Brahmanya Tirtha

1300s–1400s

Brahmanya Tirtha appeared around 1460. He was the third descendant from Rajendra Tirtha in the line of senior disciples of Vidyadhiraja Tirtha. Purushottama lived mostly at Channapatna or Abbur in Karnataka. He had his own monastery, which he later entrusted to his disciple Sridhara Tirtha. This monastery survives today and is called the Kundapura Mutt. Purushottama's only accredited literary work was a gloss on the Tatparya of Jaya Tirtha. He departed the world in 1476 or 1478.
