Sri Jayateertharu is the sixth Pontiff of our Sri Madhwacharya Peetha and is
popularly known by Teekarayaru, Teekacharyaru and Teekakrutpadaru,
etc.

Teekacharya - In Dwaitha Vedanta the name of Sri Jayatirtharu is always to be


remembered for his contributions. No one is comparable to his style of writing
Teeka and upholding the Madhwa Philosophy. Almost all the Granthaas, teekaas,
vyakyaas that have come after Jayatirtha are based on his Teekaas only. That is
why he is called as Teekacharya.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Yeragola Cave - This is the place where Sri Jayatirtharu wrote Srimannyaayasudhaadi
granthaas. This is situated in just one kilometre from Chittapura in Yadgir District. Once upon
a time, this Cave was the tapobhoomi of Shanka named muni.

Jayateertharu used to sit there in the lonely place for writing commentaries with great patience,
knowledge and intense Aparoksha Gnyaana. It is here on this holy land that majority of his
Teekas took birth. Sri Ramachandra Tirthas and Sri Vidyanidhi Tirthas Vrundavana also
there near Yeragola.

1. Yeragola Cave entrance, Yadgir District, Gulbarga District


2. Sri Jayathirtharu in the form of a snake in Yeragola Cave where he used to write all his granthas.

His earlier avataraas -


He is the amsha of Sri Indra Devaru
He was born as Waali, the brother of Sugriva and was killed by Sri Ramachandra in
Tretayuga.
He was born as Arjuna and had Geetopadesha by Sri Krishna Paramathma in Dwapara
yuga.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

He was born as Bullock, during Srimadacharyarus period and he carried Sarvamoola


Grantha for nearly 18years from place to place. When Srimadacharya used to do paata
for his Shishyaas, he used to sit next to Acharya Shishyaas and hear all the shastraas.

Why was he born as a bullock? - The Pandavaas after being victorious in Kurukshetra,
were remembering and discussing the past incidents of Mahabharata Maha Yuddha. At that
time Arjuna forgot Sri Krishna and boasted before Bheema that he is responsible for the entire
victory. Immediately Bheema told You are boasting like an animal, you forgot Sri Krishnas
anugraha. Immediately Arjuna realized his ajnaana (ahambhaava - Indra is not free from Kali
Avesha) and repented. As the wordings of great personalities will never be false, they will
become true. And that he will definitely take the birth of a beast. Arjuna forgot Sri Krishna
Paramathma for a while and got the life of a bullock. The same bullock became Sri
Jayateertharu.

Acharyaru showing the bullock (Teekakaryaru) will write Teeka "urZrxrirw aUO"
for his granthas :-
One day when Srimadacharyaru was teaching his disciples, one of his shishyaas raised the topic
that who will write - Compose the Commentaries to His Works. All the Pandits were seeing
their faces each other with a smile that Srimadacharyaru will suggest their names. On the
contrary Srimadacharya said "urZrxrirw aUO" that the bullock which was sitting in front
will write the commentaries to His Works. The Pandits became angry and cursed the bullock to
die with the Serpent bite. Within a few days the bullock, due to the Serpent bite was suffering
a lot and died. It was the same bullock that provided as the entire Teeka of Acharya Madhwa.
He had heard the entire Sarvamoola directly from Srimadacharyaru.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Drawing : Curtesy Sri Vaidya Srinivasachar, Hyderabad

'Kim Pashuhu Poorvadehe "M mz: muk:" - Sri Akshobhya Thirtharu was searching for a
shishya for his Sarvagna Peeta. One day, he was sitting on the bank of the River
Bheemarathi. There a young handsome boy, named Dondu pantha or Donduraya, riding a
horse, being thirsty, came and went into the river, sitting on the Horse itself and drunk the
water without using his hands. Shree Akshobhya Thirtharu saw this scene and uttered in
Sanskrit with Loud Kim Pashu Poorvadehe "M mz: muk:" In the previous Janma Had you
been a Beast? (Pashu).

