The kamas song should be daNdanAthayA rakSitOsmyaham not daNdanAthayA rakSa mAm, as can be found in books as well as certain oral parampara-s. The bhinnaSaDja song too suffers from such mistakes in printed versions.

In Kayarohanesham and Ambaneelayatakshi, Sri MD refers to the kshetra as Shivarajadhani while in Soundarajam Ashraye he names it as Nagapattina.

DId the place have two names and Shivarajdhani got obscured over a period of time while Nagapattina remained?

Shivarajadhani is the term usually used in Shaiva literature. This term do not find its presence in any of the works by Vaishnavite poets. So he used the former term in Amba neelayathakshi, a song dediacted to Ambaal and not in Soundararaajam.

Is Sri Sukra Bhagavantham an authentic Dikshitar krithi?

There seems to be no ending rhymes in the charanam like there usually is

It is a surprise to find srI krishnam (updated: forget srI krishnam, already discussed in earlier posts) and harihara putram in that - both relatively popular ones! What's the learned members opinion on that?

Rupamu juchi is notated by Subbarama Deekshithar and hence becomes authentic.

Dheekshithar is known to have composed many ragamalikas himself. May I have some information about them? and if possible, links to renderings?

in continuation of @366-> stumbled upon this part in a blog post..."
http://sureshs65music.blogspot.in/2009/ ... w=flipcard

Dikshitar fans will bash me up if I do not mention the ragamalikas that he has composed. And how can I forget to mention them, when one of them, 'Sree Vishwanatham' happens to be my most favourite amongst all ragamalikas. We were very lucky to once hear SRJ talk in detail about this ragamalika.
(Of the trinity only Dikshitar has composed ragamalikas. He has composed 5 ragamalikas).
'Sree Vishvanatham' is a chaturdasa ragamalika. As the name indicates it has 14 ragas in it. The intensity and seriousness of this composition has to be heard to be believed. Everything that we love about Dikshitar is present in this composition. Every line reveals his great scholarship and this is a text book lesson on how to compose a ragamalika without trivializing it. Dikshitar does every trick that singers nowadays adopt, like coming back in the descending raga sequence but nowhere is this just a trick. It is done majestically, with all earnestness and with such astounding beauty. If you do not yet possess this grand krithi and
if you happen to chance upon a CD / tape of MLV singing this krithi, don't hesitate. Just pick it up. This will be a treasure in your CD chest. MLV does great justice to this monumental composition and never have I heard it only once when I have put on the tape. It has to be repeated atleast a few time before I can stop. Such is my addiction to this composition. In case you haven't heard this krithi, time to click on the youtube video below to listen to MLV's rendition.

It would be very nice to have the ragam name for each.

The Chaturdasa Ragamalika, 'Sri Viswanatham' is a string of 14ragas.
The composition is in praise of Lord Viswanatha.
The pallavi comprises of, two ragas, Sri and Arabhi.
The Anupallavi takes four ragas namely Gauri, Nata, Gaula and Mohana.
The charana is composed in
eight ragas, Sama, Lalita, Bhairavam, Saranga, Sankarabharanam,
Kamboji, Devakriya and Bhupala.\
At the end of the composition there is
a combination of all the 14 ragas in the reverse order from Bhupala to Sri raga.
The way Muthuswami Dikshitar has incorporated the raga mudra into the sahitya is simply amazing.
The above information is from a Shadhganga paper on the krithis of Muthuswamy Dheekshithar,

I have received a query about Rakta Ganapati Temple. I could not trace the temple in Google Search.
Can somebody throw light?
