Nada in Tyagaraja Kritis - 2

Part 2 of the feature on Tyagaraja's songs on the concepts of sound and music.

There are very interesting references to music and nada, the musical sound in the compositions of composer Tyagaraja, who himself is known as a Naada Yogi. If, in Mokshamu Galadaa, he places knowledge of sangita on par with true bhakti as the criteria to be eligible for salvation, in Vara Raaga Layaajnulu, he criticises those who brag about their knowledge of raga and laya without bothering to acquaint themselves with the subtleties of the svaras. He has also explored naada in all its various dimensions in different compositions. This is the second and final part of the theme.
