Swarna Gowri Vrata Katha

It is customary to listen to the Vratha Katha after performing pooje. Here comes a small video in Kannada on Swarna Gowri Vratha Katha. I will soon post Katha for Ganesha festival also.

Akshaya Patre Rangoli

An amazing rangoli to be drawn during any major festivals like Shree Vara MahaLakshmi pooje, Shravana Fridays, Gowri and Ganesha festival. It is called Akshaya Patre Rangoli – ಅಕ್ಷಯ ಪಾತ್ರೆ ರಂಗೋಲಿ.

I saw this Rangoli as shared by Ms. Sowmya Raghav, our Bhajane and Harikathamrutasara teacher. Ms. Sowmya had shared a picture during Shree Vara Maha Lakshmi pooje. I asked about the same and finally found a couple videos and learnt to draw the Rabgoli. Thanks so much Sowmya for sharing the same.

I first practiced on paper and later drew it on my Rangoli tile with chalk.

Draw a dot at the center and on 8 corners 5 dots each. Five lines reducing in size in between as seen below. And join from the center dot to the tip of the opposite line.

Continue as such on all corners.

Write Shree ಶ್ರೀ  and apply Haldi Kumkum. Click on the above images to see a bigger picture and zoom.
