Jaya kolhapura nilaye – ಜಯ ಕೊಲ್ಹಾಪುರ ನಿಲಯೇ Lyrics

Over the past few weeks, around 8-10 of my Satsangha friends have started to learn Devaranamas. Miss. Padma asked me to teach songs, and many others decided they also want to learn and we started this online sessions on Wednesday’s and from this week on Tuesday’s in the night. The first song I taught was the song from none other than our beloved Rayaru “Indu Enage Govinda”. Last week, Miss Sasipriya requested to learn Jaya kolhapura nilaye – ಜಯ  ಕೊಲ್ಹಾಪುರ  ನಿಲಯೇ . Since I had not learnt this song, my Sister Suma said she knew and volunteered to teach us all this amazing song written by none other than Shri VyasaRajaru.

We found several web sites with lyrics in English, but none in Kannada. The book I have had the lyrics in Kannada, so I was able to scan and post it here. The tune is same as Sri. Vidyabhushan has sung on Youtube, the link which is provided. I have here the lyrics in English and the scanned copy of lyrics in Kananda.

Prayer by Sree Appanacharya

dsc_7793

As I was browsing through FB, I found this amazing link which gave a complete day to day activities  of our Beloved Rayaru  in the greatest detail as written by Sree Appanacharya who resided with Rayaru for several decades. This is one of the Prayers Sree Appanacharyaru used to recite. The very first time I read the Stotra and the meaning, I had tears rolling down my eyes. I couldn’t wait to share it with you all devotees of Rayaru.

Below is the Stotra in Kannada and Baraha English. You can copy and paste in Baraha and translate to any language of your choice.

ಸ್ವಾಮಿರಾಜ ಪ್ರಭೊ ರಾಮಚಂದ್ರ ಪ್ರಭೊ
ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ ಪ್ರಭೊ ಪಾಹಿಮಾಂ ರಕ್ಷಮಾಮೇಹಿ

mAM pAhi jIyAdbhavAnastu me SreeH sadA
namastE namastE vachastE shirastE karastE
yashastE namastE namastE namaH

The meaning of the stotra goes like this:

O king of Sanyasis, O Ramachandra’s worshipper, O Raghavendra Guru, protect me

Please do reside within me, please do get me to your place. Protect me in all ways, all worlds, and always. I am praying to you to fulfill my smallest desires, I am the smallest among small being. I am the follower of your lotus feet, please protect me.

Victory be yours. May I be protected by your grace. I salute to you. I salute to you once again. I salute to your granthas. I salute to you who prays to Lord Hari.  I salute to your hands which worshiped Lord Hari, and composed and studied Guru Madhwacharya’s granthas.

I salute to you who is praised by one and all in this world. I salute to you, I salute to you once again.

I tried my best getting the message out, if you know Sanskrit, please do correct the meaning. Hope you all recite this amazing stotra to get the blessings of our beloved Rayaru.

Learn Sree Raghavendra Stotra – One Stotra At a Time

2016aaradhane

We had another Satsangha last week at Virginia. It was just amazing to see how much devotion and bhakthi people have on our beloved Rayaru. As I was going through my won blog, I found that I had not given link for people to learn and recite the amazing Stotra step by step. I have several links for the Stotra itself, but not matter what language it is written in, it is tough for many including me to pronounce Sanskrit properly.

So, below is an amazing link on Patwari.org which has each and every sloka recited one at a time. This is a great resource for many of you to share with your friends, relatives and kids to learn the Stotra.

Learn Guru Stotra.

As always all credit goes to the webmaster. I am just providing the link for easy learning.

Difference between Sri Krishna Janmashtami and Sri Krishna Jayanthi.
Normally Shravana, Krishna Paksha Ashtami is celebrated as Sri Krishna Janmashtami. In such years, the Rohini star comes on Bhadrapada Krishna paksha Ashtami. So in places like Udupi (or those who follow solar panchanga) observe Sri Krishna Jayanthi in the month of Bhadrapada. Generally Iyegars follow this practice.
If the Rohini Nakshtra falls on Shravana Krishna Paksha Ashtami then both Sri Krishna Janmashtami and Sri Krishna Jayanthi fall on the same day. This year both Sri Krishna Janmashtami and Sri Krishna Jayanthi are on the same day.

Shri Krishnastami is celebrated on Thursday August 25th 2016. Sri Krishnastami or Krishna Jayanthi marks the celebration of the birth of Lord Sri Krishna;the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Lord Sri Krishna was born on the ‘Rohini’ nakshatra on Ashtami; that’s why it is called Krishnastami. In karnataka it is also known as Gokulashtami and Janmashtami. The festival occurs between August and September in our English calendar.

According to our Hindu mythology, Krishna was born to destroy Mathura’s demon King Kamsa, brother of his virtuous mother, Devaki. A celestial voice told Kamsa that he would be killed by the eighth child of Devaki. Alarmed by the message, Kamsa imprisoned Devaki and her husband Vasudeva. Taking no chances, Kamsa went on killing Devaki’s children soon after birth. Lord Krishna was born as the eighth child of Vasudeva at midnight. But at Krishna’s birth, under divine instructions, Vasudeva left the prison unnoticed with the baby. He crossed the mighty river Yamuna which was in spate due to heavy rains. Without any difficulty, he walked across the river protected from rain by the mighty serpent Shesha, and reached Gokul. In Gokul, on the same midnight, a girl named Yogamaya had been born to Yasoda, wife of Nanda a herdsman. The babies were exchanged, and Vasudeva came back to prison with the girl. When Kamsa was told that his sister had given birth to a child, Kamsa attempted kill the child. But the baby who was Goddess Maya, flew off to the heaven, warning Kamsa that Krishna, who would kill him, had already been born and was alive. Eventually, Krishna killed Kamsa, and released his parents from the prison, and brought peace and happiness to the common people.

In our Madhwa tradition, we are supposed to fast on this day, and late during the night; usually midnight we are supposed to give Arghya to Lord krishna. Here is the stotra to be said while giving Arghya to Lord Krishna. While giving the Arghya, hold a coin, a lemon and dried date in your right hand, and using a silver spoon offer 3 times milk and 3 times water to Lord krishna in a silver bowl, and keep repeating the below Stotra as well. Everyone in the household has to give Arghya to the Lord.

The food items performed are mostly sweet dishes, fried items and items with Avalakki. All these dishes are performed with extreme madi. If you are not able to do so, here are some useful tips:

1. The most important thing in any festival is the breaking of the coconut and offering it to god, so bring a coconut.

2. Keep also 5 fruits for offering to god, like Banana, Mango, Apple, Orange, Grapes, Plum, Pear and so on..

10. Recite Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya as many times as possible.

11. Little feet of Lord Krishna are drawn as well along with other rangolis.

11. Last but not the least, do as many namaskaras as you can and break the fast.
