Pavamana Jagadaprana Lyrics

This song sung by Pt. Bhimsen Joshi is one of my all time favorites. However, I wasn’t able to find the song on the web. If you have a link, do share it. So, here comes the lyrics for this great song. As always in Kannada, and Braha Script in English.

    once again thanks a lot for sharing such a great song



  37. Posted by Shubha Sathish on April 15, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    Hi Meera,
    You have a lot of devotional songs available In and music indiaonline.I found this song in
    Just one beautiful song and many people have searched for it.We not only get to find this particular song but many others which we have lost track of.
    I remember the day when my granny taught me Ikko node Ranganathana Chikka padava.She took only 5 mins of 2-3 days to teach me ,for the Rayara Aradhana at 4th T block mutt.Eventually I got the first prize for it.I don’t remember what prize I got,but I cherish the prize which was my granny.
    More than anything,grandparents are the greatest(apart from parents) and a treasure house.Unfortunately,we have not only lost those people but a great deal of knowledge on various aspects of life.I certainly miss them a lot.
    Keep us on our toes to find good people and things in this world.

  42. Posted by manoj on December 20, 2009 at 10:29 am

    Thanks for all the efforts. I cant read Kannada but understands and speak well, so English version lyrics was very great help for me.

    Thanks again,



  43. Hi Ma’m,

    Thanks a ton for the lyrics. If it is not too much of an ask, can we get the meaning of the lyrics?

    For some youngsters like us who haven’t studied Sanskrit or aren’t aware of the different styles of Kannada, understanding the verses become difficult, though I/we know the lyrics by-heart. At times, I use my Kannada and Hindi knowledge and try to relate them and understand. Chances of interpretation going wrong also exists!

    I haven’t explored the blog much as of yet, but will surely do it. Also got the lyrics of ‘IshTu dina ee Vaikunta, eshTu dooravu ennutalidde…..”. Hopefully there will be more lyrics of the devotional songs and Dasara PadagaLu as well. Afterall, “Taanalla tannadalla, aase taravalla munde baahodalla….. Daasanaagu… Visheshanaagu…” Howdallave?

    Dear Meera,

    Words cannot thank you enough for the songs that you have posted. I actually was looking for Pahi Pahi Raghavendra and found it on YouTube. Thanks to you! God bless you. I am in the US and listening to these devotional songs makes me feel closer to home and closer to God.


    Lakshmi, thanks so much for your kind words. I am glad the songs posted could make you feel closer to home and to God.

    Hi Seema,
    Thanks so much for your nice comments. I started this blog for my daughter who has been traveling around the world with us and never learnt Kannada. I hope one day when she grows up, she will be able to read all these and appreciate my efforts.

    If this blog is helping many others who don’t know Kannada, I am really happy about the same as well.


    • Posted by Anand on June 7, 2012 at 5:43 pm

      Bien Bien .. Love this version. We are from south of Allepey, Kerala. But didn’t know it was Kannada. Many of our neighbors love hearing this song @ the local temple & sing it. However, neighbors that have sung it are mainly from Andhra. This tune really jived with me Has anyone heard the Bhimsen Joshi version?


  64. Posted by Seema on September 16, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    Hello Meera,

    What can say other then a Big Thanks and also urge you to continue the good work. Your site is so informative with all the Madhwa sampradaya and it’s simply wonderful. Your site is like a cheat sheet for me of what ever I learnt from mom or what my mom/mother-in-laws tell me now. Today I had to send this Thank You note as I have been waiting for you to post the lyrics of ‘Pavamana Jagada Prana’, as it happens to be my favorite song too. Unfortunately I cannot read kannada although ‘am a kannadiga:(. Nice of you to post the lyrics in English as well.

    Thanks once again!

    – Seema
