Dasa Sahithya Project

Dasa Sahitya Project : Dasa Sahitya Project was promoted by TTD, Tirupathi in 1979.  The project aims to preserve, conserve and propagate the Haridasa Bhakthi movement pioneered by the great Narahari Tirtha and Sripadarajaru during 14th and 15th Century in Karnataka.
Literature of the Haridasas is so vast as to embrace all the aspects of Indian Culture.  Philosophical truths contained in the Upanishads, Bhagavata or other Puranas and Vedic Sciences.  Haridasas have adopted Carnatic Music, great heritage of musical lore as the medium of such a copious literature.   It has one central thought to convey to the world and that is HARI BHAKTI.


It is but proper that HARI BHAKTI is the inner spirit of this great literature.


Sri Sripadaraja who flourished in 15th century has composed a number of songs in Kannada.
