Even though he was the direct shishyaru of Raghottamaru, he did not accepted the Peetadhipathva, leaving it to Sri Vedavyasa Tirtharu,  He was always touring through various theertha kshetraas for the dharma prachara, Paata to Sri Yadavaryaru and other disciples.

He had taught the following Shloka to his Shishyaru Sri Yadavaryaru :

Poorvashrama name – Seenappa Nayak son of  Raghappa NayakEven though he took ashrama from Raghottama Tirtharu, he did not took the peeta of Uttaradhi mutt.  That is why his name is not found in the Parampare list of Uttaradimutt.

Since he was a bidi sanyasi, i.e., without any Mutt Peetadhipathitwa,  he never called himself Thirtharu. It is very clearly written on the title of the book that this was written by VEDESHA BHIKSHU and not TEERTHARU.

Lakshmi Narasimha is protecting me from front, Krishna is protecting me from behind, Rama and lakshmana are protecting me from either sides. He was chanting the above shloka all the times.

Once, when Yadavaryaru was a trader, who was dealing gold ornaments,  some thieves who came to attack Yadavaryaru for theft of the gold and jewellery of the pooja items  which he was carrying,  ran away.  They had seen four strong men protecting him, which Yadavaryaru himself could not see.    As the thieves who came to rob him ran away, some people asked him as to who are all behind him.   Then he went to his gurugalu and asked him as to who are all there near him.  Then gurugalu told him that it is because of the importance of the shloka which he was chanting Narasimha devaru, and krishna roopi paramathma were protecting him from front and back and rama and lakshma were protecting on his sides.  Thus he was protected on all the sides.
