Dhanur Maasa 2022-2023

Dhanur Masa is focused on worshipping Lord Vishnu. If we worship him during this month even on a single day it is equivalent to worshipping him for a 1000 years. Isn’t that amazing?

Some important dates again, need to look in details based on your country.

12/15/2022 – 13/1/2023 – Dhanur maasa period – USA

12/17/2022 – 14/1/2023 – Dhanur maasa period – India

01/02/2023 – Vaikunta Ekadashi – Both USA and India

P.S: Check dates in your country

Also, customary to recite Sri Lakshmi Stotra which can be found below: https://meerasubbarao.wordpress.com/2021/12/22/dhanurmaasa-shree-lakshmi-stotra/

During Dhanur Maasa it is key to prepare Pongal as naivedya to Lord Vishnu. That too in the early morning hours. The ratio of preparing rice to moong dal or Hesaru bele which I saw in one of my books is as follows:

Atti uttama – One cup rice, 2 cups moong dal

Uttama – one cup rice one cup moong dal

Madhyama – 2 cups rice one cup moong dal

Adama – 4 cups rice and 1 cup moong dal.

what are you waiting for, prepare the pongal with Atti Uttama ratio and offer to Lord Vishnu.

Recipe below: But change the ratio of rice to moong dal.

Sri Vijaya Dasara Aaradhane – Nov 3rd 2022

Sri Vijaya Dasaru time (1682 – 1755)

His Aaradhane Karthika Shukla Dashami

Sloka to be recited:

ಅಜ್ಞಾನತಿಮಿರಚ್ಛೇದಂ ಬುದ್ಧಿಸಂಪತ್ಪ್ರದಾಯಕಮ್ ।

ವಿಜ್ಞಾನ ವಿಮಲಂ ಶಾಂತಂ ವಿಜಯಾಖ್ಯ ಗುರು೦ಭಜೇ ।।

Ajnanatimirachchedam buddhisampatprajodhiam |
Vigyan Vimalam Shantam Vijayakhya Gurumbhaje ||

Ajñānatimiracchēdaṁ bud’dhisampatpradāyakam।

vijñāna vimalaṁ śāntaṁ vijayākhya guru0bhajē।।

VijayaDasaru popularly called as SulaAdi Daasaru as his compositions were mostly in the form of Sulaadis’ one of the important metrical form of Haridasa literature has more than 25000 compositions to his credit. Ankita for his compositions was Lord VijayaVittala.

Sri Vijaya Dasaru along with Sri Puranadara Dasaru – Sri Jagannatha Dasaru and Sri Gopala Dasaru together are called “DaAsa Chatushtaya”, the four stalwarts of Haridasa tradition who played a significant role in spreading the philosophy of

Hari sArvottama – VaAyu Jeevottama;

Notable among the disciples of Sri Vijaya Dasaru are Sri GopalaDasaru and Sri JagannathaDasaru who have made a distinct contribution of Haridasa literature. Other disciples include key personalities like MohanaDasaru, PranesaDasaru.

Sri VijayaDasaru was an Aparoksha Jnaani – Bhrigu Amsa Sambhotha – [Sri Bhrugu Rushi the one who was instrumental for the descent of Lord Vishnu on Tirumala hills. Goddess Lakshmi Devi is known as BHARGAVI as She was born as daughter of Bhrigu Maharshi in one of the Manvantharas; Lord ParashuRama was born in the clan of Bhrugu Rushi and hence is also known as BhargavaRama;]

Sri VijayaDasaru – the man behind origin of HarikathaAmruthasaara…

If Sri JagannathaDasaru is author of Sri HarikathaAmruthasaara, it was Sri VijayaDasaru who was the man behind its origin.

It was one of his miracles/forethought/aparoksha jnaana that, during one of his visits to Maanvi kshethra (place of Sri Jagannatha Dasaru who was Sreenivaasachaarya in his proovaasrama) invited Sri Sreenivaasachaarya for Theertha-prasaada.

But, Sreenivaasachaarya didn’t want to attend; so in the pretext of having stomach ache he sent a word to Sri VijayaDasaru of his intention. It’s ok, let it be said Sri VijayaDasaru.

Sri Sreenivaasa chaarya’s false reasoning became true and he suffered with acute stomach ache which could not be cured in-spite of his sincere medical attempts and visit to divine places.

