Raghavendra Guru Rayara sevisiro
soukyadi jivisiro ||pa||

tungatheeradi raghuramana poojisiro
narasinghana bhajakaro ||ap||

sree sudheendra kara saroja sanjata jagadolage punitA
dasharatiya dasatvava ta vahisi
durmatigala jayisi
ee sameera mata samstApakarAgi nindakaranu neegi
busurarige samsevya sadacharanee
kangolisuva karuni ||1||

kundada vara mantralayadalliruva
karadallige baruva brindavanagata mrittike jalapAna
mukutige sopAna
sandarushanamAtradali mahatApa badidoisalApa

srida vithalana sannidana pAtra
samstutisalu mAtra moda padisutiha tanihaparadalli

mediniyolaginnarasalu nA kane pusiyallaane
pAdasmaraneya madadavane papi
na peluve stapi ||3||

      If you can point the mistakes, that would be useful to everyone. Just saying there are mistakes is not going to help.

    Respected Gayathri mam,
    I am Ragavendran.. I feel extremely sorry for my comment given before 4 days.. I should have not wrote such comments without knowing anything about you..

    Please forgive me for this mistake..

    Hi Gayathri,
    I am compiling all the information regarding Ekadashi for you. I am going to post the same. I am so glad you asked about as well. I myself have received several do’s and dont’s based. Not to worry.

    Hi meera,
    I posted a comment on ur blog about ekadashi & when I did it my intentions were purely based on the quest for proper information & knowledge, I was just looking 2 hear from somebody who obviously knows more about it than I do.In response i saw a comment 4m another visitor who seems 2 have made judgements about my intentions without even having a clue of who I am..All I can say is he is prejudiced & ASSUMES a lot. To top it all,he generalizes the situation.Nevertheless thanks to u for telling me that u would post the info. “Moodamathi” definetely appreciates it.. 🙂 [sorry I cud not help it]

    Hi Gaythri,
    Sure. I will post the lyrics and also the do’s and dont’s for Ekadashi.

    Respected mam/madam,
    I am Ragavendran.. I dont know the procedure to follow on Ekadashi..
    But I know that one of the powerful procedure is to follow with true bhakti wholeheartedly. Our beloved.Rayaru will not be happy if the faith is blind as he himself spoken these words on the day of his brindavana pravesha.. Of course I dont know about your bhakti.. I am telling this as my general opinion.. we pray to god only to fulfil our desires.. But we must not..

    As guru stotra says, We must pray to god for himself.. i.e Without Expecting anything from him.. What does car, Money or house or any other royal life is going to do for us? These are all temporary.. We are not going to take all these with us when our life ends..
    Once again i am not just pointing you, This is my advice for all of us including myself..
    if any of these words hurts you, Sorry for it..
    But These words are 200% a true fact..
