MAHESHI

Saharsa is the nearest railway station for the village Maheshi. From Saharsa to Bangaon, a distance of four miles, there is an all-weather road. Bangaon is a large village and has an Inspection Bungalow. From Bangaon to Maheshi, a distance of about three miles there is an apology for a road, which is unmetalled, and not passable even by jeeps in the rainy season.

Only bullock-carts can negotiate the distance of three miles in the rainy season with great difficulties. Maheshi village is ancient and, according to the legend commonly known throughout Bihar, was the place where Mandan Misra, a great philosopher of the Eighth Century, lived.

It is here that Sankaracharya came from the south and had a philosophicdiscussion first with Mandan Misra and then with his wife Bharati Devi. The story mentions that Sankaracharya first met a maid servant filling up her pitcher from a tank and asked her where Mandan Misra lived. The maid servant replied in Sanskrit that he should go a little farther and when he could find a village on the same path where even the birds talk Sanskrit he should know that Mandan Misra lived there.
