from vilakkudi, a small hamlet near Rajamannargudi and belonged to 
EYUNNI vamsam and Bharadwaja gothram .

He learnt all sampradaya granthas from  Srirangam swamy, H.H. 
Vedantha Ramanuja Maha Desikan also known as Vazhuthur Andavan. He 
had prapatti done at  lotus feet of almighty by H.H.Srimath Vazhuthur 
Andavan. He was also initiated into the sanyasa asramam  by H.H.

Thirutthuraippoondi Andavan , most notable among them being Sri 
Raghavachariar Swamy(who later became the famous Srimath PeriAndavan) 
who  was initiated into sanyasasramam by Srimath  Thirutthuraippoondi
