 Dear devotees,
 namO nArAyaNa.

  In the previous posting, the chart didn't come out properly.
  Hence a second attempt.

  Please go through the following chart to have an idea
  of the KEtANDipaTTi SwAmi AchArya parampara, which
  belongs to the Munitraya AchArya Parampara.

  note : The (S) mark means that, the AchArya was a sannyAsi
         and the (G) mark means that, the AchArya was a
         gruhasta.

   Three SannyAsis viz. (1) SrInivAsa Muni,  (2) VazhuttUr SwAmi
   (VEdanta RAmAnuja Muni alias "VazhuttUr Andavan" alias
    "SrIrangam SwAmi") and (3) SrI SeeyAlam RanganAtamuni
   were disciples of SrI Thirukkudanthai GOpAladESikan, who
   was a gruhasta. Because of these three Munis, the AchArya
   Parampara that followed them came to be known as Munitraya
   AchArya Parampara.

   SrI Navaneetam KrishnamAchArya, SrI Garudapuram swAmi
   (who later became a sannyAsi) and SrI ChEttalUr NrusimhachArya
   (another very famous AchArya) were classmates while learning
   under SrI ThiruvahIndrapuram (Chinna) swAmi <SrI SrInivAsa
   RAmAnuja MahAdESIkan>.


   SrI Kapistalam DESikAchArya was another great scholar of the
   past. He learnt SrI BhAshyam under SrI KEtANDipaTTi SwAmi.
   SrI Kapistalam swAmi, who was a Professor in the Tirupati
   College, was instrumental in making UttamUr SwAmi join that
   college as his (junior) colleague.

   Since both UttamUr SwAmi and MadhurAntakam swami belongs to
   the AchArya parampara of SrI KEtANDipaTTi swAmi, they
   addressed themselves as brothers. Also, SrI UttamUr SwAmi
   with MadhurAntakam SwAmi as a classmate, learnt Sanskrit
   literature from SrI Garudapuram SwAmi.
