Sri Madhwa Navami at SKV, NC – Part 3

My earliest memory is of sitting with my Mom and Sister while my Mom performed Rayaru seva, singing bhajane. I learned many compositions from my father and continue to do so. I also learned from my late Ajji and Nalina Aunty. I vividly recall receiving a Bhajane book specifically about Rayaru from my late Mysore Tatha (Grandfather).

And it’s actually fantastic that we now have this chance to learn at our temple and also online. On a few projects I’m involved with, a new post has to be written. Stay tuned.

The Haridasaru’s taught that the simplest way to attain liberation is through the constant practice of Hari Bhajane. Sri Vadirajaru said, “Hari Bhajana Maado Nirantara – Paragatigidu Nirdhara” meaning “Perform Hari Bhajan constantly, it will lead to liberation without fail.” They believed that the path to Mukti lies solely in following the teachings of the Haridasaru.

As I mentioned in my previous 2 posts, we did Bhajane thrice during the Madhwa Navami celebrations. Some benefits of doing Bhajane on a regular basis:

  • Promotes devotion and spirituality: Bhajane helps to cultivate devotion towards God and promotes spiritual growth.
  • Relaxation and stress relief: Singing devotional songs has been found to have a calming effect on the mind and body, reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Improved mental health: Regular Bhajane practice has been associated with improved mental health, including increased happiness and reduced symptoms of depression.
  • Improved focus and concentration: Bhajane requires focus and concentration, which can improve cognitive skills and memory.
  • Increased community involvement: Bhajane is often performed in groups, which can help to build strong community bonds and increase social interaction.
  • Cultural preservation: Bhajane is an important part of India’s cultural heritage and practicing it helps to preserve this tradition and pass it down to future generations.

In this recording, I have shared us sing “Kayo Sree Narashima”. I had learnt this in 2014 and posted a video as sung by my Mother.

The one we sing at the temple has a different tune. It is truly amazing to be part of the Bhajane Group and be able to sing during major festivals and Dasara Aaradhanes.

Youtube Video attached below:

How should you see God in a temple?

Whenever we visited any temple, my Amma always said ” Meera, don’t directly look at God’s face, start from his pada or feet.”. She must have told me a million times especially when she visited Tirupati that by the time she started from Lord’s feet and got to his Mukha or Face, they would have pulled her and dragged away from the Lord.

Of course, in other Sri Venkateshwara temples, we can stand in front of the Lord as much as we want and follow the rule that is mentioned below. I definitely follow this rule when I visit our SV Temple here in North Carolina. Lord Venkateshwara is just mesmerizing. Each visit, we come back with so much joy and keep reminiscing about him until our next visit.

Again, this is not just applicable to Lord Venkateshwara, any temple you visit, no matter which God it is dedicated to, follow these simple rules. The words are self explanatory so not posting any explanation.

Sri Madhwa Navami at SKV, NC – Part 2

Hope you were able to read Part 1 which was posted yesterday :

As part of the celebrations, we had Bhajane thrice during the course of the function. One at 9.30 AM, one of the songs which I posted yesterday in the video: ” Guru Madhwa Rayarige Namo Namo“. We sang several other songs, I will try and edit the videos and post them when time permits.

The second time we did Bhajane was when our Chief Priest Sri Udupa Avaru was switching to perform the homa. During this transition, we sang “Pavamana and Veera Hanuma“.

The thrid Bhajane session was while Acharyaru was giving Theertha. At this time we sang “Madhwa Nama”.

The decorations and flower garlands made by Volunteers were truly superb. You can see the Idols decorated in the video. I learned many tricks for making garlands. Using betel leaves, making a garland, and writing “Ram” on the leaves, isn’t that so beautiful?

So, here comes Part 2 with the song “Pavamana Pavamana” and close to 50-60 people singing. It is truly mind-blowing.

Sri Madhwa Navami at SKV, NC

Yesterday, we witnessed one of the best-ever celebrations in our life on the eve of Madhwa Navami at Shri Krishna Vrindavana, Cary, North Carolina. It felt like we were part of a community we knew for decades even though it is exactly 6 months since we moved here temporarily.

