...Alaipayuthe Kanna...

Hi Friends,
Now I'm posting a new song which is a Karnatic Based song. Its "Alaipayuthe Kanna",which is performed by me at Sree Abheda Ashramam, Trivandrum.I've got a pretty good appreciation for that programme.That was a great stage where great eminent persons perform and i felt really proud and Thankful to God for giving me such an opportunity .

Sathguru Sree Abhedananda Maharaj was born on 1909 april 8th on the star "vishakham".He had been the Spiritual Guru of many great personalities.My father is a strong devotee of Sathguru Maharaj and we got many oppurtunities to know more about the greatness of Gurudev. Gurudev was a great musician.His Bhajans took the listeners to another world of devinity.Eventhough he haven't formally learnt music, He knew plenty of Ragas. When He sang, one get the feeling that He forgets Himself.According to Him, When doing Bhajan,you should Sing sing sing aloud till your heart breaks’.Such a holy person was Sathguru Maharaj. In 1958, Swamiji introduced the idea of Kodiarchana, where in He envisaged that devotees irrespective of caste or creed could join together chanting the divine mahamantra and conduct archana, a crore (kodi) times. Now also that system is followed in the Ashramam. Gurudev lighted a lamp in Ashramam which is not yet got off.24 hours , Saints of the Ashramam move around the Holy Flame, chanting the manthra

"Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare".
The devotees of Ashramam celebrated the 50th anniversay of installation of that Deepam and Manthra Chanting, recently.
Visit the website of Ashramam
And on 29th October, 1983, the Great Guru attained the Eternal Bliss in the lap of Mother Ganga.His was a Jala Samathi.

Before this krithi, I sang "Swagatham Krishna" in Mohana Ragam.To my great excitement, towards the end of the song, Lord Krishna's Idle is taken out of the Temple for Shiveli (a ritual in which its believed that Lord Himself comes out of the temple to see whether His Boothaganams are satisfied with the Pooja offered.).It was a great excitement for me.You can hear the sound of Deeparadhana Bell ringing after Shiveli at the starting of this krithi.I believe its really a blessing of Lord.

This Krithi is composed by Oothukkadu Venkata Subbaiyer in Kanada Ragam, Adi Thalam.
Arohanam : Sa Ri Ga Ma Dha Ni Sa
Avarohanam : Sa Ni Pa Ma pa Gaa Ma Ri Sa.

With Me In Stage
Violin : Sri. Prof. Neyyattinkara Subrahmaniam
Mridangam : Sri. Manu , Parasala
Ghatam : Sri. Anand Krishna

I dedicate this song to all from whom I could learn even a single musical note and especially to my Gurus

...Sabarimalayil Thanka Sooryodayam...

Hi Friends...
This is a devotional song on Swami Ayyappa.
The month of Vrishchikam came.All the ways lead to Sabarimala.
Sabarimala, The place where Unity, Peace and Tolerance prevails.The place where God and the Devotee are known with same name (Swami or Ayyappan).
41 days from the Vrischikam 1st are the days of Devotion and Vritham. Devotee lives like the God.The devotee is considered as God. I'm bowing before the great power , Swami Ayyappan and giving my song, my voice as my Kanikka (Offering).
Swami Saranam.
