Thyagaraja Araadhanai – Saturday the 26th January 2019

 

The Pancharatna kritis are written in the praise of Lord Rama. The ragas of these compositions 
(Naata (Jagadananda karaka), Goula(Dudukugala), Aarabhi(Sadhinchene), Varali(Kanakana Ruchira), 
Sri(Endaro mahanubhavulu)) are the five ‘Ghana ragas‘ of Carnatic music also called the ‘Ghanapanchaka’. 
These krithis are treated as Precious gems of Saint Tyagaraja.

 

“The Pancharatna Kritis” are meant to be ‘living guidelines’ and if understood properly, would benefit us personally. 
This way the first song “Jagadhanandha Kaaraka” is a simple prayer to Rama to bless us; 
the second “Duduku Gala” traces the anxiety of the composer that Rama would not bother to bless us given our inexcusable wrongdoings; 
the third “Saadinchene” seeks to remove this fear by pointing out that the Lord would even go against his own earlier teachings to protect us;
The fourth, “Kana kana ruchira” explains the renewed faith in the Lord’s affection for us.
The fifth and the last “Endaro Mahanubhavulu” reminds us of ancient devotees and great personalities, who became beacons for other suffering individuals.
These five songs lead us to enjoy ‘Godly-experience’.
