Shri Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhane 2020

  • August 4th – Tuesday– Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane

  • August 5th – Wednesday – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Madya Aaradhane

  • August 6th – Thursday– Sree Raghavendra Swamy Uttara Aaradhane

P.S: Let us all celebrate at our own homes and pray that Corona Virus is gone as early as possible. And everyone infected gets cured without any major problems. 

And also watch Mantralaya celebrations online. 



Shri Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhane  is celebrated all across India, and many other countries in Rayara Matta’s and also many households. My parents do Rayara Seva every year during Aaradhane, and I being a strong devotee  of Rayaru do it myself; no matter where I am in the world. I did it when I was in India, Dubai and continue doing here as well in the USA. So, if you are a devotee, than try doing as much or as little as possible to this great Guru of ours and get his blessings.

If you need to know how to do Seva, here is a link from the Mantralaya web site about who and how the seva should be performed. Read the link here:

In paragraph 10, it clearly states other ways of offering seva to Rayarau as such:

10.Are there other ways of performing Seva to Rayaru?

Yes. As stated before, if one is sincere and devoted to Hari, Vayu and Rayaru, there are many ways of performing Seva to Rayaru. The following section lists some of the main ones:

a) Sitting in one place and reciting Sri Raghavendra stotra 108 times.

b) Hejje namaskara (going around the Brindavana advancing one foot at a time and performing namaskara for each stride)

c) Urulu Seva – rolling on the body and going around the brindavana. This is forbidden for women.

d) Reciting Sri Raghavendra stotra 108 times while performing abhisheka for Rayara Brindavana with cow’s milk.

e) Going through religious works composed by great gyaanis; some of the popular ones are Sudha, Parimala, Sri Madhva Vijaya,Sri Raghavendra Vijaya etc.

In all of the above cases, the main ingredient is sincerity, pure heart and intense devotion.

I have added several lyrics on Shri Raghavendra Swamy in this blog, you can look for those at the lyrics page, or click on the Shri Raghavendra Swamy categories section and you will be listed with several songs. There are several songs as well on the audio on youtube page.

A new page is also created with all the lyrics for our beloved Rayaru.
