Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 4
Just a glance is enough, O Krishna!
In this series, we present, each month, a prayer kirtan composed by His Holiness Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji. These kirtans underline the importance of prayers and beautifully show us how we should pray.
This month, we will look at a composition of Sri Swamiji, “Kadai Kannal Parthal”, in which he fervently prays to the Lord to grace him with just a glance from the corner of His eye for him to attain salvation. The song is in Tamil language and is set in Bimplaas raga and Adi tala.