Hearing this Dhondooraya stunned and remembered his previous Janmas Arjuna, His Bullock
Janma in the period of Srimadacharyaru, Vrashabharoopa and all. Immediately Bowed to Sri
Akshobhya Teertharu and requested for Yati Ashrama. Akshobhya Teertharus Joy knew no
bonds, Actually Dondu Raya is the Akshobhya Thirthara poorvashrama brothers son. Sri
Akshobhya Teertharu asked Dhonduraya to get the permision of the Elders. Dhonduraya did
not listen and insisted him to give Ashrama immediately. Raghunath Deshpande, on hearing
this, rushed with anger near Akshobhya Tirtharu. He simply cried loudly. Dhondoraya told that
Akshobhya Tirtharu has not forcibly given the Ashrama, at his own will and wish became Yati.

But his father forceably took him home and arranged for the First night for Dondurayaru with
his wife Bhamamani. But for the girl, Dhonduraaya looked like a serpant. She tried to came
near him, but the snake was not allowing her to come near him. After all his efforts are
failed, his father realized that he was wrong in bringing Donduraya, the Jayathirtharu to his
home for first night and took him back to Akshobhya Thirtharu and asked his excuse for his
acts.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Studied under Sri Akshobhya Tirtharu - Even though he had knowledge from what
he had learnt from Acharya Madhwa when he was an ox, he further studied under Akshobhya
Tirtharu, who taught him like shukavaani. He himself has quoted in his granthas that

In most of his granthas, he has praised his guru Akshobhya Tirtharu.

Penance at Durga betta - After the vrundavana pravesha of his Gurugalu Jayatirtharu
decided to start grantha rachane. Before starting the grantha rachana work he went to Durga
Betta for tapassu. He did the tapassu like Druvarayaru by eating green leaves, dry gross,
panchagavya prashana, etc. He got the anugraha of Saraswathi and Bharatee Deviyaru.
Sheshadevaru also came and did the anugraha on his tongue. So, there was the avesha of
Sheshadevaru also in him.

Jayatirtharu on Acharya Madhwa - For doing the vyakyaana on Acharya Madhwa


Grantha only gods are capable. Even the effort of doing the vyakyaana itself looks like a
comedy, but I have done the vyakyaana with the utmost devotion to Acharya Madhwa
this is also a vibhushana for his grantha.

Svaahankara khandana by Jayatirtharu - He says that he is not an expert in Vyakarana


Shastra. Not an expert in Vedavaakya or Nyaya shastra. Not learnt all. Whatever I have
done is only with the anugraha of Sarvajnaacharya

Anugraha by Jayatirtharu -
There is a canal nearby wherein Sri Jayatirtharu just stopped water by giving his handful of
mud to the Gouda of that village. Once it so happened that the main Gowda of that village
thought of constructing a canal for the village people. He constructed the canal and the same
was filled with water but in a very short period it was dried and the gowda was forced to wait
for another rainy season. Then again rain came and canal was filled but was dried again. One
night he got a dream wherein he was told to meet a sage nearby who is doing the penance, and
he will help you. The gowda immediately met the sage nearby, who was none other than Sri
Jayatirtharu, who in turn gave him a handful of mud after doing some abhimantrana to the
gowda and asked him to put in the pond. The gowda did as instructed by the sage and the canal
was saved and even today so many villagers are being benefited by the canal which was the
anugraha of Jayatirtharu.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Koneri Pranesha - Once after the completion of the pooja, a monkey came near him and
wrote geetha "ai" on a rock nearby. Sri Jayatirtharu realized that it was the order of
Mukyapranadevaru to write Geetha Bhashya Teeka, and he wrote the monkeys figure on the
same rock. He also did the prana pratiste of the monkey. Subsequently Koneri family people
built one mantapa for Mukyaprana.

Anugraha to Muslim King Firozeshah - Once Muslim King Firozeshah sent one of his
servants to invite Jayatirtharu to his palace. Jayatirtharu came but stayed in a temple in
Kurukshetra. At the same time many Hindus were doing upavaasa in front of the palace as the
King was taxing exhorbitantly on Brahmins and was forcing the Hindus to be converted to
Muslim Community. As the branhims were fasting, Jayatirtharu refused to enter the city. Then
the King came personally and asked him to come to his palace.

