as far as I know,
MSS has not sung it , but she has sung sri kantha enagishtu-kaanada-purandaradasar.
na ninna dhyanadolilaru is sung by BMK (in kind of hindustani style which is more popular)
this is also rendered by T Muktha and her student S sowmya in an album called T muktha
R V Vishwathanathan also has sung it which is available on youtube.

This recording looks quite rare for me coz,
Radha jayalakshmi have sung 1st and 3rd charanam of the song,(usually other musicians take up pallavi a.pallavi and 3rd charanam of this song)

Is there any recording where all three charanams are sung ??

Hi
I am trying to learn this song by just listening to available renditions.
Balamuralikrishna, Rajkumar Bharathi and Radha Jayalakshmi all have sung charnams 1 and 3 only.
Rajkumar Bharathi's version kalapramanam is a tad faster and he has sung very well - but I liked that slower kalapramanam versions by the other two better

i just heard rajkumar bharathi's recital and it has all the 3 charanams ......!!!

this dasarapadam is very unique because purandaradasar has said a fact in the ending line of each charanam(which one should feel by himself spiritually).
