SREE GANANATHA (LAMBODARA) Geetham

3:55 PM Posted by Vijayasri


Geethams :
Once the varishais (sarali, janta, dhatu, melstayi) and the sapta tala alankaras are taught, we move on to Geethams. Geethams is the next level where the student has a chance to learn the Sahithyam (lyrics) along with the swarams.
The first geetham taught is 'Sree Gananatha Sindura Varna' in the name of Lord Vinayaka set on Malahari Raagam.

Pallavi:
O leader of the pramada ganas, (“sri gana natha”), you are the clor of vermillion (“sindhura varna”), and the ocean of compassion (“karuna sagara”). You have the visage (“vadana”) of the mighty elephant (“kari”) and a protruding belly (“lambodara”). You hold goddess lakshmi (“lakumi”) in your hand (“kara”). O son of Parvathi (“amba sutha”) you are worshipped by (“vinutha”) the gods (“amara”).

Charanam 1:
You have all the holy men at your feet (“siddha charana”) and you are worshipped by the pramadha ganas who are the followers of lord Siva (“gana sevitha”). You grant your devotees all their wishes (“siddhi vinayaka”) and I bow to you (“the namo ”).

Charanam 2:
You are the first (“aadi”) one to receive obeisance (“poojitha”) when setting upon acquiring any kind of knowledge (“sakala vidhya”). You are the greatest one of all (“sarvothama”) and I pray to you.
