The Dasa Sahitya Project propagates and popularises the literature of the saint composers of Karnataka, popularly known as Karnataka Haridasas, who enriched Kannada religious literature with their hymns.
Karnataka Haridasas who brought the esoteric Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas within the reach of the common man in lyrical form in simple Kannada, composed thousands of hymns in praise of Lord Sri Venkateswara, thus preaching devotion of God.
Purandaradasa, Kanakadasa, Vijayadasa, Sripadaraja, Vyasaraja, Vadiraja, Gopaladasa and Jagannathadasa were some of the luminaries in the galaxy of Karnataka Haridasas who treaded the path of dualism paved by Sri Madhwacharya. This lineage of Karnataka Haridasas has produced around 400 saint-composers.
The Dasa Sahitya Project aims at acquainting people with the lives and teachings of Karnataka Haridasas; spirituality, righteousness and morals preached by them, thus inculcating devotion in general and devotion to Lord Sri Venkateswara in particular.
