Last speech of Shri Raghavendra Swami

Shri Raghavendra Swamy Picture at my house.

The photo of Rayaru you are seeing above, was given to me by the couple who managed the Rayara Mutta we had in Bijapur, near water tank. I used to go there every Thursday before driving to my College. When my father informed them that my marriage was fixed and gave them the first wedding card in 1991, the couple who managed the matta, gave this photo to me as a blessing and told me that they would miss me seeing there in the Matta every Thursday morning.

Rayaru has traveled with me all over the world, and now Rayaru is in my Pooja Room in Burtonsville, MD.

Isn’t it so appropriate that I am posting the last speech of Shri Raghavendra Swamy during his aaradhane? I received an email a couple of years back, which had this speech. So, here comes the contents of the same:

The day that Raghavendra Swami had chosen to enter Brindavan (Virodhikruth Samvatsara, Shravana Masa, krishna paksha, Dvitiya : 1671 A.D.) had come. Thousands of people had congregated there, hearing that Raghavendra Swami would enter Brindavan.

The crowd contained devotees as well as doubters. Some people had come just to make fun of what was going on. The devotees were filled with anxiety; they didn’t want their revered Guru to leave them. There were also people who were merely curious, just to see what would happen-although Sri Vadiraja Tirtha had entered the brindavan in the same manner, alive, in the year 1600 A.D, there were few who had witnessed that. Those who had only heard about it were greatly curious to see such a miracle with their own eyes.

Sri Raghavendra, as was his daily practice, got up before dawn meditating on Sri Hari and finished his bath during the early hours itself. After his japa and dhyana he conducted the morning discourse. His disciples were in deep sorrow at the thought that this was going to be their master’s last discourse. Their master was filled with an overwhelming desire to teach as much as possible and the disciples were anxious and eager to absorb everything. The subject matter was as usual Srimadacharya’s Bhashya and Sri Jayatirtha’s commentary for it.
That day’s discourse was the culmination of his life’s mission. For the thousands that had gathered there the realization that such a treasure-house of knowledge would leave them forever filled them with pain and agony. The discourse came to an end. After bathing once again, he started the puja of Sri Rama and other icons of the samsthan. After going through all the details of the puja he blessed the entire gathering with tirtha, prasad and phalamantrakshata. As the appointed time was nearing he went to the spot that was already chosen and sat in padmasan. He had his japa mala in his right hand and in front of him were all the moola granthas, sarva moola, tikas and tippanis on the vyasa peetha. For a while he was lost in contemplation; then Sri Raghavendra started his soul-stirring speech.

“Hereafter I will disappear from your sight. The Lord who sent me to you has Himself ordered me to return to Him today. I have completed His task. Everyone has to obey His orders – coming here and returning when He calls us back. You need not feel sad that I am leaving you. The moola granthas, sarva moola and their commentaries will be your guiding light. Never give up their study under a worthy master. The Lord has blessed us with this priceless life just to study them. The shastras have an answer for all our mundane problems. Follow the shastras and listen to the words of the enlightened. Put into practice as much as you can whatever you learn. The shastraic way of life is the royal road to peace, prosperity and happiness.

The search for knowledge is never easy. As the Upanishads say it is like walking on the razor’s edge. But for those who have strong faith and put in sustained effort and have the blessings of Sri Hari and Sri Madhvacharya, this is not difficult. Always keep away from people who merely perform miracles without following the shastras and yet call themselves God or guru. I have performed miracles, and so have great persons like Srimadacharya. These are based on yoga siddhi and the shastras. There is no fraud or trickery at all. These miracles were performed only to show the greatness of God and the wonderful powers that one can attain with His grace. Right knowledge (jnana) is greater than any miracle. Without this no real miracle can take place. Any miracle performed without this right knowledge is only witchcraft. No good will come to those who perform such miracles and also those who believe in them.

The Lord is full of auspicious qualities and absolutely faultless. There is no virtue that does not exist in Him. He is the Lord of Ramaa, Brahma and all other devathas at all times and in all ways. His form is beyond prakrithi (nature). His body is made up of jnana and ananda. He is omnipresent and omniscient. All the jivas are subservient to Him. Mahalaksmi who is ever liberated is His consort. All jivas (souls) are not equal. There is gradation amongst them and they are of three types. Whatever state they attain finally is in keeping with their intrinsic nature. The sattvik souls attain moksha which is a state of eternal bliss. The tamasic souls attain eternal hell where there is all pervading darkness. This is a state of eternal sorrow. The rajasic souls keep rotating in samsara always, experiencing both happiness and sorrow. The shastras declare such a three fold classification and gradation of souls. It can be seen everywhere in this world. There are several schools of philosophy which go against these tenets and declare that there is no God, no dharma, this world is false; there is nothing but void; the jivas and Brahma are the same; there is no three fold classification or gradation, all the jivas are equal to Brahma, the Vedas are not true, Brahman is nirguna (attribute less), nirakara (formless). None of these philosophies are correct. The world that we see is real; this world has a master; he is neither nirguna nornirakara. The shastras declare Him to be nirguna and nirakara because He is devoid of the three qualities of sattva, rajas, and tamas (unlike us). For the suffering soul. His grace is the only means to attain salvation which is eternal bliss. Those who forsake Him will never be truly happy.

Without right living, right thinking will never come. Right living is performing one’s ordained duties according to one’s station in life without hankering after the fruits of the actions and on the other hand offeringall one’s activities to the Lord. This is real sadachara (right living). This is real karma yoga. Another facet of right living is performing right rituals and observing fasts. Fasting on ekadashi and krishnashtami is compulsory for everyone. Both men and women belonging to all walks of life have to observe this. Those who give up this will always have the doors of the Lord’s home closed. This is what the shastras declare. Observance of chaturmasya vrata is another compulsory mode of worship. Along with this, vishnupanchaka and other vaishnava vratas can be performed according to one’s capacity. The main goal of all such vratas is to earn His grace and love.

One should always be careful never to harm or hurt another. Philosophical thought is very necessary for the soul’s growth. Without philosophical thought we can not arrive at the right conclusions. But let there be no personal enmity. Social work done for the good of worthy people should also be considered as the Lord’s worship. In short our life itself is a worship.Every action is a puja. This life is precious. Every second of our life is precious. Not even a second that has gone will come back. Listening to the right shastras and always remembering Him is the highest duty. Without this life becomes meaningless. Have devotion to the Lord. This devotion should never be blind faith. Accepting the Lord’s supremacy wholeheartedly is true devotion. Blind faith is not devotion. It is only stupidity. We should have devotion, not only for the Lord, but also for all other deities and preceptors in keeping with their status. In short having devotion to those above us, goodwill amongst those who are our equals and having affection for those who are below us are the excellent values of life. Anybody who approaches you should not go heavy at heart or empty handed. Spirituality can never exist without social grace. And social life without spirituality is no life at all. Spirituality never denies any virtue. But always remember that the Lord is the home of all values. The world does not exist for our sole pleasure and enjoyment. The thought that we are here for the good of the world is real spirituality. While incorporating right thinking and right values in our life we should also make it a habit to give up wrong values and wrong thinking. If we do not fight against them it amounts to approving them. But such disapproval should never turn to cruelty. It should be within the limits of justice. The outstanding feature of this should be love for truth and not personal hatred.

This is our philosophy. This is Srimadacharya’a philosophy. This is the philosophy all the shastras proclaim. This is the philosophy that kings and sages like Janaka and Sanaka believed and followed. The Lord’s devotees like Dhruva and Prahlada incorporated this philosophy in their lives. Those who believe and live by this philosophy will never come to any harm is the assurance of the Lord.Being God’s devotees you should honour and respect His devotees. Help as much as you can those who seek your aid. But always remember your duties. Offer all your actions to the Lord and never hanker after temporal gains. All actions performed with a selfish motive is like milk turned sour. There can be no higher motive than the motive to please God and the motive of earning jnana (right knowledge). But giving up all actions and following unworthy methods is like taking poison which will destroy us completely. It was Srimadacharya who preached this wonderful philosophy. The same Vayu who manifested as Hanumantha to serve Lord Sri Rama and as Bhimasena to serve Lord Sri Krishna also manifested as Srimadacharya and preached this philosophy. This was his service to Lord Sri Vedavyasa. His life, like his works was philosophy itself.

Now I take leave of you. Though I will not be with you in person my presence will be in my works and in my brindavan. You can serve me best by propagating, studying, preserving and listening to my works. My blessings to you.”

The message of the master gave new light to all the people gathered there. He had revealed to them the secret of his philosophy which he believed in, the philosophy which he preached and the philosophy by which he lived all his life. But the pain of separation made them forget the happiness that his message gave them. As they were hearing his sermon, they realized that he was a true jnani, a yogi, a scholar and a radiant monk possessing a soft and compassionate heart. Fear of displeasing him was the only reason why they held back their tears.

After this Sri Raghavendra began reciting the pranava mantra. In a very short time he was lost in meditation. He reached the highest point in mediation. His face was serene. He was shining with a rare brilliance. All the learned people who had gathered there were reminded of the sloka from the Bhagavad Gita :

omityekaksharaM brahma vyaaharan.h maamanusmaran.h
yaha prayaathi tyajan.h dehaM sa yaathi paramaaM gathim.h

At one stage the japamala in the master’s hand became still. Venkanna and other disciples who understood this sign started arranging the slabs around him. They arranged the slabs up to his head and then, as per his earlier instructions, they placed a copper box containing 1200 Lakshminarayana saligramas that had been specially brought from Gandaki river. Then they placed the covering slab over it and filled it with earth. They poured twelve thousand varahas (abhisheka) over the brindavan that they had built.

Appanacharya was very close to Raghavendra Swami. At the time that Raghavendra Swami entered Brindavan, he was on the other side of the river Tungabhadra. Appanacharya wanted to be with his revered guru, but the river was flooding. He jumped into the Tungabhadra, singing Sri Poornabhodha stotra, realizing that if Raghavendra Swami could lead him across the ocean of samsara, a mere river could not hold him back. And he did cross the river safely, only to see that Raghavendra Swami had already entered Brindavan. Appanacharya was in such a profound state of grief, that he could not finish the stotra he had started to compose-it was missing 7 aksharas. These final 7 aksharas came from inside the Brindavan. Not only did this show that Appanacharya’s Sri Poornabhodha had Raghavendra Swami’s approval, but it also showed that Raghavendra Swami was still with them. This was the first miracle he showed after entering Brindavan, and even today miracles happen to people who go to Mantralaya Brindavan to seek his blessings.

    I went to mantralayam 3 times, I went there on my because of job need ,first time I went I tried to do sankalpa seva but because of some reasons I haven’t did, that’s my mistake but I got a job ,I thought it was a miracle and became his devotee,,and later I failed to stay in Delhi and came back, after this I went to mantralayam for couple of times subuteertha swami current head given me tafeez still iam not getting job slowly Ian losing trust if I don’t get job by coming Thursday I will feel that he is not there just creativity by one community,



    • Dear sir,
      Please don’t try to test Rayaru in this. More you think like this more you will be far from him. For your selfish desires you are praying him. If you really trust him, just ask him to show you the right path. If you humbly and genuinely need something for sure he will help. Jai sree Ragahavendraya namaha.

      Than why he is not giving a job ? I read 108 times stotram and all and to be honest Iam suffering with severe back pain heart pain and loosevmotion ,light fever too from the next day when I listened. I slept on floor one day before doing seva and I too felt that he is in my dream for complete night ,I went to temple with 500,and I did roll pradhakshana and suddenly I felt like notions are started and the security who is standing opposite to samadhi had took me inside samadhi and I prayed rayaru, and he took that500 I don’t have money for sankalpam too ,so I started back to Hyderabad and listened to stotram 100 times so health problems started after that ,and returning home there is no water and bore motor got damaged Ian facing all these issues, so what I have to think do he really exist ???


      • Posted by meeraghu on September 20, 2018 at 3:45 pm

        Your attitude is completely wrong, we all get mad when things don’t happen our way. Many a times, we have to deal with our purva karma. For me Rayaru is there to give us strength to bear the difficult choices we face in our life. I myself am going through so many challenges, our faith will help us bear the difficulties, have patience. Keep faith, things will change.

    Beliving in rayaru is not blind faith.all have the reason to pray.i too have because he only can take you beyond birth and death .if one take birth he has to enjoy and aim in life is not to take rebirth.service to the people will get god closer.Even Scentist are here to serve the people.and give people sophasticated life.they too have taken birth to attain has to born again and again.until attain salvation.god created can give medicine.but they cant cure.with the name of god anything is possible.god washes our one please dont speak ill of rayaru. Thats wonderful place.wof i get chance i will surely visit

    Om Sri Guru Raghavendraya Namaha. It is with His blessings I could read the holy speech delivered at the last moment of Mahasamadhi. A sense of fulfillment is rather attained on completion of reading the speech which is nothing but absolute truth, May the whole world is blessed by Him.

    It’s a blessing to read and know the pious words of Shri Guru Rayaru. It takes us visually to the holy moment of Brindavana Pravesha as we read through.

    Hari: om,
    I wish to share my situation with you all devotees of Shree Rayaru.
    I am facing tremendous pressure and serious allegations from my boss for the sins that boss imagines. (I swear I have not even thought of such sins) Nobody is there to support or guide me.

    When things go out of control I start chanting Poojyaya Raghavendraya (only that shloka). I get tensed up till the topic is closed. Sometimes when it is delayed I get worried and feel worthless. I never get any signal of reassurance that Rayaru will help me out. I continue to be in panic. End of the day, I will myself wonder that things I feared did not happen.

    Please pray for me.

    I am I am not perfect in my nityakarma ( I do only sandhya & japa) nor I do pooja daily. is that the reason for NOT getting a signal of reassurance? how can I improve? Please advise.


  13. Posted by PG91 on February 28, 2017 at 8:16 am

    I have read most of these posts from 2008 to 2016. On one hand I am humbled and on the other depressed. All these people are blessed with some art like singing Bhajans or know some Maadhva philosophy. I have none of those. Yet my parents named me after Rayaru. I have been to Mantralaya only once, wish to connect with Rayaru spiritually. What do I do?

    What do you advise.

    Based on my experience, I can only request you to continue to have faith and pray to Sri Gururaya. He is known as “Atyantha Dayalu” and You will definitely see the fruits of all your prayers one day.

