He has written 21 granthas. He has written commentary on majority of Sarvamoola Granthaas.

  1. Tathvaprakashika – brahmasootra bhashya Teeka Before Srimadacharya, there were 21 Kubhaashyaas on Brahmasutra.  As such, Vedavyasaru insisted Srimadacharyaru to write Bhashya for Brahmasootra which is in line with Vedavyasaru.  So Acharyaru wrote Brahmasutra Bhashya wherein he has said there are 564 sootraas, which contained 4 adhyaayaas, 16 paadaas, and 223 adhikaranaas.

Tattva Prakashika contains : –

Prathama adhyaaya (samanyadhyaaya) – Sri Maha Vishnu is the only Parabrahma.  He is anantha Kalyana GuNa paripoorna and has atha kartrutva shakthi viz.,  a) Srusti, b) sthithi, c) laya,  d) jnaana, e) ajnaana, f) niyamana,   g) bandha, h) moksha.   Srihari is sarva shabda vandya as said in anantha vedaas.

Dviteeya adhyaaya (avirOdhaadhyaaya) –  It is said that Srihari is Sarva doosha doora.  It gives evidence to prove that Saankya, vaishEshika, bouddha, jaina, shakthi, chaarvaka and Paashupata matha are apraamaana and are not reliable.   It says Jeeva – Parabrahma relation (sambhandha) is that of servant and King relation.

Triteeya adhyaaya (saadhanaadhyaaya) says – Those adhikaaree jeevaas must have Virakthi, bhakthi, jnaana and do upaasaana in order to get Moksha.

Fourth Adhyaaya (Phaalaadhyaaya) – Here it is mentioned about karma kshaya, utkraanthi, route and phala.  “Brahma” shabdha means mukyataha “Vishnu” only.  He is ananta kalyaana guna paripoorna, sarvadosha varjita, svagatabedha rahita, jagajjanmaadi kartaa, he is bhinna from nityamukta jeeva, he is karmaphala dhaatru, sarvachestaprada, muktagamya.  This has so many Teekaas and TippaNees – viz., Sri Vyaasarajaru’s Tatparya Chandrika, Sri Raghunatha Tirtha’s Shesha Tatparya Chandrike, Rayara Bhaavadeepa, Kundalagiri Acharya’s Rasakoolankasha, Pandurangi Keshavaachaarya’s gururaajeeya, Vyaasa Tatvajna Tirtha’s Tippani, Raghottama Tirthara Bhaavabhoda, Tippani by Ratna garbha Odeyar, Vaadiraja’s Gurvartha Deepika, Vishnu Tirtha’s Rasaranjini, Bidarahalli Srinivasa Tirtha’s vyaakyaana, Vijayeendraru, Sumateendraru, Chalari Sankarshanacharyaru, Srimushnam Ananthabhattaru, etc

2. Srimannyaaya sudha – (Anuvyaakhyaana Teeka – Sudha – Vishamapada vaakyaartha vivrutti )
सुधा वा पठनीय वसुधाव पालनीय –  Sudhaa vaa paThanIyaa vasudhaava paalanIya

– This is the honourable word given to this great grantha.    In this grantha Teekarayaru has analysed and condemned many kubhaashyaas,   Some of the granthaas analysed and condemned by Teekarayaru are “Padmapaada”, “Prakaashaatman”, “saanKyatattva kaumudee”, “Chitsukhee”, “Nyaayaleelaavathi”, “Nyaaya Kandali”, “Nyaayavaarthika taatparya “

This has Omkaara artha vichaara, jeeva kartrutva vichaara, “ithi” shabdaartha, “iva” shabdaartha, karma kartrutva vichaara, pada shakthi vichaara, laya vichaara, bedha vichaara, saakshi vichaara, srushTi Vichaara, jnaana taaratamya vichaara, avayava vichaara, asiddhi vichaara, apraamaaNya paratatva vichaara, veda pramaana vichaara, etc.

This has reference for many nyaayaas viz., “AjaakRupaaNi nyaaya, kaakShinyaaya, kaphONiguDhanyaaya, kUrmarOma nyaaya, gObalIvardaanyaaya, parisaMkyaanyaaya, pUtikuShmaaNDa nyaaya,  bhikShupaada prasaraNa nyaaya, mahaa mallEsha bhaNganyaaya, vIchI taranganyaaya, suptaprabuddhan nyaaya, etc.

There are many Tippanees – viz., Vyasatattvajnaru, Kundalagiri Acharyaru, Vidyaadeesharu, PandurangI Keshavacharyaru, Kashi TimmaaNNaachaaryaru, Yadupatyaachaaryaru, Ratnagarbha Odeyaru, Rayaru (Parimala), vaadiraajaru, KambaalUru Raamachandra Tirtharu, Tamraparni Anandatirthacharyaru, Madanooru Vishnu Tirtharu, Bidarahalli Srinivasa Tirtharu, Ayi Satyanaathachaaryaru, Satyanatharu, Satyaprajnaru, Satyavrataru, etc.

