is very faithful to that of Śhankara.

In any case, Shankara refutes the bhedābheda doctrine in the BSB 2.1.14. It
is interesting to note that this doctrine is associated with the following


//Other major names are Bhāskara
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bh%C4%81skara_(philosopher)> (8th and 9th
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhedabheda#cite_note-IEPbheda-1> Rāmānuja’s
teacher Yādavaprakāśa,[1]
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhedabheda#cite_note-IEPbheda-1> and
Vijñānabhikṣu <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vijnanabhiksu> (16th century).

It is necessary that concerted efforts should be made to give wide
publicity to the prevailing
erroneous idea and the malicious propaganda by  the Ramanuja school
linking Yadava
Prakasha to Advaita.
