There is no conclusion in my post that this idea is of Vallabhacharya.  One
has to see in that pdf as to about whom, advaita or other, that triad is

Basically, the idea of Ishwara represented by Avaccheda vada as maThakasha
has no influence whatsoever on the ultimate Advaita understanding.  These
vadas are only aids to understand Advaita. So the remarks about
Chinmayananda are not of any relevance to this discussion.
