In the Vadhula race. Appachiaranna is the direct decendant of Sri Mudaliandan Swami and occupies the nineth (9) position in the order. Swami Appachiaranna was addresed by Swami Manavala Mamunigal as “Nam Appachiarannao”.
Sri manavala mamunigal gave two similar vigrahas of sri swami manavala mamunigal to sri Appachiaranna (one for the worship of Sri Appachiaranna Swamy himself and the other for Sri Vanamamalai jeer Swami, the acharya of Appachiaranna) , made from the theerthapathram used by sri swami emperumanar received by sri manavala mamunigal in a damged condition and later named as ‘RAMANUJAN’.
Sri Manavala Mamunigal also gave Appachiaranna the idol of “Sri Teemanam Keduthar”, the Vishnu worshipped by Sri Atkondavilli Jeer. As directed by Swami Manavala Mamunigal, Appachiaranna lived at Kancheepuram in the Thirumaligai of sri swami mudaliandan performing Nithya Thiruvaradhanam to “Sri Azhaithu Vazhivithavar” (the Moorthi given to kandhadai thozzppar by perulala Vishnu himself) one among the shad bheras of kanchi Perarulalan. In the foot steps of Swami Ramanuja, Appachiaranna also spent his life time doing the Salaikinaru Kainkaryam for the thirumanjanam of Perarulalan and Perundevi Thayar. Such is the Mahatvam of Sri Appachiaranna Swami, the nineth decendant.
