Updated lyrics provided by Ms. Bhavana Damle.

ರಾಗ: ಹಂಸಧ್ವನಿ ತಾಳ:ಆದಿ ರಚನೆ: ಶ್ರೀ ಪುರಂದರದಾಸರು

ಗಜವದನ ಬೇಡುವೆ | ಗೌರೀತನಯ
ಗಜವದನ ಬೇಡುವೆ
ತ್ರಿಜಗವಂದಿತನೆ ಸುಜನರ ಪೊರೆವನೆ ||ಪ||

ಪಾಶಾಂಕುಶಧರ ಪರಮಪವಿತ್ರ
ಮೂಷಿಕವಾಹನ ಮುನಿಜನಪ್ರೇಮ ||೧||

ಮೋದದಿ ನಿನ್ನಯ ಪಾದವ ತೋರೋ
ಸಾಧುವಂದಿತನೆ ಆದರದಿಂದಲಿ ||೨||

ಸರಸಿಜನಾಭ ಶ್ರೀ ಪುರಂದರವಿಠಲನ
ನಿರುತ ನೆನೆಯುವಂತೆ ದಯ ಮಾಡೋ ||೩||


gajavadana bEDuve | gourItanaya
gajavadana bEDuve
trijagavaMditane sujanara porevane ||pa||

pAshAMkushadhara paramapavitra
mUShikavAhana munijanaprEma ||1||

mOdadi ninnaya pAdava tOrO
sAdhuvaMditane AdaradiMdali ||2||

sarasijanAbha shrI puraMdaraviThalana
niruta neneyuvaMte daya mADO ||3||


गजवदन बॆडुवे । गौरीतनय
गजवदन बॆडुवे
त्रिजगवंदितने सुजनर पोरेवने ॥प॥

पाशांकुशधर परमपवित्र
मूषिकवाहन मुनिजनप्रॆम ॥१॥

मॊददि निन्नय पादव तॊरॊ
साधुवंदितने आदरदिंदलि ॥२॥

सरसिजनाभ श्री पुरंदरविठलन
निरुत नेनेयुवंते दय माडॊ ॥३॥

    సరసిజనాభ శ్రీ పురందరవిఠలన
    నిరుత నెనెయువంతె దయ మాడో ll3ll

    Dear Meera ji
    namaste! this is vamsi from Hyd. Your blog is gaining immense popularity. Whenever I search for a lyric of a carnatic krithi on Google – I shall find your blog in the first three options. Hats off! to your contribution.
    A small suggestion from my side. In the first line of the charanam in the Gajavadana beduve…. krithi – it should be Gowri tanaya but not Govari tanaya. I request you to make this correction.
    As mentioned by one of your blog followers – you can always bank up on Baraha for scripting in almost all major indian languages. Version 9.4 is hassle free. Higher versions irritate us a lot forcing us to buy it while we get lot of options in the free version itself.

    i’m a Bharatanatyam dance student

    Thanks for posting the lyrics. Note that in gajavadana the da is not mahaapraaNa, that is it is NOT dha. On the other hand, the shha in Mooshhika IS mahapraaNa, it is not sha. Also in the last verse it should be sarasijanaabha not sarsijanaabha. Further, in the first line it should be Gouri not govari. These anomalies show up prominently in Kannada and Devanagari scripts.

    i had this doubt and figured out the song can be sung in chaturasya jathi eka talam… so wanted to let anyone else who had the same doubt know..
    also, this song is in humsadwani ragam, 29 dheera shankarabharanam janya
    composer: purandhara dhasa obviously!

    Thanks for your comments. I tried for a couple of times, I wasn’t able to get the correct spelling, so just gave up.

    Hi Meera,

    I love this site. Very informative. In this song, if you typed in Kannada, some of the spellings should be corrected. “Gowri”, “Vanditane”, “Purandhara” etc. If you are using Baraha script, there is a way to correct this.

    Very nice. Thanks. Lalitha
