Dimbadalliruva Jeeva Song Lyrics

On December 29, 2012 Ms. Chaitra asked about this song, and neelpai posted the lyrics on December 31, 2012. I heard about the song today on our Swamigalu. I had tears as I was listening to song and watching our Swamigalu.

 

And here is the lyrics for the same. Hope to convert into English also soon.

ರಚನೆ : ಶ್ರೀ ಕನಕ ದಾಸರು

ದಿಂಬದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಜೀವ ಕಂಬ ಸೂತ್ರ ಗೊಂಬೆಯಂತೆ,
ಎಂದಿಗಾದರೊಂದು ದಿನ ಸಾವು ತಪ್ಪದ್ದೊ ,
ಎಂದಿಗಾದರೊಂದು ದಿನ ಸಾವು ತಪ್ಪದ್ದೊ

ಹುಟ್ಟುತ್ತೇನೆ ತರಲಿಲ್ಲ ,ಸಾಯುತೇನು ಒಯ್ಯಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಸುಟ್ಟು ಸುಟ್ಟು ಸುಣ್ಣದಗಳು ಆಯಿತೀ ದೇಹ.
ಹೊಟ್ಟೆ ಬಲು ಕೆಟ್ಟದೆಂದು ಎಷ್ಟು ಕಷ್ಟ ಮಾಡಿದರು
ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗುವಾಗ ಗೇಣು ಬಟ್ಟೆ ಕಾಣರೋ

ಹತ್ತು ಎಂಟು ಲಕ್ಷ ಗಳಿಸಿ ಮತ್ತೆ ಸಾಲದೆಂದು ಪರರ
ಅರ್ಥಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಆಸೆ ಪಟ್ಟು ನ್ಯಾಯ ಮಾಡ್ವರೋ
ಬಿಟ್ಟಿ ಬೆಳೆಸು ತನ್ನದೆಂದು ವ್ಯರ್ಥ ಚಿಂತೆಯನ್ನು ಮಾಡಿ
ಸತ್ತು ಹೋದ ಮೇಲೆ ಅರ್ಥ ಯಾರಿಗಾಗುದೋ.

ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಹೊನ್ನು ಮಣ್ಣು ಮೂರು ತನ್ನಲಿದ್ದೂ ಉಣ್ಣಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಅಣ್ಣ ತಮ್ಮ ತಾಯಿ ತಂದೆ ಬಯಸಲಾಗದೊ
ಅನ್ನಾ ವಸ್ತ್ರ ಭೋಗಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ತನ್ನ ಸುಖವ ಕಾಣಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಮಣ್ಣು ಪಾಲು ಆದ ಮೇಲೆ ಯಾರಿಗಾಗುದೋ

ಬೆಳ್ಳಿ ಬಂಗಾರಿಟ್ತುಕೊಂಡು ಒಳ್ಳೇ ವಸ್ತ್ರ ಹೊದ್ದುಕೊಂಡು
ಚಳ್ಳ್ ಪಿಳ್ಳ್ ಗೊಂಬೆಯಂತೆ ಆಗಿ ಹೋದೆನೇ
ಹಳ್ಳ ಹರಿದು ಹೋಗುವಾಗ ಗುಳ್ಳೆ ಬಂದು ಒಡೆಯುವಂತೆ
ಗುಳ್ಳೆ ಪೊರೆಯಂತೆ ಕಾಣೊ ಸಂಸಾರದಾಟ

ವಾರ್ತೆ ಕೀರ್ತಿ ಎಂಬೋ ಎರಡು ಸತ್ತ ಮೇಲೆ ಬಂದವಯ್ಯ
ವಸ್ತು ಪ್ರಾಣ ನಾಯಕನು ಹ್ಯಾಂಗೆ ದೊರಕುವನೋ
ಕರ್ತೃ ಕಾಗಿನೆಲೆಯಾದಿ ಕೇಶವನ ಚರಣ ಕಮಲ
ನಿತ್ಯದಲಿ ಭಜಿಸಿ ಸುಖೀಯಾಗಿ ಬಾಳೇಲೋ
ಸುಖೀಯಾಗಿ ಬಾಳೇಲೋ

Krishna Krishna Krishna Yendu Lyrics

Ms. Padma Rao shared the video yesterday for this song and since than I haven’t been able to take it off my mind and have been singing it non-stop. Here is a tribute to our Swamigalu who did Krishna Seve for almost 81 years.

