Jayadharma (Jaya-dharma Tirtha or Vijayadhvaja Tirtha)

1300s–1400s

Jayadharma appeared prior to 1420. As a boy he took sannyasa and traveled and preached incessantly. Thus in due time he became the seventh heir to the preceptorial seat (1434–48). Jaya-dharma wrote a commentary on the Srimad-Bhagavatam called Bhakti-ratnavali, by bringing out the dualist point of view in the line of Madhava. To this day, followers of Madhva hold to this devotional work as a standard reference. Jaya-dharma left the world in 1448. His samadhi is at Kanya Tirtha, Vrindavana.
