Dear Jaldharji and members,

There has been alot of talk on Madhusudana Saraswati, I assume he was an 
advaitin revivalist to defend advaita against other philosophises e.g. 
Ramanuja, Vallabh, Madhva, Chaitanya and etc if i'm not correct please say 

I have been trying to do some research on this great personality through the 
web and also trying to find books about his life and etc.

I have ordered 2 books from the internet (Advaita Siddhi & Gudhartha Dipika) 
unfortunately they are books that MS has authored but i was wondering is 
there anything i could read about his life and etc.


1) Birth, Parent, Caste, Birth Miracles (If any)
2) His student life
3) His Guru
4) etc basicly anything that seems authentic (or not) that is related to him 
and his life.

I have also ordered :
Totakacarya : Srutisarasamuddharanam, how authentic is this?

Sureshwacarya has written vartika(s), but there seems to be numerous 
vartika's if i'm correct. What is a varitika and how many of them are there 
(which he has written or any other of the 3 direct disciple of BP), and 
where could i purchase them from. I live in England so i'm limited in where 
i could find scriptures etc.

Warm Regards,
