avathAra sthalam:  thirumazhisai

AchAryan: narasimhAchAryar (His own father)

Born in thirumazhisai (mahIsAra kshEthram), he was named vIrarAghavan by his father narasimhAchAryar. He was born in the glorious vAdhula lineage of mudhaliyANdAn. His grand father is identified by himself as raghuvarAchAryar in his sthOthra grantham named bhakthisArOdhayam. He is also known as vAdhUla vIrarAgavaAchAryar. He was born in the year 1766 AD.

He was most intelligent and completed his own yajUr vEdha shAkais by the time he became 15 years old along with completing tharkam, vyAkaraNam, mImAmsam, sAnkhyam, pAthanjali yOgam, etc and became an expert in jyOthisham, sangItham, bharatha nAtyam, etc. By the time he became 20 years old, he was an expert and authority in all sAsthrams. He also learns rahasya granthams, etc., from his father and started writing divine literature establishing the essential principles of our sath sampradhAyam. He also learnt under vAdhUla varadhAchAryar and srIrangAchAryar (who went on several dhivyadhEsa yAthrais and defeated many pseudo-scholars in debates).

He lived for a very short period of 51 years and ascended to paramapadham on Ishwara year, ippasi month, shukla paksha chathurdhasi.

One of his most important works is the arumpadham (detailed commentary) for mAmunigaL‘s vyAkyAnam for piLLai lOkAchAryar‘s srIvachana bhUshaNam. His other grantham, bhakthisArOdhayam beautifully depicts the life of thirumazhisai AzhwAr.
