Book Description


Vyasayogicharita of Somanatha kavi published last year, was the first in the series of biographies of saint scholars being brought out by the Dvaita vedanta foundation. Now we are happy to publish Jayathirtha Vijaya composed by Chalari Acharya. It carries a commentary written by the poet himself.

Sri Jayathirtha alias Teekacharya is a celebrated commentator on Sri Madhvacharya's works. His commentaries, particularly Nyaya Sudha have enriched Dvaita Vedanta literature. There are seven biographical poems that describe his life and works. Among these the present work gives more details than the others. This work is therefore selected for publication. Extracts from other works are also added.

In most of the works on Dvaita Vedanta, one or two verses that pay homage to Sri Jayathirtha are included. These bring out the excellance of Sri Jayathirtha's work. A few of such verses are also added. A detailed note on Sri Jayathirtha's works is given.

Prof. Prabhanjanacharya, a well known scholar and an exponant of Dvaita vedanta has edited this work. He is already known to the World of Dvaita scholars by his more than two dozen publications. He is a Member of our Academic and Research Committee. We thank him for editing this work.

We are happy to release it on the ocassion of the Seventeenth Akhila Bharata Madhva Tatvajnana Sammelana which is being held at Bangalore, under the presidentship of Prof. Prabhanjanacharya. We hope to publish a few more biographies of Saint Scholars in this regard.

Sri Jayatirtha and his works

Sri Jayatirtha, more popularly known as Sri Teekacharya, is the commentator of almost all the major works of Sri Madhwacharya (1238-1318), the founder of Dvaita School of Vedanta.

Sri Jayatirtha was the only son of Dhondo Narasimha. Deshpande (Chieftain) of Malkhed, situated on the banks of the river Kagini. Mangalavedhe, a small village near Pan-dharapura was his place of birth. He was a warrior and a good rider of the horses. About twenty he renounced the worldly life and became an ascetic. He became the diciple of Sri Akshobhya tirtha one of the direct disciples of Sri Madhwacharya. Akshobhya tirtha enjoys the reputation of defeating the famous Vidyaranya in a historic disputation over the sruthi passage 'Tattvamasi". This fact is supported by number of evidences including an inscription at Mulabagal, (Kolar District) Sri Jayatirtha succeded him as a pontiff and ruled the Vedanta peetha for 23 years (1365-1388 A.D). He toured: all over India propagating the Madhva Philosophy. Jayeendrodaya of Sri Karikehalli Srinivasacharya gives a detailed account of his tour.

Sri Jayatirtha spent major part of his life at Eragola (near Yadgir), writing commentaries on the works of Sri Madhwacharya. Malkhed was another place of his main activities. Finally he entered brindavan at Malkhed, the historic capital of Rastrakutas of Karnataka.
