The SabdhA rAmAkhyam should be taken along with the words in the first two lines and along with the words in the second two lines.

I (tulasi dAsar) offer my obeisances to the supreme being, with the name (SrI) rAmA, who is worshipped always by brahmA, Siva, AdiSESa (the Serpent Bed) and dEvEndra (the Leader of the Demigods), who is so peaceful since He is not touched by sorrow, anger, hatred, etc., who is eternal (adi madhya anta rahita - not limited by time), who's qualities (kalyANa guNAs) are immeasureable (viz. pUrNamadha pUrNamidam SlOkam) yet perfect (Suddha Sattva guNas untouched by rAjasa and tAmasa) and who grants mOkSa which is limitless peace. This all-pervading Supreme Being, who has the name (SrI) rAma, who is sung by the vEdAs, is not only the guru to the demigods but is also the one who plays deceitful (yet wonderful) tricks by coming down from SrIvaikuNTam as a human king, SrIrAmachandran, yet did not show a single kalyANaguNa of His pararUpam as paramapadanAthan. He is the one who steals our pApAs (and punyAs) like Lord hari stole butter from the pots of the gopa-gopikas of nandagrAmam. This is the same Lord hari who jumped from SrIvaikuNTam to the lake shore from where SrI gajEndrazhvAn, the king of the elephants, called out for the Primodial Being (Supreme Personality of Godhead) to rescue him from the crocodile. I (obeisances) to the most compassionate one who is the best one from the raghu dynasty and is the crown jewel amongst kings who rule this earth.

A Divine master sings a masterpiece.

A voice that starts with a meditative mood that collects and makes the clouds gather in response to the Divine beauty in the singing, then makes the clouds dance and chase each other, roaring now and then in joyful abandon and then as the octaves and the swaras are hit, they pierce those same playful clouds to release, fall on earth in splendid showers of blessings.

A : The girls who are drawn to him and assemble to listen to his music - have they snared him away and taken him some place?

C : Can he laugh with those young girls when I am agonising here, muttering to myself, squirming like a worm in my anxiety?

Has he left me in lurch forgetting those assuring words he has spoken earlier, "My dearest, I will not like to be separated from you even for a moment".

For song Muripemugatige of album: Sukhanubhav Malladi Brothers2010-04-05 21:05:05
A very beautiful neraval on the centerpiece of the caranams --

IDu lEni malaya mArutamu cE
kUDina kAvErI taTam(a)ndu

Thyagaraja says to The Lord -- the place, ThiruvaiyAru, you have chosen for your residence on the banks of the flowing Kaveri where the gentle winds are directed from the malaya - mountains of the western ghats abounding in sandalwood trees -- you must be so proud to have chosen residence here with Mother Sita as your consort and Sri Lakshmana, the eternal servitor, by your side.

In the second part of this beautiful caranam, Thyagaja says even Lord Siva resident of this sacred place, would be happily directing his attention to such a place where beautiful homes with terraces reverberate with the chanting of vedas,where auspicious oblations are offered along with worship done by brahmins.

For song Sandehamunu of album: Sukhanubhav Malladi Brothers2010-04-04 03:06:00
What a sublime notion of greatness attributed to the Divine feet of Lord Sri Rama, complete loyalty and reverence is expressed in this beautiful rare krithi of Thyagaraja!

In Ramayana, Bharatha introduced the notion of paduka worship, by according reverence to the sacredness of the sandals worn briefly by Sri Rama, then by carrying this auspicious representation of Sri Rama on his head to Nandigram and then, by placing the Divine paduka at the throne and worshipping it as the true symbol of the presence of the Lord until his return. Bharatha acted as caretaker of all in Ayodhya that was truly Rama's in an ever so humble manner setting an example of solid devotion and unflinching faith. So Thyagaraja's expression of this act by Bharatha is to say can there be anything more sublime than the fortune of worshipping the paduka of Sri Rama, which Bharatha alone was destined to have. Such glory was his alone and beyond comparison. The dust of the feet of Sri Rama is more merciful than anything else.

For song Sandehamunu of album: Sukhanubhav Malladi Brothers2010-04-04 03:04:03

Translation of the Krithi : Courtesy -- Todd McComb


O Mind, worship Chandra (pure and pleasing) who is like the hearts of all good men.

(Worship Him) Always, the Lord of the stars praised by the guardian deities of Indra and others, who moistens the Earth, the one with sixteen digits, and rich in nectar.

(Worship Him) The ornament on Lord Shiva's crest, the cool-rayed, the four-armed, the parasol of Madana, the night-maker, the eye of Lord Venkatesa, mentally created by Virat, the inflictor of suffering[8], the friend of the night-lotus, and the face of Lord Subramanya who became the teacher of the creator. (Worship Him) Who bears the mark of the hare, who was first cursed and later favored by Brhaspati, with his white body shining bright in autumn, the wearer of armlets, bracelets, necklace and crown, enemy of the day-lotus and a courteous lover of Rohini.

For song Dhanadhanya Pushpabhara of album: Bela Boye Jay - Various2010-03-06 03:37:39
BY Zakariya Mohyuddin

Fields of golden grains,
meadows of fragrant flowers
Two delights from earth of her many natural treasures
Nestled within is a place divine, set far above all measures
Created from dreams, anchored by memories
Nowhere else a place of such luminous glories

This the Queen of all lands on earth
This the land of my birth, the hallowed land of my birth
This place a beacon, bright as sun, moon and stars of heaven

A glowing inviting vessel under the churns of darkening skies
A magical land whose crooning birds awaken me to the morning light
And the same melodious sounds bid me into the night
Whose birds suckle nectar from blossoming flowers
Then nest underneath for their nightly shelter

The soothing serenity of its rivers that glisten
And the distant hazes of its mountains jut the horizon
Its land bursting with the glow of blooms ablaze
And fusing with the sky into an enchanted place
Its fields of grains stir as ripples of waves
Played upon by the gentle winds in their seasonal embrace

This bond that tugs, rivals love for a brother or mother
I yearn we not separate but forever stay together
This land that nourished and nurtured me from birth
How I wish this be the place of my final breath on earth.

NOTE: The thoughts and imagery in this English rendition are from Bengali lyrics by D.L. Roy “Amar Jonmo Bhumi”. I have merely provided the English words. The richness and subtleties of an original language do not transfer in translation. My attempt at translation from Bengali was to magnify the universality of stirrings shared by humanity for their individual homelands, and to convey that no one people or nation has a monopoly on those longings. That recognition perhaps can help foster better understanding among feuding nations.

This is the 25th pasuram is Andal's Thiruppavai where Krsna and Gopis are having a conversation. The Gopis say they have come for receiving accessories for the Nombu rites, but their real desire is to serve Krsna. He tells them that may be difficult because of obstacles. Then the Gopis tell Krsna......

" You were born as the son of Devaki and on the same night you became the son of Yasoda. To the former you gave the pleasure of giving birth to you (avataara-rasa), and to the latter the pleasure of enjoying your sport (leela-rasa). Having falsified Kamsa's evil intentions, you made him fall on his own head. All this you did because of your love for your votaries. So nothing is impossible for you.You can do away with all obstructions. The only thing we need is for you to bless us with your Service."

"Vedanta Desikar, the great Vaishnavite scholar composed his Kamasikashtakam on Lord Narasimha enshrined at the temple of Velirukkai in Kanchi. This is a divya desam as it was sanctified by Azhwars and the Lord here is referred to as Kamasika Narasimhan as he is said to have settled (Asika) here to meditate of his own free will (Kama). The deity is in yogic posture and has three eyes, a feature that is also seen in the Narasimha at the Singaperumal Koil near Madras."

For song Sri Gopalavimsati of album: Slokas2010-02-01 23:55:17
"Swami Sri Vedanta Desikan composed 20 verses in praise of Gopala and prayed that he should be blessed with thoughts exclusively about HIM during his final moments (Anthima Smrithi) on this earth. Swami composed these twenty verses, when he was overcome by the beauty of the Archa Murthy of Sri Rajagopalan in the Divya Desam at Thiruvahindrapuram. The Sanskrit name for twenty is Vimsathi and hence these twenty verses in praise of Sri Gopala are celebrated as Sri Gopala Vimsathi. For more than 700 years, these verses have been sung prior to Sri Vaishnava TadhiyAraadhanams (Group partaking of food presented to the Lord earlier) to seek the Lord's blessings and during the occasion of marriages to confer the blessings of the Lord on the bride and the bridegroom.

Swami Sri Vedanta Desikan paints a word picture of the incomparable beauty of Sri Gopalan, describes the structure of His mantram and affectionately recalls the many mischievous deeds performed by Bala Gopalan in Gokulam and BrindhAvanam to the utter delight of the humans and the celestial beings.

Sri Gopala Vimsathi must have been very dear to Swami Desikan as indicated by his inclusion of the twelfth verse of this stotram in his esoteric master piece known as Sankalpa Suryodhayam. There, he depicts Narada descending from heaven singing joyously the above verse during his journey to meet Purushan and initiate him into the Maha Mantram of the Lord...."

Recited on Janmashtami, in celebration of the birth of the Lord.

For song Sri Gayathri Ramayanam of album: Slokas2010-02-01 23:48:08

The above collection of 24 verses which carry the 24 Beejaaksharas is called as Gayatri Ramayana. It is said that by chanting this everyday, one will acquire the same merit as one acquires by chanting the entire Ramayana."

For song Aaj Rona Pada To Samjhe of album: Girl Friend2010-02-01 19:06:28
Today when the occasion came for me to weep, I realized what is the value of mirth. Only when I understod the meaning of loss, I understood everything....understood the limits of dreams, the value of cherished hopes.....how difficult it is to find joy, how the world plays havoc with your heart. Today, when I have been made to become distant from this color filled mehfil - this mysterious promise of a place, I have understood. The ones I set out to embrace have turned out to be shallow, no song blooms in their hearts. One thing I know for sure is that I have understood the nature of things only when I have lost my peace. I now know the value of Laughter.

O Lord praised by Lord Siva! O Lord with sapphire hued body! O Sacred Lord worshipped by this tyAgarAja!

Is it possible to see anywhere such comeliness as that of Yours?

(a) the shining face with a pair gleaming cheeks;
(b) the feet worshipped by the celestials;
(c) the hands that bestow freedom from fear;
(d) the lovable body that puts to shame the cupid;
(e) the lips resembling the beautiful (red) bimba fruit;
(f) the chest adorned with flowers of vakuLa tree;
(g) the hands that wield arrows and bow kOdaNDa;
(h) the smile;
(i) the curls of hair (falling on forehead); and

Thyagaraja asks the Lord for alms - bhakti bicchAm....please grant me feeling-soaked pure sattivika bhakti towards you so I may stay focussed, free of desire and material wants. This auspicious bhakti is superior to everything even above that of mukti. Of what use is reciting verses or chants or reading the sastras, agamas, puranas and vedas if bhakti is absent from the heart, says Thyagaraja. So please Lord, grant me mercy so that I may have unalloyed devotion towards you.

For song Tum Meri Rakho Laaj Hari of album: Sanskar2010-01-24 05:35:53
Beautiful surdas bhajan.

Tum meri rakho laaj Hari............

