============================================================

Since both were AchAryAs  together at the same time,
they were fondly called as pEriAndavan and
chinnAndavan by the sishyAs and admirers alike. This
period lasted for a very short duration though with
Srimath pEriAndavan reaching  parama padam within 4
months of Srimath chinnAndavan took up sanyAsA. 

Srimath chinnAndavan was serving as guiding light of
the sampradaya and authored rarest of several granthAs
when he was the AchAryA  of the periAsramam– They are
as follows:

1. AhnikArtha prakAsikai
2. Sri Jayanthi nirNayam
3. ukthyAchArya nishtA vichAram
4. sathpadha rakshai
5. JanmAshtami nirNayam
6. thathkrathu nyAya vichAram
7. AchArya sambhAvanA kramam
8. yathi dharama samucchayam
9. Aasowcha sangraham

Sishya parampara

Several erudite scholars became the disciples of
srimath chinnAndavan, foremost being

3. vidwAn uKKur  SrinivAsarAghavAchAr swami
4. Akkur SrinivAsAchAriAr swami

yAthrA

Srimath chinnAndavan traveled to Sri  kAnchi from
Srirangam and gave several sampradAyic pravachanams(
discourses) during His yAthrA and came back to
Srirangam.

age of 68 leaving behind grieving disciples in the
