Advaita Vedanta is the non dualistic school of vedanta primarily explicated by Samkara. The purpose of this study is to undertake an analysis of the epistemological issues inherent in the Advaita Vedanta theory of the Knowing and the known to explicate their twotiered theory of knowledge from a phenomenalistic perspective and at the same time to make sense of the overarching unity that prevails over the duality and division. The interpretation and analysis is based on Dharmaraja's Vedanta Paribhasa and its commentary Paribhasa Prakasika.