    I am a follower of your blog and regularly read the posts and comments; especially the many miracles and blessings from Sri Guru Raghavendra. My mom introduced me to worship in 70s and ever since, I prayed him to show the right path, guidance, assurance in every step of my life; always experienced his reassurance and guidance by seeing some form of Guru Raghavendra in my dreams.
    One such request for Gugurayaru was to seek his blessings to marry my husband. I prayed to Gurugalu, did hejje namaskara. He did not bless me at all. At that point I did not have a choice and went ahead and got married to my current husband. After 27 years of my marriage, I am still regretting what I did. Not a single day I had peace of mind. All I can do at this point is to continue to pray; asking his forgiveness hoping that he will show some mercy going forward. I am reading all these posts where the followers of this blog, me included, experience good things in life with his blessings; I thought of letting readers know how things turn out, my own experience, when he does not give his blessings.

    Great Article! Experienced so many miracles throughout my worshipping days during 80s and 90s! Got advice, assurance and guidance from the Lord Rayaru in dreams in most crucial moments of life. At one point I was so overwhelmed with devotion at the Raghavendra Swamy Temple at Kachiguda, Hyderabad that I asked for live darshan of the Lord while making Pradakshinas to the Brindavan and I saw him in flesh and blood (as He appears in the pictures) sitting on the sideline along with the devotees smiling at me only one pointed. I was stunned and confused and believe me by the time I completed the round and looked at the same place I could’nt see Him again. Imagine what would have been my state, supremely blissful for months. Even today after 30 years, peace descends on me at the mere thought of that rare blessing by the Lord.


  18. Today morning, being Thursday i sprung into a surprise by rayuru miracle. Last September 16th 2015 I got married the same day my parents completed their 30th wedding anniversary (my parents wedding and my wedding date are same) commemorating that my wife gifted a pair of rings to my parents asking them to exchange, later the same day evening my mother gave me her ring to me to keep it safe. i kept the ring along with rayaru pictured shield(i got as a married gift from my friend who brought this from mantralayam) in a hand bag and kept it in an almirah. After that we never opened that bag to take that ring. but i knew that it was there in that bag. all of sudden i got a strike last Sunday to check the ring which i kept it in that bag. i took the bag and rayaru shielded statue from the bag outside to my surprise the ring was not there. i searched the self in that almirah and bed corner it was not there. i surrendered to our beloved raghavendra swamy saying, i kept that ring with you inside the bag but all of sudden it went missing. only you alone can get it back i prayed from that moment on.

    Following days my mother used to drape her bed every morning but she could not able to find it in her bed. today morning after waking up i went to my mother room to seek blessings from rayuru photo we kept there. Surprisingly while i opened the door first sight i got the ring was there in the bed and called my mother how it came. she was astonished to see how she could not able to find it in all these days if it might have fallen from the bag when i tried to take the rayuru shield out. We were totally clueless and praised our beloved rayuru it was because of you we found it today and that too on your day Thursday.

    Om Sri Raghavendraya Namaha

    Awesome blog. It really brought tears to my eyes..reading rayaru’s miracles in peoples lives. I thought i too would share my experience here. My experience may not be as great as others. From all that I have read in this blog, there are so many who such great bhaktas of gurugalu. I too wanted to share my small experience.

    some years back a close friend of mine (who is more like a sister), moved to another city. She left her 2 sets of her house keys with me and asked them to be handed over to the tenant they had fixed. I got the house cleaned, went to opp shop to buy some thingsand went home. After a few days, i suddenly remembered that i should keep both sets of keys together. Assuming i had keys in the purse i had taken on the day of cleaning the house, i went to take it. but, i was SHOCKED that they keys wern’t there. I didn’t know what to do. After that I went to the shop and asked if any keys had fallen there. But no luck there too.

    I was ashamed to call my friend because, i failed to protect her items. However i called and confessed to her. I thought she would be angry and tensed, but she was cool and told me that she had full faith that i have not lost and only misplaced. She told ,me to search for a week. I promised that after a week, if i dont find, i will replace all her locks. I searched everywhere, inside fridge, below fridge, in microwave, cupboard etc etc, if i had absent mindedly kept. Under fridge i saw something shining, i was hoping it would be the keys, but it was just a piece of shining paper. My husband only kept saying “if u have to find it u will”.. i was annoyed and told not to give “tatvams” and instaed help me in searching!!

    I was so disturbed, so i decided to go to Rayar mutt nearby. Usually me and my hubby (by strange coincidence), never pray for ourselves from childhood. But that day i thought of asking something frm rayar, that too not for me. So i did pradakshine and told him, if i have ever done something wrong to someone, let there be some punishment for me and not for my friend. That day there was a pravachana in mutt on meaning of “om sri raghavendraya”. The pravachankara was explaining how rayaru asked people to worship shri hari as supreme and importance of karma.

    After a few days, suddenly my husband came and told, come immediately i found something. He told see below fridge..i saw and i was overjoyed to find the keys.

    I was wonderning how i searched the same place 4-5 times and didnt see it but, my hubby who never helped me in searching found it!!

    I was greatful to rayaru!!

    After this my hubby said. “i told u, if something has to happen it will, u simply wasted all ur energy and effor in searching but, i was destined to find it”. my argument was that yes, hubby was destined to find keys but, my efforts were not a waste.had i not lost and got tensed, i woud have never had chance of going to mutt that day and listening to the beautiful pravachana..

    I shared all this only because, i read above, some of the friends in this blog, going through a tough time. I cannot be in their shoes as the situations they are facing are very tough comapred to the comfy life i have been blessed..however, god has his ways of bring u closer to him, having faith in guru is 1st step, guru will lead u to govinda…dont worry..

    i have been married for 12 years and so far we havent been blessed with children. but, i dont feel sad, if that there, its for a reason. gurugalu knows what god has in store for you and he will lead u on the right path..

    pujyaya raghavendraya (pray to raghavendra/sri hari), satya dharma rathayacha gurugalu s grace will act like a charriot to follow the path of dharma, bhajatam kalpvrukshaya..he will bestow blessings like the kalpavruksha and like kamadhenu, he will bless with the nectar of kowledge about sri hari!!

    I have faith that Rayaru/Vadirajaru will lead me in the right path. i dont follow any major rituals or vratas, even ekadashi, i hope one day they bless me to and give me good hari bhaktas as friends.

      Hi Satish !
      Sorry , i do not mean to be interfering but I couldn’t be without replying after seeing your post.. Have unshakable faith in Rayaru , He will definitely bless you and your wife.. He knows when to give and beleive me when that time comes everything will fall in place.. I’m saying it rock solid due to my own experience.. After 6 years of marriage my time has come and right now I’m pregnant with a boy..Rayaru unlike other saints has gone through samsara and then attained Sanyasa so He knows a common man’s wishes and worries like no one.. Remember Him throughout that is more than enough.. Also don’t bother about any negative comments pls also take care that your wife is not affected by such comments.. We are mere humans,trust in Rayaru..

    Thank you for this wonderful information & i still have’nt visited Mantralaya & hoping soon i can go there & have Sri gur’s darshan
    Om Sri Guru Ragahavendraya Namaha …


  26. To all Rayaru devotees,
    Raghavendra swamy is an omnipresent in trusted devotees heart. i have really felt his presence number of times when i think over him. he will be making his presence in the guise of portraits sticked in vehicles / display name boards when i move around the city.

    Kindly agree if any one would have felt his presence in this manner?

    An another incident i need to share at this juncture, last year in the month of oct 2014, me and my uncle were returning to Chennai from sabarimalai, we were using tiruchy Chennai highway to reach chennai, it was raining heavily on that day, it was around 6.15 am, from my deep sleep i winked and just peeped outside towards a glass window i saw a newly built raghavendra temple (near karunguzhi 90 Kms far from Chennai) sitting graciously & blessing his devotees. i lost my sleep completely and started praying raghavendra swamy for showing his presence and informing me of his newly arisen mutt. there is no words to explain by sharing this miracle to my friends at that time, who are also Rayaru devotees,

    Nearly i have visited twice within this period of time to that mutt which rayaru himself have shown his mutt & addressed me to make a visit. i was really blessed by Raghavendra swamy. (added to that mutt lord ayyapan temple and amman temple is residing next to our rayaru.)

    Raghavendra swamy is an inseparable part of my life.

    after reading the miracles of sri raghavendra swamyji now myself became a strong devotee.


  28. Wonderful article, couldn’t have been translated better. My sincere pranams to you for having shared it 🙂 It’s doing rounds with all my relatives and loved ones too. A million namaskaras to dear Guru Raya 🙂


  29. I’m a true devotee of Raghavednra swami from my early teens. Our beloved rayaru have iterated numerous miracles in my life. To the recent one I want to share one of the most important miracles he played in my marriage life. Usually I used to search of Raghavendra swamys topic relate with blogs & sites in web interestingly when I was surfing I came to know about “Raghavendra swami pooja for getting all our problems to be solved”. I started to do fast by following the instruction which was said in that site. My prayers to do Rayaru seva is to be get married soon with an understanding life partner.
    Interestingly after finishing 5 to 6 weeks of rayaru seva, a perfect matched horoscope alliance came, when an engagement & marriage was on the way to materialize, desperately the alliance has been dropped by my family i was totally dejected & moved down. hopefully i finished my 7 weeks rayaru seva.
    I used to keep on asking Rayaru why he brought the alliance, and why we were asked our opinions in proceeding & why it’s been suddenly dropped. For everything Rayaru gave the answers. Nearly one year after in the same month an alliance came and got materialized with abundant blessings of Raghavendra swamy i have been got married to a wonderful life partner. i profusely thank Raghavendra samy for all his guidance to enlighten & enrich my life.
    Without him I’m nothing. i sincerely pray him to be with all trusted devotees heart and bring glory to their life….
    Our life is based on deeds we do. So be good & do good don’t harm anybody…

      Awesome. Very nice to read.


      • To all Trusted devotees,

        i would like to share my paramount experience which raghavendra swamy have showered us recently. i have married to a wonderful life partner last year September 2015. after 3 months of my marriage in December 2015 we decided to go to mantralayam. as i am a regular commuter to mantralayam first time i went along with my wife to have glorious dharshan & thanking rayuru for giving such a friendly & caring life partner.

        Followed to December once again i went to mantralyam in March 2016 and my prayers to rayuru is to bless us a child boon. Rayaru gave us a fruitful news after two days of my return from mantralayam we heard a positive news that my wife got conceived. as tears rolled out & i wholeheartedly thanked rayuru for making my prayers come true (it was tamil month panguni we heard a positive news – Raghavendra swamy birth commemorates).

        His miracle has not limited to that extent, my wife delivered a boy baby on November 17th it was Thursday and star symbol of my baby is same as Raghavendra swamys. and now we are blessed parents because of raghavendra swamy anugraha.

        We named my baby as Karthick raghavendra as a thanksgiving & gratitude for my beloved rayaru.

        Do good & be good. Trust him wholeheartedly he will bless us abundantly.

        Om Sri Raghavendra namaha…..

    Dear Meeera Madam,

    I am extremely fortunate to have read ‘Sri Rahavendra Raya’s’ speech before entering Brindavana. Its just not a speech but the guidance to best way of living. I browse through your blog whenever I am in need of lyrics of ‘Dasara padagalu’ as I always get moved by the preachings through the Dasa sahitya. It was another such occasion where I could spot ‘The revered Speech’ unexpectedly. Although it was posted here way back in 2008, atleast now I could get a chance to see this. this is one example of we get the things when we are destined. This is also a best example of presence of Almighty every where but it is the level of our Jnana which should be mature enough to feel His presence.

    I am profoundly delighted to go though this post and extremely thank you for presenting devine topics in your blog. Nevertheless, it is service to humanity.
    “Manava Seve Madhava Seva”. Long live your blog and God bless you to carry-out your diligence unaffected.

    Sri Gurubhyonaha.
    Hare Srinivasa!

    Hi !!
    Im a die hard devotee of Lord Balaji and i had experienced his presence and power lot of times during the time of distress. I was told by my friend who suddenly turned to be a devotee of Rayaru. He visited Mantralayam few times and insisted me to visit. I at a point felt like visiting Mantralayam. Lot of thinking was around my mind do i really need to visit cos i never pray any other God than Lord Balaji and Yoga Narashima. The plan kept dropping as i was not able to make a clear decision about the trip. On Sunday March 15th I decided strongly that let me make a visit. Afternoon suddenly woke up from the middle of the nap as i got a call from my friend to whom i had told him to check for the train ticket availability two days before as Chennai to Mumbai trains are always full. He was going through the tickets and found all full and waiting list until July. I was disappointed and told him to check with other trains if seats are available. My mind was in total state of disturbance and was kind of occupied with worry. I am awaiting for my UK settlement visa any time. If i dont get a train ticket at the earliest then I wont be able to make it until when i may get a chance in the future and dont know how many years it might take. I then had a second thought to visit Tirupati that evening itself cos i was not able to make it up for Mantralayam. I called all my friends to check if they can come none was able to decide. I felt bad that i couldnt make it up to get the blessings from Rayaru. I decided to continue with my nap and before that just tried to see for any other trains had availability cos my date of journey was planed on the 18th of March 2015. I found Shridi Express was having second class tickets and felt happy. I rang up my other friend to book the tickets as i didnt have an Irctc account. But much before he could book the ticket went to waiting list of 18. Again disappointment and sadness i felt that Rayaru is not willing to call me and i felt asleep without my knowledge. Suddenly i woke up at 5.30pm from a sound sleep. Just went to my friends house without even calling and i asked him to check again for any other tickets. I was astonised to find there was one 2nd ac ticket in chennai Dadar train on the 16th March 2015 available. And on 18th 1st ac ticket avialable. I felt happy and immediately got booked. I really felt that Rayaru has called me and visited Mantralayam. On the next day evening when i wanted to go for the prayer i went to the Tungabadhra river to wash my feet. In the middle of the river found a rock where i could sit for sometime and watch the sunset. I turned aside after some time in the flowing water i found a small metal idol of Lord Balaji. I got down into the runing water took it and kept on a rock prayed. I really felt that this a clear blessing of Rayaru. I had good darshan and returned back. I can see a huge difference when i chant Rayaru name for some time my mind gets calm and free immediately. It may sound so foolish for some members who might read this post. why i wanted to narrate my experience is because you can really feel him if you truly think of Rayaru and pray or ask what ever you may want When it is out of your hands after putting all your 100% efforts sincerely. You will get with Rayaru blessings if it is a truly genuine wish.