He told Jayatirtharu that his son was suffering from severe decease which has not been cured
by any doctors and asked for anugraha to his son. Jayatirtharu insisted a condition that king
must free the Brahmin community from exhorbitant taxes and avoid conversion. The King
agreed. Jayatirtharu did the pooja and after naivedya and his tirtha prasada, he gave some
prasaada to the Muslim King, which prasada cured the prince from his severe decease. The
King was delighted and decided to invite Jayatirtharu to Delhi and give all the honours of the
Kings. But the sage refused and told him that the entire thing happened with the blessings of
Sri Ramachandra only and it was because of Srimadwacharyas anugraha that the kings sons
health was improved and the entire honour must go to them only.

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Then the king did the honour to Sarvamoola grantha and Sri Moola Ramachandra Vigraha
with ambari elephant throughout the Delhi city.

Vrundavana Pravesha of Akshobhya Tirtharu - Sri Akshobhya Tirtharu told


Jayatirtharu to write Teeka Granthaas for Srimadacharyas sarvamoola. He told Acharyas
work are not easily reachable for the common man and told that the bhashyaas to be done by
Jayatirtharu will help everyone to understand Acharya Madhwa Tatwa. Akshobhya Tirtharu
gave ashrama to Sri Trailokyabhooshana Tirtharu, who became the head of the Arya
Akshobhya Tirtha Mutt. Then Akshobhya Tirtharu entered Vrundavana at Malakheda.

His direct Shishyaas

I. Sri Vidyaadhiraaja Tirtharu (1388-1412) He was not only his shishya but also
was the uttaradhikari. Once he had the darshana of Bhaageerathidevi when he was
near the Bheemarathi river. Initially he gave ashrama to Sri Rajendra Tirtha, who
went to Bangala region for tatvaprachara and stayed for more time. Since he didnt
returned for a long time, Sri Vidyadhiraja Tirtha gave ashrama to Sri Kavindra
Tirtharu. As such, two parampare came into existence one with the Rajendra Tirtha
parampare which subsequently became Vyasaraja Mutt. Sri Kavindra Tirtha
parampare was subsequently divided into another two fractions one Vibudendra or
Rayara Mutt and another Uttaradi Mutt.

He took ashrama from Brahmacharyashrama directly. Ashrama taken at Prayaga

Vrundavana Yeragola. (Even Sri Rajendra Tirtharu entered vrundavana at Yeragola


itself, but the Vrundavana is not traceable. Now, we can see only the vrundavanas of
Sri Ramachandra Tirtharu and Sri Vidyanidhi Tirtharu at Yeragola. It may be
somewhere in Yeragola amongst some places nearby)

Granthas

1. Geetha Vivruthi published by Sri Vyasamadhwa Pratistana in 2006


2. Vishnu Sahasranama Vivruthi published by Phalimaru Mutt in 1985

www.Sumadhwaseva.com Narahari Sumadhwa Page 10


Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

In Geetha Vivruthi manuscripts are now available in Devanagiri Lipi in and Nagari Lipi
in Mysore Oriental Library. Acharya Madhwa had not done the anuvada for all
shlokaas of Geetha, Sri Vidyadhiraja Tirtha has written meaning for these shlokas as
well. He has followed Geetha Bhashya and Geetha Tatparya Nirnaya of Acharya
Madhwa while giving the meaning.

It seems that Sri Vidyadhiraja Tirtha is the first amongst Dwaitha Vyakyanakaras who
wrote the vyakyana for Vishnu Sahasra Nama. In this grantha, it is observed that for
Vishwam word itself, he has given not less than 12 meanings.

II. Sri Vyasatirtharu (1370-1404) He is another vidya shishya and ashrama shishya.
But he was not throned the peeta. It is said that he was the first amongst Madhwas
to write Tippani for Upanishad Bhashya. His style is very simple and in his
narration there is expertise. His works are as follows :

a) Teeka for Dashopanishat Bhashya for the Vyaakyaana of Teekarayaru (except


Shatprashnopanishat Bhashya).

b) He wrote Bharata bhaavapanchika (vyaakyana for Mahabharata Tatparya Nirnaya).

c) It is said that he has written vyakyana for Acharya Madhwas Tantrasara sangraha and
pramana maalika.

