Sri Thyagaraja was one of the most important composers of Carnatic music. He is regarded as one of the "trinity" of Carnatic music composers, along with Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri. He was a devotee of Rama.
Sri Thyagaraja, the most celebrated Carnatic Music saint was a great devotee of Lord Sri Rama. Thyagaraja lived to the full extent that God realization is best achieved through Nadopasana (music with devotion). His songs are filled with an intimate devotion to Rama, all through revealing his deep understanding of the tenets of the Vedas and Upanishads.
Saint Purandaradas is considered as the grandfather of Carnatic Music. Sri Thyagaraja, along with Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri are considered as the "Trinity of Carnatic Music." Sri Thyagaraja has composed about 24,000 songs in his long devoted life to Lord Rama, most of them written in his Mother tongue Telegu, but a few in Sanskrit, including the masterpiece "Jagadanandakaraka" composed of 108 names describing Lord Rama's attributes.
The greatness of Sri Thyagaraja lies in the fact that his songs, like himself had a simplicity about them that added and complemented its rhythmic and melodious qualities. His innumerable compositions paved the way for the development of carnatic music in South India and have educated generations successively and traditionally in music in South India.
I purchased abour 25 nos. of Mahalaxmi idol from Thejus last year to be given as a gift to my close friends and relatives on the occasion of my daughter's wedding. Everyone appreciated my gift idea and they have also taken the address of Thejus showroom in Chennai. We are really impressed with the quality and presentation of the idols displayed in the showroom and will continue to do shopping in the near future for the forthcoming wedding of second daughter and also other occasions in the family. In fact few of my friends and relatives have already purchased from Thejus since last year after our regerence. Keep up the good work and come up with more innovations.
