Dear Vidyasankarji,

I admire your very critical look at things.  From you mail it is clear that you are not convinced in Keshav kshmiri Bhattacharya being the 33rd Nimbarkacharya. I would have been happy if  you would have told us as to what you think about the date of Suka, the guru of Gaudapadacharya. I am reminding you lest you have overlooked that

 Like the Avogadro's Hypothesis in science, the
 hypothesis that Adi Shankara wrote sixteen (16) bhashyas may
 stand tall, particularly because  the Brihat Shankara
 Vijaya as well as the work of Shri Vidyaranya combined with
 commentary on it says so, until someone gives another proven
 figure to contest that.
 Till I see credible reports of
 actual manuscripts of this so called bRhacchankaravijaya
 having been found, I'll be extremely skeptical, even
 dismissive, of arbitrary claims conveniently attributed to
 that text. Whatever flights of fancy you choose to believe
 is your problem sir. Please do not expect everyone else to
 subscribe to the same fancy!
 Kindly permit me to say that I have no reason to believe
 that  there have been people  all around, who have been
 conspiring against the Sringeri
 This statement of yours is so
 laughable as to not deserve any response, so I'm not
 going to give you one. I just wonder how some generic doubt
 about authorship of one or the other text becomes an issue
 about the Sringeri lineage in your mind! There is no
 connection at all that anybody else can see, but please,
 have at it. I'm done, trying to respond sensibly to your
 latest round of desperate attempts in this
