Ranga Baro Panduranga baro Lyrics

Attached below is the lyrics for the song Ranga Baro Panduranga Baro by Sri Purandara Dasaru. The lyrics are in Kannada and English as well.

Varava Kode Thayi

Very popular song on Goddess Lakshmi. This is sung on Fridays, Shravana Masa Lakshmi pooje, Gauri Pooje and so on.. I have composed my own tune and also compiled lyrics from comments and my book and converted to Kannada and English.

ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ ತಾಯಿ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ ತಾಯಿ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ

ಶರಧಿ ಸಂಪನ್ನೆ ಕೇಳಿ ಸೆರಗೊಡ್ಡಿ ಬೇಡುವಂಥಾ || pa ||

ಬಾಗಿಲು ತೋರಣ ಕಟ್ಟಿ ಮದುವೆ ಮುಂಜಿ ನಾಮಕರಣ | ಅನುಗಾಲ ಇರುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ || 1 ||

ಮಾಡಿಯ ಮನೆಯೊಳಗೇ ಜೋಡು ತೊಟ್ಟಿಲ ಕಟ್ಟಿ ಜೋಗುಳ ಹಾಡುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ  || 2 ||

ಅಷ್ಟೈಶ್ವರ್ಯ ಸೌಭಾಗ್ಯ ಅನುಗಾಲ ಇರುವಂಥ  ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ ತಾಯೆ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ || 3 ||

ಕಟ್ಟಿದ ಮಾಂಗಲ್ಯ ಕರಿಯ ಮಣಿಸರ ಸ್ಥಿರವಾಗೇ ಇರುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ || 4 ||

ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಮಕ್ಕಳ ಹಡೆದು  ಹೊನ್ನು ಸೆರಗಿಲಿ ಕಟ್ಟಿ | ಕನ್ಯಾದಾನ ಮಾಡುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ  || 5 ||

ಗಂಡು ಮಕ್ಕಳ ಹಡೆದು ಕುಲವನ್ನುದ್ಧರಿಸುವ | ಬಿಂದುಲಿ ಇಡುವಂಥ ಮಗನ ಕೊಡೆ || 6 ||

ಶ್ಯಾಲ್ಲನ ಸುಘೃತ  ಪಂಚ ಭಕ್ಷ್ಯ  ಪರಮಾನ್ನ ನೈವೇದ್ಯ ಇಡುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ || 7 ||

ಅನ್ನ ದಾನ ವಸ್ತ್ರ ದಾನ ಗೃಹ ದಾನ ಭೂ ದಾನ | ಗೋದಾನ ಕೊಡುವಂಥ ವರವ ಕೊಡೆ || 8 ||

ರಂಗ ನಾಯಕಿ ನಿನ್ನ ಮುಡಿಯ ಮೇಲಿರುವಂಥ| ಪ್ರಸನ್ನವೆಂಕಟನಾರಸಿ ಹೂವ ಕೊಡೆ ಐದು ಹೂವ ಕೊಡೆ || 9 ||

Varava koḍe tāyi varava koḍe tāyi varava koḍe

śaradhi sampanne kēḷi seragoḍḍi bēḍuvanthā || pa ||

bāgilu tōraṇa kaṭṭi maduve mun̄ji nāmakaraṇa | anugāla iruvantha varava koḍe || 1 ||

māḍiya maneyoḷagē jōḍu toṭṭila kaṭṭi jōguḷa hāḍuvantha varava koḍe  || 2 ||

aṣṭaiśvarya saubhāgya anugāla iruvantha  varava koḍe tāye varava koḍe || 3 ||

kaṭṭida māṅgalya kariya maṇisara sthiravāgē iruvantha varava koḍe || 4 ||

heṇṇu makkaḷa haḍedu  honnu seragili kaṭṭi | kan’yādāna māḍuvantha varava koḍe  || 5 ||

gaṇḍu makkaḷa haḍedu kulavannud’dharisuva | binduli iḍuvantha magana koḍe || 6 ||

śyāllana sughr̥ta  pan̄ca bhakṣya  paramānna naivēdya iḍuvantha varava koḍe || 7 ||

anna dāna vastra dāna gr̥ha dāna bhū dāna | gōdāna koḍuvantha varava koḍe || 8 ||

raṅga nāyaki ninna muḍiya mēliruvantha| prasannaveṅkaṭanārasi hūva koḍe aidu hūva koḍe || 9 ||

P.S: This song was in my draft for several months, almost from Shravana Masa last year. The digital camera we had has broken, we need to send it for repair( just after all the pictures were taken for the Gruhapravesha function). That’s why there are no posts on any food items.

Rekha, who visits this site regularly says that her Mother-in-law used to sing these additional 3 stanzas of this song. Thanks Rekha for sharing the same.

Maadiya maneyolage jodu tottila katti jogula haaduvantha vaarava kode.
Astaiswarya soubhagya needutale,varava kodale taaye varava kode.
Kattida maangalya kariya manisara stiravaage iruvantha varava kode.

2009-2010 Shri Uttaradi Math Panchanga

I just received by mail the 2009-2010 Shri Uttaradi Math Panchanga sent by my Father. My Father is very prompt in sending all these to us here. I have been receiving the calendar every year since 1997, the year we left to Dubai from India. In spite of his age( 75), my Father has never missed sending the calendar or reminding me of any important event. Thanks Dad, I am blessed.

He also had sent a small letter, part of which goes like this.

According to Madhwa philosophy Sri Hari is supreme. All other gods & goddesses are His parivara. He is everywhere and in everything. He is the kala pravarthaka & kala Niyamaka. When such is the case, it is customary to invoke his blessings on the eve of the New Year. Let the New “Samvatsara” bring you all Health, Wealth & Happiness and all your desires be fulfilled. May Sri Hari be with you all, all the time.

I would like to follow my Fathers foot steps, and keep you all posted from now onwards on important events in our religion on a monthly basis. There will be a new post at the beginning of every month with details of all the festivals and important functions.

P.S: If you haven’t purchased one, do ask any of your relatives to post the same. The Calendar costs Rs 20/-, but the postage to US was Rs 190/-.

Here is the link for uttaradi Muth daily Panchanga online. Link  provided by Mr.Nandan.

If you know Sanskrit, than the entire panchanga is available online as a PDF. You can download and print as well.
