Additional Notes on Sri Sujanendra Theertharu
(sent by Sri Raghavendra Ritti)
1.He is the one, instrumental in brigining Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt to Nanajangud & it became the head qaurters of SRS Mutt. The story goes like this.
He was given ashram by Sri Subhodendra Theertharu, during a very crucial time when was not feeling well at Bommagatti near Mantralayam, Sri Sujanendra Theertaru started taking care of his guru & all mutt activities.
After his guru recoverd from the illness with Sri Digvijaya Rama & other mutt lanchans Sri sujanendra theertharu started for a sanchara & as well digvijay. After visiting several places he came to Nanjangud, Rudra devara Kshetra & pure advaitha place during that time. He was staying in a chatram in the town & was serving sri rudra devaru, the local people & pandits
were started teasing him as beeing madhwa yati serving rudra devaru. At that instance, swamiji composed Narayana para artha to Sri Rudra Chamaka made all the adviathins to swollow there words.
During his stay in the place Sri Trayambaka Shastri a scholar & a digdanthi pundit from Pune (During Peshwa regime ) visited Sri Mumadi Krishna raja wodeyar & invited his scholars for debate & made all the scholars of that time at Mysore samstanam to accept defeat. This made the King worry about he samstana's esteem & respect. During such time one the pundit informed king about the YathigaLu residing in Nanajangud, so without any further
thinking Maharaja with Trayambaka Shastri reached Nanjangud & requested swamiji to debate with Tryambaka Sastri. Then the debate went on vigorously for many days. It was looking that Sri Shastri was having the upper hand in the debate, one such time swamiji got a thought during his Ramadevara pooja so he requested to change the debate period from afternoon, immiditely sastri's debates started weakening & Sri Sujanendra Theertharu got a upperhand
& defeated shastri in the debate. The King got very happy with the win & offerred swamiji a Navaratna kantihara, Sawamiji immidiately given that to Shastri & asked king to have shastri in his court . After that King asked Sujanendra theertha to reside in his place & given the chatram where swamiji was staying to SRS Mutt & also donated huge land adjacent to that to the
mutt, He also granted various grama dana etc to Swamiji near Nanajangud.
Later invited his Guru Sri Subhodendra Teertharu to Nanjangud from Mantralayam. They did Sri Moolarama devara Pooja at King's palace at Mysore. From that day onwards special respect to SRS Mutt was framed from the devastanam ( Sri Srikanteshwara swamy) .
Even today we can feel the glimpses of that win in the temple. After that SRS Mutt got a base at Nanjangud & successors of Sujanendra teertharu started preachings from there.
2. He is regarded as Varunamsha sambhootharu & Amshavatara of Sri Dheerendra Theertharu.

a.Soujanendra pakshtavachedaka Vichara.
d.Tatvodyota vyakartha vichara

4. He visited kashi kestra & had a series of vAkhyArtha with the pundits, upheld the madwa philosophy & got
various awards / recognitions from them.
