As was the norm in those days, his birth name Vasudevacharya was changed to Poomapragyna and then Anandatirtha. During his stay in the ashrama and after his completion of the compulsory ashramic life, Sri Anandatirtha was busy laying the foundations of a philosophy which was different from the ones being practiced then, the most popular being the Advaita philosophy.
He is best described in these modern times as a research scholar, who delved into the most difficult of the actual vedic texts and made a simple analysis of the Vedic philosophy, which we now call as Dwaita Philosophy. This philosophy is simple yet complex. The relationship between the two is separate yet conjoined. Sri Anandatirtha defended very successfully in debates and orations at various forums, in an effort to convince, establish and spread the foundations of the Dwaita philosophy, among the religious leaders and people.
One of the very influential and respected followers of Advaita phiiososphy, Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya of present day Kasargod in Kerala state, challenged Sri Anandatirtha for a debate. The fortnight fang continuous debate finally saw Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya accepting defeat and becoming an ardent convert to the Dwaita philosophy, in the process, he also became one of the most favorite students of Sri Anandtirtha, now begun to be called Sri Madhvacharya.
Sri Madhvacharya is credited with the writing of the Dwadasha stotra which extols the various virtues and avatars of Sri Han or Vishnu. One day, during the daily recitation of the Dwadasha stotra, Sri Madhvacharya suddenly went inside his room indicating that he should not be disturbed.
Finding this rather strange, Sri Trivikrarna Panditacharya, peeped in the room through the open window. Filled with trepidation, confusion, happiness, surprise, he quickly wrote a poem which he called Vayu stuti and presented it to Sri Madhvacharya. While not accepting the poem in its present form as it only extolls his avatars, Sri Madhvacharya added two slokas Nakha stuti to the beginning and at the end of the Vayu stuti and called it as Sri HariVayu Stuthi.
Nakha Stuti describes one of the avatars of Sri. Vishnu, Narasimha. The two slokas describing the power in just the Nakha fingernail of Narasimha. Dwaparayuga and the very beginning of kaliyuga. The Hari Vayu Stuti comprises 8 sectionss.

The Righteous people Satvik after serving their elders and gurus lead a wonderful life in Vaikuntha where they are served by servants and enjoy the company of beautiful damsels and frequent Darshan of Shree Hari.
The enemies of Shree Hari and Vayu Tamasa are pushed into the boiling muddy waters of Hell with large boulders being thrown on them by the loyal servants of Shree Hari and Vayu.
Even microscopic life forms Jalookadi do not spare such enemies. The Rajasa set of people, who understand but care less about the teachings of Shree Acharya, though on account of their vicinity of Acharya and his three forms Avataras , lead relatively trouble free lives.
Vayudeva, your enemies the Tamasic set of people eyes are gouged with sharp fingernails and teeth and spit as they are perpetually famished. These people are covered in urine and blood and drown in the boiling waters in deep Hell filled with vicious microscopic life forms Krimigalu , all the while shouting in horrible voices.
While their bodies are being attacked by vicious eagles, mad dogs and crows, during this painful period, your loyal servants, O Vayudeva, attack these people mercilessly with any weapon.

In the terrible war that followed soon after, you destroyed the Kauravas. We are overawed with your accomplishments and pay obeisance to you with our body and mind.

As a result of Bharati Devi, Draupadi came to be regarded as highly knowledgeable. The lack of knowledge, O Vayudeva, is making us listless, morose and driving us to deep sluggishness. We plead with you to impart some knowledge that will help us overcome these feelings.

Sri Hari Vayustuti | ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ವಾಯುಸ್ತುತಿ
Vayu Stuti is one of the most famous Stutis poems composed by Sri Trivikrama Panditacharya in praise of Sri Madhvacharya , the founder of the Dvaita school of philosophy. Madhvas, or the followers of Sri Madhvacharya, know that Madhvacharya is the third incarnation of Lord Mukhyaprana ,being the first incarnation or Vayu who is the main deity and the Vayu Stuti has been written recognizing this order of incarnation. Legend has it that during daily puja done by Sri Madhvacharya in the sanctum sanctorum of Udupi Sri Krishna temple behind closed doors, Trivikrama Panditacharya used to recite the Dvadasha stotra outside. The end of naivedya or 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. Overcome by Bhakti , he composed the Vayu Stuti and dedicated it to Madhvacharya. The Vayu Stuti comprises 41 paras.
