Varava Kode Thayi

Very popular song on Goddess Lakshmi. This is sung on Fridays, Shravana Masa Lakshmi pooje, Gauri Pooje and so on.. I am not sure about the tune, I will post it on youtube when I find the right one. I will also post the lyrics in English soon as well.

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.

    Hi, I sing this song in all gowri & Lakshmi poojas. So I am sending you the song as I sing in English:

    Varava kode tayi varava kode
    Siriyu sampatteradu sthiravaagi iruvantha ||varava kode ||

    Balegondarishina holeva karimani
    anugaala iruvantha varava kode
    anugaala brahmana karedu mrushthannava
    tilineeru koduvantha varava kodamma thaayi varava kode||1||

    Maaligi maneyolu jodu tottilu katti
    jogula paaduvantha varava kode
    bagilige torana maduve munji namakarana
    yaavagaliruvantha varava kodamma taayi varava kode ||2||

    Hennu makkalan hadedu honna seragile katti
    kanyadana maduvantha varava kode
    kanyadana annadana godana bhoodana

    Gandu makkalan hadedu bindige honna tumbi
    andanaveruvantha varava kode
    banda brahmanariganandadi bhojana
    undundu danivantha varava kodamma taayi varava kode ||4||

    Halu haraviyagi keeladi sharanembe
    yavagaliruvantha varava kode
    shalyanna sughruta panchabhakshya paramanna
    naivedyakkiduvantha varava kodamma taayi varava kode ||5||

    Siriyu sampatteradu sthiravagi iruvantha varava kode taayi varava kode||

      Hello Meera avre, I have just looked at this site. I feel blessed. Thank you. However, we can give you huge compilation of songs that my mother in law sings. She sings all these and much more. How do I send audios to you? Which format? Feel free to email me directly if you wish , because I think people will benefit with the bhajanes that Amma sings. Thanks.

        I have sent an email. Share with me all the audio, if you can post it to youtube, that is also great.
