Sri Hari Sarvothama Vayu Jivothama!
Om Sri Guru RAghavendraya Namaha!
If it be acknowledged that Acarya Madhva’s summary of the entire Mahabharata is itself a work of uncommon skill and comprehension, then it must also be acknowledged that an attempt to summarize the Acarya’s work in a manner easily accessible to lay folk with little capacity and no training, is also very difficult.
This latter task has, however, been carried out with aplomb by the renowned Sri Raghavendra Tirtha, who captures the essential aspects of each chapter of the Mahabharata-Tatparya-Nirnaya in one verse. We hereby present the following as an introduction to this grand text by one qualified to make it. (Errors in transcription, translation, etc., are however solely our fault.)
