Notation:
Notation available here at Shivkumar Kalyanaraman's Krithi Archive. Also, listen to the music class here.


Other information:
This song has a double meaning. Tyagaraja sings Seeta is my mother (amma), Rama is my father (tandri), referring both to Lord Rama with his wife Seeta and also to his own parents, his mother Seetamma and his father Ramabrahmam.
