Enu Punyava Maadi – ಏನು ಪುಣ್ಯವ ಮಾಡಿ

My Sister sang this song during our virtual Zoom Satsangha on Saturday. Since than I have been humming this every minute. An amazing song on Lord Krishna. It is written by Shree Karigiri Dasaru.

The YouTube video has lyrics in both English and Kannada. I am trying to learn song as well.

ಏನು ಪುಣ್ಯವ ಮಾಡಿ ನಾನಿಂದು ನಿನ್ನ ಕಂಡೆ ದೀನವತ್ಸಲ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಕೃಷ್ಣ |
ಜ್ಯಾನಗಮ್ಯನೇ ನಿನ್ನ ಕಾಣಲು ಮನದಲ್ಲಿ ಮುನಿವರರು ನಿತ್ಯ ಧ್ಯಾನ ಮಾಡುವರಯ್ಯ ||
ಶ್ರುತಿ-ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರಗಳನೋದಿ ಮಥನವ ಮಾಡುವೆ ಮತಿ ಸಾಧನದಿಂದ ನಿನ್ನರಸುವರೋ |
ಪತಿತ ಪಾವನ ನಿನ್ನ ಕರುಣಾ ಒಂದಿಲ್ಲದಿರೆ ಇತರ ಸಾಧನವೆಲ್ಲ ಗತಿದೊರದೊ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ || ೧ ||
ಏನೊಂದು ಸಾಧನ ಅರಿಯದ ನನಗೀಗ ನೀನಾಗಿ ದಯಮಾಡಿ ಮೈದೋರಿದೆ |
ಏನು ಧನ್ಯನೊ ನಾನು ಆನಂದಕ್ಕೇನೆಗಾಣಿ ದಾನವಾಂತಕ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಕರಿಗಿರೀಶನೇ ಕೃಷ್ಣ || ೨ ||

Adhika Ashweeja Masa – September 18th- October 16th 2020

Sharvari name Samvatsara  Adhika Ashweeja Masa , Dakshinayana, Sharath Ruthu starts September 18th- October 16th 2020.

P.S: It is during this Adhika Masa that special offerings are given to deserved people like Brahamana, married ladies. As per the panchanga, you should give 33 fruits, gold coins, silver coins or any special dish. Anything worth offering should be given.

It is also said that if you can’t prepare any dish, than offer all the ingredients required to prepare 33 numbers of the dish. For e.g: if you want to prepare Kadabu, you should prepare 33 of them, offer it as Naivedya to the Lord, and than give this to a Brahmana, or a priest or a married lady. If you are unable to prepare the same, than offer ingredients like sugar, ghee, rava, flour, cardamom for preparing the same.
