V.Sanjeev Mridangam :
It is traditional to worship
the Lord alongwith his consort -"Shiva-Shakti" symbolises this tradition.
Lord Ekamreshwarar and Devi Kamakshi are enshrined in separate temples in
Kanchipuram. Kanchipuram is one of the "Pancha Bhoota Sthala"s where Lord
Shiva is worshipped as "Prithvi Lingam". Devi Kamakshi, the presiding deity
of Kanchipuram is one of the most famous shrines where Devi is worshipped
in the "Sri Chakra".
This album is dedicated to the worship of Shiva and Shakti in the form of
Lord Ekamreshwarar and Devi Kamakshi with compositions of Muttuswami Dikshitar,
Tamizh Nalvar Tevarams as well as Kamakshi Navavaranams of Oothukkadu Venkata
