Narahari (or Narahari Tirtha)

1300s–1400s

Narahari (born A.D. 1206) became a king in Kalinga, Orissa, and he was glorified for his statesmanship and swordsmanship. However, even while performing kingly duties, he preached Vaishnavism and made many devotees among the nobility of Orissa and Andhra Pradesh. Sri Narahari wrote fifteen books, but only traces of his Gita Bhasya and Bhavaprakashika survive.