Surdas lamenting his ways says Krishna, (hari) please save my dignity and self-respect. As One who knows everything (antaryami) you know everything about me. I have not done any good deeds. I have committed many sins (avaguna), giving me no peace robbing every moment. I have been blinded by material attachments to wife, child (family) and money. I have lost discretion. This fallen Surdas surrenders before you. Water has seeped into the boat of my life and it is doomed to sink. Please save my dignity.

For song Tum Meri Rakho Laaj Hari of album: Sanskar2010-01-24 03:26:06
tum meri rakho laaj hari
tum jaanat sab antaryami
karni kachhu na kari
tum meri rakho hari.....
avaguna mose bisrat nahi
pal chhin ghari ghari
tum meri rakho laaj .....
dara sut dhan moh liye ho
sudh budh sab bisari
ab meri rakho laaj hari
tum meri rakho laaj hari....
sur patit ko beg ubaaro
ab mori naav bhari
tum meri rakho laaj hari.........

bhujhat is braj for pUchat...


Krishna said, 'O fair beauty, who are you?
Where do you live? Whose daughter are you?
I never yet saw you in the lanes of Braj.'

Radha said, 'What need have I to come this way?
I play by my own door/area. (khElati rahati Apane pauri)
But I hear that some son of Nanda
is in the habit of stealing butter and curds.'

Krishna said, 'Look, why should I appropriate
anything that's yours? Come, let's play together.'

Suradasa says: By his honeyed words,
Krishna, the crafty prince of amorists,
beguiled Radha and put her at ease.

Meaning from Vinay Patrika :

You are merciful and I am destitute; You grant wishes and I am the seeker. I am a well-known fallen one and You absolve away the heap of sins. You protect the orphans, and there is no orphan like me [hence, protect me]. There is no pain-absolver like You and I am in immense pain [hence, absolve my pain].||1-2||

You are the Brahman and I am a [destitute] living-being; You are the Preceptor and I am a disciple. You are for my benefit in each way — as father, mother, preceptor, or friend. My relations with You are infinite [since You are present in everything], so assume the one You like. At least, this way, Tulsi will get refuge in Your dual-feet.||3-4||

For song Pratamodhyayaha of album: Devi Mahatmyam2010-01-19 04:41:14

The glory of Durga is described in Markendeya Purana. Known as Devi Mahatmyam or Durga SaptaSati, it has 700 slokas. The Eternal Mother is depicted in this Devi Saptasati - Sri Lakshmi represents Iccha shakti (wealth), Sri Saraswati represents Jnana Shakti (knowledge) and Sri Kali represents Kriya Shakti (strength). All three merge in one form as Durga.

The Devi Matmiyam is the allegorical representation of the constant war going on within all of us--- between the divine and demonic natures resident within us.

In the Saptasati legend every dominant passion and vice has its special Demon representative. For example, Shumbha is the embodiment of Lust, Nishumbha is Greed and Mashishasura represents Anger.....

Durga Saptashati or Devi Mahatmaya is recited during Dassera. The shorter version derived from the Saptasati, is the Saptasloki, which includes the famous verse -- Sarvamangalamangalye sive sarvaarthsaadhike,
Sharanye trayambike gauri narayani namostute .....

Sharada Bhujangam is in praise of Sharada Devi at Sringeri on the banks of
Tungabhadra .......here is the story of how Sringeri Mutt was established.

Sri Shankara Bhagavatpada came to Sringeri looking to establish a peetha (seat of learning) for SharadambAl, where on the bank of the Tunga river, he saw an unusual sight. A cobra spread out its hood over a frog in labour pains, in order to protect the pregnant frog from the scorching sun. WonderStuck with the sanctity of the place, which could infuse love between natural adversaries, the MahAswAminAh chose Sringagiri to set up a Mutt. He spent there over 12 years of his all-too precious life of 32 years. This should give us an idea of the esteem the great Shankaracharya had for this holy spot. Sringeri also finds mention in Srimad Ramayana and upanishads as the abode of the great sage, Rishyashringa, after whom it is thus named. You can read more @ www.sringeri.net.

Always meditate on Lakshmi of golden hue (“hiranmayeem”) and renounce (“tyajaami”) the company (“aasrayam”) of the rich and mean (“heena”) people (“maanava”).

She bestows (“pradaam”) imperishable (“chira tara”) prosperity (“sampath). She is the daughter (“tanayaam”) of the ocean (“ambudhi”) of milk (“ksheera”). Who sports (“aalayaam”) on the Chest (“vakshastala”) of HARI. She is pure, white hued -- HARINI. Whose feet (“charana”) are soft like tender leaves (“kisalayaam”); She holds in Her Lotus-Hand(“kara kamala”) a lily of blue hue (“kuvalayaam”).

She is the supreme mother, worshipped (“poojithaam”) by Bhusuras - righteous people. Adorned (“aabharana dharaam”) with a garland of lotus (“abja”) and gem-studded ornaments (“manikya”). She delights (“vinodhineem”) in the music of songs and instruments. She is INDIRA, in the company (‘aamthaam”) of GIRIJA, the daughter of Himavan. Her face (“vadanaam”) resembles (“nibha”) the moon (“seetha kirana”). She is Chintamani, for those (“sritha”) who take refuge in Her. She is adorned with yellow (“peetha”) silk (“vasanaam”). She is the captivator(“kaanthaam”) of Vishnu, uncle (“maadhula”) of guruguha and the elegant one.

For song Kararavindena (mukundashtakam) of album: Chanting Rhythms Vol - 2 (krishna)2010-01-01 19:26:58
Bala Mukundashtakam, the octet on the child who gives immortal bliss this composition of unknown authorship.

Among the several forms of devotion in Hinduism, possibly one of the most easy is that of loving him as if he is your baby. This devotional hymn on Lord Krishna follows that approach. Lord Krishna is supposed to sleep on a leaf of a banyan tree and float on the surging waters of final deluge. He is supposed to hold his feet by his hand and put his toe in to his mouth. This hymn in its first stanza brings this image of Lord Krishna and then goes on to describe the adventures of this God Child as a baby. The first stanza of this great prayer also occurs in Sri Krishna Karnamrutha, a great book by a poet called Leela Shuka. It is not known whether he is the author of this prayer also.

For song Srichakra Raja Nilaye of album: Guru Shishya Parambara2009-12-31 11:56:11
In this very beautiful krithi GNB addresses her in her Sri Cakra form, asking for her benediction. This Sri Chakra form is Sri Lalita-Tripurasundari (Parvati) enthroned with her left foot upon the Sri Chakra, holding her traditional symbols, the sugarcane, bow, flower arrows, noose, and goad.

O mother, One who resides, in the king of cakrAs, the SrI Cakra (ShrIcakrarAjanilayE), who takes the form of the union of Shiva Shakti (ShivaShakti aikhya rUpiNi), please protect me.

She is one who is adorned beautifully with noose (pAShAngkuSha),
arrow, goad (bANEkshudaNDa) and is holding a stalk of sugarcane (pEShakalAdhari) - O Mother please protect me (pahi pahi).

She is one who destroyed the demons (ASharakula nAShini), was born in relation to Sri Vishnu as his sister (ShrISha kEShava sahajAmini) , who eulogizes through music her Lord's qualities ( IshaguNa gAnatOShiNi) and is one who dwells as the jIva within the five psychological states (annamaya, prANamaya, manOaya, vijnAnamaya & Anandamaya) (kOShAntara sthitapOshiNi).

Translation of the caranam.....from a friend :

Oh graceful Lord (ezhilE) who sports (viLaiyADum) around with (ODu) the mighty (uyar) spear (vEl)! You are the light/blaze/illumination (oLiyE) expounded (kUriDum) by the vEdAs (vEdangaL). You are secret (tuRavE) that is sought (virumbiDum) even by recluses (tuRaviyum) who have renounced everything. You (nI) are the divine one (tiruvE) who assumed the form (ninriTTa) of an ascetic (turaviyAi) in pazhani!

Dedicated to Sri Rajareshwari in her shodashi aspect (sixteen) is the ever-youthful sixteeen year old, Tripura Sundari.

Translated by TKGR :

O Merciful goddess! Sister of my Sri Rama! I have now known the way to salvation and have sought refuge in you alone. I have learned the path by following which Brahma, Indra and other godes and devotees have reached the coean of eternal Bliss and swum in it. I have found in you the Protector of the distressed and the fulfiller of the desires of those who have faith in you. You are the Mother who confers inestimable prosperity and wealth, who protects devotees, destroying the wilderness of their past Karma. I have now understood how great sages of the world, by the glory of your grace, have freed themselves from the bondage of worldliness and attained eternal bliss. That I have been privileged to witness your Friday worship is due to my past lives' merits. I have learned why great men consider your Japam alone throughout one's life the way to salvation.

translation from rshankar:

sArangan maruganE sAvEri pAlakanE
mohana kumAranE nAyaki nAyakanE

Oh nephew (maruganE) of the wielder of the bow SArngam (sArangan) [1], protector (pAlakanE) of sAvEri [2], a very attractive (mOhana) young boy (kumAranE), the Lord (nAyakanE) of (vaLLi)nAyaki!

sAramati maindanE sAma gAnalolanE
AvalAi viraint(d)oDi vandenE nin vasa(m)tAn

Oh son (maindanE) of pAravti (sAramati), one who delights (lOlanE) in the recitation/chanting (gAna) of sAma vEda! It is only (tAn) to be under your (nin) control (vasam) I have come (vandEnE) running (ODi) in haste (viraind(t)u) with great expectations/anticipation (AvalAi).

aruLAla bilahari kharahara priyanE
tirumurugA piraman tozhum bhairavi sutanE
perumai tanda naTTai uDaiya bhUpAlarE
varuvAi kAdal(l)Ahiri koNDEnE SrI murugA

Oh gracious (aruLAla) [3] one who loves (priyanE) the destroyer (hara) of the demon khara [4], oh divine (tiru) murugA, the son (sutanE) of pArvati (bhairavi) who is worshipped (tozhum) by the creator, brahmA (piraman) himself! Oh king (bhUpAlarE) who is famous (perumai tanda) for being upright/stand-up (nATTai uDaiya)! Please come (varuvAi) to me! Oh murugA, I am overcome (koNDEnE) by waves (lAhhiri) of desire/love (kAdal) for you.
FOOTNOTES
[1] As explained elsewhere, vishNu’s bow is the SArngam – so he should be SArngapANi, SARngan, etc, and sArangan is an incorrect corruption. Truth be told, sArangan/sArangapANi is Siva – sAranga is a deer, and Siva is the one who holds a deer in one of his hands (mAn mazhuvEndiya…)
[2] sAvEri raga is supposed to be very dear to sAma vEda chanters, is that true?
[3] There is an idol of vishnu at kanchipuram in a burrow (bilaM) and he is worshipped as bilahari. Hence 'bilahari aruLAla' would mean one who is blessed by vishnu...
[4] kharahara should be rAma/vishNu

For song Villinaiyottha of album: Bharathiyar Songs (s.sowmya)2009-12-19 01:41:06
There are three caranams to this kavadi cindu. Sowmya sings only the first.

