Śrīśailācārya (श्रीशैलाचार्य) or Śailācārya (18th century) is the author of the Siddhānta Saṅgraha: a Sanskrit book dealing with Viśiṣṭādvaita and closely following the philosophical model of Vedānta Deśika.—Śrīśailācārya was identified as the author of Siddhānta Saṅgraha from the colophon of the work. It states that he belonged to Tiruvaraṅgam Āṇḍān Śrī Śailā family. He was the son and the pupil of Śrī Raṅgarāja Mahādeśika, by whose grace he has performed many sacrifices such as Vājapeya. He was also known as Śrī Śailā Deśika. This may be due to his mastery over the subject or due to the reverence paid to Śrī Vedānta Deśika or because of his father’s name.
Vedanta (वेदान्त, vedānta) refers to a school of orthodox Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. There are a number of sub-schools of Vedanta, however all of them expound on the basic teaching of the ultimate reality (brahman) and liberation (moksha) of the individual soul (atman).
