     Narayana  theertha (1610-1745) was born in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh . He went to Varanasi to gain mastery over Vedas   and Sastras   , took SAnyasa and later   settled in Varahur, THanjavur district of Tamil Nadu.  ( A great introduction to this great composer by THiruvayaru  Krishnan has beed added by  me today - http://translationsofsomesongsofcarnticmusic.blogspot.in/2017/04/sri-narayana-teerthas-musical-magnum.html ) He was a great composer and his magnum opus is a  book called “Sri Krishna Tharangini” .His compositions are mellifluous, simple and steeped in devotion to Lord Krishna. I have translated few of his famous Krithis  , which are given below in Alphabetical order :-
