Srila Bhaktisidhantsaraswati Thakur

While on tour he collected all the information about the rites and rules of Vedic tridanda Vaishnava sannyasa from a Ramanujatridandi swami at Perambadur. Wherever he would go in his travels he would lecture, write and debate the learned panditas of the day. He soon acquired such a reputation that his name would strike fear in the hearts of his philosophical adversaries. All bogus cults and sects were doomed in his presence.” – A Ray of Vishnu.
