Music becomes divine when the bhavas or meanings are understood in its real sense and when emotions start erupting within every soul. These songs are in Telugu language, to make the listener know its meaning a translation of the Kritis is given in word format.
Listen and feel the ecstasy what the saint felt so many years ago. Every kriti with its unique raga and style will certainly bring out the divine within us!

charaNa shEsham: Oh Rama! The lord who prescribed and identified the mark of a good man! You patiently waited and accepted my worship
You asked me not to be angry. You thought me that I should not mix with those who do not love god. You thought me to be patient in the face of adversities;
You gave the virtue of controlling the senses and meditating peacefully.
Despite all this you are yet to come to this worshiper of your Shri Tyagaraja.
