His Holiness is known for His great spiritual eminence, and is considered as one of the best traditional scholars of the time.

The history of Sri Sringeri Sarada Peetham starts from 820 AD from the time of Sri Adi Sankara Bhagavath Pada. Since then the Peetham is adorned and served by 35 Pontiffs in the past 12 centuries. They have all done dedicated service in propagating the Advaita philosophy and the values of Sanadhana Dharma.
