Sankara, UpadeSasâhasrî, padya X V I, 13 (in Minor Works o f Sri Sankaräcärya [ed. by H. R. Bhagavat] = Poona Oriental Series, No. 8, second edition, 1952): yaddharmâ yah padärtho na tasyaiveyât sa karmatâm{ na hy ât manant dahaty agnis tathä naiva prakâSayetjl Sankara criticizes there the Buddhist idealists (Vijnänavädin), who hold that cognition is self-luminous, like a lamp.

Cf. also Nyiyasûtra 1, 11 : pratidrffintahetutve ca nihetur drffintah. — The verb ä-gamis used in both the senses ‘to have recourse to’ and ‘to understand, realize’. On its use in the latter sense cf. Aivaghosa, Buddhacarita 38 and 116; Saundarananda 42 (both in E. H. Johnston’s editions, Lahore 1936 and 1928, respectively; reprint: Delhi, Motilal Banarsidass, 1972 and 1975). The absolute truth is beyond words (anakfara). But it is taught ‘through super­ imposition’ (samirapit), with the help o f the conventional turth.
