The 'Advaita Vedanta Literature Bibliographical Survey' by Thangaswamy
places Sridhara Swamin to be the disciple of 'Paramananda Tirtha', from the
dedication verse. Period 1400-1500 CE.

I have not seen the paper of BNK, though, but came to know about this
finding through another scholar in BVP. I asked for the exact references in
Abhinava Gupta's commentary where the citation is found but got no reply.
