vandE mAtaram. rAgA: ranjani. Adi tALA.

P: vandE mAtaram andi mAtaram
A: mundaDugiDu mana bhAvitaram pondudu-mAnanda-mandaram

merisenu muraLI svarAla andam murisenu kavi gAyaka brndam

Pallavi:
Vande Maataram: Prostration to the mother
Andi: Says, Maataram: our generation, Mundadugidu: Steps forward,

Our generation prostrate to the mother(India???)

Anupallavi:
Mana: Our, Bhaavitaram: next/future generation, Pondudu: will get/possess, Aananda:happy, Mandaaram: China rose

Our future generation will be happy- Here happiness has been attributed to China rose(hibiscus), mostly because china roses are red in colour which symbolises protection/security/happiness.

Charanam:
Virisenu: Blossomed, Bhuvipai: on earth, Aravindam:lotus, Kurisenu: Rained, manapai: on us, Makarandam: nectar, Merisenu: Flashed, murali:flute, Muresnu: become happy, Kavi(poet), Gayaka:Singer, Brindam:folks

All the earth looks blossomed and rain appears to be nectar, the sound of a flute soothing, all of which make the poets and an singers cheerful



Basically the song picturises everything in the subcontinent beautiful and happier..

Thanks Lakshman! That makes the kriti fully enjoyable

Rigapada/Kiran

Could you kindly translate too? Thanks!


Dear CML,
As I was out of station, I could not immediately help you. Here is a translation:
guruni smarimpumu. rAgA: hamsavinOdini. Adi tALA.

P: guruni smarimpumu = Think of the teacher, manasA = O mind,
sadguruni smarimpumu = Think of the true teacher,

A: gurutara bhuktitO = with intense devotion, jnAnnArtthi vagucu
= with desire for knowledge, parama sushIluDai
karuNAkaruDau =(a guru who is) compassionate with high and
proper virtues,


C1: gAyaka sArva bhaumAdi ghana birudAnkituDau = adorned
with great titles like 'gAyaka sArva bhaumA', an emperor among
musicians,
guNanidhini = an ocean of virtues,
shrIyutuDai = accompanied with excellence, sadA shiSya
samEtuDai = always accompanied by disciples, shrYamosagu =
one who gives happiness, shrI rAma krSNa sad (guruni) =
excellent (teacher) shrI rAma krSNa,

2: sakalAgma nigama sAra samyuta sangIta sAdhanatO = with
practice of music, the essence of all vedic scriptures,
sadgatikai
= for salvation, sadamala dharma niyama samyutuDai = always
with pure good deeds and principles,
sadA muraLI gAna
vilOluDau = always enjoying the music of the flute,

Gist:

P: O mind, think of the good teacher.

A: (Think) with intense devotion and desire for knowledge (of the
guru who is) virtuous and compassionate.

C1: (Think) of the excellent (Teacher) shri rAma krSNa, ( Sri
pArupalli rAma krSNayya pantulu, of Vijayawada) who is adorned
with titles like 'gAyaka sArva bhaumA', who is always
accompanied with disciples, who is an ocean of virtues and
excellence and one who gives happiness.

C2:(Think of the guru) with practice of music for salvation, music
which is the essence of all vedic scriptures. (Think of the guru
who) always enjoys the music of the flute, who always follows
pure good deeds and principles.

Thanks Rigapad

Each translation not only helps in the appreciation of the music but also brings an understnading of the language too (an unexpected bonus!)

You can find one in sangeethapriya.org; Posted there by Sri TV Gopalakrishnan

http://www.sangeethapriya.org/Downloads/bmk/3/bmk3.html

There is a commercial release too, where BMK sings 4 of his 'creations' - mahati, sumukham, lavangi and sarvasrI

Thank you Lakshman, kiransurya and rigapada for the songs and meaning. In vandE mAtaram (charaNam), makarandam is pollen, not nectar.

Do we have to discuss about the greatness of Dr.MBK? His contribution to CM is immense and immeasurable.Please listen to his Music Academy 1975 concert on the bicent. celebrations of Shri Muthuswami Dikshitar.A composition on him in the raga Sucharitram could pass off as a Dikshitar composition.So scholarly and profound.Yet another concert of his at the Music Club wherein he sings a wonderful RTP in Hamsadwani will bear my view that such an exercise is futile.I had the chance to hear his unforgetable Delhi concert in the company of Prof T.N.Krishnan and Shri K,Sivaraman.The profund impact of that concert full of Tyagaraja krithis is still lingering in my memory Any one has recording of that concert .......

hi coolkarni, do you by any chance have concerts of MBK with Lalgudi or Tnk violin accompaniment? Ofcourse other than the RTP Hamsavinodin concerts. I am very sure that some recordings with Lalgudi sung at Raga Tarangini are available.Any chance of getting these to share with this forum? Coolkarni I am sure you may be able to accede to my request. Bye Raghavan

Does anyone know to which line of shishyas of Tyagaraja (Tillisthanam, Walajapet, Umayalpuram) Sri BMK belongs?

Perhaps none of the three.
Tyagaraja, the great Carnatic composer spent most of his life in Tanjore district and trained several great musicians until he passed away in 1847. One of them was his cousin Akumalla (Manambuchavadi) Venkatasubbayya. During his lifetime Venkatasubbayya also attracted several students and one of them was Susarla Dakshinamurthy Sastry (1860-1917). Sastry’s devotion to music drove him to walk all the way to Tamilnadu from his native Krishna district. After learning music from Venkatasubbayya, Dakshninamurthy Sastry returned to Andhra Pradesh. Sastry was the first to bring the musical tradition of Tyagaraja to Andhra region and several students benefited from him. One of them was Parupalli Ramakrishnayya (1883-1951) who is known today as the guru of the eminent vocalist Dr. M. Balamuralikrishna.

Does it mean to say that there is a 4h school ( Andhra school) of Tyagaraja Kritis?

See http://www.hindu.com/fr/2006/12/08/stor ... 770300.htm for more info. We can call it the
Andhra branch of Sri Tyagarajaswamy tree.
One can listen to Sri Parupalli in surasa.net.

thamizh saying goes thus: kural iruppavarukku viral edaRku? When you have a fine voice, why go for an instrument? viral is fingers, so anything played with fingers...
