A Consummate, Versatile Scholar

Vedanta-deshikar's Uncle Atreya Ramanuja himself was the boy's teacher. Deshikar was a genius. He closely and effortlessly followed the lessons taught. He became a consummate, versatile scholar even before he was twenty. He was well read in the Vedas, in grammar, prosody, nirukta (one of the vedangas), astronomy, theology, Samkhya, Yoga, Nyaya (logic), Vaisheshika, Mimamsa, different schools of Vedanta, Buddhist and Jaina religions, history and puranas. He mastered all these subjects and became a gear scholar early in his life.

After his education was over, his guru got him married to a girl, Tirumangai. Atreya chose him as his successor to the Kanchi mutt.
