Rathava Nerida Raghavendra – Lyrics

This is one of the most famous compositions of Shri Jaganatha Vitthala Dasaru. If you listen to this song sung by Sri Vidyabhusan, believe me, you will be singing this song almost everytime you think of Shri Raghavendra Swamy or lovingly called as Rayaru by all his devotees. So, here comes the lyrics again in kannada for this famous song.

Ms. Bhavana has provided the lyrics in English and audio link.

Audio link for Rathava Nerida Raghavendra  –

    Hello Madam, the ankita says ‘Gopala Vittala’ and hence the composition should be Gopala Dasaru and not Jagannatha Dasaru. Please correct me if I am wrong.


  5. I am no expert but this seems to me like Brindavana Saranga Raag


  6. Thank you very much for the lyrics. Was searching for it and got what I wanted. I’m very fond of this song as its tune is too good.

    Gayathri, I am so sorry, overwhelmed by work at home and office. I am ready to go on my India trip in two weeks, and so work is coming my way from all directions. I have no idea when I will get time to translate all these into English.

    I am glad you are learning so many songs from this web site. I would have loved to translate all these immediately, but time has become a huge enemy right now.

    Hope you understand.
