A mahAtmA by name Mysore Sri Shivarama Sastry lived over a hundred years ago in Mysore. He was initially employed in the Mysore Palace. Owing to strong dispassion he renounced householder’s life and became a recluse. He composed hundreds of songs in Kannada on the Vedantic theme. His compositions are extempore and bring out the profound tattva in instantly appealing poetry. Swami Paramananda Bharati took steps to publish about 150 of these songs and has also got them recorded rendered by expert musicians.
I have uploaded two sample songs. Pl. download from here:
Those who want to buy the two CDs, which are very affordably priced, may contact shankarAshrama, Bangalore, Phone 080 26670672.
I have deep appreciation for the compositions which Kannada-knowing people will surely like to benefit from.