    I feel so blessed to read all miracles. My college education, my job everything is due to blessings of Sri Rayaru. I never feel like posting these miracles, but after reading His last speech, felt there cannot be a better place to share. The day of my job interview, when I got placed and came home back in the evening, got to know from my mom that her friend came to house to give prasadham from Mantralayam. I felt so blessed. After my college, the company I got placed didn’t call me due to recession for an year. But I had complete belief that Rayaru wont leave me like that and I was trying my best for other jobs. The same company called me after an year and its 5 years in the company being a lead now. Now the phase of marriage has come in my life. I’m a Tamil Brahmin and girl I love is a Madhwa (kannada brahmin) from Mangalore. There are lot of question marks over how this is gonna work. Things are looking like only a miracle can help us getting married. But who else is capable of making this happen other than our Rayaru. I have supreme belief in him. Visiting mantralayam in 2 weeks.

  42. Posted by A simple devotee on January 18, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Hello Meeraji,

    Hope you are doing well 🙂

    I am back today to share a few occurances that are a result of Guru’s blessings. I know it is very simple and might sound silly. I have followed the blog and comments and know of devotees who have been blessed with bigger miracles, but, I couldn’t stop myself from sharing my experiences that occurred this month.

    I had this burning desire to visit Mantralaya since a year and half now and whatever was being planned to make the visit continued to not materialise. I always felt Rayaru didn’t think it was time for me to visit His Holy Brindavana. I submitted to His wish and didn’t express it explicitly that I really want to see Him. I would timidly ask Him to make it possible soon. Every experience I read about Rayaru and devotees’ experiences on seeing the Brindavana, made me hope that my wish also be granted by Rayaru.

    On 8th Jan 2015 (Thursday), finally I could visit Mantralaya. I kept telling myself not to have high expectations as Rayaru has bigger devotees and I might just get a few seconds before the Brindavana. I was prepared as it was Thursday and I expected huge crowds.

    The small miracles began from the time of booking. No buses were available other than the one leaving on Wednesday night. When we booked the bus to Mantralaya, we booked only two seats instead of three (my son is just 5 years old and hence, dad thought 2 seats were enough). I knew it would be a difficult journey as it would be hard with my son on my lap all the time. I silently prayed to Rayaru to make it comfortable and said, whatever happens, I will not complain…my sole purpose is to see Him and all these are small things. When we boarded the bus, we had few empty seats and hence the three of us sat comfortably and reached Mantralaya. I just smiled and thanked Rayaru.

    Once we got off the bus, we got accommodation also easily (before the trip, we were worried of how to book accommodation). Once we freshened up, we went to the temple. For me, each step taken towards the temple was like a dream come true.

    After the pradikshine, it was time to finally see our Rayaru. We entered through the VIP entrance and the queue was moderate, with people having a glimpse of the Brindavana for a second and moving ahead. Devotees were being requested to keep moving and allow darshana to everyone. Basically, giving each of us only a few seconds to pray and see the Brindavana. As we awaited our turn, I was talking to Rayaru in my mind… last few seconds before I stepped in front to view Him in person and I closed my eyes and requested Him for a miracle. It was time and I stepped infront of the Brindavana. Then it happened. 🙂

    I was prepared for the quick darshana and was concentrating, when a person in dark orange robes who stood near the Brindavana looked at me. I noticed him when he said “Neevu illi ondu nimisha iri”. I looked at him and felt he had mistaken me for someone else and so I kept a step ahead to move along with the moving queue. More forcefully this time, he said ” Nimge kodakke helidaare. Swalpa nilli”. I was so surprised, I looked around and realised the person was talking to me. He asked the man who was behind me in the queue if he was with me, to which the man said no… He then addressed my dad who was in front of me in the queue and asked him if he was with me. When dad nodded, he asked us to stand right there and wait and the man quickly went inside. All this happened in a matter of seconds. Believe me, both dad and I were surprised and looked at each other. We didn’t understand who had asked the man to stop me and ask me to wait. Just imagine how blessed I felt when in all this, there I was standing right in front of the Brindavana, so close to the Brindavana. I only smiled and realised it was none other than Rayaru who had indeed heard my silent prayers and made it possible. Everyone else who was after me in the queue were asked to move and there I stood speechless with my dad and son, right in front of the Brindavana. I couldn’t stop the tears that sprang from my eyes. Even as I share this with you, I have tears in my eyes. After a minute or so, the person returned with lots of manthrakashate, kumkuma packet, flowers and a rose. From your blog, I know of Rayaru’s fondness for red roses… and there I stood in front of Brindavana as instructed by that man in dark orange robe, holding all this in my hand and just feeling overwhelmed! Dad was also given the mantrakshate and flowers. Truely a blessed day it was. I will never forget that Thursday if my life.

    Once we came out and sat down to read the Guru Stotra, I just couldn’t stop my tears. I felt happy and blessed.

    I realised that in all the melee, I forgot to put kanike in the hundi! This time, I went alone again to wait in the queue. When my turn came and I stood there in front of the Brindavana putting the kanike in the Hundi, the priest again went inside and got kallu sakkare, dried grapes and kept it in front of Rayara Brindavana and then offered it to me along with more Manthrakshate. Second time, I got time in front of the Brindavana when otherwise all of us were being asked to keep moving, was indeed an overwhelming experience.

    Everything seemed perfect and we thanked Rayaru and set off from Mantralaya to come back home. This time again, there was an extra seat available and the journey was comfortable.

    I know Meeraji, the experience sounds silly. For me it will remain special because after having read all the experiences shared in your blog, I wished for a miracle and Rayaru made it possible.

    He truely listens to us and answers our unspoken questions and fulfills our desires, doesn’t He? 🙂
    May Rayaru bless all the devotees and continue to be with us at all times.


    • Posted by meeraghu on January 18, 2015 at 9:00 am

      This is not silly. this is truly our beloved Rayaru’s krupe. Please don’t call it silly. He truly reads our mind. You are blessed is all I can say.


  43. Posted by A simple devotee on December 14, 2014 at 10:59 am

    I know I said that I would post another miracle soon, but didn’t want to let go of this opportunity to thank Rayaru through this forum 🙂

    Back in 2013, I went through a lot of hardship at work. I went on a rotation. When I returned, I worked really hard to build the process and team here at our office. I was blessed to have two friends at work who stood like rocks beside me through this whole journey. Unfortunately, all efforts were in vain. I was blamed for a lot of things that didn’t go well and I was not rated well despite all efforts that I had put in. It broke my heart and I kept wondering why this happened. During those crucial months, since life was very busy, I did not visit Rayara mutt on Thursdays, like I always did before. I was so immersed in work that I forgot about Him, though I prayed, I didn’t go to the temple. This was where I went wrong and learnt my lesson. I received no appreciation for my work, instead was blamed by everyone. I went through a lot of pain and anguish.
    There were other tensions also going on at that time and I withdrew into my shell. One day, while browsing the net about Rayaru, I learnt about Rayara Stotra. I was drawn to it and I downloaded it and began to listen to it everyday on my way to work. At work, I did my normal day to day tasks. I prepared my resume and was ready to leave the firm to join elsewhere, where my efforts would be appreciated. I was very hurt by my counsellor and each and every problem I had, I shared with Rayaru. I would have these lengthy conversations in my mind with Rayaru. I continued to pray and listen to the stotra. I prayed for a good job. I didn’t get one. I was in two minds… confused and told Rayaru to help me. And then started the miracles…
    My counsellor changed. I was surprised. In a few months, I had a honest conversation with my new counsellor and vented out my frustrations. She asked me to think if I wanted to quit and be known as a loser or rise and show my detractors that what they did was wrong. It got me thinking.
    I worked hard. I continued to pray. I went to Rayara mutt and lit ghee lamps on Thursdays. – all this with only one request that Rayaru should always be with me and mot abandon me.
    Days passed.. got busy with work. But this time, I held onto Rayaru and never left Him.
    Believe it or not, I started getting recognition, awards and rewards. All these were tasks done long back and I was reaping rewards now! Not only that, a promotion and a good rating. I was dumbstruck. I still didn’t realise that it was Rayaru who made it all possible. I had not prayed for all this, I only had this thought that one day, even I should receive the award, the recognition. He had heard my thoughts and made it possible, though I never really prayed to Him for these.
    There are no words to explain the way I feel when I think of what Rayaru did for me in the past year. I always felt I have to share the many miracles, but didn’t know how and where. Thank you Meeraji for this opportunity. May Rayaru always shower you with loads of blessings and happiness to you snd your family.

    This time again, I have a few problems I am facing. Today I was in tears and I happened to browse this blog again. I feel better and I feel Rayaru showed me the way to share my experiences.

    Om Sri Raghavendraaya Namaha

      Yes, please have faith. We are humans and puppets of Lord almighty. God is great, and he would never ever do anything to harm us. He is our greatest protector, when things go bad rather than blaming God, we need to strengthen our faith and have confidence that our faith is there to protect us.
      Hardships come, and we need to be brave and face them.
      Thanks again for sharing, and keep praying to our beloved Rayaru. He will listen to your prayers.

        Tomorrow is an important day. A day when I will make a big decision. A day that scares me, but I know it is necessary.
        Please pray to Rayaru to show me the truth, to follow the right path and to help me make the right decision. I know you are a great devotee of Rayaru and He will surely listen to you.
        Thank you, Meeraji

      • Posted by meeraghu on December 14, 2014 at 1:28 pm

        I will definitely pray for you. Anyone who has faith in Rayaru, and prays to him is indeed a great devotee including yourself.

  44. Posted by A simple devotee on December 14, 2014 at 10:27 am

    First of all, a big thank you, Meeraji, for giving us a forum to express our devotion to Rayaru.
    I have so many miracles to share, but was unable to do so due to the other Raghavendra Swamy websites that wouldn’t work. Though I would regularly visit the blog, it never flashed to me that I could share my miracles here. Silly me!

    It was time for my son’s admission and we had no clue which school would be best and what would be the procedures. I had been worried about it and on that day, prayed to Rayaru to help. When I was at my mom’s place the same day, I was browsing through the net for details of schools etc. Nothing was working out. I happened to read a comment from a mother on a blog where she complained of the quality of education and how these days kids aren’t independent in thinking and writing, children would write only when an elder held their hand! I shared this with mom and she said as a child, my handwriting was beautiful as the school that I studied had skilled teachers who taught every kid very early on how to be independent and write beautifully. Even before she could end her sentence, it dawned on both of us why we didn’t think of the same school for my son!
    From then on, things just fell in place. Admission was through and my son would be going to the right school. There was nil hassles and the ease with which everything worked out can be attributed completely to the grace of Rayaru! It was just a simple prayer and call for help… Rayaru ensured everything fell into place and showed the way!

    No words can describe the joy we all feel to know He is constantly with us.

    Om Sri Raghavendraaya Namaha

    I have many miracles to share and will do so soon…

    May Rayaru bless us all and guide us all through our lives.

    The guru, who saves me always in this stream of life is swamy. Many times i could realize his holiness. Even after all my sins ( to err is human) he shapes me to the destiny perfectly. Every one must follow a Guru, this ways to attain the supreme soul.


  46. Hello Meera madam,

    The service you render in propagating Raghavendra swamy’s mahimai & miracles is really exceptional & nice.

    I profusely thank Guru Raghavendra swamy for making me to land on to your blog, and made me to realize that he is living in trusted people’s heart to help and serve them in right direction of their life. Because of his karunai I am here in this blog to be one among his trusted devotee.

    I truly admit my miracles in coming days. But as of now I want to tell everyone that If our prayers & wishes getting delayed just think that Raghevendra swamy is doing it for specific purpose.

    Never lose faith in Raghavendra Swami and do not expect instant solutions to anything.

    Blessed to read this..! I don’t claim myself to be an ardent devotee because i do not follow certain things Rayaru has mentioned.. But to me He is everything.. Due to His grace,I have not faced any big failure in life but there have been many near miss instances , which i desired to happen.. Nevertheless, He made me realise after sometime that those were all for good.. My whole family in indebted to Rayaru..My husband though being a Madhwa, never was into Rayaru because he was unaware .. His first visit to Mantralaya was only in 2012.. But he left Mantralaya with a heavy heart feeling very bad for not knowing about Rayaru all these years 🙂 .I would like to keep a humble request here.. There is a mutt in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu in a place called Vadavar..Vadavaru is where Rayaru obtained Sanyasa and He is in the form of Moola Brindavana, not many are aware of this.. Please visit that place to experience what peace is..

    From childhood I am also a devotee of raghavendra..I am blessed with good job with good family. But I am facing one problem now, I have two daughters, my in laws and husband want a baby boy, but I am totally against to that. we were expecting a second kid would be boy but that turns to be girl and she born on Thursday!!! so I feel some strong intension why ragavendra has given me baby girl. I don’t know how to convience my inlaws and husband for not having third and they are very much disappointed for not having baby boy!!!


    • Posted by meeraghu on July 24, 2014 at 7:45 pm

      Your in-laws and Husband are ignorant. There is no way to convince them. I am so sad to read that there are people like your in-laws and husband in this day and age. What if the next baby is a girl, you will have another child? And again if that is a girl, another and so on and on.
      It is crazy, they are crazy, please don’t have another child with this attitude. Hurts me to even read your comment.


  49. Thank you sir. Om Sri Raghavendraya Namaha


  50. I am waiting for more than 34 years for the Blessings of Rayaru. Less said about my faith in him and devotion better. The waiting is long, the years roll so fast.When will my family – my son- get His Grace? Please include us in your prayers., probably our prayers are too little or our past karma is not yet wiped to receive his Grace. We are worried beyond expression and left everything to Sri Rayaru.


    • Posted by meeraghu on April 4, 2014 at 7:39 am

      Have trust, he will bless you. The fact that you are praying to him in itself is a blessing from him.

    I was wondering who took the note of Ragavendra Swami last speech and how accurate did they take the note word by word. Sorry to ask this question.
    Do not get me wrong……the reason why I ask is :

    I’ve been into this spiritual quest of understanding what is God? who is the creator? is he really sitting up above the clouds in a place called heavens? what is the need of prayer?……..these questions goes on and on……!!!
    So I started to read about Hindu spiritual people and came across : Tulsidas, Ragavendra Swami – and I started to have stronger faith in god until I came across Vivekananda who is a disciple of ramakrishna paramahamsa. Ramakrishna said “I have seen Him more tangibly than I see you”.
    But Vivekananda said that – “ God is fictitious”
    That’s when my heart sunk.
    I have provided the link below as the source:

    I have my inner battle going on and I fighting to know the truth.

