Adi Shankarar in argument with Mandanamisrar's wife

Shankaracharya and Mandanamisrar's wife were on an argument about "meemaamsam". If Shankaracharya wins the argument then Mandanamisrar should take sannyas, on the other hand if Shankarar loses then he has to give up his sannyas. Eventually Shankarar wins the argument and Mandanamisrar follows him as a sannyasin.

It is by means of worship of and meditation on God that our self-created sufferings are softened and assuaged. God is the God of all--of the believers within all religions, and of the nonbelievers, too.
