Lyrics for Hanuma Namma Thayi Thande

Yet another song my Mom used to sing when we used to go to Hanuman or Anjaneya Temple.

Hanuma Namma Thayi Thande
Bheema Namma Bhandu Bhalaga
Ananda Thirthare Namma GathiGothravayya||

ThayiThande Hasulegagi SahayaMadi Sakuvanthe
Ayasavillade Sanjivanava Thande
Ghayagonda Kapigalanu Sayadanthe Poreda
Raghu Rayanangrigale Sakshi Threetayugadi||1||

Bandhubalagadanthe Aapadbandhavanagi Parthanige
bahdha bandha Durithagala Pariharisi
AndhakaJhathara Kondu NadaKandarpanendu
Govindanangrigale Sakshi Dwaparayugadi||2||

GathiGotraranthe Sadhuthathigalige Mathiya Thori
Mathigetta IpathaOndu(21) Mathava Khandisi
Gathigetta SadhVaishnavarige Sadgathiya Thorida Paramathama
Gathi PurandaraVittahalane Sakshi Kaliyugadalli||3||

And here are the lyrics in Kannada.

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.

The lyrics for Yenu Dhanyalo Lakumi can be found here:

Lyrics for Thunga Theeravirajam Bhajamana

Poojyaya Raghavendraya Sathya Dharma Ratha Yacha
Bajatham Kalpavrukshaya Namatham Kamadenuve.

Which means, the worship of Sri Raghavendraswamy, who is the embodiment of Sathya and Dharma (Truth and Righteousness), bestows whatever boon one aspires like Kalpavruksha, the Celestial Tree, and Kamadhenu, the Celestial Cow. Incessant chanting of this hymn is a panacea for all ills and problems in life, especially in this age of tension.

Also, chanting of “Om Sri Raghavendraya Namaha“, helps immensely.

Thunga theeravirajam bhajamana
Raghavendra guru rajam bhajamana

Mangala kara mantralayavasam
sringaranana rajithahasam
Raghavendra guru rajam bhajamana

Karadritha dhanda kamandalu malam
suruchira chelam dhrita mani malam
Raghavendra guru rajam bhajamana

Nirupama sundara kaya susheelam
Varakamalesha pita nija sakalam
Raghavendra guru rajam bhajamana
