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.

Some reactions are healthy; others are unhealthy. The reaction to a reaction is destructive, whereas the reaction itself, when viewed with a balanced mind, eventually becomes an asset.