Finally he went to Mantralayam to have darshan of Sri GuruRaayaru who advised him (through swapna) to meet Sri VijayaDasaru and that is the remedy.

Then Sri Srinivasacharya went and surrendered to Sri VijayaDasaru seeking apologies for his ignorance. Sri VijayaDasaru immediately directed his disciple Sri GopalaDasaru to donate 40 years of his aayurdhaaya and that has not only saved him from his ailment, gave him longevity, but also he went on to write his magnum-opus Sri HariKathaAmruthasaAra.

HarikathaMruthasAra is considered as an essence of Dvaita-TattvavaAda Madhva philosophy; It contains 32 cantos having 988 poems in highly poetic/literary style meant for novice understanding of common man; It contains the essence of Vedas/Upanishads/Bhagawadgita in a poetic style;

But, for Sri VijayaDasaru the novice world would have missed a great script.

This incident and couple of more shows that Sri VijayaDasaru had the capacity to bring back people from the clutches of death.

> ಸಾಗಿಬಾರೈಯ ಭವರೋಗದ ವೈದ್ಯನೆ (Saagi baarayya bhavarogada vaidyane)…

This is one of the famous compositions of Sri Vijaya Dasaru that was made during one of his yaatra to Tirumala Kshethra. When he could not get darshan of Lord Srinivasa, Sri Vijayadasaru went into meditation sitting far away from the temple for a call from the Lord.

Incidentally that time Bramhotsavam festival was going on at Tirumala and that day it was Rathotsavam. The chariot of Lord Venkateswara did not move in spite of deploying the services of Elephants. Finally on the intervention of Daivagnyas people rushed to Sri Vijayadasaru for help when he composed this famous song that made the chariot to move effortlessly.

Lord Srinivasa could not ignore Sri VijayaDasaru who was Sri Bhrugu Rushi amsha the one who was instrumental for the descent of Lord Vishnu on Tirumala hills.

> ಭವರೋಗದ ವೈದ್ಯನೆ (bhavarogada vaidyane) – What does it indicate?

Vaidya means Doctor. BhavaRoga means, not only diseases, but also the cycle of birth and death (Samsaara);

Through this composition, Sri VijayaDasaru is giving us a message that the Supreme God, SriHariSarvottama, Lord Sreenivaasa the Doctor of the universe (Viswa Vaidya) is the one who helps us to cross the ocean of Samsaara and the one and the only one who relieves/releases/free us from the bondage of cycle of birth and death.

> SreeRaamo Ramabhadrascha Bhavabandhaikamochakah🙏

ನೋಡಿದೆ ಗುರುಗಳ ನೋಡಿದೆ

ನೋಡಿದೆನು ಗುರುರಾಘವೇ೦ದ್ರರ

ಮಾಡಿದೆನು ಭಕುತಿಯಲಿ ವ೦ದನೆ…… (Sri VijayaDasaru)

NODIDE GURUGALA NODIDE …

NODIDENU GURU RAAGHAVENDRARA !

MADIDENU BHAKUTIYALLI VANDANE 🙏

Those were the auspicious words uttered by none other than Aparoksha Jnaani – Bhrigu Amsa Sambhotha Sri VijayaDasaru when he saw the divine picture inside Moola Brundavana of Sri Guru Raayaru having visesha sannidhana of the Supreme God Hari Sarvottama in the form of…

> Rama, Krishna NaraHari, VedaVyasa,

> Sri Madhvacharya along with

> Sri GuruRaayaru;

Perhaps Sri VijayaDasaru might be the only one who could get the fortune of witnessing such a divine scenario inside Moola Brundavana of Sri Guru Raayaru;

Do we need any other testimony? that Sri RaAyaru is very much present inside Moola Brindavana with visesha/nithya VaAyu Aavesha; Sri VijayaDasaru has shown us the way of anusandhana while having darshan of Sri GuruRaayara Brundavana.

Known as Daasappa Sri VijayaDasaru was born in a poor Brahmin family at a village called Cheekalaparavi (Chippagiri) in Maanvi Tq of Raichur dt; studied at Kaasi became a renowned Sanskrit scholar, had his ankita from Purandaradasaru (in swapna) in one of his visits to Kaasi became VijayaDasaru, had the grace of Sri VedaVyasaru; lived and had last breath at Cheekalaparavi on Karthika Sukla Dasami.

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.