    For me my life is Rayaru and he is my all and he bless me like anything. For years, i was not successful in my business as loss was always there…every time i end up in loss or some bad news..Life was really a hell… went to many places …consulted astrologers,but they were not able to solve my issues… But one day i went to Rameswaram, there one Brahmin told me to believe in Sri rayaru and pray him with alll belief and trust…I did that from that day keeping Sri Rayaru photo and praying ,offering a flower which i can offered,but my prayer was really true with sound belief……I just surrendered to him totally ………then i saw the real light in my life… things started to take shape and my business started to grow and there on, life was happy with peace and i can say that nothing beyond Sri Rayaru…..and he is all for us…. he take care of us…..he guide us well… these are from my real life experience…Am very much lucky that i have now become the devotee…. i can say, the child of Sri Rayaru.

    I do not have any words to express. The speech copy rolled out a real drushyavali front of me. I vow to follow today on wards the principles that Rayaru has preached us. He is the prathyaksha guru to any one who adores and prays him with utmost devotion.

    BTW: Thanks for all those wonderful recipes and other very useful information.


  65. am going through a very potentially disgraceful personal dilemma. i am at crossroads in my life – one way leading to personal unhappiness and the other mayb happiness with public disgrace. i believe my shirdi sai brought me to this page – mayb sadguru wants me to pray to raghavendra swami…i dont know what to do..,y only hope is that a miracle happens in my life make it better…and i will come and write that story here…

    Thank you, I’am posting great miracle happened to me. Pl. post

    Om sri Raghavendraya Namaha.

    I’am Mahadeva swamy A.M. (Mahesh). lives at Huralichikkanahalli, Hesaraghatta road. Bangalore.
    I’am such a devotee of Raghavendra, always keeps do work with his grace. and takes whatever comes to me as prasadam of Raghavendra.
    Last here one great miracle happened to me in july-2012.
    There is Brahmin family lives just close to my house. Uncle (vol. retired from mico), and aunty works in horticulture dept. They have two daughters both are married.
    They have planned a kashi trip for 15 days. There journey is to Bhopal from bangalore by train. and from there their co-brother family joins and full round trip planned from Bhopal including return journey by air.
    Before starting of journey uncle told me, he has arranged taxi for a drop to yeshwanthpur railway staion.
    Train schedule was 5.50 a.m by baroda express. And he told me incase any emergency he may need my vehicle for drop in case of any emergency. I said ok. He told along with him his wife, elder daughter and one grandson also coming.
    The same previous weekend my maruthi van front tyre left side got puctured. and i just put jack and i had not changed the tyre as i use rarely car except weekend.
    The day which they started there journey, the taxi came at 1.00am and comfartably started there journey putting all there luggages(around nine bags).in between at Bagalugunte they had ordered some food items for 2 days of train journey. They comfartably collected. By 3.30 am. they started towards yeshwanthpur railway station which is just hardly 6km from there.
    But unfortunately aunty forgotten her diabetes inslulin kit.
    They thought time is there and they wanted to pick it up , they returned to home by 4.00 am and collected the kit.
    By the time, the vehicle got problem, The driver started inspecting it and it didn’t start. 30 to 45 min. gone in that. Then everybody started getting tensed. as it was closing for train schedule.
    Uncle immediately came to our house and started calling me as mahesh, mahesh from the gate.
    I immediately woke up and came and saw. Uncle in tensed voice, explained about that. I said dont worry uncle God is there. i will take out my vehicle and drop you all.
    Then i saw my vehicle side, i was shocked to see the jack and tyre was not changed. I told uncle to call driver. And started removing the steppny tyre.Immediately driver came and he told he will change the tyre and asked me to put on the dress.

    He asked whether he can take his vehicle. I told my self i will drop them. It was 5.10. Immediately we put all the luggages and started our journey to railway station.
    On the middle of the way they dont know which side platform comes. As there are two entry side. I wanted to know which side i should go, they were trying find out through enquiry.
    Luckily one of my frind Ashok kumar who studied with us, is in railway as driver. called just before day.So i remembered him suddenly and rang him , he immediately pick up the call and i asked him about the platform for Baroda express. He told it is second platform which comes yeshwantpur side. also he told he is on the same duty for the same train.
    Thank Raghavendra. I explained him the situation and told him to wait in case 2 to 5 min. If it is late. He told me ok but to come fast, as it is not in anybody control as everybody knows.
    Then i was coming very carefully with a speed, and time was 5.40 and i was about to reach BEL circle. I started ringing Ashok, he didn’t pickup. I too got tensed.
    Everybody praying god. I also prayed Raghavendra, i begged him to make me to do this, and for a safe journey of uncle family.
    I told nothing will happaen. God is there. They are also Raghavendra devotee. and does lot of pooja. But they are still worried all 15 days plan will go wrong. as it was auspicious kashi trip for them
    After 5 min. it was 5.45 i called up, he took the phone and asked me where are you. i crossed BEL circle. from there about 2 to 3 kms. to railway station. I requested him, i dont know you have to manage. and wait for me
    i went very fast. and i reached portico. it was 5.50. Train time was over. I called coolie, coolie in a big voice. some fellows came. i told him take the luggage and go to second platform.
    The parking fellow was telling me to park at parking lot. I told him it is very urgent. I dropped all luggage to coolie. and everybody carried. I closed and locked somehow. we entered and went on staircase . i told one of his daughter to run and check train, whether it was there starting and ready to leave. We all went near to train. (Uncle is little handicap also. As he cant walk fast, also made it with gods strength, after words he told me.)
    One more luck we were just getting down from stair case. it was there AC compartment only. We just thrown all the luggages in and every body got in to train. Immediately my friend called me and asked what happend. It was so matched everybody were there inside with luggage and he said he will started at 6.00am. that is 10 min. late. Thanks Raghavendra. Everything went with his only grace.
    Everybody were looking at us only from inside the train and outside people on platform also,. because train started as per schedule and after jerk of 10 m , it stopped.
    He is my friend Ashok, Loco driver requested station master. that in his family some important persons are coming. and said he will wait for at least 10 min.
    Station master told at least he has to leave as per schedule. But Ashok had some time in his control for checking.
    They all finished there trip and returned safely with Raghavendra’s grace. They tell because of me they made kashi trip.
    No it is Raghavendra did miracle to us and showed. nambidavaranna ki bidalla antha.
    The news went everywhere in there relatives circle. and they started telling uncle you have people to stop the train which is scheduled.
    I told in my mind a heartful THANKS TO SRI RAGHAVENDRA

    Hi Meera

    My name is Gururaj and have been reading all your blog regularly and feel that you are indeed an ardent devotee of our beloved Rayaru and you are truly blessed by HIS grace.

    This is the first time i am writing but promise that i will be a regular visitor.

    I just have one question at the moment. I chant Guru stotra daily and try to chant as many times as possible starting in the morning after my bath and then while on my way to work and then again in the evening when i go to the nearby matha.

    My question is whether we can chant Guru stotra while travelling? Also can this be chanted any time during the day?

    Please keep writing. I learn a lot from your blogs.

    Thanks & regards


    • Posted by meeraghu on August 24, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      Yes, I do chat it while traveling also. I don’t see any problem with that.


      • Posted by Gururaj Rao on August 25, 2012 at 2:26 am

        Thanks Meera for the revert. The intention behind asking this question was i did not want to do anything incorrect even unknowingly. So better to clarify than assume.

Then as usual on that evening i went to matta to see Rayaru. After finishing darshan, matta calling every body to have dinner, I am really surprised vow what a great person i am, so i am not missing the prasada of sri guru this year also.

  77. Posted by Priya on July 5, 2012 at 2:24 am

    Thanks for this interesting post. I am really happy to see Guru’s speech. I am an ardent devotee of Sri Guru since 2006.

    He too has blessed my family in many ways. I want to write down everything, so this is going to be a long comment. Sorry about it.

    I couldn’t conceive even after three years of marriage. Then I prayed to Rayuru deeply and next month I conceived. I consider my daughter to be a miracle and Rayuru’s gift.

    Similarly, last year, they found a tumor in my mom’s kidney and it was diagnosed as cancer. We were all shocked. The first place where I went after the result came out was Sri Guru’s temple which was nearby my house. Every day I went to Sri Guru’s temple and cried in front of him. I told him “You have to help my mother. I have caught hold of your feet and I have no intention to leave it till my mom is cured”. One day I got a dream that a ray from Rayuru’s hand is falling on my mom’s hip. I woke up, but I couldn’t believe it. I just thought that I was too tensed and tired. Then, for the purpose of insurance, we had to create an identity card for my mom. I have approached a near by bank to open an account and get a passbook done with my mother’s photo on it. The manager said everything is ready and went to get my mother’s photo from the application form. But he couldn’t find it. Almost half an hour over and still he was searching for the photo. Then he went inside a room, bought a tray full of applications. He placed the tray on a table. At that moment I saw a big Rayaru’s photo hanging on the wall directly above the tray. Immediately, the manager found my mom’s photo on top of the tray. At the same time, the Manager’s mobile rang. The ring tone was “Poojaya Raghavendraya”..Tears started flowing from my eyes. At that moment, I realized that all will be well. Even now when I write this, I am getting goose bumps.
    We admitted my mom in a hospital in Chennai. The operation went on very well and they sent the tumor for biopsy. We were supposed to go to the hospital to get the biopsy result. I remember the day very well. It was Thursday and I was fasting. The result came as non-cancerous growth. (Oncocytoma). The doctor himself was astonished. He is a very experienced doctor who is practicing for the past forty years. He said that he had never once found an Oncocytomic growth in Kidney. He said that 99.9% of the growths in kidney will be a cancerous growth and the possibility of a non-cancerous growth is 0.01%.
    Immediately in the evening I went to a nearby temple and was shocked to find a small idol of Rayuru there. I was overwhelmed by his kindness and blessings.
    Even now, Rayuru blesses me a lot. There was a problem in my office and I had resigned. I begged Rayuru to get me a new job and I got the good news on a thursday.
    Thank you Sri Guru for all your blessings.

  78. Posted by meeraghu on June 26, 2012 at 8:24 am

    madi is the rituals you follow before performing a pooja. Like 1 example, is not touching anyone after taking a shower, and having clothes which are washed and dried the previous day to be used for doing pooja. Not eating or drinking anything unless you finish the pooja.

    Hi all,

    I am an ardent devotee of Sri Raghavendra Swamy. Actually Sri Rayaru is my father, mother, friend and all to me. I am 38yrs old who was married with Rayaru’s blessings 4months back. God has given me the best husband in my life. Everyone thought I will never get married, but I firmly believed that Sri Raghavendraswamy will never let me down and prayed with full faith an dld love to Sri Raghavendraswamy, and now am happily married. Without Sri Rayaru’s grace I would’nt be what I am today in all walks of my life. I start my prayer every day thanking Sri Rayaru for accepting me as his devotee. I LOVE SRI RAGHAVENDRASWAMY A LOT. HE IS THE BEST PERSON IN LIFE WHOM I CAN SHARE EVERYTHING WITH. GOD I LOVE YOU A LOT AND THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR GIVING ME A HAPPY LIFE. THANK YOU GOD…

  92. Posted by Manohar on November 15, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Hello All,
    I am writing this as my 53 year old mother ( who is a devotee of guru rayaru) is in ICU and fighting for her life. Since the time I know this world my mom has been worshiping sri guru rayaru and brought us up in the same way. She use to take us to rayara aradhane every year and always use to pray for our wellbeingness. I still remember my mom always use to ask sri rayaru for wellbeing of her children and husband and never use to ask anything for herself.

    Rayaru has done a lot of miralces in my life since my childhood. I wanted a seat in one of the reputed college in blore and though I didnt have cut off marks I got the seat in second year of my degree. then I wanted to get a job before I was graduated and it did meterialise thanks to rayara krupe. and Then working abroad was always my dream and I kept praying rayaru and today I writing this sitting in central london in one of the reputed bank. But today I am praying rayaru for my mom’s health, Hope he gives the courage and strength to get through this tough situation.

    Today she is in ICU for the last 3 weeks due to multi organ failure and doctors dont have much to offer. They keep saying she is still in critical condition and numbers about her health getting decrease day by day. I have been praying rayaru since she has been hospitalised. These are testing times for us and hopefully rayaru will help my mom to get through this situation.

    Just thought should share it here. If you can, please do pray for my mom as some people say others praying for you might work sometimes.

    Om Sri raghavendraya namaha…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    • Posted by meeraghu on November 15, 2011 at 10:51 am

      I am so sorry to hear about your Mother’s condition. I will pary to Rayaru for her well being. Please keep praying, Rayaru will give you all the strength during this tough times.

      Keep us posted about your mother’s health.

      More than Guru, your mom needs YOU… Go back to her. Be physically present for her…. She needs your care and support. Everything else is only secondary. You come back to India and pray to Guru while sitting right beside your mom. Thats what He would want you to do.


      • Posted by Manohar on January 30, 2012 at 3:30 am

        Hello All,
        I should have written rather sooner than this but only had the courage to it now. Earlier I had written about my mom’s health & hospitalisation here in November. I read somone writing here about sankalpa pooja and ask rayaru to do the right thing. I left a message here and the very next day we did sankalpa pooja and the priest told us that she will get discharged of the hospital very next day.

        Though his words became true and she did get discharged out of the hospital very next day, it was only her body. She passed away on the very next day. I dont know if it was for good reason or bad but I thought maybe it was the right thing. Probably rayaru wanted her to be with him rather than with us. Though it was very hard, unthinkable and couldn’t imagine the world without my mom the world still moved on. Sometimes if I think of the pain she went through in hospital for a month with life support,dialysis etc etc.. may be it happened for a reason but its still unbelievable. She dedicated all her life her children ( me n my brothers) and their happiness, so guru raya thought it was time for her to be there. I am happy though that the last words I spoke to her was to prey to guru raya to give her the strength and power to come out the situation. That was the last time we saw my mom in consciousness. Sometimes I also feel she is lucky because she didn’t have to go through the pain of losing someone close which kills you every day.

        Anyway Just want to say thank you for the people who preyed for my mom and hopefully she is in a better place now because of all your prayers.

        Om Sri raghavendraya namah..

        @ Kavya,
        Not trying to justify myself (though I’ve not been her best son) I was there with her in hospital for a month but thought may be my disappearance might help her to recover and left for a week(being a bit superstitious). But again had to go back within 2 days… 😦

      • Posted by Kavya on January 30, 2012 at 11:52 pm

        I’m glad that you stayed beside your mother for a month. But I’m feeling too sad to hear about your mom. 😦 May she rest in peace. We’ll pray for your well being and peace.