From ravi shankar :--

In this, the king among poets tries to contrast the two elements of muruga that endear him to the tamizh people - his valor, and his romancing abilities. In this composition he alternately describes a valorous deed followed by description of a romantic act without skipping a beat (I wonder if what he is trying to convey is the idea that romance is not for faint hearted!).

caranam:
1: villinaiyotta puruvam vaLaittanai vElavA angOr verppunorungip-poDiyAnadu vElavA

With a mere flick of your eyebrows (puruvam vaLaittanai) shaped like a bow (villinai otta), Oh murugA (vElavA), you made the kraunca mountain (verpu) to crumble (norungi) into powder (poDi poDi Anadu)!

shollinait-tEnirk-kuzhaitturaippAL shiru vaLLiyaik-kaNDu shokkimaramena ninranai tenmalaik-kATTilE

You are the same person who, intoxicated (S(c)okki) on setting eyes on (kaNDu) the young (Siru) vaLLi who speaks (uraippAL) so sweetly as if her very words (Sollinai) were blended/mixed/soaked (kuzhaittu) in honey (tEnil), became a vEngai tree (maramena ninranai) in the hilly (malai) forests (kATTilE) down south (ten).

kallinaiyotta valiya manam koNDa pAdakan singan kaNNiraNDAyiram kAkkai k-kiraiyiTTa vElavA

Oh murugA (vElavA), you are the one who made bird-feed (irai) of the two (iraNDu) thousand (Ayiram) eyes (kaN) of the evil demon (pAdakan) simhamukhan (singan) whose heart (manam koNDa) was harder (valiya) than a boulder (kallinai otta), and offered it (iTTa) to a crow (kAkkaiku)

pallinaik-kATTi veN muttaip-pazhittiDum vaLLiyai oru pArppanak-kOlam dharittuk-karam toTTa vElavA

Oh brave murugA (vElavA), you are the same person who had to assume (dharittu) the role/guise (kOlam) of an old brahmin (pArpan) to marry (karam toTTa - literally means touched hand - but it symbolizes accepting 'her' hand in marriage) vaLLi who can put white (veN) pearls (muttinai) to shame (pazhittiDum) by showing (kATTi) her blindingly white teeth (pallinai) when she smiles.

For song Sri Vignarajam of album: Concert Series Vol I (nithyasree Mahadevan)2009-12-19 01:30:47
srI vighnarAjam bhajE - TRANSLATION -Thanks to Nishant.

I bow to Lord Ganesha-verily,I seek refuge in That Lord Who is the Remover of all obstacles.

(I pray to Him)Who is worshipped by Indra-the foremost among the Suras/Devas; Who is the Abode of Virtues; Who Grants boons to His devotees (who approach Him through recitation & penance-culminating in samadhi);Who is meditated upon by Devas,Rishis & other devotees; Who is the Cause of Destruction of poisonous evil (personified as a mad elephant)*

(I pray to Him)Who is bedecked with ornaments of gold- That Ever Vigilant Lord, Who is the Adornment of Kailasa (the Resplendent White Mountain); Who is the antithesis of Lust (KAma),arrogance (Mada), irrationality (MooDHa) and Who dispels Fear/Bhaya( as He is the All-Powerful, Courageoous One);Who is praised by saints like Sanaka, S'uka, Narada, Patanjali, Paraashara and Matanga; Who is the Embodiment of the Ultimate Truth and Bestower of Moksha/Salvation-verily I bow to that Lotus-Eyed Lord!

* Often Vaggeyakaras portray sin/PApa as a wild elephant-who is out of control.The Godhead represents a Counter-force to destroy this mad elephant of sin.Another instance is in 'Jagadaanandakaaraka' (Tyagaraja's first Pancharatna in Nata) wherein the last charana describes Sri Rama as 'PApagaja Nrisimha'or The Lion (pun on Vishnu's Narasimhaavataara also here!)Who destroys the 'mad elephant of sin'.

In fact as I translate this I find a very fine imagery centred around the Elephant (Matanga/Kunjara) in this kirtana.
Lord Ganesha is indeed 'Kunjara-mukha'; in the phrase Maatangakula kaala -the image of a wild elephant, representing sin and finally you find the term 'Maatanga'as the name of Maatanga muni.

TRANSLATION (Thanks to Dr P.P Narayanswamy)

Why the delay in showing kindness, Lord Krishna,
I worship your feet with folded palms.

Granting the desires of devotees who seek asylum in you,
You rest in Guruvayoor, oh Lord, remover of all sorrows.

Your chaste feet, lovingly caressed by the Lotus Maiden,
Whether I serve them with reverence from near
Or think of serving them from afar
To you, Whose greatness fills the universe,
This is a matter of indifference.

I have learned from the Sages who have extolled your exploits
That you, Hari, emerald like handsome Lord,
Are the refuge for the teeming humanity
Who live on the surf of the great ocean of suffering called life.

I see you in my heart, handsome as Cupid,
Your hair adorned with peacock feathers,
Your glances, a mixture of compassion and smile
Your chest showing Kousthabham and garlands of wild flowers
Your ankles adorned with jingling golden anklets.

Creator and protector of the worlds
Lord Padmanabha, who resides in Guruvayoor,
May it please you, without delay, with compassion,
To remove my illnesses like rheumatism
And bless me with health and prosperity.

Ramalinga Swamigal writes this profound viruttam praising the need for japa and chanting the panchAkshara, saying that even if we forget such things as one's mother, or one's child or any of the other transient things described in the lines following, one cannot not forget to chant the name of the Lord.

peTra tAi tanai mahan marandAlum

-- (even if) the child forgets the mother who bore him

piLLaiyaip-perum tAi marandAlum

--(even if) the mother forgets the child she bore

uTra dEhattai uyir marandAlum

--(even if) the jIvAtmaa forgets the body (in which it resides)

uyirai mEviya uDal marandAlum

--(even if) the body forgets the life pervading in it

kaTra nenjagam kalai marandAlum

--(even if) the heart forgets the arts (it learned)

kaNgaL ninru imapippadu marandAlum

--(even if) the eyes forget to blink

naTravaTravar uLLirundOngum namah-shivAyattai nAn maravEnE

--I will not forget 'nama shivaaya' (the panchaakSharaM) that is resonating in the hearts of Yogis (nal+thavaththavar = one who has done good penance).

For song Baavanaja Stuthi of album: Carnatic Vocal (live) Dr.m.balamuralikrishna2009-12-02 22:08:32
Meaning: by TK Govinda Rao:

How grand and imposing the wedding of SIta is! Praised by AnjanEya, this Hero of countless exploits, having the sun and the moon as His eyes, and possessing a frame of ravishing beauty is an unfailing Protector of His devotees and Bestower of prosperity and Beatitude, which is a part of His LIlas. He causes terror in the minds of RAkshasas. His calmness and composure reveal Him as one who has no more desires to be fulfilled. Sporting a radiant blue hue, He is the source of Bliss for the world. Resider of AyOdhya, He is the Prop of the entire world. A peerless warrior in battles, He is beyond the ken of men of arrogance and haughtiness. He is tall and courageous, reminding one of the great Mount MEru. He is the Hero figuring in the Scriptures. With an unmatched form, He is the mainstay of His devotees, whose sins He wipes out graciously. Celebrated by Lord Siva in song and music, He is the raft enabling deserving mortals to cross the ocean of SamsAra. That is the aim of His incarnation in the solar dyanasty, He whom TyAgarAja worships.

For song Baavanaja Stuthi of album: Carnatic Vocal (live) Dr.m.balamuralikrishna2009-12-02 22:08:06
Sita Kalyana vaibhogame......one of the most well-known, popularly sung especially made into a tradition in weddings invoking the blessings of the Lord, for the pair to be as fortunate as blessed as Rama-Sita were in their Divine auspicious marriage. This Thyagaraja Kriti composed in Raga Shankaraabharanam (Sankarabharanam). is known as Paavanaja Stuthi.

The song usually starts from the caranam ...."pavanaja stuti pAtra pAvana caritra ravi sOma vara nEtra ramaNIya gAtra" and loops onto the pallavi...."sItA kalyANa vaibhOgamE"

In the Sundara Kandam it is mentioned that ......When Lord Hanuman man spotted Seetha in Lanka, he so desired in his heart to see Rama and Sita to be united that he performs this Seetha Rama wedding in his heart and sings this song.

This song ...from a friend.........

I was sailing silently in my boat (of song) all alone
You came from nowhere to sail with me
In my tearful journey
When I thought I was all alone, going nowhere

Everything in my imagination
Which I though so illusive
Suddenly it is so believable, so real
You picked up my forlorn thought of love
Which I thought so meaningless

Why didn’t you join me
From the start of my song (of life)
Why did you come so late dear
My morning has come and gone
I missed you all those times
Oh my playmate
Missed you when I was swinging
At the dawn with the touch of the fresh rhythm of my youth

Did my tune bring you from your shore
To join me on my journey to nowhere
To take me to your shore

a very romantic song with a story. and really nicely done by Asha. A girl left a notebook to someone she worships for his signature. She opens the notebook and finds there is no signature :) The rest is her imagination.. and very sweet and so well treated...notice how same bengali word is used in different meaning in different context

All I asked for is your sign (sai) on my notebook (khatar pata)
instead you wrote on my eyelid (chokher pata)
we became friends (sai) for ever.........

Even if one were to be born (pirandAlum) as a lowly blade of grass (pullAi), wouldn’t it (the grass) be (anrO) delighted (magizhum) to alleviate (Ari) the hunger (paSi) of creatures (jananangaL) like deer (miruga) and others (Adi)? Even if one were to be born (pirandAlum) as a stinking piece of garlic (pUNDu), wouldn’t (anrO) the ancient riSi’s (pulattiyargaL) rejoice (magizhvar) when they used (koNDu) it to alleviate (tIrttu) some (sila) maladies (piNi)? Even if one were to be born as a stone (kallAi), wouldn’t it (anrO) offer (koDuttiDum) good men (nallavargaL) a vision (kATSi) of the deity by allowing them to place (koNDu) their feet (midi) on it [1]? Even if one were to appear (vandAlum) in the form of (uruvAga) a donkey (kazhudai) and bray (‘Ah’vena kattinAl), people will say (enbAr) that it is a desired (kaikaNDa) omen (sakunam).

My Lord (appanE), the reigning (adhipati) resident (vAzh) of cidambaram (tillai), the god (deivamE) who admits me into his good graces (ATkoLum) after he exterminates (aRuttu) the stains (mASu) of privation (allal enum) that tarnish me! The Lord (pati) who is worshipped/praised/eulogized (tudi) by wise men like sanaka and others (Adi)! Oh master (patiyE) of dance (naTana) who resides/revels (urai) in the love (anbil) of pArvati (SivakAmi)! You have given (tandu) me this (i) supposedly lofty human birth (piravi) without (illAmalE) any (ellAm) of these positive attributes, and have not only left (viTTu) me to languish (Enga) as I pine/yearn to be useful (and for you as well), but have stood (ninrAi) away (agala) from me.

How many (ettanai) more such births (piravi) are yet to come (varumO) for me – through how many more mothers (annaiyin) and fathers (tandaiyin)?

FOOTNOTE
[1] The concept here is that is not any odd stone, but a stone that forms a step in the front of a temple, standing on which devotees have their darSan. The same concept has been enunciated by Sri Kulasekhara Azhvaar in his pASuram ceDiyAya valvinaigal tIrkum neDumAlE, in which he writes of his yearning to be reborn as a step (paDi) in front of the sanctum sanctorum of the temple at tirupati

For song Sree Nathadi Guruguho Jayati of album: D K Pattamal2009-11-30 00:20:29
Packed tight with meaning, each word carries an message in an amazing song that says, Victory to Guruguha, celebrating the Divine. Dikshitar's great mind at work here, brought to us to life in the exquisite voice and style of D. K. Pattamal.

