Meaning of 'Saroja dala netri' - a syama shastri Composition.


Oh daughter of Himagiri, your eyes are like petals of lotus. I have faith in your lotus feet. Oh Mother Meenakshi (one who has fish shaped eyes), bestow me happiness.


Is there any other God in this world who bestows boons like you. Don’t be indifferent towards me. You are primeval. Your tresses look like a black swarm of bees. You hold a parrot in your hand. You are the queen of Sada Siva.

Charanam 1

You are famous for fulfilling the wishes of your devotees. Am I a burden to you? I can not bear this delay, Oh all merciful Goddess.

Charanam 2

You have moon like face. I sought your grace repeatedly, why this delay? It is not befitting you. You are the repository of kindness.

Charanam 3

You immerse pleasantly in the music of Samaveda. You are the abode of noble qualities. You are worshipped by Syama Krishna. You re my refuge, Oh Syamala Devi. You enchant even Rati and Manmatha (Gods of Love). Protect me, Oh Mother.

    Excellent rendering by Yesudas, Please dont stop there, sing the charanam. Samagana vinodhini. He shows the emotional bhava when he is singing kripalavalane talajalane.

    can you also download the same song sung by other carnatic music stalwarts particularly MS? at the UN in 1966.
