Shri Vara Mahalakshmi Vrata – August 12th 2016

Shri Vara Mahalakshmi Vrata is performed by married Hindu women to seek the blessings of the Goddess Mahalakshmi, wife of Lord Vishnu.

The Vrata is observed on the Friday immediately preceding the full moon day of the month of
Sravana Masa. On the day of Pooje or Vrata, women clean their homes and decorate their front yards with rangolis. Later, they take a bath and deck wear pure silk saree and jewellery. The lady performing the pooje makes a mandala with the drawing of a lotus upon it. A kalasha filled with rice and topped with fresh mango and betel leaves, a coconut smeared with haldi and kumkum and cloth are placed on the mandala and Lakshmi is invoked therein.

After the worship of the kalasha, follows the worship of Ganesha, then the worship of the sacred thread. Now the main worship of Vara Lakshmi begins and the scared thread is worshipped a second time. It is then tied to the right hand of the lady. After the worship thamboola is given to 5 married ladies.

The same evening, we invite all the neighboring ladies(married women) and offer them tamboola; also called veeledele Adike, which is an offering of betel leaves, fruits, betel nuts, kumkum, haldi and dakshine. At this point the ladies also sing songs in praise of goddess Varalakshmi.

Attached below is a scanned vrata procedure in Kannada:

So, here comes the link which has the lyrics for all songs posted on this blog on Goddess Lakshmi.

P.S: As always no food is prepared with onion or garlic.

Shree Raghavendra Satsangha Pictures– June Sunday 19th @ Maryland

As promised, I am updating all of you on the Satsangha we had yesterday, Sunday June 19th. It was just an amazing experience to host the same at my place. We recited all stotras as mentioned in the website by Shri Rajaraman. I also had kept the books provided to me by Shri Canchi Ravi and gave them to three wonderful women to read about the miracles of our Beloved Rayaru.

We started promptly at 6.00 PM. We started with Shree Vishnu Sahasranama and later covered all the songs mentioned on the Satsangha web site. Everyone had brought flowers and fruits as you can see in the pictures below. The entire home filled with chanting of Shree Raghavendra, and that was such a humbling experience. And listening to the miracles from at least a few people was a chilling experience.

Please find attached the Satsangha Pictures.

Bhalire Bhalire Narashima Lyrics

Narashima1

Yesterday as I was driving to work and listening to the song Guruve Varahaja Thatavasa and once this song finished another amazing song on Lord Narashima started playing. I thought this was really a blessing from Lord Narashima himself.

I couldn’t wait to come back home and search for the song and the lyrics itself. It is quite a popular song and I was amazed how we missed it here in the blog. I am currently posting the PDF link available online in Kananda and two links for the song it self. As time permits I will post the lyrics in English as well. If anyone of you have the time and inclination to help the several thousands devotees  who request lyrics in English, please take the time wot note down the lyrics and post it here.

The link for the PDF in Kannada is attached below:
