A web series on 108 Divya Desam temples was launched by well known Carnatic musician S. Saketharaman about two weeks ago.
Saketharaman, who is a resident of Alamelumangapuram, Mylapore says, “About two weeks ago, I started with the temples in North India. Before I start every session, I give a small talk on the significance of the Divya Desam temple, the pasuram in the Divya Prabandham associated with that temple, which Azhwar has composed it and the meaning of the pasuram”.
He says since many of the pasurams were composed by the Azhwars between the 5th and 9th century AD, sometimes it becomes difficult to understand the meaning of the pasuram. Explaining the meaning makes it more easier to appreciate the song, he adds.
The series is free for all and will be screened on his youtube channel www.youtube.com/SaketharamanSingsForYou on Fridays at 6 p.m. For details contact him at email@example.com.
