Lyrics for Yenu Dhanyalo Lakumi

My Mom does Lakshmi pooje every Friday in the evening. This song was my Mom’s favorite. I do sing this song myself every Friday, and so does my sister.

While browsing the web, I found an awesome website. To quote them “This Web site contains thumbnail sketches of different Haridasas, who originated in Karnataka, a brief study of Haridasa Literature in English and few of their compositions in the form of Songs in Kannada.”

In order to see all the songs correctly, you need to have downloaded and installed either of the 4 fonts they support; Kannada, Telugu, Tamil & Sanskrit. The link to the web site is:

If you are having trouble seeing the correct fonts, do comment on this blog, I will be glad to help you.

For those who are having trouble viewing the page, here is the song in Kannada for you

    ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಬಾಲಯ್ಯನಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||ಪ||
    ಆರು ತೂಗಿದರು ಮಲಗನು ಮುರವೈರಿ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||ಅ||

    ನೀರೊಳು ಮುಳುಗಿ ಮೈ ಒರೆಸೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ಮೇರುವ ಹೊತ್ತು ಮೈ ಭಾರವೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||1||

    ಧರಣಿ ಕೋರೆಯಲಿಟ್ಟು ದವಡೆ ನೊಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ದುರುಳ ರಕ್ಕಸನ ಕರುಳ ಕಂಡಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||2||

    ನೆಲನನಳೆದು ಪುಟ್ಟ ಬೆರಳು ನೊಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ಛಲದಿಂದ ಕೊಡಲಿಯ ಪಿಡಿದೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||3||

    ಬಲು ಸೈನ್ಯ ಕಪಿಗಳ ನೋಡೆನೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ನೆಲುವಿನ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆಯು ನಿಲುಕದೆಂದೆಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||4||

    ಬತ್ತಲೆ ನಿಂತವರ ಎತ್ತಿ ಕೊಳ್ಳೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ಉತ್ತಮ ತೇಜಿಯ ಹತ್ತೇನೆಂದಳುತಾನೆ ಗೋಪ್ಯಮ್ಮ ||5||

    ತೊಟ್ಟಿಲೊಳಗೆ ಮಲಗಲೊಲ್ಲನು ಮುರವೈರಿ, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ
    ದಿಟ್ಟ ಶ್ರೀ ಪುರಂದರವಿಠಲಕೆ ಮೊಲೆ ಕೊಡು, ಬಾರೇ ಗೋಪಮ್ಮ ||6||

    Bārē gōpam’ma nim’ma bālayyanaḷutāne, bārē gōpam’ma ||pa||

    nīroḷu muḷugi mai oresendaḷutāne, bārē gōpam’ma

    Searching for the lyrics of this keertane I landed on this site. A great blog site!
    I have heard the last line as :
    ಶರ್ವವಂದ್ಯನಾದ ಪುರಂದರ ವಿಠ್ಠಲನ್ನ ಸೇವಿಸುತಿಹಳು
    sharvavandyanaada puraMdara viThThtalanna sEvisutihaLu
    instead of
    garuDagamananaada puraMdara viThThtalanna sEvisutihaLu

    If you notice every line (paada) starts with long, short note.
    Keeping that cadence, it is likely the last line is
    It also has the aadi prsaasa (ರ್ವ / rva) of the last stanza.

    Anyways, this is a good go to site for lyrics! Congrats.
    Hope you would keep this going.
