In an Anugraha Bhashan given a few years back, His Holiness Pujyasri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji explained to the devotees that the 65th Acharya attained samadhi at Ilayathangudi, also known as Vishrampura - where you get free from all bondage from samsara and get real rest. The Acharya had a radiant presence. He was known for HIS generosity in helping needy and HIS support for arts. He was an especially accomplished Upasaka of Srividya.
