Here is a write-up about Swami

Mahavidvan Perukaranai Madabushi Chakravarthyachariar Swamy is today among the few outstanding exponents of Vishishtadvaitha philosophy established and propagated by Shri Ramanuja who upheld the primacy of Vedas and refuted successfully the prevalent materialistic and nithilistic schools of thought.  With a Nyaya Siromani from the Samskrit University Tirupathi in the year 1944, Swamy specialized in Tarka, Vedanta and Sahitya under eminent teachers like Shri Uttamur Viraraghavacharyar, Shri Neelameghacharyar, Shri D.T. Thathacharyar Swamy and Shri Ramanatha Sastrigal.  The culminating tutelage in Shastras came about under the 42nd Pontiff of Shri Ahobila Mutt lasting for over six years.  Swamy has worked as a teacher for a few years and served also as Principal of Maduranthakam Samskrit College.  He was an examiner and an active participant in several Vidvat Sadas for many years.  He has authored several works in both Samskrit and Tamil and has guided and is still guiding a number of students in research and higher studies.  His discourses on Shri Bhashya, Shrimad Rahasyathraya Sara, Shrimad Ramayana and Tiruppavai veritably feast the mind and the spirit of one and all.  Among the many honours and titles conferred on him unsought, the title of Sara Saragna (Commander of quintessential knowledge) awarded by the 42nd Pontiff Shri Ahobila Mutt is the one he cherishes most, coming as it did from an esteemed scholar-saint of the last century.  He is also an Asthana  Vidvan of Shri Ahobila Mutt.

The Sribhashyachandrika, a Sanskrit commentary on Sribhashya is his magnum opus reflecting as it does to many subtle nuances and implication learnt from Shri Alaghiasingar (42) during the Kalakshepa periods.  His Tamil commentary on Tiruppavai is an exhaustive treatise which is a boon not only to first-time learners but also to the many exponents of Tiruppavai, particularly during the December-January season every year.

Swamy, 89, is presently at Shri Vedantha Desika Bhavanam, 27 Venkatesa Agraharam, Mylapore, Chennai 600004.  His lectures and discourses at the Bhavanam attract people, both young and old, who seek the verities of true knowledge, the riches of the mind and the solace of the spirit.  Despite his deep scholarship, Swamy has a unique and simple way of imparting instruction to people at all levels.  He lives a simple, detached and austere life, unmindful of the worldly riches.  There is, indeed, a singular appropriateness about the Swamy living and teaching now in the Bhavanam named after the great scholar Shri Vedanta Desika, who was as much known for his utter simplicity and detachment as for his deep and abiding multifaceted knowledge.knowledge.

  2. Dear Swami, I am sorry to learn the demise of Sri u.Ve.P.Chakravarthi Swami, an erudite Ubhaya Vedanta Scholar of SriVaishnavism. I first met him and arranged upanyasam at Pondy in 1991. He was our acharya Sri U.Ve.T.A.Krishnamacharya Swami class mate in Tirupati. This is is an irreparable loss to our sampradaya. He gave me his works, particularly on Sri Ramayana three volumes, which are oasis of information and authoritatively establishes the episodes. In 1992, he wrote an appreciation letter on my book Panneerayirappadi a Study, a doctoral thesis published in book form. In those days, our Swami also used to mention his unostentatious nature and erudition. I personally feel for his demise, as he blessed me then. adeyen madhurakavi dasan. m.varadarajan
