Sangraha Ramayana

Sangraha Ramayana of Sri Narayana Panditacharya is published in Kannada and Sanskrit PDF downloadable format.

Ramayana and Mahabharata are like Sun and Moon in the sky of literature. Ramayana details the incarnation of Lord Rama, likewise Mahabharata deciphers Lord Krishna. It is Apt if one says “nothing is left untouched by these twin magnanimous literatures”. Together, they have inspired most of the literatures in the word. Not only they stand as luminaries in the literature, but they are beacons in radiating the essential spiritual aspects.

If Mahabharata authored  by Sarvottama – Lord Sri Vedavyasa shines as epitome in the expanse of literature,  Sriman-Mahabharata-Tatparya-Nirnaya,  written by Jivotama Sri Madhwacharya  stands best in its class. Similarly Moola Ramayana (शत कोटि प्रविस्तरम् ) authored by Lord Hayagreeva), serves as basis for Valmiki Ramayana and Acharya Madhwa’s  write up on Ramayana in Sri-Mahabharata-Tatparya-Nirnaya. Through Lord Hayagreeva, the incaranation of Mahavishnu, Ramayana came to Lord Brahma. Then from Brahma, it came to sage Narada. From sage Narada it came to Valmiki. Presently this Valmiki Ramayana is popularly available amongst us.

निर्दग्धेषु च लोकेषु वाजिरूपेण वै मया श्रुत्वाजगाद च मुनीन् प्रति देवश्चतुर्मुखः….. वाल्मीकिना च यत्प्रोक्तं रामोपाख्यानमुत्तमम् ब्रह्मणाभिहितं तच्च शतकोटिप्रविस्तरम् आहृत्य नारदायैव तेन वाल्मीकिना पुनः  – substantiate these aspects.

Acharya Madhwa (being Hanuman who personally associated as the most important participant in Ramayana)  principally relied on Moola Ramayana (Taught by Lord Hayagreeva-spanning 100 Crore Slokas) ,Purana and Vedas, when he analyses Ramayana (Refer Chapters 3 to 9 ) in Mahabharatha Tatparya Nirnaya. Many followers of Acharya Madhwa have quoted selective slokas from Valmiki Ramayana too, establishing its validity.

Being the son of Sri Trivikrama-Panditacharya, who was the ardent disciple of Sri Bhagavatpadacharya, he had the fortune to mingle and communicate to Acharya Madhwa too. This work Sangraha Ramayana is more of elaborate sloka version of Madhwa Ramayana ( part of Mahabharata-Tatparya-Nirnaya).

Sangraha Ramayana consists of 8 Khandas,  spread over 64 chapters  with 3456 Slokas. For Tatwa it relies on Madhwa Ramayana and for details it relies on Valmiki Ramayana. Speciality of this work, is its simplicity coupled with preciseness. Mani-Manjari stands for simplicity. Madhwa-Vijaya stands as high-class work. Where-as Sangraha Ramayana takes a class in between these two.

Sri Narayana-panditacharya’s  class in depiction, emotional rhythm, analytical depth, needs only to be experienced.

Also Aditya Hridaya is appended at the  end as additional utility.
