Another gem from the library of Musica Kerala and Indiana,
with a regal
dance by Sree Vidya.
Swati tirunalin Kaminee
Sapta swara sudha Vahini

O Eternal Music
Thou art the Beloved of Swati Tirunal,
The Monarch- Musician !
And the carrier
Of the Seven Octaves, Sapta Swaras !
The great Sages
Thyagaraja and Deekshitar
Awoke Thee from Thy slumber !
O Magnificent Temptress !
purandana dasante punya chinthayil
pushpotsavangal vidarthiya ranjinee
In the holy thoughts of Purandara Das
Thou gavest birth to the Festival of flowers !
Bhakta Meera than bhavana yamunayil
Mukta kallolam unarthiya Ragini !
O Music ! O Great Deity !
Thou awakened thoughts divine
In the imagination
Of the Bridal Mystic, Meera !
Prabhatha kantiyum praphala bhangiyum
Prafulla Nakshatra vyoma vyaptiyum
Sandhya Deeptiyum Saagara Shaktiyum
Sangeethame ! Ninnil Nirleenamallo!
O Glorious Music !
In Thee are innate
The beauty of morning
And beauty celestial
The glory of dusk, Sandhya
The puissance of oceans
And the twinkling of the stars
Are they not inherent
In Thee, O Perenniial Music ?
