References in ancient literature

Great literary and historical works like Sumadhwa Vijaya (authored by Shri Narayana Panditacharya) and Theerthaprabandha of Shri Vadiraja Gurusarvabhoumaru are ancient works which eulogize and sing the praise of Shree Durgadevi of Vimanagiri. These ancient works give us factual details and required education to understand the significance of the Shrine.

Sumadhwa Vijaya (2-11) gives a detailed elaboration about the place while describing the significance of Pajaka Kshetra, the birth place of Jagadguru Shri Madhwacharya. Sumadhwa Vijaya refers to the place as Vimanagiri, the abode of Lord Krishna’s sister Durga, installed by Lord Parashurama (the 6th incarnation of Lord Vishnu).

Theerthaprabandha (Paschima prabandha 17.20) makes a mention to Durgadevi, who is ever residing on Vimanagiri in affection towards Her son Shri Madhwacharya. It further eulogizes Godess Durga and extols Her as the Slayer of Mahishasura. It describes the Goddess as Thrishuladharini, the giver Swarga (Heaven) and the Moksha (Liberation) for the qualifying devotees. Durga, the destroyer of the evil, is extolled as the Divine Mother, Protector and Saviour of the good, who resides in the hearts of all living beings.

Theerthaprabandha also eulogizes Durga as unfathomable even to the Devas and the learned! Further it mentions that She is ever inaccessible and unconquerable by the unrighteous, evil and wicked; hence the name Durga stands appropriate!

Apart from the above Sanskrit works, the Dasa Sahitya too makes a mention about the glory of this Kshetra, Shri Vijayadasaru has sung the glory of Lord Parashurama and Durga of Kunjarugiri. He has recorded the specialities of the Kshetra.
