Dikshitar's kritis have deep philosophical import and we can see advaitic
concepts running through them. I am sure somebody might have done
some research work on this. If I am right, can some friends indicate where
we can look for it. Thanks and regards,
N.R. Patanjali

fabulous veena players they are! :)

i have heard one of their commercial releases featuring Dikshitar kritis on Muruga... has one brilliant Brindavana Saranga alapana followed by Swaminathena, in addition to Parvathi Kumaram, Senapathe, Shri Subramanyaya and Gajamba Nayako. Very nice indeed.

Thank you all for such a warm welcome!!

We were actually wanting to suggest for your listening, our album titled "Subramanya" that Shri venkatpv has mentioned. A little bit of an extra effort has gone into its production by way of incorporating in the sleeve notes, the sAhithyam of the compositions presented, as well as the meaning in a gist. This was done with assistance from our friend Shri N. Seshan, an expert on Advaitha philosophy. We have been accompanied by Shri Mannargudi Easwaran and Shri EM Subramaniam on the mridangam and ghatam respectively. The CD has been produced by Mudhra Music. Should you have any difficulty procuring the same, do let us know.

Dear Shri Coolkarni, we would be very happy to share some of our concert recordings with rasikas in this forum.

Warm Regards,
Jeyaraaj & Jaysri

Hello Davalangi,
Could you please repost the Kashi Vishweshara Ehi Mam Pahi song by Sri SRJ in Raga Kambhoji? Looks like the file is gone from rapidshare.

Thanks much.
Venkatesh.

Veenajj
Has Sri N. Seshan written any commentary on Dikshithar's
kritis bringing out the advaitic philosophy of the compositions ?
Kindly enlighten me on this. Thanks.

Shri Patanjali, sorry to have missed your post for all this time. Sri Seshan has not yet published any books or commentaries as such on the subject.

dIkshitar was not also a great Carnatic music composer, but also has composed Sanskrit poems. His laudatory verse on the diety ShrI tyAgarAjA is a wonderful stOtra extolling the glories of the Lord of tiruvArUr.

Yes, ShuddAnanda bhArati has composed, "muttu muttAgavE murugan gugan aruLAl" (mentioned as composed in bhairavi in his book). I will check if they're others.

This is incorrect. Vedavalli Amma sings it as 'venkaTEshwara supUjitEna'.

I have heard most singers singing it as venkaTEshwara supUjitEna and not as Venkateshwara vibhavitena or Venkateshwara nama rupena.

In the MD kRti 'subrahmaNyEna' - the word 'kanka Saila vihArENa' occurs According to Sanskrit Dictionary ''kanka' means 'a heron'.
In the book of 'Muthuswamy Dikshitar KeerthanangaL' by M/S A Sundaram Iyer and S Venkatesan, it is mentioned that 'kanka Saila' means 'kazhugu malai' and 'venkaTesvara' is the name of a King who ruled that area who was a devotee of the Lord.

Please visit http://www.aaraamthinai.com/aanmeegam/2 ... meegam.asp - http://www.hindu.com/mp/2004/10/16/stor ... 310100.htm and http://www.indiantemples.com/Tamilnadu/m023.html to know more about the Muruguan Temple at Kazhugu Malai and the association of MD with the sthala.

This confusion about 'venkatesvara nAmadhEya' or 'venkaTesvara nAma rUpa' may be more to do with the age old controversy about Lord Venkatesvara - whether the original mUrti was that of Murugan.
As the kshEtra is identified, the word 'venkaTesvara' would not, IMHO, refer to Tirupati. Accordingly, 'venkaTesvara supUjitEna' might be the correct version.

PS : In the website - http://www.hindu.com/ms/2004/12/01/stor ... 480400.htm about the book on 'Sangita Sampradaya Pradarsini' there is a mention of a King named 'Raja Jagadaveera Rama Venkateswara Ettappa' and period is 1899 - much after MD. It is possible that a King of that name - grand father - might have existed during the peiod of MD. Books also mention that Ettayapuram Kings were great patrons of MD and his lineage.

Of course, the Maharaja of Eddyapuram when MD lived there was also another 'venkaTEshwara'. MD has a kriti in mEgharanji - vEnkaTESwara eDDappa bhUpatim

A nice artcle, but once again suffers from an abyssmal lack of proof reading!
from the article wrote:However, for the earnest seeker, the veil of ethereal music lifts, to reveal a wealth of information that is at once mystical and esoteric; lyrical and grammatical; mythological and philosophical; poetical and musical.
Reminds me of Rajaji's - 'tiraiyin pin nirkinrAy (kaNNA) unnai maRai Odum gnyAniar maTTumE kANbAR'

Re(va)gupti is the bhUpALam existing today. The bhUpAla of MD uses g2 in its scale, a janya of 9th meLa.

s r1 g2 p d1 s
s d1 p g2 r1 s. sadAcalesvaram bhAvaye is an example. Changing g2 to G3 becomes revagupti.

In SangIta sampradAya pradarshini, SD critizes people using g3for g2 in bhUpALam. He mentions that using g2 would bring them all the benefits of bhUpALam.

To me "tOgai iLamayil.. " sounds like the raga jana sammodini (!) imported from HM. The scale is

s r2 g3 p d1 s
s d1 p g3 r2 s. Change d2 to d1 in mohanam
