In personal life also Madhvacharya did not show correct behaviour. He was a
Sanyasi just like Adi Sankara. But he had a HUGE appetite. For a Sanyasi
the control of appetite is very important. He must not eat more than he can
hold with two hands in every meal.
The sad story is Madhvas are very much enjoying the story of Madhva eating
4000 bananas and drinking 30 pots of milk in Goa. They may say he was
Hanuman and Bheema with huge appetite. But if he is a Sanyasi he must
follow Sanyasi Dharma only. He cannot say I am Bheema and I can eat as much
as I want. It is wrong. Will he say I am Bheema and get married and have
children also ????
