Yes, many recordings have a low audio quality, esp the old ones where
someone sitting somewhere would record on some device. And it takes a while
to tune into the accent.

The Mahamandaleshvara didn't talk about it in this context, but elsewhere.
Here, he mentioned that manana is not smaraNa. Nonetheless, in Vamadeva's
case, I suppose it is agreeable to both of us that only pratibandhanivRtti
was pending, which can accomplished by garbhanivAsabhoga itself.
