Narayana Teertha

A programme on the life and musical work of Narayana Teertha.

Narayana Theertha was a sanyasi who followed both Bhakti and Nadopasana, as worship. He is an integral part of the Bhajana Sampradaya in India. The compositions are from the 'Sri Krishna Leela Tarangini', a dance drama, which is based on the life of Lord Krishna, from His birth to His marriage with Rukmini. This work of Narayana Teertha is dedicated to Lord Venkatesa at Varahur in Tanjavur, and is said to have been composed on a pilgrimage from Puri to Varahur. Of course, the original tunes of these songs have been lost; the evocative tunes that we have now have been composed by various eminent musicians.
