Namaskara to all Haribhakthaas,

Mantraartha Manjari by Sri Raghavendraru-

dhira sriraghavendravrativara sujananugrahavyagracitai-
racaryaih sangrhitah katicana manavah sarabhutah srutibhyah |
tanevoddhrtya bhuyah sruitsu nidadhata sisyavargopaklaptyai
loke sadhu vyadhayi srutaguna bhavata” caryanuvrttih || 24

Sri Madhwacharaya had presented to the devotees a collection of many mantras in the composition called  Tantra saara sangraha.Jagadguru Sri Madwacharya while explaining the efficacy of this grantha says,
“Grantoyam paata maatrena sakalaabheesta siddhitah”.The recitation of this grantha itself is sufficient to get all our desires fulfilled then what could be said if it is attempted to understand it.

Sri Rayaru out of great mercy to the disciples had selected the mantras and explained in this work.  The poet uses the word sruti for both vedas and also the ears which receives the mantras mentioned.  Indeed the sajjanaaas are highly indebted to His Holiness for this grantha.

Charama sloka:

Doorvaadidvaantaravaea vaishnaveandeevareandavea Sri raghaveandraguruvea namotyantadayaluvea ||

He is like the sun in removing the darkness of propagation of untruth; He is like the moon in causing the flowering up of the devotees of Sri Vishnu; He is merciful to the greatest extent. I bow to Sri Guru Raghavendra.

Poojyaaya raghaveandraaya satyadharmaratayacha Bhajataam kalpavrukshaaya namataam kaamadheanuvea ||

I bow to Sri Raghavendra Swamy of the following reputation:Revered; he guides us in the straight path of truth and good conduct; He fulfils the prayers of devotees completely just like the divine tree (kalpavrisksha) and the holy cow (kamadenu).

[contd]

Yours in the service of Sri Harih,

Venkatesh Rajendra Rao
