HISTORY

Amongst the disciples of Gururaja, three grandsons of his poorvashrama elder brother were prominent. Considering Venkannacharya of them as most deserving, Sri Gururaja bestowed
sanyasa and named him Yogeendra. Vasudevacharya and Mudduvenkatakrishnacharya, the remaining two disciples adorned the peetha subsequently. Yogeendra was a great scholar, intellectual. It has already been cited earlier that Venkannapant had re-conveyed the village Mantralaya to him. After his guru entered the Brindavan, Yogeendra made proper arrangements for regular poojas of Brindavan, stayed there for sometime and left on a tour. He defeated Kakashastri and others in debates at been cited earlier that Venkannapant had reconveyed the village Mantralaya to him.

After his guru entered the Brindavan, Yogeendra made proper arrangements for regular poojas of Brindavan, stayed there for sometime and left on a tour. He defeated Kakashastri and other in debates at Bhagyanagar. As Gururaja had moved away from Southern region, the swamiji went towards that region. After having a darshan of Sri Vijayeendra swamiji at Kumbhakonam, he came to Srirangam. The pilgrim of Srirangam was then under the administration of the Nayaks of Madurai. Muddalagadrinayaka, son of Vishwanathanayaka and grandson of Thirumalanayaka was ruling at Madurai then. In keeping with the tradition of the reverence, his ancestors had towards Mahasamsthana, he gifted a village ‘Arambhanna’ on the banks of the river Tamraparni and Kalla Mutt lying to the west of Chitra street in Srirangam on the most sacred day of Akshaya Thritheeya in Siddharthi Samvatsara (1679) dedicating it to Lord Krishna.1

Having got a suitable place to reside at the most sacred place like Srirangam, Yogeendratheertha settled down there itself and reached eternal abode on the tenth day of Magha Shuddha in Vibhava Samvatsara.