d) He has written Jayatirtha Vijaya(with 5 sargaas) Jayatirtha Vijaya is not complete. It


contains the life history of Teekarayaru only upto the blessings of Saraswathi to
Jayatirtharu. In the first two sargaas, he has narrated Acharya Madhwa and his four direct
shishya and their works. There is mention of vaakyartha with Vidyaranya and Vedantha
Deshikas decision. The third sarga contains Jayatirthas poorvashrama history, his
marriage. The fourth sarga contains meet with Akshobhya Tirtha. The fifth sarga contains
Sanyasa deekshe of Jayatirtharu.

e) Anu Jayatirtha Vijaya (34 shlokaas), which contain the full life history. Here he has
mentioned that Jayatirtharu is the avatara of Indra, and that he got the blessings of
Durgadevi. In Anu Jayatirtha Vijaya, there is mention of Vadeendra and other advaitee
defeats and also has information on Vidyadhiraja getting pattabhisheka as uttaradhikari.

In the Anu Jayatirtha Vijaya the final shloka reads as follows


c qrr: MiqiuzS uq M l u
Mi xqirjqsu apUlSl uhi uhi q |

Sri Jayatirthas vaadi vijaya and other history cant be explained by anybody. I am only
briefly explaining the charitre or story which he was narrating to me daily.

www.Sumadhwaseva.com Narahari Sumadhwa Page 11


Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

It means that Vyasatirtharu narrated in Jayatirtha Vijaya, what Sri Jayatirtharu told
personally to him. As such, it is considered as a pramana grantha. This grantha is written
with the saakshat experience.

Vyasatirtharu has narrated that Akshobhyatirtha gave him paramahamsaashrama, taught


Sarvamoola grantha, and sent him for Vishnu sarvottamatva and for the nigraha of other
kubhashyakaars.

Sri Raghottama Tirtharu has quoted some of his Teekaas in his granthas. Sri Jagannatha
Tirtharu in his Bhashyadeepika has also narrated some of his quotes.

His Vrundavana is at Malakheda itself.

c) Sri Srinivasaacharyaru - He was one of the gruhasta shishyaru. He has written


vyakyana for vande vishNum namaami taaratamya stotra.

Vaadi nigraha - Digvijaya :- A Peetadhipathis main duty is to ensure that Srimadacharya


siddantha sthapana and paramatha khandana. If any Khandana is written on any Madhwa
Grantha, the peetadhipathi must immediately do the Mandana condemning the Khandana with
satisfactory documents. The Sanyaasees used to go on Digvijaya to various places, wherein he
has to invite pundits of other siddanthaas and do vaakyaartha and defeat them.

a) Defeat of Vidyaranya, a famous Advait pandit -


Vidyaranyas period 1302-1387AD
Jayatirthas sanyasa period 1365-1387 AD

Vidyaranya, a famous Advaitha Philosopher, said to be an incarnation of Shankaracharya


himself by Advaitha followers has done a great role in the establishment of Vijayanagar
Kingdom. In his poorvashrama his name was Maadhavaacharya, and during this period itself,
he did many of his administrative work in Vijayanagar Kingdom. He was instrumental in
guiding Hakka Bukka.

Once he was on his Tirthayatra tour. On his way, he came to Malakheda. There he heard that
in Yeragola, a shishya of Akshobhya Tirtha was doing the grantha rachana. He remembered
the incident where Akshobhya Tirtha had defeated him at Mulabagilu during their vaakyartha
on tattvamasi. Having seen Akshobhya Tirtharu and his Knowledge, he now wanted to see
how is his shishya. He came near the cave where, at that time Sri Jayatirtha was writing
Pramana Lakshana Teeka.

One of the disciple of Jayatirtha informed him that Vidyaranya had come and would like to
have a discussion. Jayatirtha readily agreed. Both had a formal meeting initially. Now,
Vidyaranya wanted to test Jayatirtha, asked him.

Vidyaranya - Mpul kOrbhavaan?


