Jayamangalam song on Goddess Lakshmi

Another amazing lyrics from the book. Composed by Shree Purandara Dasaru. I had never heard this song ever. Beautiful it is and once again added my own tune. Like my Father says, for God’s Bhajane Raga Tala isn’t key, bhakthi is important.

Happy Friday and Happy Shravana Masa to All.

I have a screenshot of the lyrics in the video, will post it soon.

Nadedu Baramma Manege Lyrics and Audio

During this visit to Kamadhenu Kshetra, and in their book store I found an amazing book on Goddess Lakshmi Devi and it has exactly 108 songs composed by Dasaru. I am trying to learn as many as possible and post it here in my blog especially for Shravana Masa Friday’s pooja.

Here is the link for Kamadhenu Kshetra in Bangalor.

I also learnt another trick to scan and convert lyrics. I used to spend hours and hours during weekends typing lyrics and converting them. With this new technique, lot of time saved. One benefit of being an Engineer right? No matter what, that mindset helps.

Varava Kode Thayi Audio

I had posted this song on March 28th 2009. I never got to record the tune. Yesterday finally found time in the night to practice 2 to 3 times, and get a tune and also compile the lyrics from my own book, and comments. Hopefully useful for Shravana Masa Friday’s for us all.

Lyrics like I said I have updated in the original post.

Bhimana Amavase or Gandana pooje – July 28th 2022

Bhimana Amavase or Gandana pooje, is an important pooje performed by unmarried women and newly married women for 9 years after their marriage. It is performed on the new moon day or amavase in the month of Aashada masa.

This year it is on July 28th 2022 Thursday in India and USA. Please check calendars for other countries.

This pooje is also called Bheemeshwarana pooje. This pooje is dedicated to God Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

Mud models of Shiva and Parvathi in the form of a cone with a flat base are made, kept in the sun to dry and decorated with white dots made out of limestone paste, or sometimes with akki hittu(rice flour) mixed with milk. A thread immersed in turmeric paste, a flower and sometimes turmeric root are tied around the model for Parvathi. After the pooje, usually either the girls Mom or Mother-in-Law ties this thread to the girls wrists.

Those who have brothers, later in the evening worship the hosthilu or threshold of their house. They call it “Bhandara vadiyodu“. The girls brother brakes the bhandara and gives money to his sister.

The story for Bhimana Amavase goes like this:

In a city there was a king called Vajrabahu. He had one and only son called Vijayashekara, who dies suddenly while still young. The king and queen decide to perform his marriage; even though he is dead. But, who would marry a corpse, right? No one comes forward to marry him. A Brahmin couple, named Madhava and his wife Sushila have five daughters and nine sons. They are extremely poor and they decide to marry one of their daughters in marriage to the dead prince; in return they would get lot of money and can use it to feed their family.

This girl is left with her dead husband and than she prays to God Shiva and Goddess Parvathi with great devotion. Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi ask her to perform this pooje; since she is in the forest and doesn’t have any money she uses clay or mud and performs the pooje. The dead prince comes back to life. The king, queen and everyone is now happy to see their son come back to life.

Now that you know why and how to do the pooje, tell the significance of this story to your daughter, perform the pooje, tie the thread across her wrist and bless her with all your heart.

Happy Gandana Pooje.

Here below is the step by step procedure to perform Diwasi Gowri pooje as per the book I have now:

1. Clean the place where you are going to perform the pooja, put an elaborate rangoli (ರಂಗವಲ್ಲಿ). Find links to various rangoli (ರಂಗವಲ್ಲಿ) here:

2. Place a wooden plank called Mane(ಮಣೆ).
3. On this Mane, place a silver plate and within the plate, keep the idols of Diwasi Gowri and Managal Gowri( if you are performing Managal Gowri).
4. Also keep 1 dry cocnout (Kobbari Battalu ಕೊಬ್ಬರಿ ಬಟ್ಟಲು) as it is called in Kannada, 10 betel nut (adike ಅಡಿಕೆ), 10 betel leaves (villedele ವಿಳೇದೆಲೆ), 10 rounds of thread ದಾರ.
5. Now, worship the gowri and offer her 10 Kucchida Kadabu (ಕುಚ್ಚಿದ ಕಡಬು).
6. Next, tie 10 knots on the thread immersed in turmeric paste, a flower and sometimes turmeric root. For married ladies, 10 knots and unmarried girls 5 knots, and 5 rounds of thread.
7. Put this on the Gowri idol.
8. Perform Aarthi to Gowri. Offer your prayers, and do namaskaras.
8. Once, you finish all the pooja, usually either the girls Mom or Mother-in-Law ties this thread to the girls wrists or can also put it around her neck.

Dasoham Tava Dasoham Lyrics

One more amazing song composed by Shree Jagannatha Dasaru on Lord Vittala. All these songs are sung as part of Harivana Seva to the Lord. My Darasu book also has this as part of the last chapter and has close to 20 songs.

Vithalayya Vithalayya Lyrics and Audio

Yet another amazing song composed by Shree Jagannatha Dasaru on Lord Vittala. This song truly brings tears especially after watching the movie on Shree Jagannatha Dasaru. The very first song he composed is this one in Pandarapur.

Pandarapuravembha Dhoda Nagara Video

Here in the United States, we have 2 Ekadashi’s tomorrow and day after. I was searching through my blog for songs on Lord Panduranga. Found this one posted December 13, 2013. How time flies. And it was contributed by Mr. Lakshman and Ms. Damle.

I heard this song around two weeks back and decided to make it easy to sing by altering the tune a little bit since I can’t sing at the high pitch. More posts, songs to come during the upcoming Shravana Masa.

So, the video and the link for the lyrics below.

And the lyrics in both Kannada and english below:

ಪಂಢರಾಪುರವೆಂಬ ದೊಡ್ಡ ನಗರ – Pandarapuravembha Dhoda Nagara Lyrics

Karkataka Sankramana – Dakshinayana

This year in the US, Dakshinayana starts from July 16th Saturday. In India, it is July 17th Sunday.

Below some additional details:

The term Uttarāyaṇa  is derived from two different Sanskrit words – “uttara” (North) and “ayana” (movement) –  northward movement of the Sun.

Dakshina means South and Aayana means travel or movement. The movement of Sun in the Southern direction is called as Dakṣiṇāyaṇa.

Uttarayana or Dakshinayana consists of six months each is the time taken by the Sun to travel from one house to the other during these periods.

Our Hindu calendar is  divided into two periods  of six months each.

Sun is the central point for both Uttarayana and Dakshinayana.

Legend also has it that Uttarayana represents Gods and Dakshinayana represents Pithrus. Uttarayana is the day time and Dakshinayana is the night time for all Gods. 

All major festivals are during the Dakshinayana period including Shravana Masa, Chatur Masa, Dasara, and Deepavali. Pitru Paksha is also during this period. 

On this day, Karkataka Sankramana when the transition happens from Uttarayana to Dakshinayana, tarpana is given to forefathers. As always Anna dana is good. Any religious activity such as reciting Vishnu Sahasranama, other devotional songs and slokas can be recited.
