Stotras as Kannada Padya

My good friend Sri Sheshadri Rao has been blessed by Sriman Acharyaru, and his tremendous bhakti in Madhva Siddhantha has made him and inspired him to write stotras as a Kannada Padya form.

In general we have seen translations are meanings of the stotras in textual form.  However, Sri Shesadri has been ordained to write all of them in a padya form so that it can be sung and at the same time it is understood by the layman like me.

  • The Kannada Padhya roopa of Sri Raayara Stotra was approved by Sri VignaanaNidhi teertharu
  • Sri Krishnaashtaka  is blessed by Sri VishwaPriya Teertharu
  • Sri Jayateertha Stotra  is blessed by Sri Sathyaathma Teertharu

Here is the list of the stotras in Kannada Padya Form:

    Kindly publish the original Samskruta shlock’s also along with or prior to the kanda padyas. Shri Sheshadri Rao has been truly ‘blessed’ by Shri Hari-Vayu-Gurugalu for being able to write such beautiful kanda-padyas. Namaskaragalu
