Tyagaraja Swami composed a set of songs to sing collectively or as a chorus, as an expression of bhakthi and bhajana tradition. These came to be known as Divya Nama Sankeerthanas. Many of these songs have the theme as Ramayana , but there are also songs on human conduct. There are around 118 krithis which are set to simple tunes. We find that the tune repeats in every charanam after the Pallavi. So, it can be inferred that every song has a Pallavi followed by several Charanams. This style of composing is generally referred to as Lambaka Style. The simple rhythmic tunes make them ideal for group rendition.
These krithis basically deal with Nama Mahatmya. ……

Sri Sankara meets his Guru Govindapadar, who was in deep meditation in a cave on the banks of the Narmada. On seeing the small boy, the Saint asks hims who he was. It was in response to this simple question that Sri Sankara burst out in a set of ten pregnant stanzas explaining the real nature of the Self which alone he was. The Saint realising that Sri Sankara was a realised soul, who had come to him for initiation only to conform to the normal method of entering the Sannyasa Order, immediately accepted him as a disciple. Shri Shankara sums up the essence of Vedanta in dasashloki .
May Shri Shankara leads us from ignorance to Truth by helping us realize the aatman.
