Shri Raghavendra Stotra or Shri Poornabhodha stotra lyrics

If you are a devotee of Shri Rayaru, there is no doubt you will know this song. Appanacharya as we all know, was the greatest disciple and also was very close to Sri Raghavendra Swami. At the time that Raghavendra Swami entered Brindavan, he was on the other side of the river Tungabhadra. Appanacharya wanted to be with his revered guru, but the river was flooding. He jumped into the Tungabhadra, singing Sri Poornabhodha stotra, realizing that if Raghavendra Swami could lead him across the ocean of samsara, a mere river could not hold him back. And he did cross the river safely, only to see that Raghavendra Swami had already entered Brindavan.

Appanacharya was in such a profound state of grief, that he could not finish the stotra he had started to compose-it was missing 7 aksharas. These final 7 aksharas came from inside the Brindavan. Not only did this show that Appanacharya’s Sri Poornabhodha had Raghavendra Swami’s approval, but it also showed that Raghavendra Swami was still with them. This was the first miracle he showed after entering Brindavan, and even today miracles happen to people who go to Mantralaya Brindavan to seek his blessings.

If you are interested in reading about Appanacharya, I found a useful link with pictures showing where he lived with Sri Rayaru. I also read in this site that Rayaru was fond of Dal Chatni( I am guessing it is Kadale Bele Chatni) & Appi Karada Payasa.

Sharanu Siddhi Vinayaka – Lyrics

Lord Ganesha as we all Hindus know, is worshiped on many religious and important occasions, especially at the beginning of marriages, buying a house. Dancers and musicians, particularly in southern India, begin performances of arts such as the Bharatnatyam dance with a prayer to Ganesha. So, here comes the lyrics for the famous Ganesha song by Shri Purandara Dasaru.

sharanu siddhi vinayaka sharanu vidyA pradAyaka
sharaNu parvati tanaya muruti sharaNu musika vahana

nitila netrana varada putrane nagabhusasa priyane
tatila tankita komalangane karna kundala dharane ||1||

batta muttina hara padaka bahu hasta catustane
itta todugeya hema kankaNa pasha ankusha dharane||2||

kuksi maha lambodarane iksu capana gelidane
paksi vahana siri purandara vittalana nija dasane||3||

sharanu siddhi vinayaka

Sri Madhwa Nama – Lyrics

As I mentioned in my previous post, 15th of this month is Madhwa Navami. So, here comes the lyrics for Madhwa Nama, which I learnt from my Father. The song is too big, so I was unable to add the lyrics in Kannada as I usually do. If you have installed Baraha.com, you can copy and paste the lyrics below and see it any language you wish in Baraha. I tried it in 4 languages, and they looked correct to me. You can also look at the lyrics in your language on dvaita.org web site here:

Here are some sample pictures I took for the lyrics in Kannada, Sanskrit, and Telugu.

Tangy and Spicy Gojju

This is the recipe which has been carried over for generations in our family. Both my Mysore Ajji, as well as Bangalore Ajji used to make this. My Mom does this, and I am doing it now. So, here comes the quickest, and easiest Gojju you can prepare.

Gojju

Ingredients:

  1. 5 tsp Tamarind extract
  2. 8 tsp Jaggery or Brown sugar
  3. 4 Green Chillies slit in the center
  4. 4-5 curry leaves
  5. 2 tsp Rasam powder or Sarina Pudi
  6. 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp urad dal, 1/2 tsp channa dal, 1/4 tsp turmeric or haldi, 1/2 tsp methi seeds
  7. salt to taste.

Method:

Mix the tamarind extract in water and make sure all the tamarind is dissolved. In a vessel, heat 3 tsp oil. Add all the ingredients one after another as listed in 6 above. Next, add the curry leaves, green chillies, and the tamarind pulp. Add rasam powder and also the jaggery and let it boil for 4-5 minutes. Finally, add salt to taste.

P.S: If the Gojju is too thin, add 1 tsp all purpose flour with little bit of water. Make sure there are no lumps and add it to the Gojju and boil for another 5-6 minutes. If the Gojju is too tang, you can always add more Jaggery.  So, taste and adjust the two of them.

Serve with Rice.
