ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ಕಥಾಮೃತ ಸಾರ – Sri Hari Kathamruta Sara

During my last visit to India in September-October 2009, my Aunt Ms. Jayu Shamarao presented me a book on “Hari Kathamruta Sara” by Sri Jaganatha Dasaru.  This was the best gift I had received in all these years. Thanks so much Jayu Aunty.

As soon as I received this book, I had decided to work on putting this highly revered text online in Kannada and English(Baraha) to help many in the dvaita community.

I have a seperate page called “ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ಕಥಾಮೃತ ಸಾರ – Sri Hari Kathamruta Sara” which will be updated as and when I get time. The main page here will also be updated to inform the readers that a new Stanza or Sandhi has been added.

Sri Jagannatha Dasaru in this composition has explained the gradation among the Gods. And with one supreme God; Lord Vishu.  The various stanzas explain this concept, first being lord Vishnu, followed by Lakshmi, than Brahma and Vayu, and later comes Garuda, Shesha and so on..

This composition provides a very basic and better understanding of the Gradation of Gods, and is done in very simple explanations.

For the first Stanza, the one which must be chanted at the beginning of each and every Sandhi,  please check the “ಶ್ರೀ ಹರಿ ಕಥಾಮೃತ ಸಾರ – Sri Hari Kathamruta Sara” page.

As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.

P.S: This whole composition is in Kannada, so please no translation in any other language other than English.

Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu – A Milestone 700,000 Visitors

Yes, you saw it right. This blog has now crossed 700,000 visitors.  I am just amazed seeing how this simple blog, in which I wanted to save my recipes and lyrics for my Daughter for later use, became so popular and a huge passion for me.

If I don’t write for a few days, I feel lost. If someone asks for a lyrics, I go out of my way to find the same. If I prepare something special at my home or any place I visit, I immediately look for a camera to click images. If I hear a song, I run to get my Mac to record the same. Sounds crazy right? Yes, this blog has really made me crazy in many ways which I hadn’t imagined at all.

It is also the comments which I receive which pushes me even more to write regularly. There are many many visitors who have provided recipes, lyrics, links and many more useful information, without which this blog wouldn’t have been possible at all. With this blog, I was able to connect to so many Friends who live in many countries from India to Dubai to USA. Everywhere I go, I meet at least a few people who are frequent visitors of my blog.

Thanks is a very small word to say to all those who visit this blog.

There are 700,000 visitors, but not 700,000 comments. It shows that there are many silent spectators as well.  So, thanks to you as well.



Sri Rama Bhajane – Sri Nama Ramayana Lyrics

Sri Nama Ramayana or Sri Rama Bhajane has been provided here in both Kannada and Baraha Script English.  I wanted to post this from many months now, just didn’t have enough time at all. It has taken several hours to translate this from the book I had to Baraha.

If you need this in any other language other than Kannada, copy the script provided in Baraha in the pdf and translate to any language of your choice.

Hope this helps for the upcoming Sri Rama Navami festival. May Lord Rama bless us all.

There is a video on Youtube for the short version. Listen to learn the tune.

P.S: If you need the word version to use it within Baraha, leave a comment here and I will send it to your email ID. Valid email ID please.

I also recorded the song, and posted the same on youtube. Attached below is the link for the same as well.
