Dear Sri Gopalaswamy : ThirukkOshtiyUr ( Sri GOshtipuram ) Sowmya NaarAyaNAchArya Swami lived for 65 years on this earth from 1878-1943 . He is one of the legends of his times and today too for his illustrious contributions as an authority on Sri Kosams of Sri VaishNavism . He was born 19 years before Abhinava Desika Sri UttamUr VeerarAghavAchArya Swamy , ( Grandfather of our Sri Anand ) , the savant who tirelessly examined the Sri Kosams of earlier AchAryAs to establish the authenticity of texts before commenting on them .UttamUr Swamy used Sri Goshtipuram Swami's tradition as one of the most authentic one .Such is the greatness of this Swami from GOshtipuram . Dr. S.M.S. Chari , the author of many clear texts on Sri VaishNavism is a disciple of Sri Goshtipuram Swami and had kalkshEpam of Sri Rahasya Traya Saaram under Goshtippuram Swami . Regarding the latter's AchArya parampara , it is traced in the AchArya Vamsa Vruksham , a chronology released during the occasion of UttamUr Swami's centenial celebration this January .Some one , who has that text can trace the paramparai .
