(Click on the above link for the full poem)

You have an excellent website. My humble salutes to you for putting all this together.

One question, I don't have any background in music, but wonder is there any pattern which should be followed if one wants to sing the stuti you have given in this post. It will be good if I can sing it in a way which is pleasing rather than read the "dohas" (pardon if they are called something else). For e.g., should I sing each line of the doha twice and repeat the first doha after every two dohas? I hope you get the idea. Please let me know if you have any insight into this. Mail me at

Har Har Mahadev!

Dear Hitesh:

These poems are generally called as chandas, and not dohaa. Dohaa will be a type of chandas.

As far as we know, most of the poems in Vinayapatrikaa or Kavitavali of Tulsidas are associated with some raaga. For example, this piece is associated with Raaga Vasanta:

Thanks for the reply.

How do I open the link you gave? Do I need some plugin\software for that?

BTW, I love stutis from Tulsidas ji. They are easy to learn, recite, and understand. Please post more if you can.

.itx file can be opened in notepad or any text editor. It is a text file.

We also love stutis of Shri Tulsidas.

Wishing well,

Do I need some font installed to view it correctly? I see text like following:

\let\usedvng=\Largedvng % for 1 column
\def\engtitle#1{\hrule\medskip\centerline{\large #1}}
\def\itxtitle#1{\medskip\centerline{\LARGEdvng #1}\medskip\hrule}
\begin{document}\engtitle{.. gosvaamii tulasiidaasa kRita vinayapatrikaa ..}##
\itxtitle{.. gosvaamii tulasiidaasa kR^ita vinayapatrikaa ..}##\endtitles##

Using this software one can convert the .itx files into Hindi font files.

Sorry about the late reply. Our blog-volunteer was away due to personal reasons (and will get away again).

Yes, itrans text can be processed by Latex-Itrans package to produce devanagari.

Our workflow uses Latex-Sanskrit package of Charles Wikner, which is similar to (but not the same as) iTrans.

Wishing well,
