Shri Shri 1008 Shri Satyapramoda Teertha Swamiji, the then Peethadhipati of Shri Uttaradi Matha, discovered the latent attributes of a great genius, a dynamic leader, a compassionate benefactor of humanity and a devotee of a high order in him. In short , all the great qualities one must possess in order to become a Peethadhipati. He therefore, decided to induct him to sanyasashrama in the name of Satyatma Teertha and thus made him the heir to the Uttaradi Matha.

Shri Shri 1008 Satyatma Teertha, the present pontiff of the Uttaradi Matha took over “Vedic samrajya” from 3-11-1997 after Shri Shri 1008 Satyapramoda Teertharu attained “Haripada Sannidi” on 3-11-1997. Shri Shri 1008 Satyatma Teertharu was ordained to sanyasa ashrama on 24-4-1996 at Tirukoilur by Shri Shri 1008 Satyapramoda Teertharu. He is the 42nd pontiff of the Matha since Sri Madhwacharya. Known by the name Sarvagnyacharya in his poorvashrama, he is the son of the the great scholar “Sudha Visharada” Pandit Rangacharya Guttal, purvashrama son of the late Shri Shri 1008 Satyapramoda Teertharu and the present kulapati of Shri Jayateertha Vidyapeetha, Bangalore. His mother’s name is Smt. K.S. Rukmabai, daughter of Pt. Mahuli Gopalachar.

After inducting him to Sansyasashrama, Shri Satyapramodaru passed on to him the heavenly knowledge, the secrets of the Vedanta philosophy, the nectar that continuosly flowed in this great parampara from ages and also the necessary strength to lead a Math of this stature. He transformed him into a great saint, capable of protecting the Hindu dharma and leading the future generations in the light of the Philosophy of Madhvacharya.

Some of his concepts and ideas to involve the wider spectrum of our community, like imparting religious knowledge to the non resident shishyas residing abroad need special mention. He has so far successfully trained several scholars in the renowned Shri Jayteertha Vidyapeetha, founded by his Guru in 1989, in a true gurukula style. Students personally trained by him are doing great service to the society by organizing several programmes like Dharma Jnana Vahini, Youth workshops, conducting regular shastra classes and creating dharma jagruti in one and all. His fortitude and foresight, helped him found Vishwa Madhwa Maha Parishad (VMMP), an organisation for instilling dharma jagriti at the grass root level.

Through Shri Uttaradi Math, of which he is the present Head, through Jayateertha Vidyapeetha of which he is the cheif patron, through Vishwa Madhwa Maha Parishad, which is his brain child, and through Jaya Satyapramoda Nidhi a registered charitable body, founded by his predecessor Sri Satyapramoda Tirtha Swamiji, of which he is now the Chief Trustee, he has carved a niche in the field of service to humanity.
