Vyasa Tirtha

1300s–1400s

Vyasa Tirtha appeared around 1460 to 1478 as Yati-raja Sumati, in Bannur, a village in Mysore. He became a disciple of Brahmanya Tirtha. In South India he established 732 temples of Hanuman and Rama. Vyasa Tirtha was very learned and defeated many leading scholars. His literary contributions include the Nyayamrita (a work on Vedanta philosophy), Sri Vishnu Samhita, and numerous poems and songs based on the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Mahabharata, and Ramayana. He departed the world in 1539.
