Lyrics of Ramadasu Keerthana Idigo Bhadradri with Meaning

Kancharla Gopanna, popularly known as Bhakta Ramadasu or Bhadrachala Ramadasu, was an ardent devotee of Lord Rama. He lived in the 17th Century CE (Current Era) and composed around 200 Keertanas (songs) on Rama in Telugu language. He constructed Sita Ramaswamy temple at Bhadrachalam during his tenure as Tahsildar of the place.

In his composition 'Idigo Bhadradri' he describes the magnificence of Bhadrachalam temple.

Idigo Bhadradri Gautami adigo choodandi - 2
mudamuto Sita mudita Lakshmanulu kalisi koluvaga Raghupati yundedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Charu swarna prakara gopura dwaramulato sundaramai yundedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Anupamaanamai atisundaramai danaru chakramu dhaga dhaga merisedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Kaliyugamanduna ilavaikunthamu nalaru (vaikunthamuna + alaru) chunnadi nayamuga mrokkedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Ponnala pogadala poo podarindlanu chennu meegadanu srungarambadu

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Srikaramuga Ramadasunu prakatamuga broche prabhu vasamu

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Lyrics in Telugu


Here is Bhadradri i.e Bhadrachalam. There is River Gautami (Godavri), have a look.

This the abode of Raghupati (Rama) who is residing with wife Sita and brother Lakshmana.

The temple looks beautiful with gold entrance gates and walls.

The beauty of the glittering Chakra (the celestial disc) is unparalleled.

Prostrate the abode of Lord Vishnu (i.e Vaikuntham) on Earth of this Kaliyuga (an era in Hinduism).

The beautiful flower garden with flower of Punnaga flowers and Pogada flowers looks like a creamy flower house.

This is the abode of Ramadasu's Lord - the protector of all.

The last line of all Ramadasu Keertanas invariably contains his name.

Listen to the Keertana sung by Balakrishna Prasad.

This Keertana is usually sung on Sri Ramanavami day

"Dharmecha, ardhecha, kamecha, nati charitavyeti, data vadet, nati charatavya - Nati Charami"
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"

These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.
