Sage Annamacharya is an icon of Bhakthi in Carnatic Music. An ardent bhakth of Lord Venkateswara he reached abode of Lord Vishnu after singing 32,000 keerthanas in praise of The Lord. Of these 18,000 are known today and only 800 are being actively practised. The essence of Annamayya keerthanas is their Bhavam. Each keerthana oozes innermost feeling Annamayya had in his heart.
Sadhana Foundation is planning to conduct regular competitions in Music and Dance based on Annamayya keerthanas internationally to train and elicit the innermost feelings of children and youth for the Love they have for God.
