Madhava wrote at Sringeri (c. 1380) the Sarva darsana samgraha, which remains the classic summary of the various Brahman philosophical points of view.
After these come Harana-harika, Khandava-daha (the burning of the Khandava forest) and Maya-darsana (meeting with Maya the Asura architect).
Aikatmyam is explained by the commentator as Eka eva dwaita darsana hina atma yatra bhavati.
