Sometimes transliterated as: Sabdadvaita, ZabdAdvaita, shabdaadvaita


Śabdādvaita literally means ‘advaita of śabda’.

Maṇḍana Miśra[1] was an advaitin. He has propagated this view in his well-known work Brahmasiddhi. According to him, Brahman[2] is consciousness which is the power of speech, nature of śabda, sound or vibration. Hence Brahman is of the nature of ‘śabda’ or speech. Though Maṇḍana, following Bhartṛhari[3] a philosopher of the school of grammar, adduces several powerful arguments in its favor, later advaitins do not subscribe to his views.
