#5-The Specialities in the Krithis of Sri.Muthuswamy Dikshitar

Dikshitar compositions may be described as the products of a mood of contemplation and meditation (dhyana) and reflect the solemnity of the vast inner silence.  Behind the marvel of architectural design in sound, there is, in the depth of the songs of Dikshitar, a sense of sublimation, an experience of self-realisation. Every krithi of his may be likened to a Temple, in which the raga installed in the sanctum sanctorum (garbha griha) is situated in the innermost part and is to be reached through the various prakaras.
