Thank you Subbu-ji.
Does Sri.Jayendra Swamiji personally take classes to Sri.Vijayendra Swamiji like Sri.Bharati Tirtha Swamiji to Vidhusekhara Ji? I am not aware of Kanchi mutt.
Yes. Br.Sri. VR Ramachandra Sastry who is the father of VR Gowrishankar, used to teach tarka to Abhinava Vidya Tirtha Swamiji. He was also Ph.D guide to my sanskrit teacher who evaluated the doctoral thesis work in sanskrit. The Ph.D thesis was 'Atma-darshanam'.

Vidwat sabhā-s in Kanchi Mutt do
take place even now. Many scholars who come to Sringeri for
the Ganapati Vakyartha sadas go to Kanchi too. During
Chaturmasya, MM Sri Krishnamurthi Sastrigal of Chennai goes
to Kanchi every day to conduct shāstra pātham.
Even in Sringeri, there
has been the case of MM Sri Ramachandra Sastry teaching
Tarka, etc. to Jagadguru Sri Abhinava Vidytirtha Swamiji
soon after his sannyasa. Jagadguru Sri Chandrashekhara
Bharati Swamiji was taught by scholars such as Vidwan Sri

Just expressing a small doubt. May be, off the topic !
I am aware that in Sringeri, the mahasannidhanam takes
personal care in prasthAna-traya adhyayana &
to His successor as well as to deserved disciples. His
Holiness Bharati Tirtha Swamiji Himself is a great
in tarka shAstra and takes delight in reading shAstras that
are prescribed for highly advanced sadhakas.
Swamiji mastered both purva & uttara mimAmsa in no
time. Now, His Holiness is nurturing the successor
and taking personal care in terms of anushtana, mantra japa
and shAstra adhyayana.
Is the similar thing observed in Kanchi Mutt & other
AmnAya mutts like Puri & Dwaraka? Rarely I see acharyas
Kanchi & Dwaraka engaging in shAstra chintana and
prasthAna-traya-bhAsya chintana. I have never seen
Sri.Jayendra Swamiji teaching personally the shAstrAs to
Bala Swamiji (or is it done privately in serene
My vedic & sanskrit teacher used to say that
Mahaperiyaval used to take personal care to deserved
and used to take classes on prasthAna-traya but somehow this
sort of seriousness is lacking among the present ones.
Kanchi (aka Kumbakonam) mutt used to conduct 'advaita
sabha' when stalwarts of advaita siddhAnta used to
Similarly, with Swarupananda Ji of Dwaraka. They are
tilted more towards pravrutti & laukika ways rather
prasthAna-traya-bhAsya adhyayana & adhyApana.
As far as I know, Sringeri is the crest-jewel among the
among the mutts that is committed to adhyayana &
of prasthAna-traya. Other ashrams like Arsha Vidya Trust,
Chinmaya Mission, Kailash Ashrama, Dakshinamurti Mutt
are also teaching the Sankara literature to the sadhaks.
Just thinking aloud !
