Vayu Stuti is one of the most famous Stutis (poems) composed by Sri
Trivikrama Panditacharyain praise of Sri Madhvacharya, the founder of the Dvaitaschool of philosophy. Madhvas, or the followers of Sri Madhvacharya, believe him to be an incarnation of Lord Mukhyapranaor Vayu and the Vayu Stuti has been written recognizing this belief.
Legend has it that during daily puja done by Sri Madhvacharya in the sanctum sanctorum of Udupi
Sri Krishnatemple behind closed doors, Trivikrama Panditacharyaused to recite the Dvadasha stotraoutside. The end of naivedyaor ceremonial offering of food to the Lord was indicated by sounding of bells. However one day, Trivikrama Panditacharya got increasingly curious as the sound of bells was not heard even after a long time. He peeked through the door and to his utter amazement found Sri Madhva performing puja to Lord Shri Ramaas Hanuman, to Lord Krishnaas Bhimasena and to Lord Veda Vyasaas Madhvacharya. Overcome by Bhakti, he composed the Vayu Stuti and dedicated it to Madhvacharya.
The Vayu Stuti comprises 41 paras. It is usual practice to chant the Vayu Stuti by starting and ending it with the Narasimha Nakha Stuti, a short two-para composition by Sri Madhva in praise of Lord
Narasimha. It is said that when Trivikrama Panditacharya presented his work, Sri Madhva insisted that the work should not be dedicated to his praise alone and instantly composed the Nakha Stuti and instructed that it be chanted before and after the Vayu Stuti.
The Vayu Stuti is also known as Hari Vayu Stuti.
