It is interesting to recall that among such students was the young man who was later on to become the Jagadguru of Sri Sringeri Mutt under the name of Sri Nrisimha Bharati and the worthy predecessor of the illustrious Sri Sacchidananda Sivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati Swamigal. While at Benares Kutti Sastri wrote many a book. Probably Kakataliya Vadartha, Dhurganachandrika and Tarkasangraha Vyakhya are among those then written. After some time he started for a return to the South. While passing through Maharashtra on the way back, he was honoured by Madhava Rao, Parasuram Pattavardhana and other famous Pandits of the time. By the time he came to Mysore, the Hindu dynasty had been restored and Krishna- raja Wodayar was the ruling Prince. The king persuaded him to stay for some years at Mysore and appointed him as a Dharmadhikari in his own palace. Thanks to this royal patronage the Pandit performed the Jyotishtoma Yaga in a very grand style. While at Mysore he heard about the greatness of the then Jagadguru at Sringeri and went there to pay his respects to him. He did not recognise in the Acharya before him the young Brahmachari who was his disciple at Benares but the latter could not fail to recognise his Vedanta Guru, When the recognition was complete on both sides, their joy at so unexpectedly meeting each other was necessarily boundless. The Pandit returned to Mysore and thence proceeded to Ramesvaram. On the way he saw King Sarabhoji at Tanjore and the king was extremely glad to see the Pandit whom he thought he had lost for ever by his own fault. After his return from Ramesvaram he stayed in his own village. Ripe in years and in learning, he had intense devotion to God, especially as manifested in the Mahalinga Murti at Madhyarjuna near his village and he has written a Mahalinga Sataka in praise of Him. He seems to have lived to the age of about eighty and then merged in the feet of his favorite Deity Sri Mahalinga. The reader will recognise from the above that the Mahisha Sataka is not an idle Kavya written by a clever poet for the benefit of those who want to waste time pleasantly but that it is replete with eternal truths, is from the pen of a really very serious author and has been commented upon by no less than the Vedanta Guru of Sringeri Acharya. We have much pleasure and pride therefore in launching this publication for the benefit of all lovers of Sanskrit and of wisdom. 26-11-46. R.
