Hari hari stotram(Tamil)


Hari hari stotram (Tamil)

Translated by

P.R.Ramachander

(This is a very folk/popular method of reciting BHagawatha or story of Krishna effortlessly. Housewife’s of the by gone age used to get immersed in god by reciting this stotra , when they were doing hard work. The simple diction and the moving story used to bring tears in their eyes some times but one thing was sure. They never felt the burden of their work. Also they were doing effortless nama Smaranam of Hari.
As a child I used to hear this daily from my maternal grand mother. Early morning she used toi go to the river for bathing. She would perhaps start reciting this musical and enchanting story on her way back. It used to get over along with her cooking and Pooja. In spite of my best efforts I was not able to get the lyrics of this prayer. I got it last month as a supplement to the women’s magazine in Tamil called Mangayar Malar. I have tried my best to kreep the musical tempo in my translation. I request people who do not  know Tamil to recite in English. I am dedicating this translation to my grand mother Ammu Patti of Ayilur, Kerala)
