  • Prathivadhi Bhayankaram Annan was a Sri Vaishnava Acharya,Tamil and Sanskrit scholar, the composer of the popular Venkateswara Suprabhatam. He appeared in this world bearing the name Hasthigirinathar Annan in the year AD 1361. He was one of the prominent disciples of Manavala Mamunigal, belonged to a distinguished line of "Acharya Purushas" and had a large number of followers. Annan composed many hymns, of which the popular Venkatesa Suprabhatham, Venkatesa Stotram, Venkatesa Prapatti and Venkatesa Mangalashasanam are recited daily at the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple at the wee-hours of the day to wake up the Lord. The rendition of the hymns by Smt. M S Subbulakshmi is played everyday in millions of households in India and abroad. Annan was born in Kanchipuram, and initiated into the Sri Vaishnava Sampradayam by his father, who was the 10th generation descendant of Mudumbai Nambi one of the 74 simhasanadipathis appointed by Ramanuja. He later became a disciple of Vedanta Desika's son Nayana-Varadacharya. Nayana-Varadacharya him the name "Prathivathi Bhayangaram Annan". Annan was acknowledged as an authority on Sanskrit literature and spiritual discourses in those times. He is said to be the most prominent scholar in South India of his time, and was widely respected throughout India. After studying Sribhashyam from Nayana-Varadacharya, Anna went to Tirumala Venkateswara Temple and did devotional service to Lord Venkateswara. At the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple, Annan heard the glories of Manavala Mamuni and about his nectarine discourses on the works of the Azhwars and the doctorines of Sri Vaishnava Sampradayam. Following this, Annan became the disciple of Manavala Mamuni and learnt the entire commentaries of these works from him a Srirangam. At the time Annan surrendered at the feet of Manavala Mamuni, Manavala Mamuni gave him the dasya nama "Sri Vaishnava Dasan" seeing his humility towards the devotees of the Lord. Further, Manavala Mamuni, after seeing Annan's prowess in Sribhashyam, bestowed him the Sribhashya Simhasanam and the title 'Sribhashyacharya'. Annan also served as one of the ashta-dik-gajas of Manavala Mamuni. People often confuse Prathivadhi Bhayankaram Annan with a 20th-century scholar-Acharya Prathivadhi Bhayankaram Annangaracharya, who was one of the first acharyas to publish the entire works of Sri Vaishnava acharyas like Azhwars, Ramanuja, Vedanta Desika, Manavala Mamuni etc., in the first half of the 20th Century. The twelve divya Saligrama silas and the Sri-Bhu Sametha Ranganatha Swamy idol that were once worshiped by him are now being worshiped by Sri Prativadhi Bhayankaram Raghavacharyulu, a fifteenth generation descendant in his lineage in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. Popular Indian Playback Singer P. B. Sreenivas was one of his descendants in his lineage in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh. (en)
