Background

However, kambakudi kullathu Aiyer in, whose book this was published gives a clear indication, for this to be his version of the song. He has written various Sanskrit poetry and his writing style tallies with the Ashtakam which is now sung in the sanctum sanctorum. The text with meaning is given in the above reference. It is a clarification by one of the researchers.

The others who claims it as lullaby, should understand the meaning of the text.

The first singers of Harivarasanam are from the bhajan singers of Purakkattu Anandeswaram  Siva Temple.

Konnakath Janakiyamm was 30 years old when she first heard Harivarasanam.  She was also pregnant at that time. It was her sixth child. She named him as AYYAPPAN.  After that she settled in Shasthamkotta in Kollam District in Kerala and continued to sing Harivarasanam.

Later devotees known as ‘Kalladakkoottam’ sang this song everywhere in Kerala and it became so popular.

In 1950s One of the Melshanthis started to recite this Ashtakam in ‘Sabarimala Nada’  everynight  after  ATHAZHA SEEVELI (A Ritual Proceeding after the devine dinner) as a song to sleep Ayyappa Swami.

Harivarasanam Song became more popular all over in South India when it included in the famous Malayalam Film Swami Ayyappan in 1975. The great singer K.J Yesudas sang the song and Dewarajan Master was the music director.

The lyrics is also included in the book HARIVARASANAM VISWAMOHANAM collected by Kambakkudi Kulathur Ayyar in 1963.The original author.

In 2007, one Mr, Suresh Madhav happened to glance upon the handwritten notes of Harivarasanam and  after that discovery, the great poetess Konnakath Janakiyamma became well popular.  She was extremely devout and her children and apparent generations have started to claim the authorship of the ashtakam, with a handwritten book of hers. The authorship of the lyrics is still not clarified. Having said that, She is also the author of the book   ‘AYYAPPA KEERTHANAM BHASHA GANAM’. One of the songs in this book is KARUNALAYA KARUNAKARA, and it is so popular.

Her another book is MANIKANDA STHAVABased on this claim, many people are claiming that, she sang Ayyappa to sleep. The Meaning of the song is something more than a mere lullaby. People have started to claim that, she must have gone to the sanctum sanctorum, and there was no bar to women prior. However, the claim also clearly states, that she gave it as an offering through her father Anantha krishna Iyer. M.
