Doubt on govinda-bhagavatpAda.

Dear Bhaktas,

I have a small doubt regarding govinda-bhagavatpAda which has been
lingering in my mind for quite some time now. I understand from the
pages of the advaita-vedanta samshodhana kendra that
govida-bhagavatpAda, who was the guru(teacher) of Adi Shankara, is
"popularly" regarded as the incarnation of Adi Sesha.[1]

Yathirajar (Acharya Ramanujar) is also regarded as the incarnation of
Adi Sesha. I am not able to acquiesce in this matter(of
govinda-bhagavatpAda's incarnation).

I would like to get my naive doubt cleared as soon as possible by
bhaktas in this forum.
