He was the third descendant from Shripad Rajendra Tirtha in the line senior of disciples coming from Shripad Vidyadhiraja Tirtha. Very little on his life is known. It is said that it was due to the blessings of Brahmanya Tirtha that the parents of Vyasa Tirtha, (Brahmanya Tirtha's disciples), owed the birth of their children notably Shripad Vyasa Tirtha (B.N.K. Sharma. 1961. History of the Dvaita School of Vedanta. page 460.).
As his permanent residence, Brahmanya Tirtha lived mostly at Channapatna or Abbur in Karnataka State (B. Venkobarao. Vy-charita, Page 26.) There he had a Mutt of his own which later he was to entrust to his disciple Shridhar Tirtha. This Mutt which still survives today is called the Kundapur Mutt. His other disciple was the famous Shripad Vyasa Tirtha.
The Mutt lists give his demise as 1467 AD
Shri Brahmanya Tirtha's Samadhi is in Shri Vrindavna Dhama.
