For a recent update of this post, view the latets post: Download Tyagaraja Kriti Lyrics
I have added a new category on “Tyagaraja Kritis”. In this category I will post the Tyagaraja Kritis in both Telugu and also English fonts. This consists of the Kritis composed by Tyagaraja. Since I am not a musician, I do not present any raagas or talas in which these are sung. I will add lyrics, both in Telugu and English, and also the meaning, so one who sings these can sing them with full understanding of their meaning, which cultivates devotion to Rama in our heart.
Let us bear it in our hearts that, knowledge of music, though very fine, but devoid of Bhakti, is useless and does not take us any near to Rama. Even if we are devoid of the knowlede of music, and yet if we possess pure faith and devotion to Rama’s feet, that will take us to Him. It is only “Bhava” that is important, not the “Knowledge of Music”.