Please find attached one of the videos – Part 1, from the celebrations yesterday. I will break down the videos into smaller chunks and post.

And before I post the video, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers of this temple.

Poojya Sri Swamigale,

It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to write in response to the warm and cordial welcome that this Krishna Vrindavana community has given us over the past six months. I thank you in the name of Hari, Vayu and Gurugalu, and I thank you in the name of hundreds of people who visit this amazing temple. Words cannot describe the amount of gratitude we have for you. 

Chief Priest Udupa Acharyare.

Thank you for being such a great example. You’re a blessing to our community. A temple as we all know is not just a mere place of worship, but a sacred home where God resides. And with your pooje and rituals that you regularly perform, including on special occasions ( poojas, homas), from the morning worship to the evening pooje when you sing the lali songs, it brings divinity and bhakti towards God. The dedication and devotion you have is unmatched, whether there is 1 person sitting here in the temple, or we have 100s of people watching you do pooje. Your service has energized all devotees to participate fully in all functions, and invest their time in serving the temple as well. 

Albert Einstein said “Everything in life is Vibration”.  The sound vibrations from Acharyara chanthing brings a state of calmness to the mind. It helps ease our daily stress, and take us to a higher level of consciousness.

Acharyare, You have real concern for the devotees and treat us all with sympathy and understanding. And you truly are an intermediary between God and us the worshippers who come to this temple.

Like they say “archakastu hari sakshat chara rupi na samsayah” is very true about you acharyare.

Head Cook Gundu Rao Avare

Hinduism places such great emphasis on the role of food that it has been called “the kitchen religion.” I read this somewhere. No religious function is complete without the distribution of food, especially prasada and how can we forget the delicious food prepared by Gundu Rao avaru.

There is widespread belief that the consciousness of the cook enters the food and influences the mind of the eater. This maybe one of the reasons why we are so attached to this temple, because the prasadathat has been cooked by you and offered with devotion by Acharyaru to God, inclines the mind towards spirituality.

Prabha Avare, 

I have no idea when this temple became a home for us. It is all because of your hospitality and caring nature. And your two boys are like our Muddu Krishna for us. Thanks for every warm welcome “Namaskara, hegidhira” you say with so much affection”.


Last but not the least, and in no order, I would also like to thank all the volunteers who tirelessly work here in this temple. I don’t want to name anyone, because I know I will miss a few names. Each and everyone of you have made this temple an amazing place of worship and a community like no other I have ever witnessed. Thanks All.

Poojya Swamigale,

Thanks once again for building such an amazing temple and an amazing community here in Cary, North Carolina. We are truly blessed to be part of this temple and be among amazing Krishna bhakataru. 

Narayana Narasimha Vedavyasa Lyrics and Audio

This song composed by Sri Purandara Dasaru is like traveling all over India and visiting all holy places. It is called Taraka Mantra in my book. Very easy to recite. Its like traveling all directions in India, North, South, East and West.

Gita Jayanthi – December 3rd & 4th 2022

USA – December 3rd 2022

India – December 4th 2022

P.S: Check dates in your country.

The Shukla Ekadashi of Margasheersha Masa was when we got the greatest gift from Lord Sri Krishna – The Bhagavad Gita. Lord Krishna imparted the Bhagawad Gita to his greatest devotee Arjuna. This day is celebrated as Gita Jayanthi. It is also an important Ekadashi in many many parts of India, and of course to Madhwas.

On this day Lord Krishna spoke to Arjuna about the ultimate goal of human life in 700 verses in 18 Chapters.

The Bhagavad Gita is considered to be the greatest spiritual books the world has ever known. In a very clear and wonderful way Lord Krishna describes the science of self-realization and the exact process by which a human being can establish their eternal relationship with God.

I still remember singing the the first sloka in the Bhagavad Gita in my school:

dharmakshetre kurukshetre samaveda yuyutsavaha
mamaka pandavaschaiva kimakurvata sanjayaha

Some posts I have in the blog are listed below:


Our SKV, temple here in North Carolina has Bhagavad Gita Recitation starting at 5:00PM on December 3rd. Come join us and recite the Gita.