    “Hi to all,

    I am a devotee of Sri Ragavendra Swamy. Sri Rayaru has done lot of great things in my life in which i really felt his blessing was, when i went to scotland to purse my highers i left India without knowing anyone there. Through a friend i got a person staying in Edinburgh and he accomodated me for a while. His name was Sri and i called him as “Ji” since he s elder dan me.By all means he helped me a lot in take caring of me and found a room for me to stay in scotland. He himself voluntered with me and came to scotland to settle me down. By the time he left from scotland i ask for his cell number and his name full name to note down. When he said his name I was speechless and tears rolled out. His name was ” Sri Ragavendra” and i literally believe dat it was Rayaru who came down to help me.

    I believe in Ragavendra and wil do also.

    om sri raghavendraya namaha.
    i started raayara stotra from the age of 8 as taught by my revered father. i did not know the meaning then, but today after 54 years, every letter is close to me and it vibrates my body mind and intellect as i repeat. this last speech, i have read more than 1000 times yet every time i read, i get tears uncontrolled. would like to share one of the rare of the rarest miracles in my life.

    my wife is a malayalee, born and brought up in bangalore. she had no idea of Raayaru. her colleagues had presented the big photo of Raayaru during our marriage 32 years back. i briefly told her about raayaru during our visit to mantralays just the next day of our marriage. she told me her experience, which make my hairs rise even today. she said she used to see a sanyasi, walking back to her view, towards a river, which she did not know which river it was, but contained lots of boulders around. at the end of the dream the saint tunrs back and she had seen the actual frame of Raayaru in saffron attire, holding a kamandala and a stick. when she saw the photo of Raayaru presented to us she said this is the face she used to see in her dreams. she had no idea of any thing as she was a keralite. she had only once visited raayara matha along with one her madhwa friends, on a thursday.

    when we reached mantralaya ( our spiritual honey moon on the second day of our marriage), she meticulously remembered and said this is the river, the place whiere she had seen the saint who is none other than Raayaru. IS IT NOT DIVINE MIRACLE?

    since then, she is ardent devotee, and though both of us have undergone major surgeries,after which people are disabled, we both work 7 days a week, i am a professor and she runs a fashion design course. we fight wtih raayaru like children with parents.

    I am a ardent devotee of sri guru raghavendra… I have his grace on me.I would like to share the recent miracle which happened in my life. At my job, i was in bench for for a long time, suddendly my manager came and assigned me job, i was not knowing anyhting about the technology which is used as i was still in training. Then i prayed to rayaru whole heartedly and started the work which was assigned to me.. Beleive it or not i was successfull in the assigned job by the end of the day. From, next day i was into that project. Even though i was in training i was capable to do it.. It’s all because of the Rayaru’s grace. He his sole responsible for my success.

    I only told what Sri Guruja have not given to me. But i forgot to share his blessings to our family. We did our sisters marriage on may 2011. But we don’t have enough money to do marriage. At last 2 sovereign gold was lacking and we asked money to many people. we got some money but it lost for other arrangements. Even a two days before of marriage we didn’t buy gold. At last we asked jewelery shop owner, which was my brothers friend shop only. once my sister took tuition to that boy, for that gratitude they helped us by giving gold as Debt.

    See Devotees isn’t miracle by gururaja to our family. We all know gold rate increasing day by day. Its need lot of kind heart to give 2 sovereign gold as debt.All our relative told it was for ur family bhakthi only Gururaja has remembered about that shop owner in the last moment, otherwise imagine my parents situation. If they didn’t give gold my parents will be in the state of embarrassment in front of bridegrooms family for not fullfilling the given words…

    Gururaja only saved us from that critical situtation. But now the only problem is i have to give financial freedom to my parents by repaying all those debt. I want to see happiness in their face. For that only i need job, but my fear is one year had gone, still didn’t get job, don’t knw y gururaja testing our family so much….

    Gururaja knw our family situation very well, lets see what will happen, but i am hoping for the best….

    send me across you CV i can help you out .

    I am a devotee of Sri Ragavendra since from childhood. I finished my Engineering in 2010 with Distinction due to grace of Sri gururaja and Sri moola rama.I had read all the eight parts of sri ragavendra mahima by Amman sathyanathan sir. Also reading again and again those books. Sri gururaja has helped me getting a good education, but i dnt knw why he has not showing me the way for job. I am searching job for one year, i dint get any. my family dependent on my income and i have to clear my education loan. my parents also very much worried abut this. I did sankalpa seva for one day in my home as given in sri ragavendra mahima part one, through that also i didnt get any solution. my relatives also scolding me for not geeting job, i just frustrated, dnt knw any way…

    I had suffered lot during searching job in Chennai, almighty only know that. If any one give me suggestion i will take that as words of Sri gururaja.

    I am asking all devotees of Sri ragavendra to pray for me to get job soon. because i read in mahima book that when Sri gururaja devotees prayed for others problem means he will clear the problem soon. this is because he never makes his bhakthas words false…

    Plz once again asking pray for me, i am in very much difficult situation.

      Have faith. It takes time for our wishes to be fulfilled. God tests those who believe in him. So, keep praying. Try, try and at last you will succeed. So, keep praying, and keep applying for jobs.
      A great job might be waiting for you, it is just time.

    Om Shri Raghavendraya namaha! thanks for posting the speech.I have one suggestion to give to people who have posted their problems here..Do sankalpa seva for three days minimum. if possible go to mantralya and do it there. forget all your sorrows and concentrate on rayaru and Sri Hari..dont pray for miracles or anything. just pray for your soul to cleance of all the karmas..rayaru will be pleased with this kind of worship..he knows to give u what and me..he will give u the best..I have seen a great change in my life after this type of things comes in search of you..never ask him for this and that..
    listen and read more about rayaru and his works.listen to songs and stotras..forgive everyone and pray for the world..look beyond
    your worries and problems..

    • Posted by meeraghu on July 28, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      There are many photos of Rayaru posted on this blog. Take a print out, place it in your pooja room. Take shower early morning, and without eating or drinking anything perform pooja. Pooje can be as simple as lighting 2 lamps, offering flowers and with utmost devotion saying “Sree Raghavendraya Namaha”. Do as many namaskaras as you can.

      There are several devotional songs posted on this blog. You can recite those.
      That’s all is needed to get his blessings.
      May Sree Raghavendra Swamy bless you and remove all obstacles and shower his choicest blessings on you.

    i want to a share a miracle i experienced in my life recently. i had a small boil on my left eye and went to show it to the doctor, the doctor after doing some initial tests ,suspected it could be glaucoma(a serious eye disorder) and recommended to go for a detailed test at narayana netralaya. i went to narayana netralaya and when the doctor was testing my eyes ,i just prayed to shri guru raghavendra swami at that point of time.
    after all the tests , the report came and to my pleasant surprise the test report and the doctor herself confirmed that my eyes were normal and i had no glaucoma.
    tears rolled down my eyes and i could do nothing but continue praying shri guru raghavendraya namaha.

    I love Sri Guru Raghavendraswamy so much that He is my father, mother, God and all. I have experienced many miracles. I have seen Panchamukhi in my dream first and visited the place after 6 months and astonished to see that it was exactly what I had seen in my dream. Today I have gained good position, blessed with a good family. Now I am praying Sri Guru rayaru everyday only for showing my love to Him. He has granted more than what I have asked for. Any devotee who has faith in Sri Guru rayaru will experience good things in his life

    Hi Meeraji,

    I am not claiming my self to be a devotee of Guru Raghavendra but I love him and I see him as a great soul who can create wonders at any time in our life. Meeraji what I observed in your words is that you started hating yourself.Please do not mistake me. I would want you to try these things-

    1.Please observe silence for 1 hour everyday.You may do this by closing your eyes and concentrating on your breath.
    2.Start loving your soul which is situated in centre below the heart and keep saying I love you as many times as possible and everyday.Keep saying the –




    You will find world of difference. Keep listening to good music and good songs.Find out what is your intrest.DEVELOP SOME HOBBIES. Dont worry for something which has happened to you .think for how can you improve your life.Dont worry Meera.Nothing you have lost.You have gained lots of experience.Be calm and show love(Internal shift)and you will come out well with Gurus grace.


    • Posted by Devotee of Rayaru on January 17, 2011 at 9:25 am

      Hi Meeraji,

      I know its your courage which has helped you till now. See you had the strength to face all these things till now and that shows god wants you and he loves you.. He loves you because your are his wonderful daughter. I think genuinely that god is washing all the karma of yours. Please be calm… God is there in every form even he wants to help you badly just some things are keeping him very busy. Please don’t lose heart.. we are all there for you… we will pray for you to give you peace of mind.. you have already faced everything in life.. this is the time to settle down. please surrender to our karuna mahima guru deva.. he will surely take you to the place where you will forget all your worries.. things happened and happening have definitely some good reason behind it. being humans we can’t understand.. Loove god once and he will give 100 times of what has showed to him.. I REPEAT RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY LOVES YOU AND HE WANTS YOU TO BE PEACEFUL. I know its easy for me to tell but I seriously pray for you and request god to show his blessings upon you… Please love yourself.. whatever has happened you dint have any control on it… so please forget it.. we are all in the same kind of situation. some are easy and some are difficult to face.. but at the end only God can show ultimate path.. wts the use of that life which doesn;t have any painful moments. Pain is the best teacher.. please changes yourself and look around and you may lakhs of people suffering like us.. so try to help them.. dedicate your life for god and for people who are suffering like you.. They will see god in you.. PLease be Calm… Rayaru always loves and blesses you.. so please change your mind.. nothing can be achieved through death.. its just the extension of problems.. Always pray,pray and pray.. thats it. I know this wont convince you.. but please try … I will pray for you and soon you will realise rayaru’s blessings.. we all love you..

    I am a devotee of Sri Guru Ragavendra. This speech is very nice and gives peace to who read this. I got married in 2003. I am praying for getting a child. I am much worried about this. I am constantly praying Sri Ragavendra for getting a child. But Why I do not know Ragavendra not answering my prayer. I don’t know what to do. I am confused that my prayer is listened by Him. Ragavendarar should answer me soon.

    May be you are right, but a person who has only suffered negative things ion life and never had any rayers answerd is bound to become like this. If a person is cheated constantly by people and god, how is he or she susoed to behave? If god is not helping me what am i supsoed to do? My problems are because of what happend continuously in my lfe, karthikji, can adoctor undo all that? Only god can!

    Get Well Soon!!!

    Om Sri Ragavendraya Namaha!!!


  121. Posted by meera on January 6, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    dear karthikji,
    thank you for your reply. Even i wouldn’t have asked devotees to pray for my death if i had not been so badly bruised in my life. Everything has gone so miserable.For the past 15 years whatever i had prayed and asked for have always been not given to me and worse, my life was going more and more disastrous. Each time i recover something even more serious will happen. Karthikji, every moment my heart has been crying to GOd and nothing good has been happpening till this moment. I feel like banging my head on the wall for the way i am always answered in the negative by God. EVen yesterday i suffered. Karthikji, please tell me whatever mannath i am ready to do provided god erases what happened to me last 2 years. Now what has hapened has damaged me so much that it is now impossible for me to get up from that blow and i will never be able to live eacefullly. already my ears are damaged because of the excessive stress and my severe crying every day, my head illness has returned and i do not know which doctor can cure it, as no doctor has been able to help me for years to gether. Nothing can come back in my life and nothing can make me eaceful after what has happneed. People who cheated me are happily living and now last 10 days even worse situations have hapened that i am lanning to leave my job also. all the years of struggle and good name have vanished in the last few years and i have ermanantly earned bad name. Karthikji, i hav eeven ket a mannath to raghavendra swamy that i will visit mantralaya every year as lon as i am allive, do anna dhana and any other mannth ossible, do as much help i can money wise if any oor raghavendr devotee wants to visit mantralaya for His darshan, i myself have visited mnatralaya in 2005 and rayed for something, but it didn’t hapen and i am in dying condition now. I am not blaming rayaru, i still cannot belivee that sai baba and guru can destroy me so much. Nothing can make me younger and get me back my lost years that i have spent in crying and illness and wokring hard and showing devotion to people who ditched me so badly. I have faced negative answers from God for many many years tha tthe very thought of praying has made me very very sick now. I do not want to commit suicicde, in fact i do not want to die, i want to live eacefully, but for that what hapened in the ast few years have to ve reversed. I have alwyas accepted all the negative things that happened in my life all these years and moved on with same faith and love for God. I was young that t ime and still looked forward to life. But now I am old and i cannot live alone in my life neither can i marry with all my problems. How muchever i have faith in God, can any god return my past? It is a torture to goa and beg God in temples every day, crying ublically in temples knowing fully well that god also cannot undo what happened in the ast, atleast the last 2 years. I go to temples and come back feeling even more sick. all these years any bad things happene i go to god and hel me get out and look forward to future. For the first time i want god to work on my past because i cannot bear how i have lost my life now. I am 44 years unmarried with all the problems. I am tired of my illness also and i do not know who can cure me now. I wish god does extraordinary miracle and reverses all that happened but such things never hapen not eveni n my thologies. So i am forced to ask for death. now my only rayer to rayaru is not to make me commit suicide, i do not want a disgraceful death nand bring trouble to my old arents, atleast god should give me death and relive me of my problems. Whatever hapens now i cnnaot be hapy because i have lost all the time in my life to live. Thank you karthikji still for your kind reply, but nothing can help me. Whatever devotion and faith i have for gos, iwill He undo what happened? will he make me younger to have a normal life? I am sorry for writing such a negative mail, i was one person full of life loving everything in life always laughing and very active. I have ebcome a vegetable now hating every moment in life, how will i work wih this condition? I do not wish to get married att his age and what choice do i have but look for death?


