Simply Divine!

This 31st December was best ever year end that I have ever had!!

I had the previlege of attending a katcheri by Sri Sri Vidhyabhushana Theertha Swamiji at the Raghavendra temple at Ayanavaram, at the occasion of inauguartion of their charitable trust called "Sri Raghavendra Granthalaya".

Swamiji's songs and his voice were simply divine. He sang some of Purandara Dasa and Kanaka dasara padgalu.

I was very disappointed when my all time favourite song "Pillangoviya chelluva Krishna", which is one of kanaka dasara padagulu, was not a part of the concert.. But I did enjoy every moment of the song "Ishtu Idhna e Vaikunta Eshtu dooravu" .. It was simply divine...
And I am glad that I was blessed enough to see Swamji.

And to share the bliss with you all.. Here is the kannada song which I love the most..

pillangoviya cheluva kriShNana elli noDidhiri
rangana elli noDidhiri?
elli noDidha alli thaan illa dhillavendu baalla jaanaru

nandhagopana mandhiragaLa sandhugondinali
chandha chandhaha Gopaala baalara vrundh Avanadadali
sundharaangadha sundhariyara hindhu mundhinali
andhadhAkala kandharugaLa mundhe mundheyali

su mangala yoga yogadhali
aagamarthadhoLage maaDuva yaaga yaagadhali
shreege bhagya naasha vaarthipa bhoga bhoghadhalli
bhagavatharu sadhaa baagi paaDutha raagaraagadhali

charaachara dhoLage janangalaache eecheyali
kEcharEndranasuthana rathada chauka peetadhali
naachade maadhava emba bhakthara vaachakangaLali
meechukonDadha purandhara vitthalana lochanaagradhali

  3. It is not kanak dasara padagalu, it is purandara dasara padagalu
