Aatmaatvam....Swarna Kamalam

As my blog caption I am here with a short song.

The piece is picked from the Telugu movie 'Swarna Kamalam' , one of the classics of director K.Vishwanath. The wonderful songs of the movie and the movie itself is overwhelming.

This piece is actually the lines of 'Shiva Manasa Pooja'(composed by Shankaracharya). I did a bit of research on the meaning of the lines.

You are my Self, Parvati is my intellect. My vital breaths are Your
attendants, My body is Your house, and all the pleasures enjoyed by
my senses are materials for Your puja. My sleep is Your state of
samaadhI. Wherever I walk, I am circumambulating You, Everything I
say is a hymn of praise to You, Everything I do is in devotion to
You oh Shambhu

Will try posting other songs of the movie very soon!

Here it goes...

Movie: Swarna Kamalam
Music: Ilayaraja
Originally sung by: Janaki

@lalitha: Thank you for your sweet comments. Will surely post the song of Deva Raagam.

@divya:May be the loudness of the track was not proper. Will post it properly. Thankoooo!

Nice one again :) Good feel and as I said, your pitching is good. What needs some polishing is the nuances, IMHO. Good luck!
