Description:
Gokarna Math (institution) is one of the 24 Maths (or Hindu monasteries) of the Dwaita order, a system established by Shri Madhvacharya in the 13th century.

This Math is also called as Partagli Jeevothama Mutt and is headquartered in Partagli, a small town in South Goa, on the banks of the river Kushaavati. There is still ongoing research to establish who exactly founded the math and when exactly it was founded. As per historic lore it is said that it was initiated by Shri Raghothama Theertharu (Bhavabodharu) of Shri Uttaradi Math, also it is said that this Math was formed after it split away from the Shri Palimaru Math at Udupi initiated by Shimad Ananda Theertharu (Madhwacharya).

The first pontiff of the Math was Shri 1008 Shri Narayana Theertha. The deity worshiped by the institution is Shri Ramdev Veervitthal. The math became well known as Jeevottama Math after the 3rd pontiff Shri Jeevottama Theertharu.

This math was also a victim of the mindless and fanatic Portuguese Christian missionaries which drove the original establishment from Madgao to Bhatkal in Karwar District in Karnataka. Shri Narayana Theertharu was a great scholar of the Dvaita order and earned the name "Shri Paada Wodayaru", for which he is still known today.During the late 1950s, Shri Dwarakanatha Theertharu established several educational institutions and republished several seminal works.
