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.
