Santhosh ,shivaprasad dinakar ,swami sarvabhutananada sir,
Sorry for my harsh words,I won't repeat the same here again.....
But at last I want to say some thing...madhva lived for 69 years,ramunuja
lived for 120 years...still they were not able to come to the level of work
what adi shankara had done in only 32 years.
Some are good in some field and may not be good in other field.For
example,Even though madhva was good in his dvaita sidhanta,he did not know
how to spread his philosophy through out the country.That is why dvaitha
can be seen only mainly in karnataka.
Shiva prasad sir said,Vyasa raja spread the dvaitha to some extent,but it
is vyasa thirtha not madhvacharya.
Madhva just copied the matha concept what shankara has previously
started.Before shankara sanyasi were restricted from making house (matha),
and staying there for years.But shankara started matha concept just to save
and spread sanathana dharma.He thinks it is better to keep sanyasi as head
of amnaya peetham so that he won't have greedy over someone or some thing.
Coming to shankara's point,He had good command over his philosophy and also
he knew how to spread his philosophy,that cam be easily seen from his matha
concept and his four amnaya peetha in four corners of the country.
Even great darshanikas think shankara lived for more than 32 years,because
they think it is very difficult for a person who lived only 32 years to
spread and save sanathana vaidika dharma in 700 A.D time ,when there was no
proper facility for any thing.
Now we have every facility still we are not able to convenes even a single
person.But that time without any facility shankara convenced about advaitha
to asthika's as well as nasthika people like jaina ,boudha.Which is very
very difficult.Because of him sanathana dharma is still alive
That is even today shankaracharya is called as jagath guru,An avathar of
