Sudha Parimala is a popular work of Guru Raghavendra, and it was written in Sanskrit based on Dvaita philosophy and contains portions of Sri Jaya Teertha’s ‘Nyaya Sudha’, who was a great Madhwa Saint. This work was highly praised by many Hindu kings, and they have appreciated the talents of Guru Raghavendra.
According to Sri Madhwacharya, no one can merge with the god, and they cannot become the aspects of the almighty. One can taste the essentials of Krishna Bhakti, and can become a great saint and also can attain heavenly abode, but they cannot become part and parcel of the god. This Sudha Parimala work contains the greatness of Lord Vishnu, his avatars, and mainly it covers the significance of Lord Krishna, and his merciful aspects. Raghavendra had won in the debates with the scholars, and proved that Lord Hari is the supreme god among all others.
