Can someone confirm if this is the padam of Ghanam Seenayya? Have come across some articles stating that there is a kurinji padam Siva deeksha...

78 rpm records of MS also have this song along with a ragamalika and Tanam.

Regards,
Aditya.

Yes. There is a padam by Ghanam Seenayya (said to be ? 1704-1731) - which starts as Siva deeksha paru raalanu raa. set to kurinji ragam.
usually seen in dance performances.
here is a link to a dance to this song in a Telugu movie pooja phalam (ANR, Jamuna, Savitri, Jaggayya) - beautifully danced by the renowned L.Vijayalakshmi

It is actually quite an unconventional theme for a carnatic song -
here is another link to a post / review of this song -