3.  Nyaaya vivarana Teeka – This is an uncompleted Teeka.  Here Jayateertharu has done Teeka for the first Adhyaya and first two paadaas of second adhyaaya, and for the rest Sri Raghottama Tirtharu has done the Teeka.

4.  Prameya Deepika – Geetabhashya Teeka – Without this grantha, it is very difficult for us to understand the Geetha Bhashya of Srimadacharya.   Here while writing Teeka on Srimadacharya’s vaakya, Teekarayaru has narrated the meanings given by Shankaracharya and Bhaskara and condemned them.   Here he has given the reference of Narahari Tirtha’s Vyaakyaana.  In some of the cases wherein some Advaitees have tried to find fault with the Grammer of Srimadacharya, Teekarayaru has established that the Grammer used by Acharya is accurate and appropriate.

Here he says  : ನನು ವೇದಾಂತೈ: ಈಶ್ವರನಿತ್ಯತ್ವಂ ಜಾನಂತ: ತತ್ರೈವೋಕ್ತಂ ಜೀವನಿತ್ಯತ್ವಂ ಕಥಂ ನ ಜಾನಾತಿ |
ननु वेदांतै: ईश्वरनित्यत्वं जानंत: तत्रैवोक्तं जीवनित्यत्वं कथं न जानाति ।
nanu vEdaaMtai: IshvaranityatvaM jaanaMta: tatraivOktaM jIvanityatvaM kathaM na jaanaati |
न च अभाव: तारतम्यवान्  | ನ ಚ ಅಭಾವ: ತಾರತಮ್ಯವಾನ್ | na cha abhaava: taaratamyavaan |

–    There can’t be gradation in the case of non existing objects.

Persons who know Vedanta, when they understand Nityatva of Eshwara from Vedas, they will also understand that Jeevaas are also Nitya.  He says that Jeeva is Nitya and Eshwara is parama nithya.

5.  Nyaya Deepika – Geetha Tatparya Teeka This is the Vyaakyaana for Srimadacharya’s Geetha Tatparya NirNaya. This has Tippani in the name of  “Kiranaavali”.  Whatever was not clear in Geetaa Bhashya was clear in Geetaa Tatparya. There are many pramEyaas which are untold in Geeta Tatparya.

Bhagavad Geetha can be summarized as : Jeeva Isha Aikya, Jaganmityaatva, all are apraamanika.  Vishnu is Sarvottama, there is pancha beda, taaratamya, jagat satyatva,  etc.  Paramathma is Anantha Kalyana Guna in all his roopaas, avataaraas, he is sarva dosha vivarjita, sarvottama, he is bhinna from all, all are under him only.  He is swatantra.  All Shastraas tell him only.

Jeeva is nitya.  Jeeva is bhinna from Eshwara.  Bhinna individually, there is taaratamya.  Jeeva is alpa shakta, paratantra, apoorna.  Jeevaas are of three types – Uttama, Madhyama and adhama.  Uttama is mukti yogya, madhyama is samsaarayogya, and adhama is tamoyogya.   Vishnu Bhakthi is the superior sadhaane.  Vishnu Sarvottamatva Jnaana is the best jnaana.   There is no one which is superior to Moksha.  Mukthaas will not have prakruta deha.  Even mukthaas do not have JeevEsha Aikya.

This has following Teekaa and tippanees –  Rayara Bhaavadeepa, Tamraparni Srinivaasaachaarya’s Kiranaavali, satyaprajna Tirtha’s bhaavaprakaasha, and Satyanaatha Tirtha’s Tippani.

6.  Ishavaasya upanishadbhashya Teeka – This is the Teeka for Srimadacharya’s IshavasyOpanishad, (Ishavasa Upanishad has twenty shlokaas).   Swaayambu Manu prayed Yajna naamaka Vishnu through Ishavaasya Mantra as per Brahmaanda Puraana.    This Grantha quotes Jagat swaroopa, Isha swaroopa, Phala for Brahma Jnaani, Phala for AnyatOpaasaka,  Here Sri Jayateertharu has condemned the bhashya of Advaita and Vishistadvaita from the first shloka itself and done the pratipadane of Bhagavantha’s sarva vyaptatva & on all.

7.  Shat Prashnopanishad Bhashya Teeka – This is the Teeka for Acharya Madhwas’s “Shat Prashnopanishad Bhashya”.  Here six sages (Rushees) will ask questions.  The six sages are Kabandee kaatyaayana, VaidarbhI bhargava, Kausalya Ashwalaayana, SouryOmaNi gaargya, Shaibyascha Satyakaama and SukEshacha Bhaaradhwaaja.  For these six Rushee’s questions answers were given by another sage Pippalaada. This has Tippanees of Vadiraajaru, Chalari Narasimhacharyaru, Chalaari ShEshaachaaryaru, LingEri Vyaasacharyaru, Taamraparni Srinivaasachaaryaru and Rayaru.

