ST08. A SONG DEDICATED TO HIS FATHER

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

SAINT THYAGARAJA

When the Saint sat
In his father’s seat
To worship the deities,
Tears rolled in his eyes.

“Oh Lord, bear with me
And have mercy on me,
If I’m not so sincere
As my father in my prayer.”

“You’re the Almighty
Also our family Deity.
You’re the life giver
Also the life Saver.”

“Out of my ignorance
I didn’t know this
Pardon my faults, Lord,
And take me to your fold.”

“Oh My Lord, Madhava,
You’re with your Sita
And your Lakshman
To bless every one.”

“You came on this earth
As incarnation of Truth.
You’re the only cause
That saved Viswamitra’s sacrifice.”

“You’re the dear friend
Of Hanuman, son of wind God,
Whoever surrenders to you,
You give asylum, it’s true.”

“Lord Brahma worships you.
Also what prompts you
To be a terrible Sun
To scorch all the sins.”

“With your louder voice
You can defeat the noise
Of thunder from clouds,
So strong is that of yours.”

“In fighting the demons
Your powers are matchless.
Oh Rama, the Supreme Lord,
You, the light of the world.”

“You’re the killer of Ravan
King of Lanka, the demon.
In Thyagaraja’s pure heart,
You reside, are you not?”

“As two eyes you own,
The moon and the sun,
You’re the husband
Of Janaki, Oh Lord!”

(The Saint sang this song in Telugu:
“Neevera kuladanamu sandhadamu,
Neevera Jeevanamu”.in Raga Begada)