  122. Posted by meera on January 5, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Dear raghavendraswamy devotees,
    I had written a long post on August 1,2010 which is still there. As i wrote I am an unmarried woman of 44 years old. My life has been going on only miserable day by day. I cannot understand how a person vcanb e unlucky for 20 years. Now i am in the peak of depression and i have prayed enough to sai baba and raghavendr swamy. Unlike all others who kep asking guru to help them in future, i am asking about my past. I cannot bear what happpened to me for the last 7 years. I had prayed to sai baba to cure me of my illness which i was suffering from 1995. I had beeen at the feet of sai baba for days togetehr to cure me of illness and get me out of depression in job. But i ended up in the company of wrong people and now i am totally cheated disgraced, lost my romotion after working for 13 hours a day, the person who was showring care and affection on me has turned my enemy, many bad things and today we are fighting like hell. I cannot bear what all hapened and god also ditched me making whatever roject i did a failure. My frustration knows no bounds and my illnesses have increased. I do not want to get married at this age it s not acceptabl to me though people tell me that this is what god wants. God may want anything for us, but we cannot accept everything. If god only wanted best for us, why did i suffer for 15 years and lost my life totally. I was doing so well in job atleast until this person came and cheated me. I have also done enoughh vrats for sai baba and today i am feeling so irritated with baba also. My humble request to sai baba and raghavendra devotees to kind ly pray for my death because nothing can make me hapy in this world. I cannot forget wht all hapened and even like a fool so desperate i am asking guru to change what hapened in the past though i know it is not possible. But nothing else can give me peace and happiness. If i were younge i would have forgotten all and looked forward to. But suffering like this at this age and having no life has made me so sick. The erson who chased me and cheated me is behaving so ruthlessly and because of this cruelty don to me i am feeling breathless and i am not able to complete my jobs also. I lost my romotion also and i am so so unhapy. I do not want to die. want to live haily, serve god, serve all the poor people i want to use a art of my earnings to help the n needy people, i am earning well now but because of what happened i am in n ocondition to continue and so have decided to leave job. after that i do not know how i am going to live without job also. I wanted to share apart of my earnings to the society since it gives me lot of peace and i eel it is my duty to give something to oor since god has iven me money, but all this is ossibl only if God gives me back all that i lost, reverses all that hapened in the last few years atleast what hapened in the last 2 years. Like a fool every day night i cy to god that next day morning everything should have been erased but the next day is same. Now each day i dread to get u and go through all the ressure in my head chest and then get up lonely from bed and go to office. Please devotees, kindly ray for my death because that is the only solution. Even if i have immense faith in rayaru, he is not going to get me back my years where i should have lived instead of suffering, i was so unthusastic and looking forward to life, all that is killed. Icannot bear many hinhgs that hapened now, rayaru knows how i am screaming to him every day. i do not want to live like this, rayaru is not answering my rayer asking him to give me death also!


    • Posted by Karthik Krishnamoorthy on January 6, 2011 at 10:43 am

      Dear Meera,

      I know you are badly hurt as things are not happening as you think in your life. I know how it feels!! It is a painful feeling. I would like to point out couple of things from your post and solutions for it.

      1. Here in this blog, we people don’t pray for people thats happens bad to them. So kindly don’s use phrases like “Please devotees, kindly ray for my death because that is the only solution”

      2. Have faith in him and don’t scream it would not work, Only your love, affection and devotion to god would help you.

      3. If things don’t happen as you think then think that rayaru as in stored something better for you in your life, when the right opportunity comes that would be blessed upon you.

      4. Please dont compare about Gods here, like Sai Baba or Rayaru and have faith in both of them

      Couple of Solution, Which i follow it

      1. Chanting of “Om Sri Ragavendraya Namaha” 108 times everyday
      2. Recite Ragavendra Sostram everyday
      3. If possible try to perform Sankalpa Seva at your house itself
      4. Try to visit Mantralya, Peaceful place, stand in front of him and ask for his help to solve your problem.

      Lets Perform our duties first, before we expect something from him.

    Hii All,

    I have been married for 2 yrs and not blessed with kid. Came to know from doctor that both of us are having health issues and it is not possible to have kids from the initial inspection. Can you all please pray to Rayaru that all my poorva janma karmas’ should go and let my life be an example for Rayaru’s krupe. I believe in him but sometimes this pain takes all the good things from me… We need your prayers.. Please help us..

      Dear Devotee,

      I could understand how you would feel about it, Kindly recite “Rayaru Sostra” and “Om Sri Ragavendraya Namaha” 108 times everyday. If possible try to perform “Sankalpa Seva”, at your house itself.

      You will get all the blessing from Rayaru

      “Om Sri Ragavendraya Namaha”

    • Posted by Karthik Krishnamoorthy on November 30, 2010 at 10:10 pm

      Dear Devotee,

      I know how it feels when someone cheats you, here are few suggestion for you.

      1. You need to have faith on some one, Please dont use words like “Baba also cheated me”, and if tell out things like this then there is no point of doing vrats and seva’s to any god.

      2. Dont demand anything specifically from God. Pray to god in General like, (Peace, Marriage, Job, etc,etc.,) Rest lies in his hands, he will give u the best always.

      3. Thank God for the good things he has performed, i feel even the incident happened to you in your life is also a good thing, where if you had know that this person is cheater after wedding, your life will be hectic and terrible. Thank him for that.

      4. Pray sincerely you will find everything good in life.

      Sorry if i was rude.

      “Om Sri Ragavendraya Namaha”


    • Posted by A devotee on December 1, 2010 at 3:15 pm

      Thanks karthik garu.

      I know,every body will tel the same what you said to me.My brain might accept it,but my heart is not accepting.i want to die in my guys hand,that much i love him still now.
      I know,only solution to my problem is to end my life.already i tried consuming didnt work.i am alive.just today,i went to womens police station and filed a case against that guy.if this also doesn’t work out,im sure,i’ll become mad.
      Before turning as a mental,its better to die,thats what now,i am praying to rayaru,to take away my life.
      As a last trial,i posted in this forum to know,if there any way that,guy comes back to me.
      I know,every body will tel the same. And i am not scolding baba from my heart.its coming out of baba didnt answer my prayers and he left me.
      I am sorry,i would not have posted here.its my foolishness,to expect a answer from devotees,that how that guy comes back to me.

      Karthik,one thing i want to ask. .why shouldn’t i expect a miracle from rayaru? Is that wrong? Atleast,i want answer from rayaru,that where my life will flow? When the day will come,where i smile whole heartedly?


      • Posted by meeraghu on December 1, 2010 at 5:27 pm

        Your comments made me think so much about God the past two days and hence I decided to comment.
        As Karthik rightly said” We should never pray for anything materialistic”. God and all the Gurugalu, including Baba, know more than all the materialistic things we ask for. God might have something different stored ahead for you.
        Just have faith, and leave the rest for God to solve.

      • Posted by Rayaru devotee on December 16, 2010 at 1:52 am


        I know how you are feeling because same thing had happened in my life. even I loved a guy but he didn’t want to marry me for his own stupid reasons. even I tried committing suicide many times. but I realized later that I am ending my life for somebody who doesn’t even care for me whereas my parents love me so much. from that day I started praying to my guru deva that he should show me a way to come out of this. Trust me it helped me so much.. slowly I started feeling better and I continued to concentrate on my studies and job search. After getting a good job, am married to a very good guy who loves me so much and I also love him more that I loved that foolish guy. I know all these things happened to me only because of my loving rayaru. I request you come out of this pain as early as possible. Start going to temples, never be alone , always read about the miracles god has performed and start living for your parents. Parents are gods on the earth. take care of them. Love them… forget about everything and forgive that person. Let it goooo… Rayaru always there to help you.. he looves you.. I will definitely pray for you.. God always give what we deserves not the one what we desires… trust me dear friend… hope you will come out of this soon and post a miracle… Rayaru bless you always.

    Om Shree Raghavendraya Namaha

    All should do Ekadhasi Upavasam. Even Raghavendra Swami has told. It will burn out one’s sin’s like anything. Lord Narayana has himself told that it is the highest form a devotee can do for the almighty.
    As soon as i heard it am doing shudha upavasam (without even drinking water) for the past 1 year. I will continue to the rest of my life. With my advice 5 other people are doing the same.
    Everyone please start doing it, our guru Raghavendra swami has told.

    Usually 108 times. Doing the seva depends on how time you can devote. 3, 5, 7 9, 11 days..

    Hi Meera,
    Your article is very touching. I have started chanting the guru mantra 21 times a day. But I want to do seva at home itself. You can think it as a Vrata.
    Could you please let me know how many times I need to chant the mantra ‘sri raghavendraya namaha’. is it 108 and for how many days to fulfil a desire.

    Thanks for ur response.

    Thank you for posting such rayaru’s last speech. I am going through some tough times in life right now and I am praying to guru raghavendra from a while to answer my prayers. The situation has gotten better after I have surrendered myself to rayaru. A lot of you have said that we shouldn’t ask rayaru to give us this and that but just pray to him. After I pray to him, I ask him to fix the issue I am going through and to give positive results at the end. Is that wrong?

No matter how much ever devotion i have for raghavendra swamyo r any other god, my years are not going to come v=back, what i lost is lost and i can nevere get over the ain! What cinjustice done to me will remain forevr! May be illness may get curd after some years, but is it any use already? i los tm y best yearsw forl iving and what cheating i have undergone can not be undone? iam ready to forgive people for cheating if my life was also not lost! But still thank you very much for your loving and kind words!

    Hey Meera,

    Just read ur long mail regarding ur sorrows in life.. U do not worry.. As the saying goes ” Count ur blessings rather than sorrows” Everything will be allright… There are always ups and downs in life.. Keep praying God.. Belief is everything.. Rayaru is known for doing miracles when nothing seems to be proper… He helps during hopeless times… 🙂

    Keep faith and enjoy life as it comes,


  140. Posted by Meera on August 1, 2010 at 3:45 am

    Dear all devotees of rayaru, I wish i could also be writing miracles in my life, but i have been only constantly unhappy and sickness in my head for hte last 15 years. what all i was suffering rayaru knows. I am unmarried woman of 43 years age, i was suffering from illness in my head for 15 years. I had lots of treatment, went to many temles and rayed to shirdi saibaba day and night, nothing worked. But i worked very hard in my job and earned a lot of good name from m y seniors. But i got traed by false promises from some one left my good position only to be cheated by that person, I started fighting with him and today earned enemies including my previous job people, present ones and this person who promised. My work was constantly becoming unsucccessful even though i worked for more than 12 hours a day. Last 2 years i was disgraced and humiliated and i was in dee depression. Coule of months ago i lost my promotion and i was insulted very badly. 2 years ago my illness in my head increased and today i am standing like an orhan with no ersonal life, sickness increased, crying old parents, my career lost and only pain and bitterness. My sister also is not happy and she also doesn’t have any issues. I have done mistakes in my life and i am paying for it. I had been running between temples to cure my illness and make me and my family hapy but last 7 years my life was becoming disaster day by day. In 2005 i vidited mantralaya and nava brindaana in Humi. Nothing worked and today i want to die. I do not want my old parents to go through the pain of losing me, so i pray to rayaru to givve me and my parents death together immedaitely. We do not want to live anymore after losing a lot in our life. Peole kee saying live for others, do social service, all is karma, but nothing consoles me. I had been acceting every bad thing thinking that some day it will become alright, but now my age is too much and what hapened last 2 years has made me angruy with all the gods. In my life god is there, only to hit me and punish me instantaneously. He is not kind and forgiving and loving to me. last 2 years i have been keeing many vrats, asking god to fulfill one wish, not only did that hapen, he hit me with failures and delays in my work and ultimately made me fail in th romotion 2 months ago which i was due last year itself. now it is clear to me i do not have god’s grace, so i cannot live without His grace. It is my strong prayer to rayaru to be kind eneough and give me death so that atleast in my next birth i would like to have a normal life. I did not do any harm to anyone in this birth, i have only helped peole as much as i can. But i do not want to live the rest of my life with the feeling of having lost!


    • Posted by balaji davey on August 2, 2010 at 6:48 am

      Dear Meera,

      I understand the feelings that you are going through. You had mentioned the various negative happenings that have happened to you during the last couple of years. I am really sorry to read that a person is undergoing so much difficult times that a cry for death becomes the last resort. But Meera, Please do not feel lost. I can give at this moment of your life only two words to hold on to: Trust ( in our Guru Sri Raghavendra) and Hope (For a better future Through our Guru Sri Raghavendra) Please hold on to him. Due to some reasons beyond our comprehension, you might have had to undergo all this trauma. But better things might be just ahead of you. Just keep going.

      Have unquestionable faith in our Guru Sri Raghavendra. If your heart is with pure devotion to Him, He will not let you down though we may undergo these tough times due to our Karma. Do not lose hope. Please continue your prayers to him. Do some Sadhanas or Sevas to him. Promise him that you will come to Mantralaya again once the difficult phase is over. These are not to please him but these will give us some spiritual energy to face the situations. Take care of your parents and our Guru Will take care of you.

      May our Guru Sri Raghavendra be always with you.

  149. Posted by raghunandan on June 8, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    Dear friends,
    I shall narrate to you a incident in which i was about to die. I was in US and was leaving to atlanta to my sister’s house. I took the morning flight (saturday). After my security check i realised that i had not taken my tablets to control my blood sugar. Somehow i cudgeled and decided not to take any sweets or coffee or rice for that matter to maintain my blood sugar. Everything was fine until saturday night. At around 1am my pulse started beating more and started sweating a lot. I realised that my sugar level had increased and desperately needed tablets to survive. I was 100% sure that if i could get a tablet that day, my survival chances were bleak. I was on B1 visa and was not in a position to afford a hospitalisation in US. Moreover in US they don;t give these medicines without a valid prescription.

    I told my brother in law about my condition. We had drive atleast 20 miles to go to the nearest pharmacy stores. I donot remember its name, but went to the store at around 1;30am. I told the store keeper that i was diabetic and i desperately wanted medicine with rosiglitazone – 1mg+ metformin 500 mg combination. At first he did not believe me but when i told him the generic name he was convinced that i was diabetic and he could see me drenched in sweat(in the midlle of night!). He said that he was not in a position to give me medicine as i did not have US doctor’s prescription and went inside.

    I prayed to guru raya to save my life. Suddenly the man came back and gave me two tablets of the said combination and told me that one was for tonight and the one was for next day morning. I was so thankfull to him that i felt that it was rayaru who came as pharmacist and saved my life. he asked me not to narrate this story as long as i am in US as this would jeopardize his job. I assured him and left the place. I took nearly one hour to regain normal state.

    Two things I have understood from this incident:
    1. Never play with your life saving medicines
    2. Rayaru was with me at this critical juncture and but cannot afford to repeat these mistakes again in my life.

    To remember this incident I have a life size photo of sri rayaru in my living room. everyday i pray to him without asking for anytthing.

      Dear Vaibhav,

      AS the moderator rightly said, not everything happens at your pace but only at His pace. We have to keep our faith intact in those testing times. Believe that Everything is for good only. As a person faced / facing the same situations like you i will tell you my opinion.

      Whether it is health or wealth, it is only we who have to put the efforts. Only the results are made in our favour by Guru. Without putting our effort there wont by any result. To have the strength and endurance to put the effort i frequently take vratam for 21 days. During those 21 days i constantly pray to our Guru, morning i set aside separate time for chanting, parayan and meditation (say 30 mts) I avoid TV etc. Just like how devout people put malai for sabarimalai. For our guru, it is called Sankalpa Seva. (
      Do what ever is possible depending on your health and surrounding situation. Definetely our Guru will bless you with good results. Dont lose hope. Definetly you will get positive results through the blessing of our Guru. He will never leave you.

