Sri Raghavendra Kavacham

What a coincidence;I am a great devotee of Sri Raghavendra Swamy, and this is the 100th post on my blog and it is on Sri Raghavendra Swamy. Thanks to all of you who visit my blog and comment with so many messages which is a great inspiration for me; and which of course keeps me going.

Thanks to you all.

As requested by many of you who visit this blog, here are the lyrics for Sri Raghavendra Kavacham by Sri Appanacharya.

    Venkat, you can find aksharmala song on http://www.tatvavada.org/audio/
    This is sung by Mantralaya Pada Yatra Sanga of Dharwad. This is also sung
    by Vidyabhushana you must be able to find it in a religious cassete store. Let
    me know if you are looking for Vidyabhushana version and not able to find it.
