Taratamya Stotra

One of the important points brought out by Sri Madhvacharya was the “taratamya” or hierarchy amongst Jivas (sentient beings). Vishnu and Mahalakshmi, are of course, on top and out of the taratamya list. Next follows Brahma, Vayu, their wives, Anantha, Shesha, Rudra and so on. This hierarchy is naturally reflected in our material world as well.

The Taratamya Stotra is a composition which describes this hierarchy in detail. I am uploading this beautiful stotra in Kannada script to my mantras page. You can download it by clicking here.

Also, if you are just interested in just the list and the order of the hierarchy (in English), you can read this page.
