Dwadasha Stotra Meaning:-
Dwadasha Stotra was composed by Acharya Madhva. At the time of Lord Krishna Idol in Udpi, Dwadasha means twelve so there are 12 Strots which are in praise of Lord Vishnu. Although all tweleve strots are in praise on God but the third strot is the philosophy of Madhvacharya. It is a ritual to recite Dwadasha Stotra at the time of “Naivediya” of Bhog (offering Food to God) in Madava Temple.
