Sri Brahmatantra Swatantra Parakala Guru Paramparaayai Nama:

Sri Parakala Swamy - 1406 ACE - 1424 ACE
-----------------------------------------
Sri Tritiya Parakala Swamy was the Mathaadhipati
from 1380 ACE till 1405 ACE. The successor of
Sri Tritiya Parakala Swamy was a yati who
was simply known as Sri Parakala Swamy !
Sadly, the only piece of information that has
been preserved over the years is the taniyan of
Swamy and some bits and pieces of his kaimkaryams.

Sri Parakala Swamy was known to have attracted countless
number of bhaktas and had administered the sacraments of
Sri Vaishnava Diksha on them. His taniyan runs as:

brahmatantram ramaavaasa guruviikshitam uttamam |
parakala gurum vande chirakaala dayaanidhim ||

One can see from his taniyan, that Swamy, in his
times was extremely gracious and known for his
ananta daya guNam.

Sri Vedanta Ramanuja Brahmatantra Swatantra
Parakala Maha Desikan (1425 ACE - 1440 ACE)

Sri Vedanta Ramanuja Swamy succeeded Sri
Parakala Swamy in the year 1425 ACE. Following
the path of his predecessors, he continued to
influence the Sri Vaishnava community with his
profound scholarship and teachings. Many thronged
to become his disciples. He followed pancha kala
patha and performed mangalashasanam at many
divya deshams. He was very strict in the
observance of anushtanams. He graced the acharya
peetam till the year 1440 ACE.
His taniyan runs as follows
