Has any ancient non-advaitic acharya/author referred to Shankaracharya by name in his work? For example I understand that Bhaskara in his Brahmasutra bhashya does not refer to Shankara by name.

  • I believe ramanuja and madhwa denigrated Sankara. is that the sort of thing you are looking for? – S K Feb 24 '18 at 1:04
  • No, I am not asking about that. I know Ramanuja has referred to Shankara as 'pracchanna bauddha, a fraudulent Vedantin, one endowed with primordial sinful vasanas, etc.' I just wanted to know if some ancient work mentioned Shankara by his name. I know Vedanta Desika in his Gita commentary says '.......and Shankara are vaishnavas.' But has any earlier author mentioned his name? – v subrahmanian Feb 24 '18 at 2:45
