Please consider adding info to the Link regarding SRI SONTI VENKATA RAMANNAYA[edit]

If you are knowledgeable in the topic, consider giving the guru Sri sonti venkata ramannaya's page some info and citations. He deserves more recognition. | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iamtheone21 (talkcontribs) 04:51, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Saint Title[edit]

Tyagaraja is popularly referred as Saint Tyagaraja. Saint is not limited to Christian tradition. I wonder why the heading is changed.

Biography assessment rating comment[edit]

Place of Birth![edit]

Is it Thiruvarur or Thiruvaiyar? Could someone please check? Nattu 00:06, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

It's Thiruvarur.

Why "Saint"? Why not "Sri"? Last I heard, "Saint" was a title given by the Pope. I'm changing it to "Sri" forthwith; please mention any objections here before reverting. Ambarish 08:59, 14 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Saint is not a title confined to conferement by Pope. Nattu 00:08, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Any comments on the form of Telugu used by Tyagaraja? - Srikanth

Sri is a title given to contemprory persons, who have specialised in their fields and hence achieved recognition.
Whereas "Saint" is a title given to people who have "Realised" God or felt that Supreme Reality. I am sorry to state that your point in stating that "Saint" has to do with Christian Religion is very disapponting. If you have listened to [AIR]'s National Programme of music, the announcers say like this "... you were listening to the composition of Saint Thyagaraja......" Not Sri Tyagraja.
Moreover, changing it to Sri is belittling his achievements and his sainthood. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ramananrv123 (talkcontribs)

Tya?[edit]

Why spelled as 'Tya'? Should it not be Thya?.

Yes, why no Thya? Does it not confuse with T as in Tin?. I know Th is use for aspirated sound, but that is better than 'Tin' sound. --192.193.171.152 (talk) 19:45, 3 December 2010 (UTC) Kumar

Me too..Its odd..I think the standard spelling used in all publications use "THYAGARAJA".... can give some support links or evidences..but i dont suppose anywone would disagree.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.222.165.65 (talk) 15:18, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Missing reference[edit]

The article should mention Purandaradasa who is regarded as the founder of Carnatic music. The conspicuous omission of his name is rather puzzling. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Antinatter (talkcontribs) 14:30, 9 January 2009 (UTC)


S.R.Aniruddha (talk) 16:49, 2 January 2012 (UTC)PLEASE READ:- Purandaradasa is not the founder of Carnatic music, Tyagaraja, Mutthuswami Dikshitar and Shama Shastry are the thrimurthis who were the founders of Carnatic music. Purandaradasa was the founder of music in KARNATKA, not the founder of Carnatic music.:)

Proposal to remove audio links[edit]

Wikipedia is not a search engine, portal or repository. Encyclopaedic content is what should be in here. In this context, YouTube videos do not seem to be appropriate to include. Moreover, for each song, there are 1000s of renditions. Why should one be chosen specially over others in the context of Encyclopedia? I propose that all audio links be removed from this and other similar pages. VasuVR (talk, contribs) 05:43, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
