Kapadu Sri SatyaNarayana Lyrics

The lyrics for this famous song Kapadu Sri SatyaNarayana was provided by Mr. ನಾಗೇಶ್ ಕುಮಾರ್. ತುಂಬ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು ನಾಗೇಶ್ ಕುಮಾರ್ ಅವರೇ.  I just copied and pasted from your comment on the lyrics page into this post.

ಸತ್ಯಾತ್ಮ ಸತ್ಯ ಕಾಮ ಸತ್ಯ ರೂಪ ಸತ್ಯ ಸಂಕಲ್ಪ
ಸತ್ಯ ದೇವ ಸತ್ಯ ಪೂರ್ಣ ಸತ್ಯಾನಂದ

ಕಾಪಾಡು ಶ್ರೀ ಸತ್ಯನಾರಾಯಣ
ಪನ್ನಗ ಶಯನ ಪಾವನ ಚರಣ
ನಂಬಿಹೆ ನಿನ್ನ

ನಾರಾಯಣ ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿನಾರಾಯಣ
ನಾರಾಯಣ ಸತ್ಯನಾರಾಯಣ

ಮನವೆಂಬ ಮಂಟಪ ಬೆಳಕಾಗಿದೆ
ಹರಿನಾಮದಾ ಮಂತ್ರವೇ ತುಂಬಿದೆ
ಎಂದೆಂದು ಸ್ತಿರವಾಗಿ ನೀನಿಲ್ಲಿರು
ನನ್ನಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದಾಗಿ ಉಸಿರಾಗಿರು

ನನಗಾಗಿ ಏನನ್ನು ನಾ ಬೇಡೆನು
ಧನಕನಕ ಬೇಕೆಂದು ನಾ ಕೇಳೆನು
ಈ ಮನೆಯು ನೀನಿಇರುವ ಗುಡಿಯಾಗಲಿ
ಸುಖ ಶಾಂತಿ ನೆಮ್ಮದಿಯ ನೆಲೆಯಾಗಲಿ

ಕಣ್ಣೀರ ಅಭಿಷೇಕ ನಾ ಮಾಡಿದೆ
ಕರುನಾಳು ನೀ ನನ್ನ ಕಾಪಾಡಿದೆ
ಬರಿದಾದ ಮಡಿಲನ್ನು ನೀ ತುಂಬಿದೆ
ನಾ ಕಾಣದಾನಂದ ನೀ ನೀಡಿದೆ.

And here is the lyrics in English in Baraha. Copy and paste into Baraha to convert to your regional language.

The Ganesha festival falls on the fourth day Bhadrapada Masa. That’s why we say “Bhadrapada Shulkada Chauthi Aamdu”. Swarna Gouri Vrata and Ganesha Festival is celebrated on Thursday August 28th and Friday August 29th 2014.

As always, check your closet temple to find the correct dates.

An idol of Gowri made of clay is brought two days before the Ganesha festival. Gowri is an incarnation of Parvathi. Gowri Habba, also called as Swarna Gowri Habba is celebrated one day before Ganesha Festival.

The Legend:

Goddess Gowri, while taking shower, created Ganesha out of the mud of and placed him at the entrance of the house. She told him not to allow anyone to enter while she went inside for a bath. Lord Shiva returned home and was stopped by Ganesha at the gate. Shiva became angry and cut off Ganesha’s head. When Gauri came to know of this she was grieved.

Lord Shiva ordered his servants to cut off and bring to him the head of any creature that might be sleeping with its head facing north. The servants went on their mission and found only an elephant in that position. Lord Shiva then joined the elephant’s head onto the body of Ganesha.

Mr. Lakshmisha P, had left a comment here that he had the pdf files for the Swarnagowri vratha puja & katha. Attached below are the links for both the pdf files he has provided.
Thanks so much Me. Lakshmisha for all the support and also the time you have taken to convert this into pdf.

We used to sing at the top of our voice “Ganesha bhanda, kai kadubu tinda, chikka kerele edda, dodda kereli bidda”.

Lord Ganesha is not just worshiped on this day, but is worshiped first in all occasions since he is considered to be the remover of all obstacles, one who brings good luck on new activities or endeavors.

As always links for several resources songs, lyrics and stotras are posted on this blog.

And here comes the link which has colorful and many designs for drawing Rangoli

And can any festival be complete without authentic dishes? Here are some recipes posted in this blog:

In case you see the moon on this day, here is the sloka you are supposed to say:

ಚೌತಿ ಚಂದ್ರ ದರ್ಶನ ಅಪವಾದ ಪರಿಹಾರಕ್ಕಾಗಿ

ಸಿಂಹಃ ಪ್ರಸೇನಮವಧೀತ್
ಸಿಂಹೋ ಜೌ0ಬವತಾ ಹತಃ |
ಸುಕುಮಾರಕ ಮಾರೋದಿಃ
ತವಹ್ಯೇಷ ಸ್ಯ್ಮಮಂತಕಃ ||

Simha prasenamavadith
simho jambhuvatha hathah |
sukumaraka marodhihi
thavahyesha syamanthakaha ||

P.S: The above sloka in Kannada is exactly as it is in the Uttaradi Matta Panchanga. Rather than taking a picture, I typed in the words. The English translation is done from the Kannada sloka to the best of my knowledge.

As always no food is prepared with onion or garlic.

Many of you have asked for the Pooja Vidhana of the festival, I do have the book for Ganesha festival, and it is several pages. I had no time at all to translate it into English. So, here is the link for the pooja vidhanas for both Gowri and Ganesha pooja. Hopefully I will have them next year.

P.S: If you have a scanned copy of the Ganesha Vrata Pooja Vidhana, please share. I can post it here.
