Vidya-nidhi (Vidyadhiraja) Tirtha


Vidyanidhi lived from 1348 until 1412. Prior to his becoming a disciple of Jaya Tirtha, his name was Krishnabhatta. In due course he became the successor to the "Vedanta pitha," the seat of office by which one is recognized as a spiritual preceptor. The only written works accredited to Vidyanidhi Tirtha are a commentary on the Bhagavad-gita and a commentary on Vishnu-sahasra-nama, which is the first recorded commentary written on it from the standpoint of Dvaita philosophy (dualism).