For song Sree Nathadi Guruguho Jayati of album: D K Pattamal2009-11-30 00:15:36
Here Diskshitar addresses Lord Guruguha, Karthikeya, referring to him Cidananda, and praying that the mind be always his service, engaged in constant meditation on this Lord adored by Maha Vishnu and all devas.

Dikshitar reveres this Lord saying He is the originator of different diversified forms of worlds. He manifests as five elements, the named and formed ones. He is like the mighty sun, destroying the darkness of ignorance, is the bestower of spiritual knowledge, and is son of the Maheshvara. He is the divine Kalpaka Vriksha for the afflicted ones, one who bears the sacred river like Mandakini, one who is adept at granting happiness to the heart of His devotees. May my Guru, My lord, bless me.

Dikshitar says Lord Guruguha is the substratum of this illusory world. He is to be invoked through the mantra beginning with Ka and ending with Ma, he who resides in the center of the Malini Chakra, he is one who is meditated upon as the swan representing the Ajapa Mantra, he is an expert at obliterating the effects of Maya devi, the illusion in this world. This Lord resides in my heart. He is one who enjoys the nectar of mellifluous music, one who graciously provides shelter and boons to Madhava and other seekers. He whose Brahmasvarupa , one whose beauty exceeds that of a million Manmathas (Cupids), one who shines as a beacon of the light on the hearts of devotees, one who vanquished the proud Sura and others, one whose place of abode is worshiped by kings of Mayamalava Gaula Desha and others. His effulgence shines, surrounded by Vishnu and other Devas. He is one who has expounded the real truth of Pranava to His father Mahesha.

Muthuthandavar was born at Sirkazhi. Afflicted by an incurable disease he was shunned by people. He was severely dejected and spent a night at the Sirkazhi temple, praying to the Lord. The next morning he was amazed to not find even a trace of the disease on his body. This was the answer to his prayer to the Lord. Another miracle was that the grace of the Lord did not stop there. Muthuthandavar was Divinely blessed, songs poured out of him from deep within as he penned them in praise of the Lord. His singing introduced the style of common singing called keertanam. A famous piece, made even more famous by MMI is Muthuthandava's "Sevikka vendum Ayya" in the raga - AandhOlika

O Lord, kindly forgive all the wrong acts and omissions I have committed,

Glory to you, Mahadeva Sambho, praise be to Siva who is the eternal ocean of kindness and compassion and the cause of all happiness.

There is an urgency in the plea to the Lord as Thyagaraja says in these times of Kali-yuga men have fallen prey to vices and forsaken bhakthi for paths of pleasure and material pursuits. O Lord, now is the time to appear and redeem floundering and lost souls, to protect dharma.

For song Sri Kaantimathim (hemavathi) of album: M S S - Guru Guha Vani - Vol. 22009-11-10 02:32:59

DIkshithar gives the ultimate salute to the Goddess by saying "she has the form("AkAra") of the hrIm bIja mantra." Just like Om (the father), hrIm is yet another powerful mantra and is considered the mother of all sounds on earth. hrIm is also the bIja mantra of the supreme sahasrAra chakra (the thousand petalled lotus) at the top of the brain in the astral body. By reciting the hrIm mantra and proper meditation, souls attain kaivalyam. And DIkshithar seems to be referring to the sahasrAra chakra when he refers to the dEvi as "She resides in the lustrous ("shobhA") golden ("hiranya") palace ("sadanAm") filled ("maya") with gems ("maNi")".

DIkshithar sings "She is praised and worshipped ("vinuthAm") by Indra ("pAkashAsana") and other ("aadi") Gods ("dEvAs"). She is worshipped ("nutha") by ParashurAma and is the daughter ("suthAm") of the God of the mountains ("hima shaila").".......................from Sai

For song Sri Kaantimathim (hemavathi) of album: M S S - Guru Guha Vani - Vol. 22009-11-10 02:27:46
Sri Kanthimathi or Sri Gandhimathi Ambal is Sankara's perpetually young consort "yuvateem" - this young Divine mother (of guru guha) is decked with a diamond crown and her locks are adorned with Rakkadi. Nose ornaments and Bullakku enhances the charm of her face, while a garland of nine gems adorn her bossom. She wears a ornamental Silambu on her ankles. A parrot is perched on her right hand and with her left arm she is seen to be holding a lotus. Her forehead is embellished with a circle of vermilion.

(No Regrets Have I)
A rendering of the Tamil
composition of C. Rajagopalachari
No regrets have I
My lord,
None.
Lord of the Written Word,
My light, my sight,
My very eyes
No regrets,
None.
Though you stand
Where I behold you not
My light, my very eyes,
Protector of all earthlings
I know you sustain me
Lord of the Venkata Hill so pure
You meet my hunger, my thirst
My hope, my prayer
You keep me from harm,
Lord of the Sparkling Gems,
I need naught else
Father of the Seven Hills,
Naught else.

* * *

You stand — do you not? —
Veiled by a screen
Only the learned can part
For they are the learned
Which I am not
But no, no regrets have I.
Crowning this hill
You stand as rock
Giver of Boons
Immutable God
Father to these hills
No regrets have I
Govinda !

* * *

In this benighted Age of ours
Lord —
The worst of all the Four —
You have entered
The sanctum
A shaft of granite
Where though I see you not
No regrets have I.
Boulder of strength
With the Ocean,
Heaving on your breast,
Of the purest compassion —
My Mother,
My very own, who grants
Anything I ask of her
Can I possibly have regrets?
The two of you, I know,
Stand there for me
Eternally
No regrets have I my Govinda
None, none whatsoever
Govinda! Govinda!
Govinda! Govinda!

For song Mohanarama of album: Maharajapuram Santhanam Vol 12009-10-28 05:09:18
Thyagarajar envisions the arresting beauty of Sri Rama, His Divinity, the foremost of all Lords, whose face lights up the entire universe and defeats the poetic beauty of the moon on a dark night......In his mAnusha Janma he has melted the hearts of all celestial beings gandharvas, apsaras kimpurushas, Brahma, Indra, Surya, Candra and others with his Divine grace.........Thyagaraja in the sweetest and most mesmerizing of tunes and words says he is enthralled by His beauty, has fallen in love with the Lord, and coaxes this captivating Lord earnestly...please speak to me..... Mohana Rama, O captivating Lord,....jita soma....defeating the beauty of the moon....mudduga palkumA...please speak to me in your charming way........JUST BEAUTIFUL from start to finish - all of the 35 plus minutes...and a reason to live on this planet - just to hear this rendition.

For song Mohanarama of album: Trinity - Hyderabad Brothers2009-10-28 03:59:36
Another DIVINE presentation - Santhanam, MMI, and here, the Hyderabad Brothers reign supreme in their individual renditions - all one has to do is sit back -- let the Divine lyrics, the bhakthi in the music, tune, rhythm seep into you, into your very soul, like falling rain, drenching you slowly but surely with the amazing beauty and depth of this blissful song and transporting you to heights, the world where Sri Rama walked - making not just all celestials melt with love, transfixed by his Divine grace, but also made the humble Sri Thyagaraja fall in love with the Lord. Such is the power and attraction of this piece, it leaves you bereft of words to adequately describe the experience.

For song Mohana Rama of album: Swara Sudha2009-10-28 02:18:21
Outstanding job by Prashant, the violinist as well, on this great Ode to Sri Rama, his extraordinary beauty, his Divinity, his munificence, his benediction to his bhaktas. The Lord, who in his Manusha janma, not only captivated the entire celestial beings, all the gandharvas apsaras, kinnara, kimpurusha, vidyAdhara, Indra, brahmA, Surya, Candra and others, - he has enthralled the humble devotee Sri Thyagaraja making him so drawn to him that he composed this plea in the most attractive of ragas - Mohanam .... O Rama, please can you speak to me charmingly as you have done to others....?

For song Pariyachakama Rama of album: Maharajapuram Santhanam Vol 12009-10-28 01:41:13
ParihAsam - means to make fun of - Here Thayagaraja asks the Lord, do you think I make fun of you....all this singing day and night, only of you, praising you, describing you, inviting you, scolding you....all my singing arises from my own incapacity, my fears, my doubts, and my grief in this world at not being close to you....do you think all this is pariyacakama....parihAsam...just to make fun of you? Thyagaraja then laments as he narrates, when Ma Draupadi in her grief, called out to you, O noble Lord of Dwaraka, please save me and sought your refuge....when Vibhisana pleaded with you unable to bear the harshness of Ravana, when Prahlada called out to you to become his savior .......in all these circumstances these bhaktas received your munificence and your shelter. Why then are this poor Thyagaraja's words not heeded, why are these soulful pleadings seen as parihAsam ?

For song Mohanarama of album: Maharajapuram Santhanam Vol 12009-10-28 00:59:14
Never ceases to amaze - this transcendental piece by Sri Santhanam is just mind-tranquilizing. The beauty of his singing ! Such is the beauty of Sri Rama as penned and visualized by Sri Thyagarajar.

For song Sri Raja Mathangi S Gayathri of album: Doraiswamy Iyengar At Music Academy-veen2009-10-15 01:05:20
.........rAja mAthangi or rAja shyAmaLa is a specific term used only to refer to Goddess mInAkSi. She is essentially a shakti of the shrIkula and was born from lalitAmbika. It is said that when sage matanga was successful in his penance, Goddess mInAkSi appeared before him and asked what boon he wanted. He wished for Her to be born as his daughter. She was called as Laghu shyAmaLa. It is said that 34 daughters were born to Laghu shyAmaLa and these are the 34 matanginis that we know of(some names I know are sangIta, sphOtika, niralAmbA, samvEdini, hasanti etc). Since all these matanginis were born off Her, Goddess minAkSi is the head/queen of all of them and hence She is called as "rAja mAthangi"...............from sreeKrishna...

aap na aye likh nahin bheje.
ban padi lalacavana ki
ye do naina kaha nahin manae
nadiya barse jaise savan ki

But you did not come. Nor did you send a note why. I have been hit by the arrows of desire and obsession for you. These two eyes of mine do not listen - they simply flow like the gushing waters of the river in the savan month of rain.

ka karun kachhu nahin basa mero
paankh nahin ud jawana ke
mira kahe prabhu kaba re miloge
ceri bhayi hun teri daman ki

What should I do now? There is nothing left for me. I cannot come flying to you as I have no wings. Mira asks the Lord.. when are we to meet, I am placing myself at your bidding.

Some oral history.

Kaavadi Chindu/Sindhu are native Tamil songs of folk-type popularized by the paadhai yaatrai group from chettinadu area and madurai area, particularly the former.

On these yaatrai, devotees take it upon themselves to walk barefoot all the way from kaaraikudi, devakottai, madurai and their nearby places to pazhani during the month of Jan.,particularly in month of thai for thaifpoosam. A special feature is the purposeful dedication, the Divinity in the mission, the bonding between people in brotherhood, friendship and all sorts of noble human qualities exhibited throughout in theyaatrai. A very rich business man/woman and an ordinary daily wages man/woman walk together, help together, sleep on roadside. One has to see the hospitality of the wayside village people - pure, geniune, no monetary motive except small vendors. The yaatrai lasts 4-6 days. Started in small groups, the yaatrai is joined by other groups along the way. Elderly and lead singers in the group sing songs along the way in praise of Lord murugan. Many songs will be in kaavadi sindhu. Some people even carry kaavadi - like pazha(fruit) kaavadi, panneer kaavadi etc with them all the way as offerings to the Lord (a kind of justice to these songs). This yaatrai has been a long tradition for hundreds of years. Although started in the Chettinad/Madurai areas, this tradition has spread to other rural areas.

