I received an email from a mailing list which I have subscribed, which had links to several books on Hinduism. As I was browsing through the content of the web site which had several important books scanned, I found this simple and very well explained book which has details of all the festivals, the rituals which needs to be followed and so on.. This book is in Kannada. You can read the book online or even download a PDF file, whichever is convenient to you all.
Attached below is the link for the book:
P.S: The details for all the many festivals coming during Shravan Masa starts from page 32 onwards.
During my last visit to India in September-October 2009, my Aunt Ms. Jayu Shamarao presented me a book on “Hari Kathamruta Sara” by Sri Jaganatha Dasaru. This was the best gift I had received in all these years. Thanks so much Jayu Aunty.
As soon as I received this book, I had decided to work on putting this highly revered text online in Kannada and English(Baraha) to help many in the dvaita community.
I have a seperate page called “ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ಕಥಾಮೃತ ಸಾರ – Sri Hari Kathamruta Sara” which will be updated as and when I get time. The main page here will also be updated to inform the readers that a new Stanza or Sandhi has been added.
Sri Jagannatha Dasaru in this composition has explained the gradation among the Gods. And with one supreme God; Lord Vishu. The various stanzas explain this concept, first being lord Vishnu, followed by Lakshmi, than Brahma and Vayu, and later comes Garuda, Shesha and so on..
This composition provides a very basic and better understanding of the Gradation of Gods, and is done in very simple explanations.
For the first Stanza, the one which must be chanted at the beginning of each and every Sandhi, please check the “ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ಕಥಾಮೃತ ಸಾರ – Sri Hari Kathamruta Sara” page.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
P.S: This whole composition is in Kannada, so please no translation in any other language other than English.
