VIDYARANYA

Vidyateertha

The preceptor of Kamakoti Peetha, Sri Vidyateertha, was also called Sarvajna Vishnu, Vidyesha, Vidyananda and Vidyashankara. He was a mine of worldly and other worldly knowledge. People believed that he was the incarnation of Dakshinamoorthy. It was the good fortune of Madhava to have had him as his teacher, and he earned his good will.

There was another piece of good luck awaiting him at Kanchi. That was the friendship of Venkatanatharya, Sudarshana Bhatta and Akshobhya Teertha, stalwarts in the Dwaita system.

During his childhood Madhava felt that he was born to achieve great things. He 'felt that he was not born just to get educated, to marry, beget children and to meet his end as usual like others.

His life had been shaped by teachers like Bharatikrishna. Shankarananda and Srikanthanatha. His ability had been greatly perfected by his teachers. He had patriotism, firmness, and service mindedness. Practical sense, tolerance towards other religions. Righteousness, political awareness and the desire to work for the good of the world.
