The Guru parampare of Rayara Matha

All the Madhwa mathas trace their origin to Hamsanamaka Paramathma. He is the first among the pre-Madwa gurus in the Guru Parampare.  

Madhwacharya was a disciple of Achyutapreksha and it is from him that the Dwaitha or dualism concept flowed in the 12th century.

After Madhwacharya disappeared from the AnantheshwaraTemple, the reigns of the srimatha were taken over by Padmanabha Theertha.     

It was during the period of Vidyadhiraja Theertha that the first break if the matha took place. If Kavindra Theertha continued with the Sri Matha, Rajendra Theertha who had been initiated earlier went on to found the (Sosale) Vyasa Raja Matha.

BNK Sharma, the Dwaitha scholar, says the second split took place during the time of Ramachanrda Theertha. The matha was divided between Vidyanidhi Theertha and Vibhudendra Theertha. It is from this line of seers we get Vijendra Theertha, Sudhindra Theertha and Raghavendra Swamy.

 

The following is the parampare of the Raghavendra Swamy Matha.
