#1 Vallabha Nayakasya - Not Dikshitar???

Post by HarishankarK » 17 May 2018, 12:35

Y'day I was informed that Vallabha Nayakasya is a spurious Dikshitar kriti?
Is this true? Can this even be true?

How can Prasa-correct, Begada Bhava-purna, yati, chhandas abounding Vallabha Nayakasya be a spurious composition?

It is not notated in Pradarshini. Perhaps that might be the reason.

Less than half of the known corpus of Muthuswamy Dikshitar are in the SSP.

Whether the known krithis were all composed by Deekshithar is the question.

Sorry I am unable to confirm the source but 100% reliable source
Sri Lakshmi Varaham was also disputed as a Dikshitar kriti by same source

Reliable source?

Was he living in the times of Muthuswamy Deekshithar and working with him in documenting his compositions? If not, it is mere speculation. Unless you do a linguistic analysis and show substantial variation in language style.

Some people claim that all Deekshithar have been documented in the SSP and any krithi not there is spuriously attributed to Deekshithar. By that token, about 240 krithis go out the window
