420th Vardanthi Utsava at Mantralaya

I hope you all prayed to our beloved Rayaru on his birthday or Vardanthi as it is called. I am in Texas for work, and will be able to hopefully do seva when I get home for the weekend.
I did pray to our beloved Rayaru digitally. Will eat just fruits and nuts today and tomorrow.

Maha Shivaratri – 17th Feb 2015

shiva_Pooja

Maha Shivaratri is celebrated on Tuesday 17th Feb 2015. It is mandatory to visit the temple and seek the blessings of Lord Shiva during this day. In many customs they do fast on this day, but in our Madhwa tradition it is a festival and we do not fast. I remember visiting the Shiva Temple at Vijaya College in Bijapur which had 1001 Lingas along with my parents every year.

Attached below are prayers to say for Lord Shiva and seek his blessings.


Vandhe Sambhum Umaapathim Suragurum
Vandhe Jagath Kaaranam
Vandhe Pannaga Bhooshanam Mrigadharam
Vandhe Pasoonaam Pathim
Vandhe Soorya Sasaanga Vahnni Nayanam
Vandhe Mukundha Priyam
Vandhe Baktha Janaasryam Cha
Varadham Vandhe Sivam Sankaram

Meaning:

I bow to Sambu the Lord of Uma and the teacher of the Devas. I bow to the Lord Who is the root cause of the entire world. I bow to the Lord, Who has the serpent as His ornament, Who carries a deer. I bow to the Lord of all beings. I bow to the Lord Who has the Sun, the Moon and the Fire as His three eyes. I bow to Him Who is fond of Mukundha. I bow to Him, Who is the refuge of all devotees and Who grants boons to them. I bow to Siva, the creator of all auspicious things.

This blog has an entire page dedicated to Lord Shiva. Check the link below to find 20 lyrics on Lord Shiva:

Astothra Pooja Paddati Book – By Shri Sethu Rao

IMG_2465Received this amazing book from Shri. Sethu Rao. Thanks sir for such a wonderful gift. There is no words to express my gratitude.

To receive a book on our Beloved Rayaru, which came to me on a Thursday, is a great sign from Rayaru.

As per Shri. Sethu Rao “Happy to announce, Our Astothra  Mandali has completed 13th year with 711 astothras & with great enthusiasm we entered 14th year with Astothra (712).”

I pray to our beloved Rayaru to help him and his Mandali complete many more Ashtotras and reach greater heights. Hopefully, during one of my visits to India, I will be able to take part in one of these programs and get blessings from our Beloved Rayaru.
