VIDYARANYA

Parentage and Childhood

Madhavacharya's father was Mayanacharya. He was a pious man of a quiet nature. He had settled down in Pampakshetra (modern Hampe) and  lived peacefully and happily teaching his disciples.

He had an equally good wife, Srimatidevi. She too was of a quiet and pious nature. For a long time they had no children. They went on pilgrimage to many holy places. They performed many rituals and religious ceremonies with devotion. At last they had a son, about the year 1268. After observing the necessary rituals he was named Madhava.

After the birth of Madhava, they had two more sons and a daughter. The boys were named Sayana and Bhoganatha and the daughter was named Singala.

I would like to spend my days in the service of makind, said Madhava
