#1 Sharing a new tillana in 'srI rAgam' in praise of Varalakshmi

Post by kanniks »

Greetings on the occasion of 'srAvaNa pourNami pUrvasta sukra vAram' - when varalakshmi vratham (nonbu) is celebrated in many communities in Southern India.

Sharing a new Tillana in srI rAgam in praise of Varalakshmi that I composed recently; thank you Harsha Nagarajan for rendering it beautifully. This tillana is inspired by Dikshitar's well known composition 'sri varalakshmi' in the same raga.

The lyrics in the charaNam are as follows:

'varalakshmIm bhaja rE rE mAnasa
suranara mahitAm suhrdaya viditAm
purahara guruguha hridaya ranjanIm
hiraNmayIm lalitAm kamalAm shrIm'

Delighted to share it with Rasikas. Thank you so much.

To the best of my knowledge there is no thillana in sriragam or may be there is one which no one has brought it into the concert circuit. Well done even in the first phrase of thillana there is a distinct sriragam phrase to my ears. Well done kanniks and Harsha Nagarajan

Very beautiful, thank you. The tillana consists exquisite finishes that are the hallmark of good tillanas, reminiscent of the maestro Lalgudi.
