Great men appear from time to time as if sent by God for the
purpose of elevating humanity, Saint Thyagarajar was one such
extraordinary personality born to teach humanity the path of
salvation through Music and Ramabakthi. Thyagaraja's reputation as an outstanding
musician and composer was due to his desire to compose only to serve Rama and
not any human being. His contribution to the cultural growth in south India is
unique. He was a practical philosopher and dedicated his entire life to the
practice of NADOPASA. He had composed several Kritis in various raghas.
