MAHESHI

Sankaracharya was amazed and followed the direction and came to Maheshi. He had a philosophic discussion (Shastrartha) and Mandan Misra was defeated. Mandan Misra's wife Bharati Devi told Sankara- charya that he had to defeat her also who was the other half of Mandan Misra. Sankaracharya agreed and Bharati Devi put some questions based on sexology. Sankaracharya could not reply as he did not know anything of sexology, and went back to equip him.

The body was left and the soul went into some one else to get an inkling of sexology. Sankaracharya subsequently defeated Bharati Devi in the discussion. The villagers still show a mound at Maheshi village and mention that the philosophic discussion took place at that site. It is at this village Maheshi that there is an Ugratara temple and it is said that Mandan was a devotee of this deity.
