Such as where, for example?
Note, however, that this argument gets you nowhere. If records of
Maadhva lineage are doubtful, then the claimed "link" of the Gaudiya
tradition to that lineage is all the more doubtful. It is in your
interest to assert that there is never ever an instance of a doubt
with regard to Maadhva lineage.
