Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Jaya Tirtha (Tikacharya)


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.
