Editor – The debate between Sankara and Mandana Misra is very popular. Respected Shri T N Sethumadhavaniji had written about it – attracts lots of visitors. Through a friend I contacted a senior professor of philosophy in the Banaras Hindu University and asked which book best captured the debate. He suggested this one – an extract from a book titled ‘Sankara Digvijaya’. But BHU did not have a copy. Called Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan and the publishers in Chennai – they do did not have copies.
Eventually the BHU prof suggested I call K J SOMAIYA BHARATIYA SANSKRITI PEETHAM. I called and they had it. They were very nice to give to send me a photocopy of the chapter. Lots of Dhanyavad to them.
