Commenting on this verse, Ksemaraja sets himself the task of solving a problem common to all monisms, namely, how can there be only one reality (here identified with Siva, the pure perceiving subjectivity) when the world of manifest existence is clearly diverse and multiple. After rejecting both the possibility of a real change taking place in the absolute, on the model of the transformation of a material substance, or that all change and diversity are unreal, he declares that: This suggests that the Lord has the power to do the impossible (atidurghatakaritva) in so far as he manifests the diversity of the waking and other states while remaining undivided therein.
But why did Abhinava think this? One reason may be that he studied the Stanzas with a teacher who belonged to a tradition that maintained this view. Some scholars have suggested that the teachers of the Recognition (Pratyabhijna) school preserved an independent tradition of interpretation of the Stanzas that started directly with Vasugupta, who is supposed to have taught Somananda, the earliest exponent of the Doctrine of Recognition. 30 Even so, as we have seen, he did not think, despite his doubts, that Vasugupta wrote the Stanzas.

He traces his lineage at the Trivikrama Srikrsna beginning of his work52 directly from Vasugupta |l through Kallatabhatta as follows: Bhagavadutpala Laksmanadesikendra Vasugupta ( Laksmanagupta ) | | Kallatabhatta Abhinavagupta | If this picture is correct then Bhagavadutpala Pradyumnabhatta (Kallata's maternal cousin) should precede Abhinava by one generation and | hence belong to the second or third quarter of 46 Mahadevabhatta the tenth century.
