May I bring to your attention that by all accounts Adi Sankara time was
some where around 8th to 9th century AD.  And of the four Matts that he
established Kanchi is not one of them.  Either the Mutt is less than 1100
years old or if it is 482 B.C. as is claimed in the news then it must not
have been established by Adi Sankaracharya.  Please check the dates and the
real history of the kanchi matt. Is there any one in the network that has
better information about the Kanchi peetam?  Sadananda
