Sharanu Sharanayya – Lyrics

This is another song we used to sing while doing Namaskaras to the Lord. Trust me we used to do 23 namaskaras as said in this song. :)

Here comes the lyrics in Kannada and English. If you have Baraha installed, let me know. I can send you the script for this song which you can translate to any other language. I am slowly becoming an expert in Baraha as well.

Sharanu Sharanayya sharanu benaka
needayya baalella belaguvaa belaka
ninna nambida janake ihudayya yella sukha

sooryanedurali manju karaguva reeti

benaka benaka ekadanta
pachegallu panimetalu oppuva Vigneshwara
ninage ippatmoru namaskaragalu ||3||

Gajamukhane Ganapathiye – Lyrics

You can hear this song every where during Lord Ganesha festival. My sister and I used to sing this with great devotion to the Lord as well. So, here comes the lyrics for the most popular song sung during this festival. As always, in Kannada, and followed by English. The book I have is very old, and so the picture is a little blur. However, you can see the translated lyrics in English as well.

Rave Unde-Rava Laddoo

Rave Unde

Rave Unde

Who doesn’t like Rave Unde made out of pure ghee right? I never use ghee in any of my cooking, but when preparing this sweet dish for Lord Krishna during Janmasthami, I could not deny ghee for the Lord. I prepared Ghee with 3 sticks of unsalted butter, and made Rave Unde and Besan Unde; used just 1/2 of the ghee. Anyway, here comes the recipe for quick and easy Rave Unde. Just remember, I did this for the first time, and the you can see the results in the above picture. It was very tasty too.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fine Rava or Sooji
  • 1 cup powdered Sugar
  • 9-10 cloves
  • 1/4 cup of Raisins and cashew nuts
  • Cardamom or Elaichi Powder to taste
  • less than 1/4 cup Ghee

Method:

  1. Put the Ghee in a thick bottom pan.
  2. Next, when the ghee is hot enough, add raisins, cashew nuts, and cloves and fry on medium heat until the raisins plump. They almost become double of their size.
  3. Next, in the same pan, along with the raisins, nuts and cloves fry the Sooji also on medium heat until a nice aroma comes. Just like you do for Kesari Bath.
  4. Make sure the Sooji doesn’t get burned or change color.
  5. This might take around 15-20 minutes of frying.
  6. Next, add the powdered sugar and ground cardamom powder and mix all these well.
  7. When the mixture is cool to handle, sprinkle a few drops of Milk and make Ladoo

Another look at the yummuy laddos offered to the Lord.

Amazing Video and Photo of Tirupati Venkateswara Balaji

I happened to see quite a few of the links from my blog going to the page at India Divine web site, when I was checking my dashboard. So, I knew it was something related to my posts, and clicked on the link. I was shocked to see what was in store there. An amazing picture of Lord Venkateshwara. As they say” Two eyes are not enough to see that picture”. And to top it all, a rare video which shows Abhisheka being done to Lord Venkateshwara in Tirupathi. It was just mind blowing.

So, I am sharing the link with you all, so that you can as well enjoy this rare moment of seeing the Lord.