Jayatirtha - xmmW sappOhaM

www.Sumadhwaseva.com Narahari Sumadhwa Page 12


Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

Vidyaranya - UT: Yu ai: rEfa: kva gata:


Jayatirtha - iurumi mU tvayaivapahrutaa puraa |

Here actually Vidyaranya intentionally said Mpul kOrbhavaan? Instead of M pul?


kObhavaan? including refa. Jayatirtha replied xmmW. sappOhaM He should have said xmW,
sarppOhaM he had left refa which Vidyaranya had included. Vidyaranya asked him as to
what happened to refa, Jayatirtha replied that Vidyaranya himself had kidnapped refa.
With this Vidyaranya realised that Jayatirtha is not an ordinary man. A true shishya of
Akshobhya Tirtha.

Then Vidyaranya asked Jayatirtha as to what he is doing? Jayatirtha replied that he is doing the
vyakyana for Acharya granthas. He also gave him the pramana lakshanas grantha by
Acharya Madhwa to Vidyaranya. He went through a few lines of the grantha, and could not
understand anything as to what Acharya Madhwa has written. Then he told Jayatirtha "os
uYrl M q" (looks like childish words). Jayatirtha could not tolerate these words on Acharya
Madhwa and told whether grantha is baala vaakya or your mind itself like childish. Then he
gave him his Teeka on Pramana Lakshana - viz., Nyayakalpalatha.

Vidyaranya went through the pages (taale gari) of Teeka on Pramana Lakshana. It was not
even completed. Only half way through. Now he realized the greatness of Acharya Madhwa.
Same words of Acharya Madhwa being brought to the world in a simple style by Jayatirtha. He
recognized the narration style, it was simply superb. He repented for his durahankara and
disrespect shown earlier.

He said I knew your guru Akshobhya Tirtha. You being the shishya of him is really great. He
made sastanga namaskara and held the grantha written by Jayatirtha with due respect on his
head. He also requested him to permit him to honour his great work. Jayatirtha told him that
as soon as it is finished, he will send a copy of the same to him also.

Jayatirtha completed the Teeka on Pramana Lakshana and did the samarpana in front of the
vrundavana at Malakheda.

Vidyaranya showed his respect to Jayatirtharu with great procession (ambary elephant)
followed by vedaghosha, kept all his granthas on an elephant.

Note : 1. It seems that Vidyaranya must have met Sri Jayatirtharu after 1365AD only, that too
after the Vrundavana pravesha of Akshobhya Tirtharu. But it is surprising that even though he
is defeated by Jayatirtharu, Vidyaranya has not recorded the same in his works. He has
mentioned about Vedanta Deshika in Ramanuja Darshana but not mentioned about Jayatirtha.
He has written about Poornapragna Darshana, there also no mention of Jayatirtha. As such, it
seems that Vidyaranya must have met Teekarayaru during the early part of sanyasa of
Jayatirtharu, and he may not come across all his works, that is why he has narrated in
sarvadarshana sangraha by Vidyaranya.

www.Sumadhwaseva.com Narahari Sumadhwa Page 13


Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

2. Sri Chalari Sankarashanacharya opines in his book Jayatirtha Vijaya vyakyana,


that the Vidyaranya who met Jayatirtha was junior Vidyaranya. (In Vidyaranya parampare all
the yathees would be having the name Vidyaranya.)
3. But Vidyaranyas (Maadhavacharya who had a vaagvaada at Mulbagilu) period is
1302-1387 and has accepted by many. As such, he (Senior Vidyaranya) only must have had
vaagvaada with Jayatirtha.

(I have gone through the books of Dr BNK Sharma, Korate Srinivasarao, Dr Prabhanjanachar,
while writing the above article and only summarized to the best of my capacity. If any one can
supplement with better research article, it would be beneficial to bring out the actual facts.)

b) Defeat of Bhairava Somayaji.


