    Question Can anyone tell me about Madwacharya and Teekacharya? What was the debate between....

    Hi, I have heard about Madwacharya. Some of his philosophies have fascinated me. I'd like to know about him.
    I'd like to know who Teekacharya is, I've grown curious of his mentioning in a dvaitha song, it sounded exaggerating about him, even calling him a chandra in dvaitha philosophy (obviously, the surya is Madwacharya).
    I'd also like to know one more thing.... What was the debate between Teekacharya and Vidyaranya? I'm an advaithic aspirant myself and would like to know about it. Every advaitha student, teacher and philosopher has heard about Vidyaranya, so I'm curious about their debate.

    I'd like to mention one more thing, though I'm a student of advaitha, I still like dvaitha (but not to the extent of advaitha).
    I don't know who I am, nor what I am.
    I don't know what I need to know.
    I don't know who you are, nor what you are.
    All I know is that you love me, Oh Sarvathma.
    Lead me on the righteous path, so that I may reach you.

    Hi,

    JayaThirta also knows as Teekacharya biography is here...

    The famous debate with Shri Vidyaranya was not with Shri JayaThirta but with Shri Akshobhaya Thirta who was Shri JayaThirta's guru, with Shri Desika as the judge. The verdict of this debate is recorded as

    asinaa tattvamasinaa parajIvaprabhEdhinaa | vidyaaraNmam mahaaraNyam akShObykamunirachchinat |


    and the vijayaStampa which is still there at Mulbagal has this sloka encarved
