That was an interesting note from Sri Mani on "Mahacharya". There is 
another great AchAryA with the name of "mahAchArya". He is none other 
that the great sOLasimhapuram DoddAchAr swamy. It is for this same 
swamy, for who, even todate, in Kanchipuram (Thiruatthigiri), the 
famous "DoddAchAr sEvai" is being done on GarduasEvai day.

He was a contemporary of Appaya dIkshitar and was the most 
instrumental person in refuting all the vidhanDAvAdhams of Appayya 
dIkshitar about Siva parathvam. Actually DoddAchAr swamy always kept 
dIkshitar at the bay and he couldn't succeed in his mission to write 
vyAkhyAnams for the upanishads based on Siva parathvam. The mAdhvAs 
also played an important role in this aspect to keep dIkshitar at the 

DoddAchAr swamy's kainkaryams towards Sri AkkArakkani emberumAn of 
sOLasimhapuram are enormous. I will attempt to write about it later.
