A Ready-reckoner On Some Prominent Acharyas

Dear Fellow-Bhagavathas,

Acharyas are accorded an exalted status in our Sampradaya so much so that Lord Sriman Narayana Himself chose to be the first among them and He was followed by Piraatti, Vishvaksena and Nammazhwar (Who has a dual role of Azhwar as well as an Acharya) in that order.

In Note No. 44 a few months ago, we presented a tabular-column ready-reckoner about Azhwars, drawing from data compiled by Swami Desika in his Prabandha Saaram. Similarly, here we will take a look at some of the prominent Acharyas, starting with Nathamunigal till Kumara Varadacharya.

Here goes the table and we hope it serves to remind us of our illustrious Acharyas, their Thirunakshathrams and their deeds and works.