c) Defeat of Vidyasaagara Vadeendra, another Advaitha famous pandit - This
incident has been narrated in Sri Bidarahalli Srinivasakruta Sri Jayaaryastuti. Vidyasaagara
Vadeendra is said to be the guru of Brahmananda Bharathi who had written Purushartha
Prabodha titled grantha. Once during his visit to Kolhapur, he had a long vakyartha with Sri
Vadeendra, and defeated him. The Vakyartha was in the context of Tathvamasi and Jeeva-
brahma Aikya.
d) Defeat of ShaktEya team in Sriranga. - This team of ShaktEya having known of the
fact that they could not defeat Jayatirtharu with Granthaas, tried to defeat through miscreant
method. They did the araadhana of some kshudra devate and got the blessings of that kshudra
devate. They brought a new way of argument that Shakthi devate herself is responsible for
the srusti of this world and not Vishnu. They further told that Brahma, Rudra, and Vishnu
are the santaana of Shakthi only. Sri Jayatirtharu through his Tapa shakthi made the kshudra
shakthi seem nothing and with his vyaakyaana of UtpattasambhavaadhikaraNa of
Brahmasootra and defeated them all.
e) Defeat of Kamadeva, a bouddha pandit in Ahmedabad. After having been
defeated by Jayatirtharu and accepting his defeat, Kamadeva, requested Jayatirtharu to become
the Chancellor of the Bouddha Vishwavidyanilaya at Ahmedabad. So, when Kamadeva went
to Tibet, for some time Jayatirtharu performed his duty as the Chancellor of the Ahmedabad
University.

Sri Pejavara Adhokshaja Mutt Swamiji Sri Vijayadhwaja Tirtharu, met Sri
Jayatirtharu and handed over the Grantha written by him titled Padarathnavali "mSUus" a
Vyakhyana for Srimad Bhagavatha and asked Sri Jayathirtharu to scrutinize the grantha and
bless him. The Vyakhyana is also called as Vijayadhwajeeya vyakhyana "uerkuer
urZrl".

Teeka Granthas on Madhwa Siddantha can be grouped into three., viz.,


a) Ancient Teekaas i.e., for the period from Srimadacharyas Badarikashrama pravesha
to Sri Jayateertharus period ( 1317 to 1365AD)
b) Jayatheertharus Teekaas Period 1365 to 1388
c) Arvaacheena Tippanees After Jayatheertharus period till date.

www.Sumadhwaseva.com Narahari Sumadhwa Page 14

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)

Sri Jayathirtharu (Teekarayaru)

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 Vyaasarajarus Tatparya Chandrika, Sri Raghunatha
Tirthas Shesha Tatparya Chandrike, Rayara Bhaavadeepa, Kundalagiri Acharyas
Rasakoolankasha, Pandurangi Keshavaachaaryas gururaajeeya, Vyaasa Tatvajna Tirthas

etc

2. Srimannyaaya sudha (Anuvyaakhyaana Teeka Sudha


Vishamapada vaakyaartha vivrutti )
"xk u mPlr uxk u mslr" 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,

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 Srimadacharyas vaakya, Teekarayaru has narrated the meanings given by Shankaracharya
and Bhaskara and condemned them. Here he has given the reference of Narahari Tirthas
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 : ll uSi: DUliriu eli: iu euliriu Mj l eli |


nanu vEdaaMtai: IshvaranityatvaM jaanaMta: tatraivOktaM jIvanityatvaM kathaM na jaanaati |
l c Apu: iUiqrul | na cha abhaava: taaratamyavaan |
- There cant 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


Srimadacharyas Geetha Tatparya NirNaya. This has Tippani in the name of
Kiranavali. 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


Srinivaasaachaaryas Kiranaavali, satyaprajna Tirthas bhaavaprakaasha, and Satyanaatha
Tirthas Tippani.

6. Ishavaasya upanishadbhashya Teeka This is the Teeka for Srimadacharyas


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 Bhagavanthas sarva vyaptatva & on all.

7. Shat Prashnopanishad Bhashya Teeka This is the Teeka for Acharya


Madhwass Shat Prashnopanishad Bhashya. Here six sages (Rushees) will ask questions.

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 svatantraM asvatantraM cha dvividhaM
tattvamiShyatE| xuil Axuil c uk iuqwri|. 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 xuil - 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.

the sangamakaarya of teekokthi is the marriage, Teekokthi of Prathivaadi
as servant, the hrudaya of Sudha Pandits as the house, panditas jnaana
vishesha as the vrutti, the saamarasya between moola of Acharya Madhwa
and Teeka of Sri Jayatirtharu as daampatya. Vadirajaru tells Grantha in

bridegroom. In this way, Sri Teekarayaru enjoyed by writing Teekaas on
Granthas of Srimadacharya and enjoyed.