    This happened last July. I was hospitalised for suspected brain fever. The doctor told my children that chances of my survival are very less. Even ICU, i was reciting rayara stotra many times silently several times. On the 4th day of my unconscious state, I slowly got back to my senses. I remembered sri rayaru mentally several times. Now I am doing well, back to my job. I can never forget Raghavendra Karunya.

    Dear Madam,
    Thanks a lot for this wonderful site. For sure GURU RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY bless all his devotees.
    Today what I am, is because of HIM only. I pray HIM to bless my family also always with HIS loving grace.
    I have read 6 volumes of Raghavendra, the saint of Mantralaya, an English translation of Sri Amman Sathianathan’s book. It is really wonderful to read. I am also reading the Kannada book
    ‘Kaliyuga Kalpatharu’ by Sri Raja Gururajacharya, one of the descendants of Rayara family. It narrates Rayar’s avataras soo beautifully that you don’t feel like keeping the book down. A must read for those who can read Kannada.
    Prabho, always keep your loving hands on my head.

    I take the privilege to share with all of you , About the miracle i have seen today. After completing my meditation in the early morning i went to our living room where i have a Photo of Rayaru. As usual i was praying to him & when opened my eyes i could not believe in what i was seeing – Yes ” RAYARU WAS ALL SMILING & DISPLAYING HIS VARIOUS POSTURES ” & I COULD SEE A STRIKING LIGHT FROM THE PHOTO.” Dear friends this experience was so heart filling that i could not murmur a word & tears started rolling out. It was a very rare occurunce & rayaru has once again indicated that you are never alone when you are one with him.

    May Rayaru shower his blessing to this whole mankind & the devotees always.

    Guru Raghavendraya namaha.

      • When I read last speech of My Guru Sri Ragavendra I was very excited when
        I heard his Brindavan Dharasan. As I am devotee of my guru Ragavendra since my childhood to my life time,I don’t know how I felt when I read this his last speech on the online,thanks to the devotee who made it available on the online
        and we have blessed with god to read this to-day. He is such a powerful god,
        he will come to our house if we simply chant his name,we don’t have to go to
        Mandralayam to see him,he will bless us even if we simply chant his name.
        I am used to worship him m every Thrusday by chanting slogam on him.
        We cannot count his miracles even after entering into jeeva samadhi.
        Definitely we can find ourselves what he has done for us and what he will decide
        for our better future. Wait and see.

    During 2007 end Raghavendra Came in my dream and since then i have become his ardent devotee. I have started going to Mantralaya atleast 3-4 times a year. Everytime i go, i take a 21 day vrata by tying a thread around my wrist. Always some goods news comes eighter during the 21 days or after that. Its all the grace of Guru Raghavendra.

    Two weeks back i read this site as well as another site about the miracles of Raghavendra. In that it was mentioned about Mritike. I did not understood what it is and tried to search it in Google but found no answer. I left it at that. After that i went to Mantralaya along with three friends. After offering pranams and pradakshina, i was waiting for my friends. One of my friend came to me and said i have spoken to the ARchakar and he has promised to give Mritike. I was literally shocked. Just a week back i was searching for what is the meaning of Mritike and now in this trip itself i am going to get it. Later I understood that it is the holy sand and i got two packs of it.

    In this trip to Mantralaya we also purchased Parimala Prasadam one packet and four of us had each one. We did not buy anything for our family. Next day i asked my cousin should i buy prasadam for house( i should not have asked but straight away should have purchased it) . He said not necesaary and so i left it. We boarded the train and next to us were a elderly couple with family. We just chatted with them and suddenly the elderly person asked straight in my face–Did you buy Parimala Prasadam? I felt as if Someone slapping me for not buying. I replied, That i have come to Mantralayam nearly 12-15 times but have never gone without buying and no one has ever asked me also. . This time only i did not buy and you are also asking me. Immediately that person opened his bag and gave one packet of parimala prasadam…..Tears filled my eyes…..What else can i say about our gurus grace. To anyone one who is reading this and is searching for genuine solutions….Please Pray with whole hearted Devotion to Guru Raghavendra. He listens our prayers cries and will give us solutions and help us in some unexpeted way. He will never let us down. This is SATYAM.

    It was really wonderful to see so many devotees of Raghavendra Swamy. My Mom is the bigggest devotee of Raghavendra Swamy and from her I and my family became devotees of Raghavendra Swamy. Out of all the stories written above, for sure its understood that Raghavendra Swamy makes impossible things possible. Even we had seen lot of miracles in our life and that has made our belief stronger on Rayaru. Also, now i have decided to pray Raghavendra Swamy for the most waaiting wish that i have and i m sure Raghavendra Swamy will definately fulfill that.

    Also thanks for posting the last speech of Rayaru as i never heard of it

Keep praying,Gururaya wiil help you to realise him. As he has said, do your duties first . Trust me he is always there for us and all those who pray to him.

    Dear Smt Meera,

    It was really nice to read your article and all devotees experience. I live in Virginia and I too have experienced many miracles in the past. Recently I was very much upset and worried about my personal, official and social life. I was praying Rayaru to give me an answer ( which he always does in the form of dreams or some means). I was expecting an answer from him for 2 days and was really upset that i didnot get one. On one evening, i went to a neighbour’s house (who is also a rayaru devottee) and while chatting with her, he herself (who knew i am also a rayaru devotee) said tht she will give me a packet of mrithige which her mom got for her from mantralayam. I was soo moved and grateful to rayaru who has answered to my sorrow in the form of mrithige. There are lot more interesting experiences in my life. The only hope I have in life is Rayara Karuney

    Thanks for posting this article

    This is a wonderful post. Please keep sharing the miracles of Sri Guru Raghavendra. If you pray with devotion the result will be definately fruitful. We should not always expect a miracle. We have to realise that we only get what we deserve. Guru Raghavendra will listen to our prayers and do the best that could happen to us

    Thanks for posting this. I used to do Raghavendra pooja and keep vrat every thursday. But later on I stopped keeping vrat for couple of reasons. One being I was getting weaker. And sometime later i stopped doing pooja also due to timing constraints and just offer prayers on thursdays. But now I am in distress and I feel bad to accept the fact that I think of God when I need something in my life again.

    I will start doing pooja from this thursday and will continue it.
    Hope I will be able to go to Mantralaya (i never went there) this time when I go to India.

    Thanks for everyone for sharing their experiences.


    Meera: Awesome. May Sri Raghavendra Swamy bless you.

    Respected Sir/Madam

    During performing of sankalpa seva at home if one has to go out of home for a period of two or three days how to continue the seva. How many times pradakshina and namaskaram should be done during sankalpa seva at home. Please answer my query

    You have to plan doing seva when you are sure you are going to be home for the number of days you are performing the seva. You can do namaskara starting from odd numbers like 1, 5, 7, 9 so on…

  178. Posted by Srushti on June 25, 2009 at 3:55 am

    Thanks a lot Meera. I have gone through the sankalpa seva site. I have few queries,
    1.I stay in Bangalore; I work for a software company and now its bit difficult for me to go Mantralaya. Can I take this Sankalpa at my home?
    2.I am not clear about performing the Seva; I mean how to worship the unpeeled coconut? Do I need to place this coconut on top of tamra tambige? And how to do Pooja of the coconut (as my mom do all poojas with madi I never done this)?
    3.Can I take pradakshina around this coconut?

    Hi Srushti, 1. As the link also says there is no need to go to Mantralaya. You can do at home also.
    2. You don’t need to worship the coconut, just place it near the God and don’t move it until the seva is performed.
    3. No, do the pradakshine around the Photo of Rayaru. Hope this helps.


  179. Posted by meeraghu on June 24, 2009 at 6:40 am

    Hi Srushti,
    My mother, Sister and I myself follow the procedure as done in Mantralaya. Attached is the link for the same.

    If you are staying outside India, than place a coconut in your pooja room, do the sankalpa, and once you finish the Seva, next day break the coconut and prepare some sweet dish.

    When I do seva, I eat just one meal. No breakfast, no dinner, no snacks. No onion, garlic, or any store brought food. Sleep alone, and not on a bed. Don’t watch TV. Keep reciting Sree Raghavendraya Namaha. Also, perform Rayara Bhajane in the evening. Many songs have been posted on this blog.

    Tomorrow is Thursday, so good day to start the seva.

    May Rayaru fulfill all your wishes and bless you.

    Let me know if you need any help at all.

    • Posted by Amitha on June 6, 2012 at 1:12 pm

      Hello Meera: You have mentioned in “sankalpa” if you are outside india to ‘place a coconut in pooja room and use it after the seva is finished’. Here in US, except in big cities, coconut from indian store or other grocery stores do not have much shelf life. Many times I get it broken at the store to get good coconut. Appreciate your suggestions in my situation to do sankalpa seva which I did in Mysore/Bangalore without any doubt about freshness of coconut. – Thanks


  180. Posted by Srushti on June 24, 2009 at 1:58 am

    Hi Meera,

    can you please tell me Shri raghavendra Swamy seva vidhana? its niyamas? Please reply. i will start it from tomorrow else from next week.



    • Posted by padmanabharao on August 15, 2009 at 12:01 am

      You can do pooja of Rayaru at home. Please keep Raghavendra swamiji’s photo in your pooja place. Offer dry coconut , dates and sugar candy as naivedyam. readhis mahima and mentally recite his stotram. this is the simplest way of getting his grace. after you recite and offer naivedyam do at least 9 pranams to Guru.


  181. Posted by padmini srivatsa on June 23, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    Yes Dear Meera

    that is v.v.v. true … my life is a living example of it … hmm i dont know about a mustard seed size but He kept His graceful hands on me even before i was born!!!! such is His kindness!!! I am soo glad i came across this webpage (thanks to my husband) …. everytime i think of him or come across some thing like this i feel that Rayaru keeps his hands on my head and my emotions stir and tears flow down!! such is His love and presence!! take care dear

    may Rayaru and Srinivasa bless everybody!!!!

    Padmini, I was refering to mustrad seed size for our bhakthi, and in return Rayaru will give blessing which surpasses the mountain size.


  182. Posted by meeraghu on June 23, 2009 at 1:59 pm

    Thanks very much for sharing with us the miracle of Rayaru. It is just amazing to read and listen the miracles of Rayaru. As I said earlier also in one of the comments, that’s why Rayaru is called “Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu”. My Mom always says that” Rayaru, will never ever forget his devotees, and if you give him Bhakthi which is the size of a mustard seed, he will give back the size of a mountain”. So, true isn’t it?


  183. Posted by Padmini Srivatsa on June 23, 2009 at 1:53 pm



    THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR POSTING RAYARU’S LAST SPEECH … it is a great asset which can never be lost!! since everybody is telling about Sri Rayaru’s miracles, i too want to share my expirence!!!
    my mom traveled to Mantralaya from Tirupati (my home towm) without knowing she was pregnant … she came to know abt it after reaching Mantralaya … since it is a v.long journey my grand mother was vv.worried about my mom … so she prayed Sri Rayaru that if i was born safely, she would name me after his “Parimala Grantha” … and later my mom reache home safely with Sri Rayaru’s grace … the actual miracle comes now … my mom had a lot of complications when i was born and the doctors had no hope on me!! they could not even hear my heart beat it seems …. later the doctors decided to perform a surgery to take me out … but when i came out i was actually ALIVE!!! an was kept in the incubater!! all this has happened just because of SRI RAYARU’s grace on me and my family … finally i was named 3 names … which are Padmini( bcas my home town is tirupati), Parimala (because of SRI RAYARU’s grace) and Lakshmi (which is v.common )

    so every moment i live and breath is because of Sri Rayaru …. Also he is gracefull on me every moment of my life … my parents were worried i will not get married bcas mine is moola nakshatra … but bcas of Rayaru’s grace, i married the first alliance that came (in may 2006)which is a v.good family… every thing went on fine and later after a few months i was diagonised to have polycystic overies ( which causes infertility) … but with Rayaru’s grace i had my daughter in aug 2007 …

    see my whole life is filled with his miracles!!
    He has been with me all my life and literally kept me in his loving grace!!!

    i wish everybody happiness, health, wealth, spirituality with Rayaru’s grace!!

      Hello Everybody,

      I feel ecstatic after reading all these post and experiences. I was not a great devotee of Shree Rayaru till today. But after reading all this and my desperation to save my 11 months old daughter has made me an ardent devotee of Shree Rayaru.

      My daugther Stuti is suffering from serious heart lesion. She has Congenital Heart Disease (Pulmoanry Atresia with Ventrical Septal Defect and MAPCAs) and all the famous doctors that I have approached have expressed there in ability to operate her. The only hope I have is Shree Rayaru’s mercy and I know he would. She would be a medical miracle.

      This agony has completely changed me. I have started performing Agnihotra everyday in the morning and offering my prayers to Shree Rayaru.

      All that I have now is hope and prayers to Shri Rayaru. Hope he listens to my pray as he listens to your prayers. I request you all devotees of Shree Rayaru to pray for my daughter.

      OM NAMO SHREE RAGHAVENDRAYA NAMAH. I pray all the children to be hale and hearty.

        hello sachin,
        its really good that you started believing RAYARU, now dont worry keep faith ,Rayaru will surely bless you and your daughter, we all will pray too for your daughter.

    True, to this day He performs miracles in people’s lives from His abode in the Brindavana. 20+ years back, I was engaged to be married but was very sick.Was not even sure whether my marriage will ever take place. I prayed to Guru Rayaru fervently so did my mother and I dreamt my uncle taking me to a gathering where up on the stage is a swamiji holding a kamandal. My uncle tells me to tell Him all my troubles. And I go to the Swami and whisper in His ears. It is indeed His miracle that I got ok,and the greatest miracle of all I was married on the day of Rayaru’s Aradhana. Till today I have not related this to anyone as this miracle is so much a part of my life even today when I think of it, it brings tears to my eyes and stirs me to emotion. We always celebrate our wedding anniversary on Aradhana day .

    Thanks for sharing with all of us. It is really great to hear such miracles.

    Preethi, the only thing I can suggest is doing seva for Shri Raghavendra Swamy and also Shri Vadirajaru. Have faith in him, and he will show a way. Like they say” Where there is a will, there is a way; where there is no will, there is a hill”.

    and also i have one personal question 2 brother s an ardent devotee of shri vadirajaru.he is a dyslexia child and had suffered a lots during examination.he had been to sode twice.when ever he browses he will always look for vadiraja s still and images.he is going 2 write exam this april but v r unable 2 get a gud tutor 4 him.v all r worried about his examination.please do pray for him.can u suggest any remedy for this spiritually?


