The poet next eulogises the 11th pontiff of the matha, Sri Vibhudendra Tirtha. Let Sri Vibhudendratirtha, the ardent disciple of the brilliant Srimadaachaaryaru and the foremost of the unbeatable warriors of the batallion of the gods and pandits, who can establish the dvaita vedanta without help from anyone and defeat the maayaavaadins and who continuously worships Sri Veda Vyaasaru and Sri MoolaRaamachandramurthi, shine effulgently.
In this poem it is highlighted that Sri Madhvacharya and Vibhudendra tirtha both have in common the svabhava or nature of silencing others and hence is a classic example of Svabhavokti Arthaalankaaraa. By using the word vighatanaghatana the poet has used the chekaanupraasaa alankaara. Sarvatantra svatantre is vritti anupraasa alankaaraa.

In the service of Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu,
