>Do you know Madhusudana Saraswati's father's name and the place where is father was from? Also do you know what was his mother tongue and which community he belonged to? Please quote from the reliable references if you have any.
There are only stories. Even a basic student of Madhusudana knows this.
IF ALL ARE STORIES THEN YOU TOO DON'T HAVE ANYTHING OTHER THAN STORY>
>Just claiming to be ditto copy cannot save you Mr. Rajaram. Now you are caught redhanded. Why can't you quote rather than claiming?
I have given you t he date. You made a similar request to quote the original sanskrit text for Prof. Nelson's translation. I did that and then you asked me to quote them side by side. I did and you did not find anything wrong with the translation. You simply have not answered what work of Prof. Nelson you are quoting from.
I ma sure you mean red-handed in the sense I have the kumkuma prasadam in my hand :)
HA HA, THE VERY FACT THAT YOU ARE ASKING ME TO GIVE THE REFERENCE FROM WHERE I QUOTED SHOWS THAT I HAVE QUOTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT YOU QUOTED. THAT EXPOSES YOU. YOU HAVE TRASH IN YOUR HAND.
>Thye question was whether the Gidhartha_didpika and Advaita-siddhi are after Bhasgavad-bhakti-rasayana (BBR) of before BBR. You cannot prove Advaita-siddhi to be before BBR. Professor Gupta is sure that Gudhartha dipika succeeded Bhagavad-bhakti-rasayana but she is not know about the Advaita-siddhi. So leave her alone. Prof. Pandeya and Prof. Nelson opined that BBR preceded Advaita-siddhi. So that settles the issue for me. You can even forget Anand Hubliji in this context as he has not reaffirmed his position on this issue. Now that Adavia-siddhi succeeded BBR please do not waste any time time on lingering on this issue.
You are wrong. She says that is AS is most probably before BhR. Nelson says that AS and BBR were written about the same time. Anyway, GAD which is later than all these works gives a clear authority to BhR. So, you have no point to make. His knowledge of Advaita was well established long before AS. So, your theory that "he did not understand" or "he might not have" is baseless.
YOU ARE WRONG. PROFESSOR GUPTA SAYS SHE IS NOT SURE WHETHER AS PRECEDES OR SUCCEEDS BhR. PROFESSOR NELSON SAYS BhR PRECEDED AS. SO PLEASE LEARN TO RESPECT THE TRUTH.
>I think you have to brush up your English and be honest. I did not say Madhusudana stole any idea from the Gaudiya school.. Madhusudana could have been influenced by the Chaitanya's school at one point in his life and that is not called staeling, Mr. Rajaram..Madhuasudana was an honest person. As you are casting doubt on his honesty I am now compelled to doubt your own honesty.
>I dont think you got the pun. Anyway, I dont nee to take English lessons from some one who writes, "Professor Gupta is sure that Gudhartha dipika succeeded Bhagavad-bhakti-rasayana but she is not know about the Advaita-siddhi."
>HA HA, TRYING TO GET MILEAGE FROM TYPO S?
