Mangala Mandirage Mangala Murarige

Mangala song, yet another amazing composition by Shri Prasanna Venkata Dasaru on Lord Venkateshwara. From the same book Sri Prasanna Venkata Dasara Samagra Keerthanegalu – Part 1.

ಮಂಗಳ ಮಂದಿರಗೆ ಮಂಗಳ ಮುರಾರಿಗೆ

ಮಂಗಳ ಮಂದಿರಗೆ ಮಂಗಳ ಮುರಾರಿಗೆ
ಮಂಗಳ ತಿಮ್ಮಯ್ಯಗೆ ಜಯಮಂಗಳ ॥ ಪ ॥

ನೀಲಘನಕಾಯಗೆ ಶ್ರೀಲಕುಮಿ ಸಹಾಯಗೆ
ವ್ಯಾಳನಶಾಯಿಗೆ ಭಾಳನೇತ್ರಧ್ಯೇಯಗೆ || 1 ||

ದೀನ ಪರಿಶುದ್ಧಂಗೆ ದಾನವರನೊದ್ದಂಗೆ
ಆನಂದನಿರುದ್ದಂಗೆ ಮಾನವ ಮೃಗೇಂದ್ರಗೆ || 2 ||

ಶೇಷಗಿರಿವಾಸಗೆ ದಾಸಭಯನಾಶಗೆ
ತೋಷಪೂರ್ಣಹಾಸಗೆ ಪ್ರಸನ್ವೆಂಕಟೇಶಗೆ || 3 ||

Added my own tune.

Maṅgaḷa mandirage maṅgaḷa murārige

maṅgaḷa mandirage maṅgaḷa murārige

maṅgaḷa tim’mayyage jayamaṅgaḷa॥ pa॥

nīlaghanakāyage śrīlakumi sahāyage

vyāḷanaśāyige bhāḷanētradhyēyage || 1 ||

dīna pariśud’dhaṅge dānavaranoddaṅge

ānandaniruddaṅge mānava mr̥gēndrage || 2 ||

Ananthanagantu Rangoli

Shree Anantha Padmanabha Vrata or Ananthana Vrata or Anantha Chaturdhasi as it is called is celebrated on September 9th 2022 Friday in USA and India. We don’t have this vrata at my place. 

 

I saw at several places where there was a special rangoli called Ananthana Gantu being drawn for this Vrata. I learnt the same. practiced on my notebook and hope to draw at least the rangoli on Friday.

I couldn’t create a video, so a series of pictures will help you draw the same. The tedious process is putting the 15 X 15 dots and in a straight line.

It is usually drawn as the base and kept in your pooja room. I have tried to simplify as much as possible. Just knowing what dots to join is key here as shown below in several images. Click on the images to see enhanced view.
