Mruttika Vrundavana of Padmanabha Tirtharu –  He installed the Mruttika Vrundavana of Sri Padmanabha Tirtharu, the moola yathi for Sripadaraja Mutt at Mulabagilu.

He had done the 600th Aradhana of Sripadarajaru in a great style, with throughout the year aradhana at Mulbagilu and other places.  The 600th year was a memorable which has to be remembered for a long long time.    During that period he has honoured almost all Madhwa pandits and honoured those who are unrecognised also.

Sri Vignananidhi Tirtharu has done the Mruttika Vrundavana Pratistapane of our Shakambari Nagara Rayara Mutt on 25.6.1993.  He was a regular visitor to Our Shakambari Rayara Mutt.  He was proudly telling that our mutt is a branch for Madhwa Tatvajnana. He has done the Gopinatha Devara pooja in our Mutt almost every year since the inauguration.  He was claiming that our Shakambari Nagar Rayara Mutt is  his home town (tavaru mane).

He was an expert in Sankya shastra.

He installed Sripadaraja Mruttika Vrundavana at Rajarajeswari Nagar, Bangalore

He founded the National Institute for Vedic Sciences in 2001 with the vision of building peace, harmony and happiness

Sri Devendra Tirtharu & Sri Vijnananidhi Tirtharu –    Sri Vijnananidhi Tirtharu was very much fond of Sri Devendra Tirtharu, who spent most of his time in Mysore.  As Sri Devendra Tirtharu was not from any parampare, he had no place for his vrundavana.  At that time came Sri Vijnanidhi Tirtharu who gave the place for his Vrundavana at Mulabagilu near Narasimha Tirtha.   He was telling in the first aradhana day of Sri Devendra Tirtharu that “Sri Devendra Tirtharu got sanyasa from vairagya, whereas most sanyasis take sanyasa and then try to get vairagya.  Such was the greatness of Devendra Tirtharu”.
