Vedanta Studies

Sri Vishnu Tîrtha pursued his advanced spiritual studies under the Sri I.G. VenkataRamanachar( (Sri Vyasatatvajnaru) in holy Mantralayam and  became an expert in Shastra, Veda

Attained Vairaagya thru purandara dasara devara nama:

Once while Jayatirtha was sitting in his house over a cot, a Dasaru who was passing by chanting the kirtanas of Sri Purandara dasaru sang those lines

“Mancha Baradu, Madadi Baralu, Kanchu Kannadi Baradu,
Sanchitathi Dravya Baradu Munche Maadiro dharmava. “

ಮಂಚ ಬಾರದು | ಮಡದಿ ಬಾರಳು |ಕಂಚು ಕನ್ನಡಿ ಬಾರದು |
ಸಂಚಿತಾರ್ತದ ದ್ರವ್ಯ ಬಾರದು | ಮುಂಚೆ ಮಾಡಿರೊ ಧರ್ಮವ |

– Cot, wife and children, Mirror and other accessory show items, monetary earnings and material pleasures will not come with YOU; first you follow Dharma only that will come.

Those words transformed Jayathirtha’s life.

Jayatirtha immediately renounced Samsara life. He passed all his Samsara duties on to his Son and accepted the 3rd order of Ashrama which is the Vanprastha-ashrama and he became Avadhuta.
