After, Naivedya, Mangalaruthi, and Lakshmi Aarathi.


Shravana Shukravara Lakshmi pooja is performed on all the Friday’s. This year it is performed on August 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd.

I have scanned and attached a document which has the complete details on performing Sri Lakshmi Pooja during Fridays and also Shravana Masa. This shouldn’t be confused for Sri VaraMahaLakshmi Vrata. I will post a separate post providing all details for Sri VaraMahaLakshmi Vrata.

This document has all the details from doing the Achamana, to Sankalpa, Dhyana, Naivedya, and Maha Mangalarathi.

It is a PDF document and is in Kannada.

Shree Raghavendra Sthavana

This is one of the oldest lyrics I have in my book given to me by my Late Grandfather. It has the lyrics for Shree Raghavendra Sthavana. I learned the lyrics by my Mom.

During the Aaradhane the past three days, I was reciting this to our beloved Rayaru. My Husband recorded it today during the evening pooje. Attached is the video for the same. I will post the lyrics as and when I get time.

Update: Shri Raghavendra Swamy Purvaradhana/Madhyaradhana Pictures

Please take a look at the Shri Raghavendra Swamy urvaradhana/Madhyaradhana pictures from Mantralaya. Just amazing. And a billion thanks to SRSMUTT for the links.
