The title book 'Seshasvanitam' clearly indicaties that this is the last piece of my work. Prior to this
eight books of mine in different branches of literature like kavya, translation and eassays were
published. Some articles were also published in different magazines and news papers. the name of the
books, published are given in a separate page.
One Pandit Shri Prabhakar Dash of village Kalinga in Dhenkanal district of Orissa was eager to knwo the
meaning of some verses of 'Narasimha Stuti' (A poem of eulogy to Narasimha) which contained only twenty
two verses. Those verses were in tended to kill the enemies. The last lines of all the verses in teh
eulogy clearly indicate this purpose.
O almighty Narasimha! kill my evil-doers. But practically I am not interested in Black image of tantra
vidya by which one does harm to others of fulfils one's evil intention.
The artistic expression of the poem impressed me and induced to explain those verses. The readers are
requested to go throught the verses and feel the poetic charm, lying there in.
This eulogy finds a place in the 'Narasimha Stotramala', published by the Bharati Vedanta Academy in
Madhvacharya. Being impressed by his poetic talents and erudition Madhvachary advised him to write a
commentary on his 'Vedanta Sutra Bhasya'.
That commentary is known as 'Tattvadipika' 'Vayu Stuti' of this poet is recited as parayana by devotees
of Madhvacharya. The time of Shripada Madhvacharya is 1197 to 1276 A.D. So this poet most probably lived
in the latter half of thirteenth century.
Along with this poem of 'Trivikramacharya', some poems of mine are also included in the book
I express my hearty gratitude to Prof. Harekrishna Satapathy, Vice-Chancellor and Prof. A. Gurumurthy,
Registar, Rashtriya San-skrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati for their kind approval in publication of my work.
It gives me immense pleasure to acknowledge the help rendred by Dr. K. Suryanaryana and Dr. Dilip Kumar
Mishra in Publishing the work. I thank them from the core of my heart.
