Among the doctrines of Vedanta, I know that Guru Parampara of Advaita (non-dualism) and Vishishtadvaita (qualified non-dualism) as follows:

नारायणं पद्मभुवं वशिष्ठं शक्तिं च तत्पुत्रं पराशरं च व्यासं शुकं गौडपादं महान्तं गोविन्दयोगीन्द्रं अथास्य शिष्यम्।
श्री शंकराचार्यं अथास्य पद्मपादं च हस्तामलकं च शिष्यम् तं तोटकं वार्त्तिककारमन्यान् अस्मद् गुरून् सन्ततमानतोऽस्मि॥

सदाशिव समारम्भां शङ्कराचार्य ​मध्यमाम्।
अस्मदाचार्य प्रर्यन्तां वन्दे गुरु परम्पराम् ॥

Advaita Guru Parampara:
SadaSiva/Narayana > Padmabhu (BrahmA) > Vashishtha > Shakti > Parashar > VedVyasa > Shukadeva > Gaudapada > Govinda Bhagvatpada > Adi Shankaracharya.

Vishishtadvaita Guru Parampara:
Vishnu > Laxmi > Vishvaksena > Nammalwar > NathaMuni > Pundarikaksha > Rama Mishra > Yamunacharya > Peria Nambi > Ramanujacjarya

I want to know the Guru Parampara of Suddhadvaita (pure non-dualism), also known as Pushti Marga Vaishnava Sampradaya. I only know that the chief expounder is Vallabhacharya and belongs to Rudra Sampradaya.

    That is not Vishishtadvaita guruparampara, it is Sri Vaishnava guruparampara. Former is a philosophy and latter is faith. Mentioned in Sri Vaishnava guru parampara. – Sarvabhouma May 9 '18 at 8:48

    I will still say the same after the link addition also. It is Sri Vaishnava guru parampara. Author of the article says "Vishishtadvaita Sri Vaishnava" in the linked article. That too it is a personal article. – Sarvabhouma May 9 '18 at 9:04
  • @Sarvabhouma ohk. Btw, is it possible for one to follow Vishishtadvaita without becoming Sri Vaishnava or vice-versa? – Paṇḍyā Oct 22 '18 at 1:19
  • Faith and philosophy are different. One can become Vishishtadviatan without being a Sri Vaishnava but it doesn't work the other way. – Sarvabhouma Oct 22 '18 at 3:54
  • @PrasannaR Observe last two lines of Avdaita Guruparampara; just added in the question body. – Paṇḍyā May 20 at 8:12

Suddhadvaita is based on Vallabhacharya's preaching known as Pushtimarga.He has written commentary on BrahmaSutra called "Anu Bhashya" and expounded the Shuddadvaita Vedanta. This sect is subscribed to Rudra Sampradaya of Vaishnavism which is believed to be started from Shiva himself. According to scholars Vishnuswami was the first who founded the doctrine of Shuddhadvaita by writing commentary on Brahma Sutra called Sarvajñabhāṣya as discussed in this post.

Following is the Guruparampara of Vishnuswami Sampradaya I found from Bhaktamal, a poem written in 16th century giving short biography of more than 200 bhaktas. You can read original treatise at here.

Quoting the Guruparampara of Vishnuswami which is traced back to Shiva from story of Vishnuswami and tradition after Vishnuswami from story of Vallabhacharya from Bhaktamal Hindi translation published by Naval Kishor Press in 1884: ((Emphasized Vishnuswami and Vallabhacharya in the list))
