There are seven biographical poems that describe his life and works. Among these the present work gives more details than the others. This work is therefore selected for publication. Extracts from other works are also added.

In most of the works on Dvaita Vedanta, one or two verses that pay homage to Sri Jayathirtha are included. These bring out the excellance of Sri Jayathirtha's work. A few of such verses are also added. A detailed note on Sri Jayathirtha's works is given.

Mangalavedhe, a small village near Pan-dharapura was his place of birth. He was a warrior and a good rider of the horses. About twenty he renounced the worldly life and became an ascetic. He became the diciple of Sri Akshobhya tirtha one of the direct disciples of Sri Madhwacharya. Akshobhya tirtha enjoys the reputation of defeating the famous Vidyaranya in a historic disputation over the sruthi passage 'Tattvamasi". This fact is supported by number of evidences including an inscription at Mulabagal, (Kolar District) Sri Jayatirtha succeded him as a pontiff and ruled the Vedanta peetha for 23 years (1365-1388 A.D). He toured: all over India propagating the Madhva Philosophy. Jayeendrodaya of Sri Karikehalli Srinivasacharya gives a detailed account of his tour.
