Sri Prakashatman is the most popular name of Prakashaatma-yati, who is also known as Svaprakashanubhava Bhagavata or just Svaprakashaanubhava. His period is not before the 10th century CE. He is best identified as the author of Pancapadika-vivarana gloss on Sri Padmapada's Pancapadika, which itself is a sub-commentary on Bhagavatpada’s Brahma-sutra-bhashya. As may be gleaned from Pancapadika-vivarana, Sri Prakashatman is the disciple of Sri Govindananda. Though primarily an exposition of advaita philosophy itself, Pancapadika-vivarana can be considered to be styled as a rebuttal of the Mahayana school of Buddhism. It is a seminal work, which has given rise to the Vivarana-prasthana or the Vivarana sub-school of advaita and has received much attention from later authors. Thus, Akhandananda Muni’s Tattva-deepana, Ramananda Sarasvati’s Vivaranopanyasa, Nrisimhasrama’s Pancapadika-vivarana-bhava-prakashika and Vivarana-prameya-samgrana of Sri Vidyaranya-Sri Bharathi Tirtha have stemmed from it. On the Brahma-sutra, Sri Prakashatman has also penned independent commentaries Saririka-mimamsa-nyaya-samgraha and Laukika-nyaya-muktavali. His Sabda-nirnaya upholds the testimonial authority of sabda.
