Tyagaraja (Makers of Indian Literature)
Tyagaraja (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
About the Book:

Tyagaraja (1767-1847), the foremost composer of Karnataka music, sublime singer and Rama-bhakta, is hailed as Sadguru. The extant Tyagaraja canon consists of about six hundred Kirtanas and two musical plays. Graphic descriptions, poetic fancies, apt similes, illustrations and analogies, humour and satire, wordly sayings and wise observations make the corpus of Tyagaraja's songs a veritable gold mine. His songs are widely known and learnt, and Karnataka music recitals are dominated by his creations. All the earlier creative efforts led to Tyagaraja and all that was created after Tyagaraja in the immediately following period or in the present century, is after his model. In this respect, Tyagaraja's stature in Telugu is comparable to Kalidasa's in Sanskrit.

Abut the Author:

Teacher, scholar, critic and musicologist, V. Raghavan (1908-79) was a recipient of many honours including the Padmabhushan and the Fellowship of the Sangeet Natak Akademi and the Sahitya Akademi. Author of over 900 research papers and 110 books, Dr. Raghavan's interests, in the words of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, "are not confined merely to Sanskrit literature and criticism. They are as wide as Indian culture itself." Dr. Raghavan has condensed an immense mass of compact but enlightening memoir in what has turned out to be his swansong.

K.R. Srinivasa Iyengar, teacher, scholar, critic and poet, and former Vice-President of the Sahitya Akademi, has contributed a Foreword, commending this book "for its hard unity of form and content, and for its vivid evocation of Tyagaraja as composer and singer and bhakta and Sadguru who tuned the Telugu language into divine poesy."

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