Song composed by Annamacharya ---

P : chAladA hari nAma smara Namrutamu tamaku
chAladA hita vaina chavu lella nosaga

Remembering and chanting the name of Sri Hari bestows the nectar of happiness. Is it not enough for you ?

C : idi yokaTi hari nAma mintaina chAladA

Hari's name liberates us from the bondage of the cycle of births and deaths.
Is it not enough? Keeping Sri Hari's name in mind always relieves you from the agony of a thousand hells. Is it not enough?

C :prabhu vEnkatESu keertana mokaTi chAladA

For song Sambho Mahadeva of album: Trinity - T.v.sankaranarayanan2009-10-10 00:55:11
T. V Sankaranarayan scales lofty heights with this song....his singing is as exultory as the song itself! His neraval on 'paramdayakara' reflects the plea straight from Thyagaraja's heart.

This krithi celebrating Mahadeva - Lord of all the Lords, Sri Thyagaraja hails victory to the great Lord, the cause of all auspiciousness Sambho Sankara.....Thyagaraja prays asking for his grace, to bestow on him just a little - from his infinite reservoir of mercy.

Caranam :
O Lord of supreme mercy ( parama dayakara) holding the deer in his hands (mrigadhara), one who has captured Mother Ganga in his hair (gangadhara), upholder and preserver of the world, decorated with the serpent wrapped around this throat (dharini dhara bhusana) - the one who dwells deep in the heart of this Thyagaraja. He is the Lord revered by all devas, one whose feet are illuminated by gems in the crowns of all celestials who prostrate before him (nirajita mani).....O,.Sundaresha, noble resident of kOvur .. The Lord of kailAsa who is beyond everything.....who rescues the devotees from the Ocean of Worldly Existence....... Deign to bestow on me devotion to Your Lotus Feet.

For song Varasikhi Vahana of album: Suswara Mala2009-10-09 08:57:29
A rare song by Thyagaraja on Murugan -- vara Sikhi vAhana vArija lOcana
kuru Samtanujita kusuma sarAyuta..........the lotus eyed Lord whose vahana is the peacock, one whose beauty and splendor surpasses a myriad manmathas.....To this Lord, Thyagaraja offers his obeisances and asks for his blessings. A beautiful praise of the Lord follows - as one whose feet are revered by Brahma residing on the lotus, Indra, moving about in the clouds as vahanam, he is one praised by all celestials.....this Kumara, who is the destroyer of demons, is the august son of Mother Parvati, proud daughter of the mountains Himavan, is the nephew of Sri Raghuvira and is gracious as he is eternally generous to all his devotees.

For song Dharshanamu of album: Legenda - Sri Chittoor Subramaniam Pillai2009-10-09 08:37:27
Thyagaraja came to take darshan of Lord Siva at the temple.

Thyagaraja asks humbly of the Lord, am I qualified, am I deserving to have your darshan? Forgive me for becoming distracted and engrossed with external things such as the beautiful gopuram/spire on the temple, the grand columns, the heavenly vahanas in the various carvings and sculptures depicting the scenes, dances by devadasis in service before the Lord, illumined by rows of lights.

Thyagaraja says, I have performed pradakshina sixteen times but my heart was not pure as my mind was engaged in maligning others, desiring other women. I did not with purity and focus chant the great Siva nama, Siva Siva...........Is it possible to stay focused on the your golden form ? Deeply embed this wonderful form in my mind and situate it like a lotus in my heart so that I can see you always. Worshiping the holy feet of the Lord, Thyagaraja asks humbly - am I deserving enough to behold this sight of you, dear Lord?

Thyagaraja pays rich tribute to Mahadeva here as he asks for his blessings.

dEvEsha pitAmaha mRigya shamAdi guNAbharaNa gaurI ramanNa............Lord of the Devas (Devesha - dev + isha), the original great ancestor (pitamaha), the one who is sought by all (mrigya), the one on whom tranquility and the six virtues repose like Abharnams or jewels (shamadi gunabharnam), the beloved Lord of Gauri (Gauri ramana)

[six virtues are : sadguna - control of mind; dama - control of body; titiksa - a stoical tolerance; samadhana - equanimity and sympathy; uparati - renounced mind; shraddha - situated in strict adherence to shastras]

For song Siva Pahimam of album: Carnatic Vocal Madurai Somu2009-10-08 21:11:36
Addressing sivE - the spouse of sivA - another name for Lalitambike Tripurasundari - Thyagaraja offers his obeisances while singing her glory.... Mother Katyayini, residing at Thiruvaryur, on the banks of Kaveri....Thyagaraja is full of praise for this Divine Mother, who graces ever so kindly everyone who seeks her mercy, with her boons and blessings. She is known as Mother Dharma saMvardhani - the beautiful name of Ma PArvati at tiruvaiyAru kSEtra - meaning one who upholds righteousness. She manifests as Maya, illusion in this world, for Lord Vishnu. Thyagaraja prays for her to grant auspicious boons with affection so that he may have the pleasure of relishing this grace. She is Characharamayi - Mother of all sentient and non-sentient beings. Her beauty, with the green parrot in her hand, makes Thyagaraja beg that she not look askance at him. That she bestow her mercy on this humble poet-singer.


Holding the green parrot in Your Lotus hand, You should not look at me apathetically.
Please protect me quickly.

Please shed your mercy on this Tulsidas and grant the boon of bhakti into my heart.

feet as you bathe in the Yamuna. .If I were a nightingale, I would sing sweetly, while you wander in the woods and pastures grazing the cattle.

Where can I go, dear Madhav, where can I go to find you.

If you are the pearl, then I am the thread that passes through it, If you are the gold, then I am the fortunate suhagan who wears that auspicious gold. I am your eternal slave, O Lord of Braij vasis.

For song Asaindadum of album: Madhura Madhura2009-09-05 02:46:26
I just realized the prelude for this song is the eager anticipation and longing of the Gopis, in waiting, assembled with Radha for the arrival of Krishna. So the first ecstatic news that he had arrived on the ras-lila grounds was heralded by the swaying dance of the peacocks. The ecstasy then continues with the coming of music, spell-binding melodies wafting from the flute and subsequently, the enchanting dance itself, the amazing sight of dancing Krishna as he mingled with each of the Gopis with Radha singing into the night.

One whose lotus-feet are worshiped by sages Nidhagha, Dattatreya, Kapila, Vamadeva, Vyasa and Shukha. The one who expertly bears the mudras of fearlessness and boon-bestowal. The one dear to devotees. The one whose abode is this universe composed of the movable and non-moveable. The one who rides on a bull and is worshiped by Devas and Asuras alike.The one surrounded by Vishnu - enemy of Mura, and the entire group of Devas. The primordial being.

For song Nanati Baduku of album: 50 Glorious Classical Years2009-08-19 03:16:25
One of Annamaya's masterpieces. MSS delivers it in a Divine mood................ Meaning : P:This day to day (nAnATi) life (batuku) is a drama (nATakamu). What is to not seen clearly (kAnaka kannadi exactly means something which is seen yet not seen; for instance an object at a far off distance) is liberation/salvation (kaivalyamu).......... C1:To be born (puTTuTayu) is truth (nijamu), to die (pOvuTayu literal meaning is to go; to leave) is truth. All the work (pani) in between these two (naTTanaDimi) is a drama. That which is right in front (yeTTa neduTagaladI) is the world (prapaNcamu). That which is the ultimate last (kaTTakaDapaTidi) is liberation......... C2:To partake/relish (kuDicEdi) rice/food (annamu), to wrap around (cuTTeDidi) a cloth/saree (kOka), this conjured-in-the-middle (naDamantrapu) work (pani) is a drama. When one crosses beyond (gaDidATinapuDE) the above mentioned dual duties (vubhayakarmulu) only then there is liberation........... C3:There is no break (tegadu literally means it doesn't cut/snap like for instance to say a rope doesn't cut) to sin (pApamu). There is never completion (tIradu) to good/holiness (puNyamu). All this laughing (and also laughable) (nagi nagi) time (kAlamu) is a drama. Above (yeguvane literally means at a higher place) there is only ONE VenkaTEShvara. That which is even beyond (mIdidi means one which is above; here in percepetion) the sky (gaganamu) is liberation.

For song Sri Abhayamba of album: Trinity - K Jayaraman2009-08-13 15:44:36
The group of ten k.rtis, popularly known as abhayAmbA vibhakti k.rtis, was composed by muttusvAmi dIkSitar on Goddess abhayAmba, the consort of Lord mAyUranAtha of the famous temple at Mayavaram (currently known by the name mayilADuttuRai)...................http://www.carnatica.net/special/abhayamba0.htm

For song Sri Abhayamba of album: Trinity - K Jayaraman2009-08-13 15:43:31
Abhayamba.........THE LEGEND :--- The legend goes that king dakSa did not invite his daughter sati (pArvati) and his son-in-law shiva to the sacrifice he was to perform. Even though shiva instructed his consort not to attend the sacrifice conducted by her father, sati went to the venue, only to find that she was completely ignored and insulted. Angered by the acts of dakSa, Lord shiva sent vIrabhadra, a minor deity, to desecrate the sacrifice. During this process, an innocent peahen got injured. Meanwhile, sati repented her action of disobeying her husband and she entered the fire. The peahen that was injured ran toward sati and took shelter. At the time of entering the fire, sati was thinking of the peahen to which she gave refuge, so in the next birth she took the form of a peahen and came to this same location. She conducted severe penance for years. She bathed in the celestial waters of the river kAvEri and served the Lord as a peacock (mayUra, shikhaNDi). Lord shiva was immensely pleased, and became united with her. Assuming the shape of a peacock, shiva danced the famous gauri tANDavam for her. Hence the name mayUranAtha, and the town's name, mayil-ADu-tuRai. The place is also known by the names sudhAvanam, shikhaNDipuram, brahmapuram and brahmavanam. The stala v.rkSam (sacred tree of the location) is Mango tree and the saying goes that when sati conducted penance in the form of a peahen, it consumed the leaves of a mango tree. The Goddess in this temple is known as abhayAmba, since she gave refuge (abhayam) to the peahen. Also, She is known by the names abhayapradAmba, abhayAmbika, a~njalanAyaki, and a~njali.

The series starts off with a kIrtanam in rAgam malahari, on Lord gaNEsha. This is followed by prayers to Goddess sarasvati (rAgam asavEri), Lord shiva of mahAbalagiri (shrine adjacent to the cAmuNDEshvari temple on the same hill) (rAgam sAra"nga), then a prayer to Lord viSNu (rAgam kIravANi), one to guru (rAgam puSpalata), and finally the sixth one to Lord A~njaneya (rAgam ce~ncuruTTi). In each of them he prays to the particular deity to give him strength and energy, and seeks their blessings for the success of the project of the 108 songs he is attempting to compose........................"

