Bhāskararāya (भास्करराय) (C. 1685-1775 C.E.) alias Bhāsurānandanātha alias Bhāskararāya Makhin was a polymath of 18th Century. He is the son of Gambhīrarāya Bhāratī and Konamāmbā of Viśvāmitragotra and younger brother of Sakhārāma. He was born in a town called Bhāgā. Bhāskararāya’s thread ceremony (upanayana) was performed at Benares by his father and he was placed under the tuition of Narasiṃhādhvarin, who taught him eight vidyās. He studied Gauḍatarka under Gaṅgādhara Vājapeyin. He received dīkṣā of Pūrṇābhiṣeka under Śivadatta Śukla. He is also the preceptor of Umānandanātha, Candrasena.

Bhāskararāya married to Ānandī, who afterward became famous in the name of Padmāvatyambikā and by their union a boy namely Pāṇḍuraṅga took birth. He also married another lady namely Pārvatī during his tour to Gujarat. He migrated to the banks of Krishna river from Benares. Towards the end of his life, he resided at Bhāskararājapuram (on the banks of river Kāverī), gifted to him by the Maratha ruler of Thanjavur.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
