Category Archives: Tyagaraja Kritis

This consists of the Kritis composed by Tyagaraja. Since I am not a musician and does not want to become one by being devoid of Bhakti, 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.

Thanks,
Aparna

Tyagaraja Kriti – 1: sompaina manassutO impaina bangAru

 
 కృతి-1 
 
 
సొంపైన మనస్సుతో ఇంపైన బంగారు                 

గంపలతో మంచి చంపకములను                 

చల్లరే రామచంద్రుని పైని పూల ..                 

1. పామరములు మాని ప్రేమముతో రామ                 

    మనోహరుని పై తామర పూల .. చల్లరే                 

2. ధాత వినుతుడైన సీతాపతి పైన                  

    చేతులార జాజి సంపెంగ పూల .. చల్లరే                 

3. అమిత పరాక్రమ ద్యుమణీ కులార్ణవ                 

    విమల చంద్రుని పై హృత్కుముద సుమముల .. చల్లరే                 

4. ఎన్నరాని జనన మరణము లేకుండ                 

    మనసార త్యాగరాజ నుతుని పైని పూల .. చల్లరే 

sompaina manassutO impaina bangaaru

gaMpalatO maMci caMpakamulanu

callarE rAmacandruni paini pUla ..

1. pAmaramulu mAni prEmamutO rAma

manOharuni pai tAmara pUla … callarE

2. dhAta vinutuDaina sItA pati paina

cEtulAra jAji saMpenga pUla .. callarE

3. amita parAkrama dyumaNI kulArNava

vimala caMdruni pai hrutkumuda sumamula .. callarE

4. ennarAni janana maraNamu lekuMDa

manasAra tyAgaraja nutuni paini pUla .. callarE

Dear fellow-seekers,

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”.

Thanks,
Aparna Hari
