Sri Vidyaranya (Vidyāraṇya), the head of the Śṛṅgerī Pītha from 1380-1386 CE, was one of the foremost sages in the tradition of Advaita-Vedanta. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Vijayanagara empire that played a critical role in preserving the Dharma in southern India during the tumultuous medieval period.
Vidyaranya's younger brother was his predecessor as the head of the Śṛṅgerī Pītha, under the yogapaṭṭa of Bharati Krishna Tirtha (Bhāratī Kṛṣṇa Tīrtha). Under the leadership of the two great teachers, the Śṛṅgerī Pītha enjoyed a period of eminence with flourishing scholarship and spiritual attainment.
