AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Man's Quest and Hinduism Brahmajnana, Yoga and Dharma are the three essentialities of Hinduism; wherever it travels, these three must spread. Shankara's philosophy may compel the homage of the intellectual, Sankhya attract the admiration of the analytical mind, Buddha capture the rationalist in search of a less material synthesis than the modern scientist's continual Annam Brahma [Matter is Supreme], but these are only grandiose intellectualities. The world at large does not live by the pure intellect...

A goal of life, a practice of perfection and a rational, yet binding law of conduct, - these are man's continual quest, and in none of these demands is modern Science able to satisfy humanity. In reply to all such wants Science can only cry, Society and again Society and always Society. But the nature of man knows that Society is not the whole of life. Yajnavalkya's universal dictum stands: a man loves and serves Society for the sake of the Self and not for the sake of Society.

What Science could not provide, India offers
: Brahman for the eternal goal, Yoga for the means of perfection, dharma (swabhava-niyatam karma) for the rational yet binding law of conduct. Therefore, because it has something by which humanity can be satisfied and on which it can found itself, the victory of the Indian mind is assured.

- Sri Aurobindo (Excerpts from The Psychology of Yoga, from his notebook of 1911).

Assorted Tyagaraja Kritis

In this section, I present a huge collection of tyagaraja kritis rendered by various musicians as part of various concerts/LPs/cassettes spanning over 50 years. This was painstakingly collected by a gentleman and came into my hands. The concert details such as date and in some cases, the artist names are not listed. If you know them please post them on the archive's discussion forum.

NEW! There is a section called Contributions from Visitors like you in my karnatak section where I started putting online concerts that visitors uploaded to my website. Enjoy them too!

A highlight is "Sruti-based tradition of singing Tyagaraja kritis", contributed by Sri B.Raman. Many of the popular ragas like nATa and kritis like j~nAnamosagarAdA sound very different. Here is Raman's posting in our discussion forum giving more info on this style of singing.
