When traveling with his Preceptor, Venkatanatha was forced to take up the challenge of a Tamil Grammarian in the literary contest at Madurai. In the argument that followed, he defeated the arrogantTamil Pandit. Elated pandits, along with his revered guru Sri Sudheendra yati, conferred on him the Mahabhashyacharya  a much coveted title. A colourful feather to his cap! Then they went to Tanjore ruled by Raghunatha Raya, a connoisseur of music and literature, and stayed at his court for some time at his request.

Here again an opportunity sought him to display his superior mental calibre and panditya prakarsha. In the contest entered into with Yagna Narayana Dikshit, he defeated him after a protracted battle that lasted for 18 days. Can there be any defeat for heavenly power? He was awarded the honourable title Bhattacharya, and he was called 'Venkata Bhatta' thence onwards. A great honour! And yet another miracle! And he was appointed as "asthana pandit" by the great king. Venkata Bhatta returned to Bhuvanagiri - his home town after conquest after conquest and lived a happy life with his adorable wife Saraswati, and soon was blessed with a son, whom they christened Lakshminarayana.
