Dear BhakthAs :

I would like to share with you a krithi 
which salutes the three Rahasyams dear to 
Sri VaishNavaas . At the outset , let me ease
your minds by pointing out that this krithi of mine 
does NOT deal with the inner meanings of these Rahasyams ,
but only pays tribute to the glory of these  Rahasyams .
Palalvi , Anu pallavi and CharaNam sections
deal with AshtAksharam , Dhvayam and Charama
slOkam respectively .

The Krithi can be sung in Raagam , KalyANi .
The pallavi section alone can also be set in 
the Raagam-ThAnam-Pallavi format .

Pallavi :      Namakkini BhayamEthu 
               Naathan Naamam sollum 

Anu Pallavi :  sErkkum ThirumahaL aruLAl
               NaaraNan pAthangaL paRRiya ( namakkini )

CharaNam :     DharmangaL yellaam tavirtthu 
               avanE gathi yena nadanthu 
               paDum thyuar yellaam azhinthu
               Aananthak kadalil moozhki niRkum (Namakkini )

(Meaning for tamil Text )
************************* 

Pallavi : For us , who recite our Lord's sacred
name , where is the occasion for fear anymore  ?

Anu pallavi : For us , who have arrived at the sacred 
feet of NarAyaNan through the intercession of Sri Devi ,
where is the occasion for fear anymore ?

CharaNam : Relinquishing all DharmAs and taking refuge 
in Him alone ,liberated from all sorrows , we stand 
immersed in the ocean of bliss . For us , who have thus
performed SaraNAgathi ,where is the occasion for fear 
anymore ?

P.S : It will be wonderful , if Musicians in our
group like Sri Mani Varadarajan can set it to Music .