8.  Tathvasankhyaana Teeka This is the Vyaakyaana for Tattva sankyaana of Srimadacharya.   This has Madhwa matha prameyaas.  This grantha tells – Tattva Swaroopa, anaarOpitattvam, tattva saamaanya lakshaNam, vEdapraamaaNya.  This explains parabrahma tattva, lakshmi tattva, jeeva swaroopa, and proves that Sri Vishnu is only swatantra and all others are under him only.

Acharya Madhwa says in the beginning itself – svataMtraM asvataMtraM cha dvividhaM tattvamiShyatE| ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರಂ ಅಸ್ವತಂತ್ರಂ ಚ ದ್ವಿವಿಧಂ ತತ್ತ್ವಮಿಷ್ಯತೇ| | स्वतंत्रं अस्वतंत्रं च द्विविधं तत्त्वमिष्यते।. For this there is a comment that Acharya Madhwa has not done the Mangalacharana itself while starting the grantha.  For this Sri Jayatirtha has replied that Acharya Madhwa must done the Mangalacharana in mind itself.  Acharya Madhwa being the greatest “aastika”, this can be inferred easily.  There need not be a suspicion about this.   Jayatirtha further states that the word “svatantra” itself is Mangalacharana.  The best way of calling Vishnu is “svatantra”  स्वतंत्रं – i.e., independent.  This quality rests only in Maha Vishnu and not in anyone else.  All are dependent on HIM.   As such, “svatantra” itself is Mangalacharana for this grantha.

There are many Tippanees viz., Srimushnam anantabhattaru, Pandurangi Keshavacharyaru, Kaashi Timmannaacharyaru, AyI narasimhaacharyaru, VaNIvaalI Narasimhaacharyaru, Chalaari Narasimhacharyaru, Nrusimha Bhikshu, Bhagavanta raayaru, Yaadavaachaaryaru, Raayaru, Varada Tirtharu, Kumbhaari Vaasudevaacharyaru, Vijayeendraru, Tamraparni Ananda Tirthacharyaru, Vittalacharyaru, Lingeri Vyaasaacharyaru, Chalari SheShaachaaryaru, Bidarahalli Srinivasa Tirtharu, Lingeri Srinivasacharyaru, Tamraparni Srinivasacharyaru,  Satyadharmaru, Satyaprajnaru

10. Maayaavada Khandana Teeka – This is a small grantha.  This is a Teeka for Srimadacharya’s Mayavaada Khandana Grantha.   Maayaavada Matha says –  Jeeva himself is Brahma,  Brahma – आत्म ऐक्य  (ब्रह्म – आत्म ऐक्य) is the Main Meaning  for Veda.   Srimadacharya has condemned these in his Mayavada Khandana Grantha and proved that Srihari is Sarvottama,  sakala Guna paripoorna.    This has Teeka from Vyasarajaru (Mandaara Manjari), Satyanatharu (Parashu), Rayaru, Keshavacharya Pandurangi, Vadirajaru, and Anantha Bhattaru.

His ankita – “raama vittala”. It was for the first time that “vittala” ankita was introduced in Haridasasahitya, that too by Sri Jayatirtharu.  This means that Sri Jayatirtharu is the next to Sri Narahari Tirtharu for contribution to Kannada Haridasa sahitya.

Jayatirtharu and Haridasa Sahitya –

Apart from so many Sanskrit Granthaas, he has written some devaranamagalu in Kannada.  One of them : –

2 comments on “Grantha darshana

  • In the very beginning of mayavada khandana,…..
    Madhvacharya say that brahman and brahma jgnana are different.He says,as brahma jgnana is different from brahma,It is false,as everything else other than brahma is false in advaitha.So,the advaitha thattva is false he says.
    So, he says it is waste to learn advaitha.

    For this advaithi’s answer,
    Pragnanam brahma (Brahman is knowledge) a mahavakhya says,Brahma and brahman jgnana are not different ,but brahma jgnana is very swarupa of brahman.
    So,one cannot differentiate between brahman and brahma jgnana.Brahma and brahma jgnana are one and same.

    So,there is no question of saying brahma is true,and brahma jgnana (advaitha tattva) is false.

    So, the vary beginning of mayavada khandana is wrong…….

    what you say for this?

  • Narahari avare…
    Nimage pranamagalu..
    Kindly provide suitable justification with simple examples for the below questions from Mr. Srivatsa.

    Its for our clear understanding….

