Today we are glad to post Sri Tyagaraja Kriti.
This composition is set in a very rare raga Umaabharanam.
In this composition Sri Tyagaraja chiding Rama that he has deluded even the most learned pundits, earthly kings, those who engaged in six forms of worship, those who devoted to chant his holy names by creating differences of deities as Brahma, Vishnu and Siva. He asks why you make even those who have understood his true secrets to languish?
Let us enjoy the kriti in two versions.
Sung by Sri Madurai Mani Iyear and in Flute by Sri T.R. Mahalingam (Maali).
Sri Tyagaraja Aradhana is on 28th Jan 2016, let us hear more of his kritis.

Nija Marmamulanu – Umaabharanam – Sri Tyagaraja
Nija Marmamulanu Telisina Vaarini
Nee Valayinche Dhemako Raama
Oh Rama, I don’t know why you make even those who have understood your true secrets languish?
Aja Gaja Rakshaka Gaja Sarma Ambara Adhi
Dhaiva Bheda Mula Leela Kalga Jesina Nee
The one who has done his leela by creating differences of deities as Brahma, Vishnu and Siva.
Aja – Brahma ; Gaja Rakshaka – The one who saved Gajendra (Vishnu), Gaja Charma Ambarara - The one who wears elephant skin as his garment. (Shiva)
Shruti Saastra Puraana Vivaadi Shanmatha Nishthula Naama Paraadula
Kshitipatulan Kumatulugaa Jesina Kshema Thyaagaraajanutha Shree Manohara
Oh Lord the one who is worshipped by Tyagaraja, why you have deluded even, those who have learned the Vedas, Shastraas and Puranaas, those dedicated to six forms of worship, those devoted to chanting your divine name and even the kings, Oh Lord the one who has stolen the heart of Lakshmi.
