The Raghavendra Prarthana is composed by Sri Guru Jagannatha Dasaru of Kosigi.

Guru Jaganntha Dasaru has composed several songs on Raghavendra Swamy.  Apart from Raghavendra Vijaya, he is the author of  Raghavendra Vybhava, Raghavendra Mahatme, Raghavendra Karavalamba Stotra, Raghavendra Prarthana, Raghavendra Sahasra Namavali, Raghavendra Aapaadee Mauli Sotra, Raghavendra Sarva Karma Samarpana Strotra, Raghavendra Astakam and Raghavendra Ashawa Dhati Stotra.

The Raghavendra Prarthana is a beautiful composition on Rayaru and it is a prayer to the Seer of Mantralaya.

Here goes the Kannada and English lyrics.

    It is good idea to post songs about our Guru Shri Raghavenda but my suggestion is if you have any songs on our guru please post as an audio it is easy to understand and at the same we can recite same after same . It is quite difficult task but trust me if you minds it you can do it.

    Thanks

    KG Venkatesh
