Sri Madhvacharya Jayanthi 2017

Madhvacharya (1238-1317 C.E.) - Dashami Tithi of Ashwin Shukla Paksha is celebrated as Sri Madhva Jayanti or Madhvacharya Jayanthi. Sri Madhvacharya was born on the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashami (which is also known as Dussehra) in 1238 C.E. at Pajaka, a tiny hamlet near Udupi, Karnataka, India.

The followers of Madhvacharya do not document his death but his departure to Badri at the age of 79 in 1317 C.E. The day on which Sri Madhvacharya proceeded to Badri is celebrated as Madhva Navami which is also known as disappearance day of Madhva Acharya by his disciples.

Madhvacharya was the proponent of Dvaita Vedanta. It regards Brahman and individual souls as eternal and mutually separate entities. Hence the philosophy of Dvaita Vedanta is based on principles of dualism which is opposite to philosophy of Advaita Vedanta and Vishishta Advaita Vedanta.

The philosophy of Dvaita Vedanta is also known as Tattvavada - the Philosophy of Reality. It identifies God with Brahman completely and in turns with Vishnu or his various incarnations.
