Ugadi – Manmatha Nama Samvatsara(ಮನ್ಮಥ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ) – March 20/21 2015

The new year for all Hindus starts from March 20th & 21st 2015. This year it is ManmathaNama Samvatsara(ಮನ್ಮಥ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ). Please check your local calendars for exact date.

Panchangas for Uttaradi Math and Raghavendra Mutta is available online and posted in this blog as well.

During Ugadi, the leaves of neem also called Bevu ಬೇವು is mixed with jaggery called Bella ಬೆಲ್ಲ; and is distributed on the occasion. Neem, which is extremely bitter in taste( Kahi) , and jaggery which is sweet and delicious, signify the two different aspects of human life – joy and sorrow.

Authentic Madhwa Recipes page posted on the right hand side has several recipes you can prepare:

P.S: As always no food is prepared with onion or garlic.
You can find some amazingly good greetings in Kannada, at the following link

And here is the lyrics for the famous song by Shri Bendre, which we used to hear on major radio channels, Yuga Yugadi Kaledaru:

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide

honge hUva tongalalli bhrungada sangIta kEli matte kELabarutide
bEvina kahi bALinalli hUvina nasugampu sUsi jIvakaLeya tarutide

varushakondu hosatu janma harushakondu hosatu neleyu akhila jIvajAtake
onde ondu janmadali onde bAlya onde haraya namagadashTE EtakO

niddegomme nitya maraNa edda sala navIna janana namage Eke

bAradOelE sanatkumAradEva elE sAhasi chiranjIva ninage lIle sEradO

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide nammanashTe maretide

You can of course listen to a preview of this song sung by S.Janaki at the following links here:

    Hi Meera avre,
    What is “Jaya Nama samvatsara”? I tried googling but all I could get is that it is the name of this year (?). I could not get much info. Can you share info/details about what it is and how do the names originate, pehaps, in your next blog article for newbies like me? It will be interesting to read. Thanks!