    • Posted by padmanabharao on August 14, 2009 at 11:56 pm

      You pray Rayaru or Vadirajaru, who have mystical powers of curing any disease. Your brother will be able to improve slowly as his past Karma is burnt away by Guru’s grace.Please read Raghavendra stotra at least twice a day, once in the morning after bath, again in the evening after washing hands and feet. Give him mantrakshata from any Mutt or Mantralayam to keep under his pillow.

    Hi Preethi, There is not doubt why Shri Raghavendra Swamy is called Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu. He blesses his devotees with everything they need. We just need to have the devotion and utmost faith. We need to have trust in him that even when bad things happen, they are a stepping stone for something good. I can quote many instances from my life also. Every free second, minute I have, I keep saying “Om Shree Raghavendraya Namaha”.
    I am glad you have so much trust in Shri Raghavendra Swamy. Keep posting. I have been traveling every week, so if I don’t reply it is just because I am in transit and have no network.

    Have a great 2009.

    i m preethi gururaj n i m ardent devotee of guru rayaru,,,, the first victory i got after studyin amman sathyanathan s raghavendhra mahimai ..i got the chance of visitin manthralaya 4 the 1st time.actually i had my cpt [ca entarnce exam on december 14th 2008] usually the hall tickets will be issued to the students only few days before the exam.but i had a desire to keep my hall ticket under gururaja s feet.The ticket was booked on november 20th.i returned from my college finishin my 3rd semester exam and to my surprise my dad told me that the hall ticket had come and that he had kept under gods feet.i was surprised and felt very much happy.the moment i reached manthralaya road station i wa moved to tears and i thanked god for inviting me and this was my first darshan.i sang songs in front of moola brindhavana and i sang gururaja s last song in bhairavi raga”indhu enage”.i did my exam well and as usual every student fears about their performance and the knowledge of all i cleared my exam which was declared on 16th january,and i am planning for my second trip.this clearly proved that gururaja is still alive in the brindhavana and gracing his devotees.i want gururaja to bless me and make me accomplish as a successful chartered accountant

    hello friends,this is my real experience that happened on 16-1-2009 i my self with my wife and daughter went to a shopping complex, we entered a lift to go to third floor, but suddenly power went off, we were in between second and third floor we shouted for help after some time one person came and said that we are going to on generator, but it was a false one we were suffocating inside
    my daughter and wife and were feeling panic we shouted again salesman came and you should wait till power comes,that means they are not having generator i then prayed poojaya raghaverdrya satya dharma vrathaya cha bhajatham kalpa vrikshaya namathm kamadhenave, next moment power came we got out.


  197. I just want to ask something…raghavendra swami says that the heaven’s door is closed if we dont fast on ekadashi and krishnashtami.. i didnt do fasting on ekadashi or krishnastami… 😦 will i go to hell?

    I want to do Kamadhenu Vrat. but i do not have any vrat katha. please tell me where will i get this katha book and what is the procedure of this pooja.
    Anitha, Forgive me for my ignorance, what is this vrata about?


    • Posted by padmanabharao on August 14, 2009 at 11:51 pm

      There is no separate vrata katha for this.All you have to do is keep a phtograph of Rayaru in your pooja place and offer dates and sugar candy as naivedya. Read the story of Rayaru and offer a minimum of 9 pranams to the great Gururaja.

    Major discrepancies took place in my education. i chose a field which i thought later, i should not have opted for it. I was in very much tension, there was no way looking forward, or i could come back.i prayed that oh Rarayu pave me some way as it was the question of my life and sometimes cried in front of him.

    Changes took place which only i can believe .now i am well settled in the field i wanted to be.This was only possible by shri rayarus grace. my whole life has taken a good turn.

    Not only for me, but my whole family rayaru has showered his grace.

    He is always around us, but its on us to deliver the best to him by following the good princliples in life.


  202. Posted by KaviSriGuru on November 15, 2008 at 6:24 am

    I too experienced his miracle. I was not interested in marriage..but at one point I noticed my parents are much worried . Inspite of their full effort no alliance was suiting to me. Then I prayed to Lord Sri Raghavendra Swamy. Then I got married. The miracle is my husband’s name is GURU RAGHAVENDRA. I still feel that this not mere coincidence but Rayaru has personally sent this Raghavendra on earth for me. This makes me feel that I’m Blessed.
    Om Sri Raghavendraya namaha.

      my mom had heart attack they performed angioplasty, next day complication came doctor told that heart got ruptured, she may not withstand open heart surgery also the rupture had to heal on its own, that is only solution he told, i kept praying to raghvendra keeping one hand in her heart, she was unconcious and in ventilator, nextday she recovered due to rayars grace, doctor told it was miracle. The miracle Rayar grace not only for his adrent devotees, who knows all dharma, shastras and purnobodha sostra, i didnt even know purnabodha sostra, this proves that rayar indeed is athayantha dhayala, when i was 7 years old i got fear of ghost, and wouldnt come out, my mom took me to rayaru and had padodaka for 3 days it had vanashied, even now in my dreams i had got trouble form evil sprits i would rayaru mantra Om shree raghavendraya namaha, i would immediately come out of the dream, even when i had utered narayana, there was no rescue, this shows that our guru still alive, there can be moksha by gurus grace only. Note that all the above experience happened in my life, even though im not a great devotee as all otheres do..


  204. Posted by Prathibha on November 14, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    Even I have experienced that Shri Guru will create miracle. I wanted a mutual exchange for my engineering seat as I wanted to stay with my parents. But unfortunately I did not get engg. seat in my native place.So I had placed an ad for mutual exchange.It was thursday I was praying and waiting for call from someone who can mutually exchange the seat with me. It was 10 pm and I went to bed. Before going to bed I prayed.. please Raghavendra swamy.. help me.. and u know wht… next minute I got a call from a person who wanted to exchange. So finally I stayed with my parents.Now I am luking for job.. and I am sure Shri Guru will help me.
    Om Raghavendraya Namah.

    I have good faith on swami.He has made my life.
    I vl try hard to follow the path shown by our Guru.
    Swami vl bless those who belive in him.


  206. Hi Meera,

    Sure i will share what little i know. Amavasya is when offerings to departed souls are made (Pithru). The speciality with Mahalaya Amavasya is that offerings can be made to all departed relatives (including in-laws,and relatives on one”s mother’s and father’s side. Of course people follow other austerities and abstinence.


  207. Posted by meeraghu on September 16, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    Hi Ramesh,
    Yes, I know. I was however not sure what to write; since it is done with so much madi. I have a post about Mahalaya Amavasya. If you have any details, and don’t mind sharing it, let me know. I will post it.


  208. Hi Meera,
    Mahalaya Paksha has just commenced do you have any comments and updates?


  209. Posted by meeraghu on September 12, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    Thanks much, Ramesh.


  210. Thank you very much meera, I pray to Rayaru for your and your family’s well being and prosperity.


  211. Posted by meeraghu on September 11, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    Hi Ramesh,
    Awesome, and I am speechless. There is no doubt Shri Rayaru has blessed you like he has to many millions. Thanks so much for sharing this. I am going to share your story with everyone I know.

    Thanks again.

    May Shri Rayaru Shower his Choicest blessings on your family.


  212. Name: Ramesh Vittal
    place: coimbatore

    My wife and I are ardent devotees of Sri Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy. There
    have been many miracles in our lives. I owned a flat in Chennai that i
    wanted to sell. every attempt would end in failure as there was some
    litigation in the land. Finally a person gave advance but kept on delaying
    the final payment. We kept praying to the Lord, one day we got a call and
    went to chennai for registration. During the registration the lady buying
    the flat told me”till yesterday i was confused about buying this flat and
    went to an astrologer who told me not to worry and gave me this photo….she
    pulled out Sri Gur Raghavendra’s photo from her hand bag. I was
    Next i fell seriously ill and was diagnosed with 3 blocks in my heart and
    told to go for by pass surgery immediately. We again prayed to Sri Guru
    Raghavendra and Lo behold I got a call from an old business associate of
    mine from Bombay telling me NOT to go for of his miracles
    later. I am fully cured now without any surgery. there are some more
    miracles….actually miracles


    • Posted by MPB on March 20, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      Dear Ramesh Vittal,

      Will you please pray for me and my family. I am going through some unbearable litigation in the US, partly due to my mistake. I believe that prayers from true devotees such as you to Guru Rayaru will get charges against me dismissed. Please pray for me and my family.

      Thank you!

      Blocks are hgone with out surgery???

    Hi Ramesh,
    That’s so true. Do share the miracles you have experienced with us as well; of course if you don’t mind.


  214. The people who had gathered there during the last sermon should have been the most blessed of all mankind. Hearing or reading about the Rayaru always creates a stir in me. I have experienced miracles myself


    • Posted by sudhir on January 11, 2013 at 9:58 am

      They should have stopped him doing this. Do you and all those who believe in this can you prove he went to brindavan? Stop believing in superstitions,supernatural powers ,fairytales magic etc. Live by truth,rationality,scientific evidence. we are in 21st century. Faith is belief without evidence. We will all lead our life with peace if we follow truth ,not faith which is without evidence. I know I have made all you angry. Watch and read Richard Dockins and Sam Harris


      • Posted by meeraghu on January 11, 2013 at 10:45 am

        I don’t even think I need to respond to your ideas. Don’t come to my blog and write these nasty comments.When you knew you would anger me and many what was the reason behind leaving a comment. This blog is for like minded people, so you are not welcome here.

        Excuse me Mr…. How dare you say such things here… You pls mind ur own business and stop posting ur ideas here man! Get lost!

        Mr…As said , you can better post where you have your own like minded guys are. This blog is for believers and dont hurt our sentiments or beliefs. May our guru give you better brain.

      • Posted by Believer in Rayaru on February 18, 2014 at 1:03 pm


        My reply may be coming a year late but better now than never.

        1> They should have stopped him doing this.

        Since you visited this blog, you have heard about Rayaru and probably from your loved ones. If your loved ones could not stop you from turning into who you are today, you think people of those times could even think of stopping him from entering the brindavan let alone stopping him, such a saint of great ability?

        2> Stop believing in superstitions,supernatural powers ,fairytales magic etc. Live by truth,rationality,scientific evidence. we are in 21st century.

        Can you tell me what you mean by truth? Truth in one case may not be the truth in other case. Truth always comes from what is said in our scriptures which dictate right living.

        21st century is another period in time.There will be many more centuries to come. That does not mean anything, it does not make what happened in history false.

        Are you kidding me by saying scientific evidence? Science is the last thing I would want to believe.The science is bound by what we know at this instant in time which can become completely false if a negation is found. Science has never invented anything. It has only found things that were not known/ found earlier. Things always existed.

        3> Coming to Dawkins (NOT Dockins), I would be happy if he gave answers to how the whole universe was created , how so many galaxies came in to exsitence etc than negating what is known. I need an answer from him on why he came to earth , why is he going to die, what unfortunate events led him to be an athiest and why those things happened to him. I dont care if he is from Oxford or HArvard, they need to first answer the basic questions the mankind has ever had. In my view, I pity his soul.He is doomed in ignorance. God alone can save him.

      • Hi Sudhir,

        Want to convey 2 things here:

        1. What is beyond your perception (or Modern Science’s perception) looks like either a superstition or a miracle to you. So expand your horizon of thinking and seek the right Knowledge. The way God/Truth/Superconcious operates is way beyond our wildest imagination. Look at your own body and how complex it is. It is infact so fragile, yet so robust. Shouldn’t we really awe at it and the Creator’s brilliance?

        2. Won’t be surprised if our Attyanta Karuna Mayi Rayaru aids you at the time of your need (just remember Him once, and He’ll be there for you) and surprises you, which makes you question your own narrow notion of “rationality” 😀

        May His blessings overwhelm you 🙂 🙂
        Regards 🙂 🙂

        When you have faith on those Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, we will have faith on our Sri Guru Raghavendra swami.It may 21st century or 210th century our culture and heritage are our’s always.
        Some things humans cant prove just have faith and go ahead!
        Sri Raghavendra Gurubhyo Namaha!

      I have a strong belief on Lord Raghavendra. More than God, he is my father. There were days when i use to wonder how i am going to handle life without my parents. But God gave me the strength to handle my dad’s death. Surprise factor is my dad’s death was on Thursday Ekadasi early morning brahma muhartham, auspicious day and time for Rayuru. I felt my dad had gone to god’s feet. Above all, the day of my dad’s death Jun 4th hot summer day, it rained for an hour like a blessing for my famly.. My happiest moment also happened on a thursday- My daughters birth.. He knows what to give and when to give, but he will never put you down.. Tears rolling down my eyes..

        Wonderful post Sowmiya, I feel very blessed to have come across your article to read our Guruji’s last speech.

        @Sudhir : A day will come when you will realize the greatness of our dear Raghavendra Swamy and that day is not very far away. And he will make it happen not by harming you or anyone/anything close to you, but with his sheer grace and mercy, and mark my words, you will also become an ardent devotee of our Guruji soon and therein lies our Guruji’s greatness.

      • Posted by meeraghu on August 20, 2015 at 7:58 am

        Thanks for the comments. BTW, who is Sowmiya?

  215. Posted by meeraghu on September 4, 2008 at 8:53 am

    I know, Soumya. I felt like I was standing there when Rayaru was giving his speech. Every time I read this, tears start rolling down my eyes.


    • I was searching for some bhajans and came across this blog, the speech lines given here is excellent. Got an opportunity to know what was the lines of speech, many thanks for posting this and putting lights.


    • i read this post multiple times whenever i read this i feel that rayaru himself is instructing me to follow the right path.. it revitalize the way i want my life to be.. fortunately rayaru told that he will be present in his brindavana and scripture.. now my goal is to read all the scripture of rayaru by any means (As i dont know sankskrith or kanada) probable should publish pdf of all rayaru scripture in tamil and english so that tamil/hindi population is getting benefited from the translation, i think many people had translated in kannada his works already, now this will be my humble task for humanity from my side, if any already pdf available will collate them and publish, jai sri raghavendar, om shri raghavendraya namaha,

      Meera Madam, i kindly request you give us the letter by letter meaning of raghavendra given Gopala dasaru that would be great,

      Kudos and Hats of to this blog by Madam Meera. My namaskaras and pranams for your service, You will have abundance of grace of lord shri raghavendra swami.


  216. Posted by soumya on September 2, 2008 at 10:17 am


    This post is really wonderful.I have heard that rayaru gave a speech before entering brindavana but never got an opportunity to know the content of his speech.I really appreciate for posting this on the net.
