Navalpakkam Sri Ramanuja Tatacharya (DOB April 16, 1928) is one of the senior authorities in the fields of Nyaya, Vyakarana, Mimamsa and
Vedanta. He hails from a very respectable family belonging to the village of Navalpakkam in North Arcot District, Tamil Nadu renowned for its assiduous
pursuit of studies in the Vedas and the Sastras and for devoted practice of their teachings. Being the illustrious son of an illustrious father, the late
Krishnasvami Tatacharya, a doyen of Sanskrit learning, his study began under him and continued at Sri Venkateswara Oriental College in Tirupati, Sanskrit
College in Sriperumbudur, and Devanatha Tatacharya Swami and University of Madras. By the age of 16 he became a full-fledged Naiyayika after which he
attained proficiency in Vyakarana, Mimamsa and Vedanta effortlessly.

Tatacharya’s works can be classified under four heads: critical editions, commentaries, independent works, and research papers. His critical editions are: Tattvachintamani of Gangaesa with the commentary Prakasa of Rucidattamisra, and the two commentaries Nyayasikhamani of Ramakrishnananda and Tarkachudamani of Dharmarajadhvarindra on Prakasa. Jnapakasangraha of Nagesa is another significant critical edition. Among his commentaries are Balabodhini which is on the Panchalakshana Gadadhari, Vivarana, which is a commentary on the Vyadhikarana Gadadhari, Bhavabodhini on the Pakshata Gadadhari, Bhavadipika on the Avayava Gadadhari, Balapriya, a commentary on the Prakasika of Nilakantha on the Tarkasangraha Dipika of Annambhatta, Rajivollasa on the Dinakari on the Siddhanta Muktavali, Vivrti, a commentary on the text of Vyakarana entitled Jnapakasangraha of Nagesa, Bhagavadgunaratnapetika, which is a commentary on the Gopalasahasranamastotra, and Tatparyaprakasika, a lucid commentary on the Satadushani of Vedanta Desika. His independent works are Pratyaksha- tattva- cintamani- vimarsa, Jnapakasangraha- parisishta, and Sabdabodhamimamsa. As honorary professor at the French Institute of Pondicherry he completed the project “An enquiry into Indian theories of verbal cognition” which was published in four volumes. His research papers are too many to be enumerated.

He wrote a commentary in felicitous Sanskrit on the Panchalakshnana Gadadhari, Kanchi Periyavaal  Senior Sage of Kanchi in 1981 when he was camping at Satara, after going through NSR Swamy work, Sage of Kanchi  told  “I am keeping my life long solely with the desire to see the commentaries of Tatacharya on the texts of Gadhadhari. If NSR Swami does not interpret these texts through his commentaries, they would, in course of time, cease to have anything but a matter of historical interest.” As graciously directed by him Tatacharya wrote commentaries on the Gadhadhari on the Vyadhikarana, Pakshata and Avayava.

In recognition of his scholarship the President of India conferred the Certificate of Honour for Proficiency in Sanskrit on him and many religious institutions have honoured him with awards. His simple living, high thinking and austere habits have won the admiration of scholars.

It is time for print media and visual media to enlighten the public on such great scholars of India as a diversion from the routine praising of movie stars, talecasting interviews with them,murder and rape issues repeatedly. Atleast we could come to know from Nationalist news of HK.

Salutes this great master !
Prananmams to this vandhya guru. We come to know of such great people only when foreign countries honor them recognizing their immense contributions towards our own culture. Atleast the thinking world is now recognizing Indian culture as a world heritage and valuable gift for humanity.
Salutes this great master !
