 namO nArAyaNa!

 Dear all,

 Sad to hear the news from SrI TA Varadan - which would 
 be much more for him, since swAmi is his 
 AchArya's younger brother.

  Just for Info sake :

  SrI TA KrishNamAchArya learnt NyAya SAstra from 
  SrI "abhinava dESika" UtthamUr VIrarAghavAchArya, the 
  greatest authority of NyAya SAstra of his times. aDiyEn
  has heard from scholars and SrI-VaishNavas at Tirupathi 
  regarding the reverence SrI KrishNamAchArya has for 
  SrI UtthamUr SwAmi, not only as his NyAya-SAstra AchArya Or
  as a stalwart in Ubhaya-VEdAnta, but also as a SrI-VaishNava
  of great conduct and character. 
  
  Incidentally, SrI VELukkuDi VaradAchArya of great fame also 
  learnt NyAya SAstra under SrI UtthamUr SwAmi. 

  Other illustrious scholars who studied NyAya SAstra under 
  SrI UtthamUr SwAmi (that aDiyEn can remeber this moment) are :
  
  * SrI Villivalam NArAyaNAchArya (pUrvAshrama elder brother of 
                                   current Azhagiyasi~ngar)

  * SrI PerukkAraNai ChakravarthAchArya (SrI Ahobila Muth)

  * SrI SrIdharAchArya (alias Shivprasad Dwivedi for loukika
                        purposes;SrI-VaishNava AchArya in 
                        North-India)

  * SrI NAvalpAkkam S RAmAnuja TAthAchArya

  * SrI ChEttalUr SrIvatsA~nkAchArya

  There are many more scholars - from all schools of vEdAnta -
  who studied under SrI UtthamUr SwAmi. The above is only a 
  selected list.
