  1. Very useful and informative. Why is the order of Acharyas in the first link not in time sequence? Any significance? Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!

    1. Not sure why it is not in the chronological order. Thanks for the kind words.

    2. The first link is sorted based on the Months in which those acharyas attained siddhi. these details are available in the backside of the Monthly calender issued by Srimatam.

    3. It is not in chronological order as it was printed in Sri Matam Calendar 2013 as per the Periyavaas Jayanthi and Aaradhanas accordingly by month...

  2. The first link : Its pages are from the 'back pages' of the Vijaya Samvatsaram (2013-14) Calender of Sri Matam. It is a monthly calendar. The backside of each month contains the names of the Acharyas who attained siddhi during that month.

    Hence the absence of the time sequence or chronological order'

    A lot of gratitude for the in-depth research and compilation work has to be given to Nerur BrahmaShri Shriramana Sharma. A great repository of knowledge, especially on Srimatham Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, he has taken great pains to gather information from various authentic sources, about which he explains in the above-quoted webpages.

  9. Another source detailing Sri Kamakoti Acharaya Parampara in Tamil: "Jagatguru Sri Sankaracharya Swamigal Tiru Marubu Arul Varalaru'. It is penned by (Kalvettu) K. Mahadevan, published by Sri Kamakoti Research Centre, Kumbakonam during 1988. A deeply researched book detailing info around (1) the Date of Sri Adi Sankara, (2) his connection witch Kanchi and (3) the 'avichinna' Sri Kamoti Parampara
