Written by Sri Madhvacharya


As stated in an earlier posting Srimadacharya has stated that the Vedas

have three meanings. He has illustrated this  by writing a commentary on  about forty hymns or 'suktas' from the Rig veda , starting with 'AgnimeelE purOhitam... ', expaining how this Sukta is primarily a prayer to Lord Vishnu.  As in the case of all his works, he has,in this commentary also ,shown that the Vedas uphold the supremacy of Lord Vishnu,  and the dependence of all the gods (devatas) on Him.  Srimadacharya has explained the importance of 'Rishi, Devata and Chandas" in reciting Vedas. This work should be treated as the guiding principle for interpreting Vedic hymns.
