Sahasra Chandra Darshana – Sri B.G.Subbarao

I had promised all of you that I will post the pictures of the Sahasra Chandra Darshana performed for my Father Sri B.G.Subbarao on October 20th 2013 at Sree Vyasarayara Mutta, Basavanagudi, Bangalore. This function is performed when one is 80 years old. Sahasra is 1000, so it is a way of saying thanks to the Lord for having blessed us to see 1000 Full Moon over the past 80 years. It is a rare function since it is not common for both Husband and wife to be alive.

We enjoyed this function, and my Father was very happy. We are blessed to have done this function the way he wanted. May Lord the Almighty and our beloved Rayaru shower his choicest blessings on our Father.

Enjoy the pictures. We had a professional who took pictures and video. These pictures are from the album we have. Click on the pictures to see a bigger version. I have been sensitive and posted the pictures only of my Father, Mother, Grandmother and the Priest. Didn’t want to post pictures of anyone else online and offend them.

This song is written by Sree Purandara Dasaru, and is in Kalyani Raaga   and Adi tala. The lyrics were provided to me by my Aunt, Ms. Lalitha. She said my great great grandfather used to ask her to sing this song during Tulasi Habba. Thanks Aunty for this wonderful song. And thanks Bhavana for the updated lyrics.

Attached below are the updated lyrics in Kannada and English provided by Ms.Bhavana Damle.

ಒಲ್ಲನೋ ಹರಿ ಕೊಳ್ಳನೋ
ಎಲ್ಲ ಸಾಧನವಿದ್ದು ತುಳಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜೆ ||ಪ.||

ಸಿಂಧು ಶತಕೋಟಿ ಗಂಗೋದಕವಿದ್ದು
ಗಂಧವು ಪರಿಮಳ ವಸ್ತ್ರವಿದ್ದು
ಚಂದುಳ್ಳ ಆಭರಣ ಧೂಪದೀಪಗಳಿದ್ದು
ಬೃಂದಾವನ ಶ್ರೀ ತುಳಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜೆ ||೧||

ದಧಿ ಕ್ಷೀರ ಮೊದಲಾದ ಅಭಿಷೇಕಗಳಿದ್ದು
ಮಧುಪರ್ಕ ಪಂಚೋಪಚಾರವಿದ್ದು
ಮುದದಿಂದ ಮುದ್ದು ಶ್ರೀ ಕೃಷ್ಣನ ಪೂಜೆಗೆ
ಸದಮಲಳಾದ ಶ್ರೀ ತುಳಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜೆ ||೨||

ಮಂತ್ರ ಮಹಾಮಂತ್ರ ಪುರುಷಸೂಕ್ತಗಳಿದ್ದು
ತಂತು ತಪ್ಪದೆ ತಂತ್ರ ಸಾರವಿದ್ದು
ಸಂತತ ನಿಜಸಂಪೂರ್ಣನ ಪೂಜೆಗೆ
ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಪ್ರಿಯಳಾದ ತುಳಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜೆ ||೩||

ಕಮಲ ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಜಾಜಿ ಸಂಪಿಗೆ ಕೇದಿಗೆ
ವಿಮಲ ಘಂಟೆ ಪಂಚವಾದ್ಯಗಳಿದ್ದು
ಅಮಲ ಪಂಚಭಕ್ಷ್ಯ ಪರಮಾನ್ನಗಳಿದ್ದು
ಕಮಲನಾಭನು ಶ್ರೀ ತುಳಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜೆ ||೪||

ಪೂಜೆಯ ಮಾಡದೆ ತುಳಸಿ ಮಂಜರಿಯಿಂದ
ಮೂಜಗದೊಡೆಯ ಮುರಾರಿಯನು
ರಾಜಾಧಿರಾಜನೆಂಬ ಮಂತ್ರವೃಷ್ಟಿಗಳಿಂದ
ಪೂಜಿಸಿದರೂ ಒಲ್ಲ ಪುರಂದರವಿಠಲನು ||೫||
