Tantra Saara Sangrahah is condensed adaptation of an earlier work by name Tantrasaara written by Sri Vedavyaasaru. It is an Aagama work. In this rare work, Sr Madhwacharyaru has elaborated the chanting of Ashta Mahaa Mantraas, efficacy of other Mahaa Mantraas, Establishment of idols in temples, the details of temple construction, Pooja procedures and practical rites. This book is a compendium of Maadhva ritualisms and rites. This Tantrasaara is valuable work which everyone should at least read once. Sri Madhwaru himself has told that by mere reading this text alone will give all benefits to the readers. Suppose readers indulge in practising what is told, will definitely get all the benefits without any doubt.
