Thyagaraja Aradhana 2017 Is today.

[Saint-Thyagaraja-.jpg]

Greatness of a country depends on the quality
Of its people- culture, knowledge and nobility.
Culture and literature it has produced for long
Greatly valued and recognized by the world along!

India that is Bharath with its hoary culture
Intellectual and spiritual literature
Add greatness and earn place of pride among the nations
One great Saint Poet was Thyagabrahmmaml- in admiration!

Telugu poet in Tamilnadu- whose hymns in thousands
All in praise of Lord Rama and her consort-profound
Sung with reverence by all devotees all over the world
Today is his aradhana at Thiruvaiyaru- a holy place in fold!

Musicians Karnatic and devotees of all faiths
Converge on the banks of river Cauveri in Thanjavur
From morning till night programs in divinity sure
The audience entire in ecstasy and nobility pure!

Scene from the Aradhana at Thiruvaiyaru, Thanjavur District.

 

PS: “Pancha rathna keerthanas” of Thyagaraja in Telugu- “Five gems of verses” of Thyagarajaswami were translated by this  Blogger into Tamil and they were brought out as a CD -Vocal Smt. Ranganayaki Sachidanandam, Violin Sri Sachidanandam and Mridangam Dr. K. Thyagarajan and it was very much liked and appreciated  by former President of India Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam who visited the artists’ home at Madurai and heard their music personally rendered. For a story on this, please view from the archives.

    “Musicians Karnatic and devotees of all faiths
    Converge on the banks of river Cauveri in Thanjavur
    From morning till night programs in divinity sure
    The audience entire in ecstasy and nobility pure!”