The Lyrics in English:

Krishna krishna krishna yendu mooru bari neneiro
santushta nagi mukuthi kottu mikka bara horuvano ||

Sakala veda shastra phatisi saaravannu tilidarenu
makara kundala darana naamake saatiillavo ||1||

Kamala nabhana chinneyanu dharisi kondu mereyiro
yamana bhataru nodi anji adavi hoguvaro ||2||

Janma vethi madhva matava anusarisi nadeiro
summanadi sri krishna tanna loka koduvano ||3||

 

The Lyrics in Kannada:

ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಯೆಂದು ಮೂರು ಬಾರಿ ನೆನೆಯಿರೊ
ಸಂತುಷ್ಟ ನಾಗಿ ಮುಕುತಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಮಿಕ್ಕ ಭಾರ ಹೊರುವನೋ ||

ಸಕಲ ವೇದ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಪಠಿಸಿ ಸಾರವನ್ನು ತಿಳಿದರೇನು
ಮಕರ ಕುಂಡಲ ಧರನ ನಾಮಕೆ ಸಾಟ್ಟಿಯಿಲ್ಲವೊ ||1||

ಕಮಲ ನಾಭನ ಚಿನ್ಹೆಯನ್ನು ಧರಿಸಿ ಕೊಂಡು ಮೆರೆಯಿರೊ
ಯಮನ ಭಟರು ನೋಡಿ ಅಂಜಿ ಅಡವಿ ಹೊಗುವರೋ ||2||

ಜನ್ಮ ವೆತ್ತಿ ಮಧ್ವ ಮತವ ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ ನಡೆಯಿರೊ
ಸುಮ್ಮಾನದಿ ಶ್ರೀ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ತನ್ನ ಲೋಕ ಕೊಡುವನೋ ||3||

 

2019 Shree Krishna Pooja Pictures

Hope you all had a wonderful and joyous Shree Krishna Jayanthi/Janmasthami. The festival was on a Friday, so I tool two days off on Thursday and Friday.

Last year I had just recovered from my ankle fracture, so this year I had so much enthusiasm to celebrate and welcome our Lord. Didn’t even have a drop of water.

My own blog helped in getting all the links for songs, food items and recipes.

Food prepration like you see were items such as:

    • Moong dal Kosambari
    • Channa dal Kosambari
    • Uppittu or Upma
    • Avalakki
    • Sweet Avalakki
    • Thengolu
    • Om Pudi
    • Shankar Poli
    • Chakli
  • Rava Laddoo
  • Besan Laddoo

I had brought the Mantapa my Late brother-in-law used to perform Shree Satyanarayana Pooje. We were able polish the same, and use it for this festival and will keep using it for all upcoming festivals. I just couldn’t take away my eyes from the Pooje we did. It was truly humbling.

Some picture from this year. You can click on pictures to see them enlarged.

Pooje preparation:

Close up of our Mantapa and the Lord.

And of course food.

Now for the next big festival Shree Gowri Ganesha Festival. We have holiday even for Gowri and Ganesha festival so that’s super awesome.

Will post all links and recipes as we approach the festival.

May Lord Krishna Bless us all. Jai Shree Krishna!

Hosa Kannu Enage Lyrics & Audio

The past few weeks I had taken the much needed vacation. I visited my Sisters place and recorded a few songs. This is an amazing song written by Shree Indiresha Dasaru – ಇಂದಿರೇಶ ದಾಸರು. Thanks Suma for the amazing melodious voice. God Bless You!

This entire song is basically asking Sri Lakshmi to give new eyes so you can see Vasudeva’s suta- son, Sri Krishna. Each verse is asking Lakshmi to rid the worldliness of desires to food, pleasures, relatives, so you can get to Sri Hari. Listen to song sung by my Sister Suma. I will post the lyrics here soon in Kannada and English.

 

2018 Shree Krishna Pooja Pictures

Hope you all had a wonderful and joyous Shree Krishna Jayanthi/Janmasthami. The festival was on a Sunday, so we had time on Saturday to do all the shopping and Monday to rest since it is Labor Day here and a holiday.

It was tough setting up the Pooja upstairs, so we decided we will do it in the Pooja room downstairs. It was tough even with that since by mid afternoon my ankle had completely swollen. I was to be honest really really depressed and kept wondering why this tough challenge, still unable to sit down, or even do activities I used to perform so easily just a few months back.  So most frying was done by my Husband.

My Daughter joined us through FaceTime during the pooje at night and was there until the end when we gave Argya to Lord Krishna. I just love technology, we can meet, share, see and perform ePooja remotely.  And today morning as I do every year, I was able to show my parents all the pooje which we had done. My dad as soon as he saw said ” So beautiful, looks like the pooje has been done in a temple.”. I had tears of joy hearing this from my Dad.

My own blog helped in getting all the links for songs, food items and recipes.

Food prepration like you see were items such as:

    • Moong dal Kosambari
    • Channa dal Kosambari
    • Uppittu or Upma

    • Sweet Avalakki
    • Thengolu
    • Om Pudi
    • Shankar Poli
  • Rava Laddoo

Last year it was yellow rose flowers and this year we brought Red roses. And as always, I tied a Tulasi Garland for our Putta Krishna.

 

 


Now for the next big festival Shree Gowri Ganesha Festival. Will post all links and recipes as we approach the festival.

May Lord Krishna Bless us all. Jai Shree Krishna!