For song Yemayya Rama of album: Ramabhakthi Samrajyam2009-08-03 19:39:33
Some interesting background info.................... Bhakta Ramadasa is regarded as one of the greatest devotees of Lord Rama. He is one of the greatest lyricists (also known as Vaggeyakaras) in Telugu. His kirtanas are full of devotion, surrender and supplication to the Lord. When he was jailed on charges of misusing the funds of the Government to construct a temple for Lord Rama, his unswerving faith on the Lord to be his savior resulted in changing the mind of the King and history has recorded that Lord Rama repaid the amount payable by Bhakta Ramadas. The King immediately ordered the release Ramadas from jail. In this compostion, Bhakta Ramadas claims that Lord Rama could not be recognized by his unfortunate contemporaries who looked at Him from their own perceptions instead of realizing that he was the true Lord.

For song Nam Japan of album: Live At Russia Vol 12009-07-21 16:56:59
O Mind ! Why have you stopped taking the name of the Lord? You have not given up your anger and indignation, you have not given up speaking falsehood, why have you given up speaking the truth - present in the Lord's name? In this illusory world where the mind falls prey to greed, why have you obscured the reality present in the words about the Lord. In saving and carefully guarding your pennies you have forgotten and given up something far more precious - crown jewels - the mindfulness that brings peace and happiness you have forgotten. The poet says, instead of renouncing attachments to the body, giving in to the feeble mind and worldly wealth by placing all faiith in the Lord, why have you given up naam japa - chanting in everyday life ?

For song Madhurashtakam(sanskrit) of album: Sri Venkateswara (balaji)pancharatnamala Vol-32009-07-15 22:46:32
The devotional hymn "Madhurashtakam" of Sripad Vallabhacarya, a bhakti-poet-saint of the Pustii Marga, was created to lead the devotee into the Path of Grace, which involves a constant love-filled devotion to Krishna by various acts of homage, such as singing (kirtana), remembering (smarana), conceptualizing and beholding (darshana) a beatific image of the deity upon singing of the Madhurashtakam, and offering of services (seva). These acts enable the devotee to enter into the divine presence of Sri Krishna and to experience the Lord’s real essence (svarupa) which are in fact, succinctly laid down by the Madhurashtakam. Hence, Madhurashtakam plays an instrumental role in the realization of the Lord.

For song Nagendra Haraya (siva Panchakshara Stotram) of album: Kashi Rameshwaram Suprabhatam2009-07-11 21:00:00
Panchakshara, NA-MA-SHI-VA-YA...........from Rajaputhran's Shiva Panchakshara............Panchakshara, the supreme mantra of the shaivites, is referred as the Holy Five Syllables, or in English "Homage to Lord Shiva". In the entire state of Tamilnadu, this Panchakshara has a special connotation. It is extolled as the Tirumoolar Tirumantiram. He extols the word NAMASHIVAYA or the the five (pancha) sacred syllables NA MA SHI VA YA thus: NA=The concealing grace ("waiting" for the individual to mature). MA=The three MALAS (chains) Anava (primal ignorance/ego), Karma (cause & effect) and Maya (illusory or temporal nature of existence). SHI=Siva/Shiva VA=The revealing grace (spiritual awakening). YA=The soul (Jivatma) Still dissatisfied, Tirumoolar goes one step further and give this explanation: "His feet are the letter Na. His navel is the letter Ma. His shoulders are the letter Shi. His mouth, the letter Va. His radiant cranial center aloft is Ya. Thus is the five-lettered form of Siva." While meditating it can be chanted as SHI VA YA NA MA without in any way lessening the importance of the Panchakshara. This five letter mantra stands in the middle of the Vedas, the shata rudriyyam or rudra suktam. The Vedaha Samhita, hails Lord Shiva, as the Lord of the three worlds, and salutes him as "namah: shivaya cha shivataraya cha" The subtle meaning of this supreme mantra of all shaivaites is that "By negating my ahankara ( my ego), I am realizing that everything in me is HIS". Namaha = not mine. Shivaya = ( that which ) belongs to Shiva.

For song Ksherabdi Kannike of album: Purandaradasar Krithis - Maharajapuram Santhanam2009-07-10 11:18:25
There is an interesting story behind this song....Purandhara dasa addresses this song to Mahalakshmi who had left the residence of the Lord's heart and decided to take her abode at Tirupati..................Bhrigu Maharishi once visited Lord Narayana while he was resting with his consort (Maha Lakshmi). Since the Lord was resting, he did not pay attention to the Maharishi's arrival. This slighted the Maharishi and provoked him to kick the Lord in the chest. At that moment the Lord arose and touched the Rishi's feet and begged forgiveness. The Lord specifically apologized for his hard chest causing pain to the Rishi's tender foot. Mollified at his action and overcome with shame by the Lord's concern for him (despite kicking the Lord), Bhrigu Maharishi became a chastened man. Mahalaskhmi Thayar was aghast that the Lord should show such respect for one who has insulted him. This feeling was reinforced by the arrival of Narada who pointed out to Thayar that not only the Lord but also her residence (the Lord's heart) had been insulted. This infuriated Mahalakshmi Thayar further and she resolved to leave Vaikuntam. The Lord was pained by her departure and incarnated as Lord Srinivasar to bring back his consort to Vaikuntam. Then, the great occasion followed, celebrated as a grand Srinivasa Kalyanam -- depicted in a dance drama by Vempati Chinnasatyam, where the details of the Srinivasa Kalyanam where the Lord known as Sri Venkateswara weds Mahalakshmi, known as Sri Padmavathi, are beautifully captured..............this fascinating story is recounted in a series of beautiful pictures -- 51 in all --- at this site........www.tirumala.org/maintemple_kalyanamstart.htm

Dedicated to Mata Kali................here's something on Panditji.......For Pandit Jasraj the great vocalist, his great devotion to Goddess Kali was reinforced by an incident which happened when he was the court singer to Maharaja Jaywant Singh, erstwhile Indian ruler in the state of Sanand. As he described his experience in the Times of India. "One day, while at Sanand, my brother Pt Pratap Narayan lost his voice. No amount of tests, visits to doctors, or medicines helped him. He could not sing, and was barely able to talk in a hoarse whisper. This condition continued for more than a year, until one day the Maharaja, a great Kalimata devotee, announced that Goddess Kali would return his voice that night. We were sceptical, but he asked us to have faith and meet him in the palace temple at midnight. At midnight, he asked my brother to sing, and he, to our great pleasant surprise sang. That night he sang from midnight to 6 a.m. I did not know what I am to make of this miracle, and I am sure that others also would not be able to explain this grand miracle."...............from the Spectrum, 2002.

Alamelu is grace personified, with her charming gait, the sweet sounds emanating from her foot adornments as she walks up, her anklets gleaming and radiant. As she begins the dance, her tender feet tap to the ring of her ankle bells as she keeps rhythm immaculately. Her movements bring much pleasure to the Lord.

For song Alarulu of album: Nritya Maadhuri2009-07-06 20:25:34
This beautiful song is set to dance ----dedicated to Sri Padmavathi, the consort of Sri Venkatagiri -- popularly known as Alamelu Mangai (Alarmel Mangai in Tamil) whose benediction is considered important before approaching Lord Venkatesha........It is said that Annamaya who composed many songs on the Lord of Tirumala hills, once set forth on a pilgrimage to Tirumala, before which he had Darshan of Alamelu Manga ; soon after which he sang in her praise a set of 100 poems (Alamelu Manga Shatakamu). The main temple to Sri Alamelu is situated at Thiruchanoor, also known as Alamelu-Mangapuram, a village in the Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh, lying at a distance of about 5 km from the temple-town of Tirupati. Tradition dictates that every pilgrim to Tirupati must offer obeisance at this temple before proceeding to the temple at Tirupati.

For song Bhavamu Lona of album: 50 Glorious Classical Years2009-07-06 20:02:24
In this beautiful song, Annamaya urges his mind/heart that all thought (bhavamulona) and action should be immersed in Govinda, taking his name at all times. Hari has taken many incarnations and encompasses all the devatas within him ( hari yavatAramulE akhila dEvatalu ). Hari pervades the entire universe ( hari lOnivE brahmAnDabulu ). Therefore taking the various names of Hari and chanting the mantra, Hari Hari ....is appropriate. Vishnu is the cause of all, the soul of the universe and is praised by the Vedas, so my mind - search for Vishnu. Vishnu is Achyuta, one who is true and detached, the primeval Lord who resides atop the Venkatadri hills....O my mind, surrender to this Lord Atchyuta ( atchyuta saraNanavO manasa )

For song Natanala Bhramayaku of album: 50 Glorious Classical Years2009-07-06 16:22:48
A deeply philosophical song on Life...and Maya...everything is bhramAm...we have heard this theme so many times in many song ...here Annamaya says worldly pursuits and attendant desires, pleasure and pain are all illusory and temporary......only Hari, as Sri Venkatesa is permanent and his grace is the permanent saving factor.........

For song Bhavayami Gopalabalam of album: Hare Rama Hare Krishna Vol-22009-07-06 16:16:03

For song Cheri Yasodhaku of album: Hare Rama Hare Krishna Vol-22009-07-06 16:13:29
Annamaya pays homage to Yasoda's child, the father of Brahma, the one who is resplendant and invigorating like the Sun and the moon....the ultimate and the origin for all devatas. He is the great one who mesmerizes all and is Sri Venkatesa....surrender to this ultimate Lord.

For song Tolliyunu of album: Devi Stothra Maala2009-07-06 16:05:02
Another song with great beauty and imagery, the Divine infant BalaGopala floating on the cradle of an Alai leaf (banyan leaf) on the ocean, gently rocked to and fro by the arms of Mother Kaveri as she flows into the ocean. This divine child is none other than Sri Ranga,the lotus-born, looking beautiful, comforted by the song of of the rocking motion of the waves. This child Sri Ranga is Lord Venkatesa himself one is adorned by the Vedas as garlands and Ananta-Sesha as his swing, with Sri Devi his consort by his side.

For song Tiruv-adi Charanam of album: Live In Singapore Vol 22009-07-05 21:42:06
Language is not enough to express......the sheer pleasure derived from listening to the song itself, the amazing controlled performance by Unni.........this song was made popular by Musiri...MMI's emotional rendition.... as well as KVN the great,and then MSS Ammal, more recently, Sanjay -- among a host of others -- who stand out in their excellent renditions.............the neraval at ..."aDuttu vanda ennai taLLalAgAdu hara-harAvenru ..." is just breathtaking, not to mention the waves of feeling it produces...it is a plea straight from the heart that cuts to the quick.......The meaning of this caranam line goes something like ---- (I have come believing in and searching for Your sacred feet to find shelter -- pallavi).......you can’t ignore me when I have come for your refuge. Isn’t it enough to say hara hara ? ---- Shiva is referred to as ‘hara’ or ‘haran’

For song O Ranga Sai - Kambodhi - Adi of album: Kshetra Maala2009-07-04 06:44:19
Thanks to Ganesh for the bhakti-inspiring background details.......Thyagaraja says O Ranga Saayi.....when I call you - can you not come saying .."O" --- as in "O - I am coming "- very charmingly put..........O ranga SAyi pilicitE O-anucu rA rAdA ........O Lord reclining (SAyi) in ranga vimAna ! When I call (pilicitE) You, can’t (rAdA) You come (rA) responding (anucu) ‘O’ (Oyanucu)?

