Jaya Tirtha (Tikacharya)

1300s–1400s

Jaya Tirtha appeared (1348) as the son of a high-ranking military man. In 1368, at the age of twenty, Jaya Tirtha was initiated and received sannyasa from Akshobhya Tirtha, who changed the disciple's name from Dhondo Pantraya Raghunatha to Jaya Tirtha. Philosophically a genius, Jaya Tirtha toured all over India refuting Advaita Vedanta philosophy. Jaya Tirtha wrote about twenty books, including commentaries on Madhavacarya's works. He left this world in 1388. His samadhi (tomb) is beside that of Padmanabha Tirtha in Karnataka.
