Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya was the teacher of the King of Kasaragod called Jayasimha. Once when Sri Madhvacharya visited Kasaragod, he challenged Sri Madhva to a debate, as he believed in the Advaita tradition. The debate lasted for 7-8 days and in the end, he accepted Sri Madhva's philosophy and became his disciple. He also composed a book called Tatva pradeepika, which is a commentary of Sri Madhvacharya's Brahma Sutra Bhashya.
Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya's biographical account is also given with considerable detail by his son Sri Narayana Panditacharya in sumadhvavijaya. Sri Trvivikrama Panditacharya's father was Sri Subramanya Panditacharya. Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya was a scholar even in his young days and even before he was converted as a Madhwa he had written a Sanskrit mahakavya called "Ushaharana" mahakavya.