    1.Srivathsa rao i said…
    Sir,
    In dvaita’s trividha jeevas…like rajasa,tamasa,and sathvika jeevas are like tv serials….where there will be a good person…who will always think good and do good ,
    there will be a bad person…who always think evil and do evil….this is just the ladys watching tv serial story….hence not practical…..
    2)In reality there is atleast a good guna in a bad person and a bad guna in a very good person….a evil person can become good one day and good person can become bad one day…..So, we cannot say evil nature or good nature are nature of his own soul…..So,there cannot be rajasa,sathvika ,tamasa jeevas…..

    2.Srivathsa rao i said…
    I have a question about madwa philosophy
    1) for madwas there are 5 bedas
    *)jada-jada
    *)jiva -jiva
    *)jiva-iswara
    *)jiswara-jada and jiva-jada
    —————————————…
    BUT TODAYS SCIENCE HAVE PROVED THAT THERE IS NO JADA-JADA BEDA…..i:e according to madhvaacharya ,gold can never become silver….but todays science have proved that by changing electronics configuration we can change gold to silver….WHICH ACCORDING TO MADHVAACHARYA IMPOSSIBLE !!!!!!!…because nothing,or jada loose their prakruthika guna according to madhvacharya,….
    2)jiva-jiva beda:
    accoring to dvaita each jiva is suguna and his prakrutika gunas are his own gunas.
    BUT ACCORDING TO ME PRAKRUTHIKA GUNAS ARE NOT OF ATHMAS AND IS SUPER IMPOSED ON ATHMA,BY READING MY FOLLOWING COMMENTS U PEOPLE COME TO KNOW……..
    1)me myself, i am human i see another human in kama,but if i become dog in next janma,i see dog with kama…..so prakruthika guna kama is not atmans guna
    2) bhudhi:
    now when we are human we have high level of bhudhi,but if i become dog in next janma we have bhudhi of the level of dog,so budhi is not atmas guna
    if u go on thinking like that u will come to know that ,these gunas atman got from MAYA of jagath..and is not atmans guna ….so atman is nirgua and jagath is maya…………so madwaacharya’s jath is truth and 5 bedas are false…….
    CAN YOU PEOPLE PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION?

    3.ultimate knowledge is sacchidaanada. sacchidaananda is the personality(swarupa) of brahman….which means …..
    sat(always present)….chit(consiousness)……anadnda(bliss) …..when you experience…..this ananda(bliss)…….that means your personality have become equal to sacchidaanada….in that state you have become sacchidaanada swarupi…..or in other words…..you have become sacchidaanada rupi brahman …..which is the ultimate knowledge….as vedas says…..
    so….you yourself…..have become sacchidaanada….or YOU HAVE BECOME BRAHMAN ,which is ultimate knowledge….thats why vedas say…..prajgnam brahm….or brahman is knowledge…..and you are brahman…….(aham brahmamaasmi)……this is in breaf……the essence of jgnana yoga….
    WHAT YOU SAY FOR THIS?.

    4.1)ok….forget science….let me give local example
    Milk….it is one jada,curd is another jada,,,,they have different prakruthika guna…..if milk and curd are different by absolute as said by madhvacharya….milk should never become curd…..
    but milk…become curd,ghee,butter milk…etc…here the prakruthika gunas of milk (jada)changes to the prakruthika gunas of ghee,curd etc….hence…there cannot be jada-jada beda by absolute as said by madhvacharya…
    2)dress…perishes by time(kumbaagutthade)….here dress looses its prakruthika guna bala (strength)…by time…so strength is not guna of jada…if you go on thinking like that…then there is no jada-jada beda…..
    so what is the guna of jada…which makes it different from other jada,,,by absolute?
    3)one person having a thum print in one janma,will have another thum print in another janma…so there are not athman’s attribute…. one leave of the same tree…will not be like that…after a day…it will be grown old like big in size,change colour to yellow…etc….so there are not the gunas of jaga…if you go in thinking like that…a jada will be different from it ..self after a period of time….so quality changes with time…
    4) similary kama,physical appearance,thinking changes from janma to janma ..so there are not athman’s guna…so athman is nirguna…so prakruthika gunas like rajasa,tamasa,sathvika are not athman’s guna…so athman is nirguna…..
    what you say for this sir?

    5.Srivathsa rao i said…
    First of all ,In advaita we say shivoham,not as “Parvathi pathi”….we say shiva shivoham here shiva means supreme knowledge or supreme consciousnesses….that is it……..that means we are supreme consioussness…not parvathi’s husband
    In dvaita hari means “lakshmi ‘s husband,shiva means “parvathi’s husband”…..this is childish…..and bakwas
    If you ask a donkey…how is god…it says god is beautiful donkey …similarly madhvacharya says hari as a beautiful sarvothama lakshmi ‘s husband hari……

    Dvaita is full of childish , bakwas stories

    Please answer for this…..
