Sri Yogeendra Theertharu Back View - Srirangam

Sri Raghavendra swami’s poorvashrama brother’s grandsons were three,
1. Sri Venkannacharya
2. Sri Vasudevacharya
3. Sri Muddhukrishnacharya

Among them Sri Venkannacharya was called upon by Sri Raghavendra swami to succeed him as Sri Yogeendra theertha. Sri Yogeendra theertharu was a great scholar and gnyani. After Sri Raghavendra swami’s entry into his brindhavana, he established a code of pooja rituals at Manthralayam and started on his tour. He visited Kumbakonam, Srirangam and other kshethras.

  • He defeated kakashastri and others in debates at Bhagyanagar.
  • As Gururaja had moved away from Southern region, the swamiji went towards that region. After having darshan of Sri Vijayeendra theertharu at Kumbhakonam, he came to Srirangam.
  • The pilgrim of Srirangam was then under the administration of the Nayaks of grandson of Thirumalanayaka, son of Vishwanathanayaka and with tradition of the reverence, his ancestor had towards Mahasamsthan, he gifted a village ‘Arambhanna’ on the river tamraparni and Kalla Mutt lying to the west of Chitra street in Srirangam on the most sacred day of Akshaya Thritheeya in 1679 dedicating it to Lord Krishna.
  • While he was at Srirangam, he heard the voice (OM) of his guru Sri Raghavendra swami at a particular spot.
  • He remained there for the rest of his life and entered his brindhavana in the same premises.
  • His aaradhana falls on the day next to Madhwa navami, i.e. Magha- Shudha- Dhashami.(2-2-12).
  • Sri Yogeendra theertha poorvashrama brothers Sri Vasudevacharya and Sri Muddhukrishnacharya became sanyasis later in the name Sri Soorendra theertharu and Sri Sumateendra theertharu respectively.

  1. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
