  1. namaste,

    A good informative site.

    I have my own doubts on following:
    1. Matha – Vyasaraja Matha, Mulabagal, Karnataka
    It should be just Vyasaraja Mutt. SVM is / was never in Mulbagal. Sri Vyasarajaru was at MB only for his vidyarjane with Sri Sripadara Rajaru.

    2. Avatara of – Prahlada
    You may want to state – Moola avatara of Shankhu karna

    3. Sanyasa – not known
    He is also a bala sanyasi, at the age of 6.
    Sri Brahmanya theertharu did his munji.

  2. Namaste Sri Harish,

    Thanks for these inputs. I have edited the page and included your suggestions.

    Many thanks!
    Regards, Hari

  3. Namaskara ,
    Interesting fact is that all the bala sanyasi ,like vyasaraja,vadiraja,vijayendra teertha ,were immidiately after birth , taken in a gold plate (avoiding contact with earth- bhupatana) to the matha and there by raised there as futute pontiffs.

    perhaps bhupatana induces rajoguna .(detrimental to sanyasi)

    regards
    chiraan
