Sengalipuram Brahmasri Anantharama Deekshithar was born on 02-07-1903 at Pathur village in His maternal grand father’s house in Thanjavur District (in the month of Aadi of Sobhakrit year in Anuradha star) to Sri Subramanya Deekshithar and Smt. Subbalakshmi. Sri Deekshithar learnt Vedas from His father, Sri Subramanya Deekshithar.
He mastered all the Saastras ordained by our Sages. He had His course on Tatra Saastra from Sri Vishnupuram Swaminatha Sastrigal who also taught it to Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal (Sri Paramacharyal) of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt. Apart from complete knowledge of Saastra, Vedas and Astrology, He mastered out Puranas. In giving Purana discourse, He utilized it mainly to propagate Vaidika Dharma and the cult of Bhakthi. His propagation of Sri Narayaneeyam and the glory of Sri Guruvayurappan continues to draw lakhs of devotees to Guruvayur.
On the divine wishes and direction of Sri Guruvayurappan, the presiding deity, He has performed many Srimadh Bhagavatha Saptaahams at Guruvayur. The Sringeri Sankaracharya Sri Abhinava Vidya Teertha Swamigal too eagerly participated in the Navaaham conducted at Tiruprayar Sri Rama Temple at Kerala, as this was performed as ordered by the presiding deity, Sri Rama Himself. In fact, every one was thrilled to know the personal involvement of the Lord in the Navaaham. His discourse attracted tens of thousands of apt listeners, which was unusual till then.
The available portions of the recordings of His discourses rendered in public were brought out in cassettes as per the gracious directions of Sri Kanchi Paramacharya. Now, the contents of the tapes have been processed using softwares and the result is a far improved audio quality. The improved contents are brought now in both the forms of Compact Discs and also of cassettes. The proceeds are to be used for Sri Adhishtaanam of Sri Deekshithar who attained Sidhi on 30-10-1969 (in the month of Thula, Krishna Sashti tithi) after taking Sanyasa on 21-10-1969. Daily poojas are performed at Sri Adhishtaanam at Chinnathirupathi, Salem Town. His divine presence is still felt there where He answers the prayers of devotees.
