  • Vācaspati Miśra was a 9th- or 10th-century CE Indian philosopher of Advaita Vedanta school of Hinduism. His ideas are sometimes called the Bhāmatī sub-school of Advaita, a name based on the title of his commentary on Brahma-sūtra-bhāṣya of Adi Shankara. Vachaspati Miśra was a prolific scholar and his writings are extensive, including bhasya (commentaries) on key texts of almost every 9th-century school of Hindu philosophy with notes on heterodox traditions such as Buddhism and Charvaka. He also wrote one non-commentary, Tattvabindu. Some of his works are lost to history or yet to be found.Little is known about Vacaspati Mishra's life, and the earliest text that has been dated with certainty is from 840 CE, and he was at least one generation younger than Adi Shankara. However, an alternate date for the same text may be 976 CE, according to some scholars, a confusion that is based on whether Hindu Saka or Vikrama era calendar is used for the dating purposes. His scholarship is revered in the Hindu tradition, which believes that he was a Maithila Brahmin from Bihar. (en)
