Narayana Teertha (1675 - 1745)

Sri Narayana Teertha, ascetic and scholar, was born in Andhra Desa. Prior to his ascetic vow (Sanyasam), his name was Tallavajjhala Govinda Sastry.

Attaining mastery over all the six Sastras, he went to Varanasi, the seat of sages and learned men, to propagate his spiritual knowledge and philosophy. After some years he settled down at Varahur on the banks of the Kaveri in Tamil Nadu. On the way down to south, he visited several holy places and sang the glory of the deities graced in different temples .

As he was an ardent devotee of Sree Krishna,he encapsulated his spontaneous outpourings in " Tarangas' . Sree Krishna Leela Tarangini, his magnum opus is an unparalleled musical treatise consisting many Slokas and Krutis in 12 chapters known asTarangas. These compositions, famous for lyrical richness and beauty of rhythm, evoke the nine 'Rasas' and form an integral part of Indian classical dance.

The Tarangas depict the life and childhood pranks (leelas) of Sree Krishna and culminate in the auspicious wedding "Rukmini Kalyanam". Leela Suka's "Sree Krishna Karnamrutham", Jayadeva's "Geeta Govindam" and Narayana Teertha's "Sree Krishna Leela Tarangini" constitute the precious triumvirate that elevate the devout to a world of spiritual ecstasy
