dhUrjaTi was one of the preeminent poets of medieval telugu literature. He was a member of the great group of poets popularly dubbed as aShTadiggajamulu. He was a staunch devotee of Siva. dhUrjaTi lived during the middle of the sixteenth century CE 1480-1545 and was a native of the southern telugu town of Sree kALahasti in the present day Chittoor district. He referred to this area as pottapinADu after the earlier cOLa kingdom based at pottapi in Cuddapah Dt. trivia Before that for more than a thousand years Cuddapah and some parts of Chittoor area were known as hiraNya rAShTram and other parts of Chittoor area were known as vengO rAShTram . His parents were singama ramA nArAyaNa and jakkaya nArAyaNa. The names indicate that he could have been a vaiShNava before he became a strong Saiva. He was a major poet in a galaxy of poets in the court of the emperor Sree Krishna Deva Raya. He wrote two important works viz. SreekALahasti mAhAtmyamu a Bhakti prabandham and SreekALahasteeSwara Satakamu a Saiva Satakam. These two are perhaps the best within their genres. Many cAtuvu poems in popular lore were said to have been written by him or about him. In a famous praise of dhUrjaTi emperor kRShNa dEva rAya wondered stutamatiyaina yAndhra kavi dhUrjaTi palkula kEla galgenO yatulita mAdhuree mahima True to the praise dhUrjaTi is unique in bringing out incomparable atulita sweetness mAdhuryam in both his poetic works. Of course the same extempore cATuvu poem attributed to tenAli rAma kRShNa impishly describes hA telisen Bhuvanaika mOha nOddhata sukumAra janatA Ghana tApa hAri saMtata madhurAdharOdita sudhA rasa dhArala grOluTaMjumee that dhUrjaTi s poems are so sweet because of all the sweet honey he drank from the lips of many bold and beautiful vAra kAntas courtesans
