Saint Tyagaraja stands tallest among the Music Trinity of Carnatic Music in South India and is one of the great immortals of the world. His compositions are prodigious, and the mode of appeal to his Lord Rama absorbing, poignant and soul-stirring from the most intimate and endearing to the most philosophical. The diction is superlative yet simple. His compositions are noted for their superior structure, superb handling of ragalakshanas and apt choice of raga and words. They are outpourings of love, prayer and appeal. His life is an epitome of nobility, absolute devotion and virtue. He dedicated his entire life to the practice of NADOPASANA. He was one such extraordinary personality born to teach humanity the path of salvation through Music and Ramabakthi.
Tyagaraja has left behind the immense wealth of his compositions and it is the duty of every musician to pay their homage to the great Saint by rendering his compositions with bhava with an understanding of the meaning of the compositions. The world of Carnatic music owes a lot to Tyagaraja for the treasure that he is bestowed on them through his Ganaraga Pancharathna Kritis â€" his magnum opus.