For song Theratiyakarada-goulipantu-adi of album: Kshetra Maala2009-07-03 23:14:54
Beautiful song so beautifully sung...you can hear the pleading in the pallavi ---theratiyaka rada ---- to Venkata Ramana --- beautiful addition by Ganesh on the folk-lore regarding the context of this song. This story appeals far more vividly to the imagination as it describes Thyagaraja's pure and unswerving bhakti ......When will this curtain come down? O Lord, I have come all the way to have Your Darshan and You are behind a curtain! Will You not please make the curtain fall so that I can see You?” and the Lord's response in allowing the curtains to drop, allowing Tyagaraja to have the darshan of Venkateswara. .............. When one hears the analysis from scholars given as "O Venkata Ramana, please remove the curtain of Maya from my mind so that I can see you without any distortions......."....the original story seems to remain in mind.

For song Vinayakuni - Madhyamavati -adi of album: Kshetra Maala2009-07-03 22:57:26

Oh mind, chant the name of Krishna the Lord of Yadavas. He is delightful in the company of the Vraja Gopis. He exhibited many leelas (divine sport) astoundingly to the Vraja cowherd boys. He appeared in the guise of an ordinary human . His inumerable acts in various forms are dramatic. He is the embodiment of the true nature of the hearts of supreme Yogis. He is the embodiment of Omkara, just like water bearing clouds contain water.

Mother Sita's plea to Lord Rama...................Meaning from rshankar.................this composition reflects sItA's mental anguish when rAma goes to take leave of her, and asks her to take good care of his mothers.............P: eppaDi manam tuNindadO sAmi vanam pOi varugirEn enrAl idai ErkkumO bhUmi.............. My lord (sAmI/svAmi)! How (eppaDi) did you/your mind (manam) become so daring (tuNiandadO)? How can this earth (bhUmi) accept (ErkumO) this (idai) statement of yours that (enrAl) you are leaving (pOi varugirEn)[1] for the forest (vanam) without me?.............. A: eppirappilum piriya viDEn enru kai toTTIrE EzhaiyAna sItaiyai naTTATrilE viTTIrE.............. Did you not marry me (kai toTTIrE – literally, touched my hand) after promising me that you will not let us (vidEn enru) be apart (piriya), not just in this life, but in any life (eppirappilum)? But now, it seems as if you are abandoning (viTTIrE) this hapless woman (EzhaiAna) sItA (sItaiyai) in the middle (naTTu) of an ocean (ATrilE)............

dEvarIr meLLLa[3] vArtaiyAl kollAmal kolla irumbu manadu uNDAccudallavO ennai viTTup-pOghirEn enru sholla............. You claimed that your word, once given was as unbreakable as a vow, but, unfortunately, am I correct in thinking that your words/speech (shollal) have become (AccudO) as easy to break (murittAr) like (pOlE) sugarcane (karumbu)? Have (AccudO) the words (shol) that you uttered (shonna) claiming that you will not be separated (piriyEn) from me even by mistake (oru kAlum) become a lie (poi)? Even after beseeching (varundi varundi) you (dEvarIr)[2] repeatedly, if you torture (kollAmal kola – killing without actually killing) me slowly (meLLa) with your words (vArtaiyAl), your heart (manadu) must have turned (UNDAccudallavO) into stone/iron (irunbu) - especially for you to say (sholla) that (enru) you will abandon (viTTu pOgirEn) me (ennai)......... [1] While "(I am) going" is literally "(nAn) pOgirEn", when you take leave of someone, it is considered inauspicious to say "(nAn) pOgirEn". Instead, convention is to say "(nAn) pOi varugirEn" - (I am) going now, only to return (later)" - a la "au revoir" or "auf wiedersehen"!...... [2] dEvarIr I think is a respectful way of saying 'you' (atleast, it makes sense contextually)...if I am wrong, Rajani or Arasi can help!......... [3] I changed this to 'meLLa' - that is what I hear KVN and others sing! Makes more sense as 'vella' which means to conquer.........

Meaning:------- dIkshithar sings "She is the one who dwells ("nilayE") in madurApuri. The one who wears gem-studded ("maNi") bangles ("valayE") and the one who was born as the daughter of ("tanayE") of King Malayadwaja Pandya. The one whose beautiful face ("vadanE") outshines ("viDambana") the moon ("vidu") and the one who is victorious ("vijayE"). The one who created ("kriyE") the ten gamakas associated with vINa music. The one who brings delight ("mOdita") to one's heart ("hRdayE") which is as sweet as honey ("madumada") and the one who is compassionate ("sadayE"). The one who is dear ("priyE") to Lord SundareSa. The sister ("sOdari") of Lord Vishnu, who is the enemy ("ripu") of the asuras Madu and mura and the one with a slender waist ("SAtOdari"). The one who captivates ("vaSankari") Lord Brahma ("vidi") and Lord guruguha. She is Shankari, the ever auspicious one"........... dIkshithar packs one big punch in the charaNam as he brings in the name of the kSEtra ("madhurapuri), describes the lineage of the Goddess ("malayadhwaja pAndyarAja"), incorporates the rAga mudra and the composer mudra......... Goddess rAja mAtangi is the yogic counterpart of Goddess Saraswati and is often described as holding a vINa. dIkshithar brilliantly brings in this amsha of the dEvi while at the same time incorporates the rAga mudra at "vINAgAna dasagamakakriyE"..what a genius.

From Sai Prasad...........Anupallavi:------- mAnamAtRmEyE mAyE marakataccAyE shivajAyE mInalOcani pASamOcani mAnini kadambavanavAsini.......... Meaning:------ dIkshithar gives Her the ultimate description in the anupallavi. He describes the Goddess as "the concept/knowledge ("mAna")(of the ultimate truth), the one who knows ("mAtR") (the ultimate truth) and the measurable/known part ("mEyE")(of the ultimate truth)". He continues to describe Her as "the one who creates delusion ("mAyE"), the one who has the color of emerald ("marakataccAyE") and the one who knows ("jAyE") Shiva." dIkshithar continues to describe Her as "The fish-eyed Goddess ("mInalOcani"), the one who destroys the bond of worldly attachment ("pASamOcani"), the venerated one ("mAnini") and the one who resides ("vAsini") in the kadamba forest ("kadambavana")"........... What a beautiful anupallavi. dIkshithar pays huge respect to the Goddess in these few lines. He clearly states that She is the embodiment of ultimate truth, and that by worshipping her, one can be liberated from all the worldly attachments. dIkshithar, being the yogi he was, shook off his mortal coils and attained Sripuram while making his disciples sing these very lines. When rendered properly with bhakti, these lines combined with the beautiful retta kalai Adi tALam makes one's hair stand and the rasika in me always has that tear rolling down his cheeks while saluting this great soul...............

From Sai Prasad............Pallavi:----- mInAkSi mE mudaM dEhi mEcakAngi rAja mAtangi Meaning:------ dIkshithar directly addresses the Goddess " O Goddess mInAkSi, give ("dEhi") me ("mE") bliss ("mudaM")". He describes Her as "The one who wears golden ornaments ("mEcakAngi") and the one who exists in the form of rAja mAtangi." As I mentioned in my previous blog, there is a lot of folklore associated with this temple. Please refer to my prior post on the significance behind the term "rAja mAtangi" used by dIkshithar to describe the Goddess at Madurai. The antyAkshara prAsam set in motion in the pallavi pervades all through the krithi.................

The one who rescued ("rakSita") cupid ("madanE"). The one who is in a bejeweled ("ratna") peeta ("sadanE") and the one who is adorned with ("vasanE") auspicious ("Sri") gold ("kAnCana"). The one who has a beautiful tongue ("su-rasanE"). The one whose beautiful smile ("manda hasanE") is filled with shringAra rasa." In the madhyamakala sAhitya, dIkshithar continues to describe the Goddess as "the one who is embodiment of single and multiple syllabled ("Eka-anEka-akshari") mantras. The one who rules the universe ("bhuvanESwari"). The one who is like a waterfall ("jhari") of blissful ambrosia ("EkAnandAmrta") and the one is resplendent ("bhAsvari"). The one who brings auspiciousness ("Srikari") to those who worship her with steadfast devotion ("EkAgra manOlaya"). The Goddess who rules the house ("grhESwari") of Lord EkAmrESwara and the one who symbolizes auspiciousness ("Sankari")." dIkshithar emphasizes the fruits of staunch devotion in these few lines. Look at the details he has observed in his meditative state of mind including the beautiful teeth and the graceful smile of the dEvi. The Goddess's smile once again reinforces the fact that She is no longer a "ugra" amsha of Shakti.

from sai prasad........Anupallavi:------ kunjara gamanE maNi maNDita manjuLa caraNE mAmava Siva panjara Suki pankaja mukhi guru guha ranjani durita bhanjani niranjani.......... Meaning:------ dIkshithar describes the Goddess in detail- "The one who has a majestic gait ("gamanE") like an elephant ("kunjara"). The one who has beautiful ("manjuLa") feet ("caraNE") adorned with ("maNDita") gems ("maNi"). Please protect me ("mAmava")!! The one who is the parrot ("Suki") encaged in the cage ("panjara") of Siva. The one who is lotus ("pankaja") faced ("mukhi"). The one who captivates ("ranjani") guruguha. The one who destroys ("bhanjani") all afflictions ("durita") and the one who is blemishless ("niranjani")." dIkshithar employs a majestic madhyamakAla gait to describe the Goddess's gait in the anupallavi. The pallavi begins with a "nsgsgGM" phrase. The entire anupallavi gallops in madhyamakAla. The "nsgsg" phrase seems to be a pretty significant sangathi as dIkshithar repeatedly uses it to bring out the rAga bhAva. He once again employs the "nsgsg" phrase at "mAmavasiva". dIkshithar alludes to the Goddess as the parrot in the cage of Siva. One can easily derive a much deeper meaning for this reference. The body will become a lifeless lump if there was no soul to move to physically, mentally and spiritually. Similarly, there is no point in any form ("Siva") to exist if there is no life force ("Shakti"). Thus, dIkshithar beautifully refers to the dEvi as the soul/driving force encaged within the body. dIkshithar closes the anupallavi with an amazing "psnd,pdpm,mgmpn" phrase at "durita bhanjani,niranjani". In my humble opinion, the anupallavi of this krithi serves as a websters dictionary for this rAga.

The one who has large eyes ("akSi") like lotus ("kanja") leaf ("daLa"). The one who is dear ("manOhari") to Goddess Lakshmi ("kamalA")-Goddess tripurasundari!!" dIkshithar beautifully brings in the raga mudra in the pallavi itself. This rAga has become so famous exclusively because of this krithi that people refer to the rAga itself as kamalamanOhari. As I mentioned above, the krithi starts off with the avarohaNam-"sndpmgpmg" at "kanjadaLAyatAkSi". The final oscillating gAndAram here gives the krithi a wonderful flavour. He immediately follows this with the ArOhanam-"sgmpn" at "kAmAkSi". The gAndAram seems to carry a really nice tone that gives this raga the identity and dIkshithar has repeatedly emphasized the usage of this gAndAram in this krithi.

