Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 14

When I fall down, O Mother! Come and lift me up.

PrayerIn 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.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa saw Goddess Kali as his Mother and completely surrendered unto her. Unto the Divine Mother Sri Radha Devi, our Swamiji sings this beautiful kirtan, “Sarukki vizhum samayangal” set in Shanmukhapriya Raga, in a similar bhava (spiritual mood).
