Dasa Sahitya (ದಾಸ ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ) Homepage

Sri Digvijaya Raamo vijayate (ಶ್ರೀ ದಿಗ್ವಿಜಯ ರಾಮೋ ವಿಜಯತೆ)

Hari sarvothama Vaayu Jeevothama (ಹರಿ ಸರ್ವೋತ್ತಮ ವಾಯು ಜೀವೊತ್ತಮ).

Namaskara and greetings – Welcome to “Dasa Sahitya” webpage.

The haridasas and haridasa sahitya needs no introduction and there is an enormous amount of information freely available on the internet. What is lacking is a single website listing the songs and lyrics of the respective dasas. This is a humble attempt to bring together as many songs as possible of these great men and women. Being a Cardiologist by profession, life is busy and hectic to say the least! But I have always found peace and great pleasure by knowing / listening to these literary gems. I hope you will equally enjoy this great wisdom passed on to us through the generations.

I am proud and equally humbled by  the fact that our family tree traces back more than 250 years to include Four Uttaradi Mutt Swamigalu (Sri Satyabodha Thirtha (1744-1783), Sri Satyasandha Thirtha (1783-1794), Sri Satyavara Thirtha (1794-1797) and Sri Satyaparayana Tirtha (1841-1863).
