Answer
Dear Aditya,

There is no problem in your question. All your questions relate to 'advaita' philosophy. Brahmavada or Mayavada were espoused by Sri Sankaracharya. He did not repudiate theism. His composition 'Bhaja Govindam' is sung lovingly by all Vaishnavas. As for the philosophies and their differences, kindly go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedanta which is nice. With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

Aupmanyav
