K. Sreekrishna writes: * could you please tell exact name and time of your ancestor who * composed V.Suprabhatam? Sri Prativaadi Bhayankaram Anna (c. 15th-16th centuries) composed the Venkatesa Suprabhatam, Prapatti, and Mangalam. He was one of the 8 chief students of Sri Manavaala Mamunigal, but he also learnt Sribhashya from Brahmatantra Svatantra Jiyar, the main student of Sri Vedanta Desika. Sri P.B. Anna is the ancestor of Kanchi P.B. Annangarachariar, a great acharya of modern times who has published many granthas of the sampradaya. Mani P.S. There is a reference to "saumya-jaamaatr muni" at the end of one of the Venkatesa stotrams. That is a reference to Sri Manavaala Mamunigal.