Meaning:-------- dIkshithar describes the Lord as "He is kArthikEya, the one who is worshipped by Lord Brahma ("bhAratIsha"-husband of Goddess Saraswati) and Vishnu ("kAmajanaka"-father of the cupid) and the one held in high esteem ("bhAvita") by sage nArada and others. He is the distinguished son ("sukumAra") of vAmadEva (Lord Shiva- explained below) and Goddess pArvatI. The beauty of his form ("AkAra") is captivates ("sammohita") even the cupid ("vArijAstra"-explained below). His feet ("caraNa") is adept ("nipuNa") in granting ("vitaraNa") boons as desired ("kAmitarttha") by devotees. He embellishes ("bharaNa") epics ("kAvya"), dramas ("nATaka") and the shastra of alankAra. He illumines ("kiraNa") the 5 elements, earth("bhUmi"), water ("jala"), fire ("agni"), wind ("vAyu") and ether ("gagana"). He is the embodiment of knowledge ("bOdharUpa") and bestows ("karaNa") eternal bliss ("nityAnanda") on his devotees."............ DIkshithar portrays the delicate side of Lord SubrahmaNya in the caraNam. He directly associates this by describing the Lord as the son of vAmadEva, one of the 5 aspects of Lord Shiva. It is supposed to represent the female manifestation of the Lord and vAmadEva literally translates to beautiful God. Thus, being born out of the female manifestation of Lord Shiva and his consort pArvathi, Lord swAminAtha inherits those qualities. He describes His physical beauty as captivating and surpassing that of the Cupid. dIkshitar has some unique ways of referring to Gods. Apart from general stuff we have seen before like "kAmajanaka" to refer to Lord Vishnu and "bhAratIsha" to refer to Lord Brahma, dIkshithar uses "vArijAstra" to refer to the Cupid. "vArija" means flower in general and lotus in particular. Astra means arrow. kAmadEva is known to strike with his arrow of flowers and dIkshithar uses this to describe cupid. The madhyamakAla sAhityam in this krithi is one of my favourites. The way it gallops and flows is amazing. dIkshithar maintains the prAsam throughout the krithi and especially in the madhyamakAla sAhityam, he uses both adyAkshara as well as antyAkshara prAsam. And thats how the krithi ends, leaving the rasikA yearning for more as always..............

DIkshitar composed this masterpiece at the beautiful swAmimalai, about 5 kms from kumbakonam. The temple's significance is pretty much expressed in the song where seated Lord Siva holds Bala Murugan in his arms..............one of the Arupadai veedus. One of the greatest compositions extolling the greatness of the Lord at this kSEtra...............FROM musical scientist and Sanjay V..................svAminAtha paripAlayAshu mAm svaprakAsha vallIsha guruguha dEva sEnEsha Meaning:------ dIkshithar addresses the Lord- "Oh Lord Swaminatha, the self-resplendent ("svaprakAsha") guruguha and the Lord of Valli and dEvasEna, please protect ("paripAlaya") me ("mAm")."...................... The speciality of the Lord at swAmimalai is the legend associated with His name. It is at this location that Lord SubrahmaNya is believed to have taught his father, Lord Shiva, the meaning of the praNava mantra Om. As symbolized by the picture I have posted above, the small kid taught his own father, the great Lord Shiva and hence is addressed as swAminAtha. Thus, the Lord here is a gnAna-rUpam and Lord Shiva becomes Lord SubrahmaNya's disciple and accepts Him as the guruguha, the teacher ("guru") who dispels the darkness of ignorance from the heart caves ("guha") of the disciple. Since the Lord is glowing with all that knowledge at this kSEtra, dIkshithar precisely captures this amsha by using the words "svaprakAsha".................Lord SubrahmaNya's two wives, Valli and dEvasEna have been included in the pallavi thereby giving us a complete darshan of the main sannidhi. I would like to mention a few things about Lord SubrahmaNya at this point. Everything associated with Him has its own significance. Goddess Valli, the famous girl from the hunter's clan signifies Icha shakti or the power of desire. Goddess dEvasEna is the daughter of Indra and She signifies kriyA shakti, the power of action. In addition, Lord SubrahmaNya's spear, shaktivEl signifies gnAna shakti, the power of knowledge that removes ignorance. Lord SubrahmaNya uses the peacock as his vAhanam. The peacock, whose behaviour is unpredictable and has mood swings depending on external factors such as weather conditions, signifies the ego, the unpredictable behaviour occupying the mind of human beings. Hence Lord SubrahmaNya is the Lord of all these powers, desire, action, knowledge and control of ego............... Also, since one of the Lord's amsha is portrayed as Lord Muruga, the one who waged wars to kill demons, He is also the commander-in-chief of the army of Gods and hence the unavoidable reference to the other meaning of the word "dEva sEnEsha (Lord of the divine army)". In spiritual terms, this could also be interpreted as the Lord of the divine army of the soul consisting of the Lords of good senses and thoughts. An army which is ready to trounce the evil ego and its army which have taken over the senses of a spiritually un-enlightened human being. From the musical stand point, dIkshithar starts the pallavi off with the ArOhaNam "S r g m p n" at "swAminAtha pari". The pallavi ends with a beautiful madhyama kAla sAhityam at "vallIsha guruguha dEvasEnEsha

They want Sri Krishna and his company always. He is enchantingly dressed, his hair is well combed and decorated with the peacock plume. On his broad forehead is painted the tilaka with the sweet-smelling dark paste called Kasturi (musk). The mark bulges at the bottom and tapers towards the top. The celestial gem Koustubham hangs next to his bosom. At the tip of his nose is a rare pearl. He holds the famous flute in his palm. His wrist is decorated with the wristlet. His whole body shines attractively, smeared with yellow sandal paste. He wears a string of pearls round his neck. Really he outshines any other cowherd in the Gokula Vraja. He is ever glorious and victorious....................................from Dr. W Radhakrishnayya.

This verse from the epic Mayaneeyam is wriiten by Sri Narayana Bhattathri. Sri Bhattathri was a Namboodri Brahmana born in 1560 in Melputtor, which is located on the north banks of Bharatha puzhai, close to a kshetram (holy town) called Thirunava. Bhattathri's father was Mathrudattar, a great pandit. Bhattathri studied from his father itself when he was a child. He learnt Rg veda (adhyayanam) from Madhavacharyar. He learnt Tharka sastra (science dealing with arguments in sanskrit) from Damodaracharyar. He learnt Vyakarana (sanskrit grammar - ilakanam (in Tamil)) from Achyuthabiksharadi. He became a pandit at the age of 16. After some time his vyakarana guru (Achyuthabiksharadi) fell sick. By yogic strength Bhattathri took the disease on himself and relieved his guru. He decided to go to Guruvayoor and do tapas there. Everyday he sang 10 shlokas on Sri Guruvayoorappan. In 100 days he finished his compositions. On 27th november, 1587 when he finished the last dashakam he was cured. He was 27 then. He lived 106 years He was a propounder of purva mimamsa, uttara mimamsa and vyakarana.

Avani Shringeri : Story of Sharadambal Temple According to legend, Sri Adi Sankara won an important debate over Sri Mandana Mishra, the incarnation of Sri Subramanya himself. Sri Adi Sankara requested that Sri.Ubhaya Bharathi, wife of Sri Mandana Mishra and the incarnation of Goddess Saraswathi herself, grace the place of his choice. Devi undertook the journey on the condition that Adi Sankara not look backward. However, he did when he heard her shalanga. Devi was forced to transform Herself into a shila. The idol has been in the possession of the Avani Sankarai Mutt. With the blessings of the present peetadhipathi of Avani Peetam, Devi now graces the temple for Adi Sharadambal, which has been built on the top of a hill behind Avani Sringeri Mutt. The temple was designed and built by Padma Shri Ganapathi Sthapathi of Kanchipuram. The Saradambal temple and Avani Sringeri Mutt are approachable by road from both Bangalore and Chennai. From Bangalore, take NH 4 towards Mulbagal and take a left turn near Sani temple, and go 2 kms to Avani temple. From Chennai, take NH 4 towards Mulbagal and take a left turn near the Sani temple and go 2 kms towards Avani.

Wafting through the gentle breeze comes this song, making the eyes well with tears, a song with a tune that can make rocks melt and make dead trees spring back to life. A song comes floating in the breeze.....A song with a sweet enchanting melody that can tame the wild, inducing the creatures of the forest into a trance. A song that awakens the heart, setting it aflame with desire, dousing all other thoughts.....A tune comes wafting in the air......The chirping birds and the swarming flies are lulled into an ecstasy, their hearts brimming with joy. The pantheon of stars in the sky, stop in their tracks to ponder over this song that comes drifting through the breeze.....Oh, where can I find the source of this this tune that comes wafting in the air ?.... One magical night, lit with the bright silvery moon together with the flow of a gentle breeze coming across the river, there stood this young boy, all blue in the moonlight, holding a flute and playing this song......All time stopped still at that moment. ....All my life I have been waiting for him, my heart melting with love for him........A song comes wafting in the breeze.....

From R. Krishnaswami................Nadopasana is bhakthi, worship, and devotion through music. .... Sri Thyagaraja Swami used his compositions to energize our inner spiritual forces or nadopasana to attain moksha or salvation in this life. There are several references to nadopasana in Indian musicology, philosophy, and epics. For example, in The Sangita Rathnakara, the opening slokas explain how nada and Kundalini (1) are interrelated and how this comprehension is necessary for salvation. Sri Thyagaraja Swami took the first three slokas and composed the following kritis, Nada Thanum Anisam, Sobhillu Saptha Swara, and Nadopasana, using the first, second, and third sloka respectively.......... According to Hindu sastras, Naabhi, Hrith, Kanta, Rasana, and Naasa are the sources of sound which originate from the Mooladhara or the inner soul. The recognition of this Mooladharaja naada is itself moksha says Sri Thyagaraja in the Sankarabharanam kriti, Swara Raga Sudharasa. In this connection, it is interesting to note that Sir John Sparrow, in his book titled, Serpent Power, equates Kundalini with endogenous sound. The identification of the correct srutis as the home of the swaras is also important for experiencing moksha or liberation “Saptha Swarmula Grhuhamula guruthe mokshamura.” The worship of pure sound emanating from within you and identifying yourself with it and being in consonance with it is liberation or moksha........ Sri Thyagaraja Swami not only stresses the importance of recognizing and developing the ability to experience Mooladhara nada, but also more specifically asks the votaries to practice sangitopasana as a means and prelude to enjoying nadopasana. In his composition, Sribapriya Sangeethopasana in Atana, he conjures up visions of the mind travellin in the swaras - “Sapthaswara Chaari” and melodic ragas manifesting themselves in delightful forms - “Ranjimpa chesedu ragambulu, manjulamagu navatarambulethi.” He stresses other and nearer terrestrial benefits of sangita gana - “Prema Bhakthi, Sujana Vathsalyamu, Srimath Ramaa vara Katakshamu, Nema Nishta Yasodhanamu” as the rewards of acquiring Sangita Sastra gnana.......... These discussions on nadopasana thus point out how Sri Thyagaraja was not only an excellent musicologist conforming to the traditional sastras but who, through simple songs with pristine purity, taught us the nature and purpose of music. Indeed , through sangita he urged us to acquire the wisdom of perceiving Brahman, the intelligence to analyze and experience Him; the diligence to seek Him; and the patience to wait for enlightenment. He described his Rama as an embodiment of Nada. No other composer has in such a simple and appealing ways taught music as art, science, philosophy and ultimately, as a means to salvation...................NOTE : (1) According to Yoga sastras, we humans are a microcosmic image of the universe. This universal energy that each human carries within oneself is the Kundalini. The Kundalini lies dormant until awakened. The object of certain forms of yoga is to awaken this dormant force and to let it lead us to the p
