History of Math

Shree Narayan Teerth Swamiji had established the arch Mutt in the Varanasi region, in the absence of any clear perception re¬garding the existing and ideal relations between the Mutt and the society. The primary objective behind the establishment of a Mutt would be solely to raise the banner of one's sect in a leading place of pilgrimage and to provide a secure shelter to the pilgrims who venturing forth to remote lands in search of spiritual solace and benediction. Nonetheless his great venture had also launched a new tradition since This was the initial Mutt of the Vaishnav sect of Saraswat Brahmins.
Having thus established the first Mutt at Varanasi, Shree Narayan Teerth Swamiji returned to Udupi. After some time, the venerable Guru Shree Ramchandra Teerth Swamiji having recovered from his ailment believed to be incurable also returned to his own Mutt. On seeing Shree Narayan Teerth, He was in dilemma. The Dravid Brahmins wanted him to rescind the authority over the Peetha which was about to be granted to Shree Narayan Teerth; while he himself was aware of the worth of the Vatu who had served him so well during his pilgrimage and who having taken diksha as his disciple had planted the banner of his glory in the holy region of Varanasi.
As a way out, the revered Guru appointed Shree Vidyanidhi Teerth as his successor and advised Shree Narayan Teerth to orga¬nize the Saraswat Brahmin community and to create a separate Mutt tradition. Accordingly, Shree Narayan Teerth arrived at Bhatkal and having Estabished a Mutt premises there began the spread of faith among the Saraswat community in Parashuram Kshetra.
At this time Bhatkal was under Keladi Dynasty. Kelady rulers accepted Shri Narayan Teertha as there guru and Honored with the “Vader” Title. Hence forth our guru parampara has a title of Vader added to the names of Swameejis like Shri Narayan Teertha Shripad Vader Swamiji”
