A sub-commentary on Śaṅkara's Brahmasūtrabhāṣya by Vācaspati Miśra, synthesizing Śaṅkara's views with those of Maṇḍana Miśra. Subsequently the Bhāmatī gave its name to a school of interpretation within the Advaita Vedānta tradition, one which stressed the importance of yoga and contemplation as means to liberating knowledge, and defined ignorance (avidyā) as being peculiar to the individual.
