Sri Raghavendra Swamigala Aaradhane – Washington DC

The Madhva Sangha of Washington DC celebrated Rayara Aaradhane at Durga Temple on the 8th of August 2009. Kudos to the Madhva Sangha, everyone in the DC area now have the opportunity to do Seva to Raghavendra Swamigalu. Everyone from my family attended the function.

Attached below are a few pictures taken while doing the pooje and also Maha mangalaruthi.

      Here is the Sri Guru Raghavendra Aarati song. (hope you are looking for this one!)

      ಮ೦ಗಳ ಗುರುರಾಘವೇ೦ದ್ರಗೆ
      ಜಯ ಮ೦ಗಳ ಸುಜನಾ೦ಬುಧಿಚ೦ದ್ರಗೆ

      ಶ್ರೀ ಸುಧೀ೦ದ್ರಕುಮಾರಗೆ ಮ೦ಗಳ
      ಭೂಸುರಾನ್ವಿತನಿಲಯಗೆ ಮ೦ಗಳ
      ದೈಶಿಕ ಕುಲವನಜಾಕ೯ಗೆ ಮ೦ಗಳ
      ಭಾಸುರ ಕೀರ್ತಿಯ ಪಡೆದವಗೆ

      ವೄ೦ದಾವನದೊಳಗೆ ಸುರದ್ರುಮ
      ಆನ೦ದದಿ ರಾಜಿಸುವಗೆ ಮ೦ಗಳ
      ಅ೦ಧ ಪ೦ಗು ಮೂಕ ಬಧಿರರೀಪ್ಸಿತ
      ಸ೦ದೋಹ ಸಲಿಸುವ ಗುರುವಯ೯ಗೆ

      ಭೂತ ಪ್ರೇತಾಳ ವಿಪಿನಭಯ
      ವೀತಿಹೋತ್ರಗೆ ಶುಭಮ೦ಗಳ
      ದಾತಜನಕ ಜಗನ್ನಾಥವಿಟ್ಠಲನ
      ದೂತರ ಸಲಹುವ ದಾತನಿಗೆ

    Hello Meera,

    I was not aware that there is a Madhva Sangha in DC. Thanks for sharing the information about Rayara Aaradhane at Durga Temple. A must attend event from now on…Just returning back from India and catching up…..also catching up with your blogs, I sure missed it. A very happy gokulaashtami to you and your family.

    Hi Seema, Welcome back. You sure must have enjoyed your trip to India. Of course, you were there in India for the Aaradhane celebrations. So lucky.
    I was in Bangalore in 2006 during Rayara Aaradhane. I went crazy going to all rayara mattas and seeing the bhakthi among people. Just amazing to watch. of course, I did rayara seva with my mother also, which I enjoy a lot.


  7. My son lives in DC and am sure he will be happy to connect with the Madhva Sangha. Please send me the contact details so that I can pass it on to him.
