Siva siva siva ena radha

7:20 PM Posted by Vijayasri

'Siva Siva Siva ena radha' is a beautiful Tyagaraja composition set on raaga 'pandhuvarali' and rupaka talam.

Ragam Kamavardhini:

Kamavardani is the 51st Melakarta rāgam in the 72 melakarta rāgam system of Carnatic music. It is also referred by the name Pantuvarali although purists prefer to designate it as Kamavardani.
This rāgam is very popular with musicians who typically sing it in the beginning of a concert.
This raaga is very deep and when heard makes one completely

Meaning of the song according to(TK Govinda Rao’s book)

Mortals ! Why do you not rid yourselves of the trials and tribulations of life by chanting the name of SIVA repeatedly ?

Root out KAMA-lust and other vile infections on the mind, eschew the desire for women and other’s wealth, rid yourself of ignorance and worship Siva with Bilva leaves

Associate with righteous men, regard them as gods and not giving any room to any shyness, worship Siva in the lotus of your heart with abandon and chant the holy name of Siva

Chanting the VEDAs, extol the Lord.

Avoid all fruitless talk and in the company of noble devotees, indulge in chanting the name of the Lord and singing His glory. Knowing that SIVA is the Lord whom this TYAGARAJA bows down to chant, the name of SIVA eternally!
