Shravana Friday’s

It was amazing performing Shravana Masa Friday poojes for the past 4 weeks. Even though I do Shree Maha Lakshmi Sahasranama every Friday, following my Mother’s foot steps, Shravana Masa is different since I also recite the Shukravarada Haadu. So, reciting all the songs and the Shukravarada Haadu will be missed for the next one year.

The list of Shree Maha Lakshmi songs I have in the blog is amazing, so I picked a few new ones each Friday so I could get to them all. A few pictures of the Friday’s pooje. We don’t have the vratas in our family.

The flowers such as Jasmine and Roses, the Tulasi all from our own Garden. The enthusiasm to prepare everything, arranging, decorating is something which brings so much joy each Shravana Masa. Until next year.

Shri Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhane 2021

  • August 24th – Tuesday – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Madya Aaradhane

  • August 25th – Wednesday – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Uttara Aaradhane

In some cities in USA, including Maryland it is being celebrated on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

And also watch Mantralaya celebrations online. 



Shri Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhane  is celebrated all across India, and many other countries in Rayara Matta’s and also many households. My parents do Rayara Seva every year during Aaradhane, and I being a strong devotee  of Rayaru do it myself; no matter where I am in the world. I did it when I was in India, Dubai and continue doing here as well in the USA. So, if you are a devotee, than try doing as much or as little as possible to this great Guru of ours and get his blessings.

If you need to know how to do Seva, here is a link from the Mantralaya web site about who and how the seva should be performed. Read the link here:

In paragraph 10, it clearly states other ways of offering seva to Rayarau as such:

10.Are there other ways of performing Seva to Rayaru?

Yes. As stated before, if one is sincere and devoted to Hari, Vayu and Rayaru, there are many ways of performing Seva to Rayaru. The following section lists some of the main ones:

a) Sitting in one place and reciting Sri Raghavendra stotra 108 times.

b) Hejje namaskara (going around the Brindavana advancing one foot at a time and performing namaskara for each stride)

c) Urulu Seva – rolling on the body and going around the brindavana. This is forbidden for women.

d) Reciting Sri Raghavendra stotra 108 times while performing abhisheka for Rayara Brindavana with cow’s milk.

e) Going through religious works composed by great gyaanis; some of the popular ones are Sudha, Parimala, Sri Madhva Vijaya,Sri Raghavendra Vijaya etc.

In all of the above cases, the main ingredient is sincerity, pure heart and intense devotion.

I have added several lyrics on Shri Raghavendra Swamy in this blog, you can look for those at the lyrics page, or click on the Shri Raghavendra Swamy categories section and you will be listed with several songs. There are several songs as well on the audio on youtube page.

A new page is also created with all the lyrics for our beloved Rayaru.

Shri Krishna Ashtotra – 108 names In Kannada, Sanskrit and Meaning

I have posted the Shri Krishna Ashtotra – 108 names In English here. Recite this tomorrow as you are offering Lord Krishna either Tulasi or flowers or Manthrakshate on a plate. Women usually don’t recite Om, in that case replace Om with Shree.


Shri Krishna Ashtotra – 108 names In English

If you find it tough reciting these 108 names, you can also just say Om Krishnaaya Namaha or Shree Krishnaaya Namaha 108 times.

Just remember our Lord is very forgiving, he needs just our Bhakthi.

From Mantralaya – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane Pictures. Shree Prahalada Rajaru was decorated as Rama with bow you can see. We saw online videos as well.

From my home. Dad did Saligrama Pooje, Mritika Brindavana Pooje and also Abhisheka. Tied Tulasi Mala for all Rayaru photos from our garden.

2020 Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane Pictures

From Mantralaya – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane Pictures

From my home. It was quite emotional doing Rayaru Seva this year. As you all know Mom was one of the greatest devotee of Rayaru. When I was upset on Rayaru when she was in hospital, she kept telling me “Rayaru Mahanubhavaru, Yake Avara mele kopa Meera”. She came in my dream also and asked me not to be upset on Rayaru and it was time for her to go.

Anyone of us was sick, had trouble, or anything not working according to plan, you could count on Mom to do Rayaru Seva. And she diligently visited 4TH T block Mutta and offered her thanks. Almost every month she used to perform Kanakabhisheka for Rayaru at the mutta. Rain or shine she had to go see Rayaru every Thursday.
Every year, as soon as I performed day 1 Seva, I used to do a video chat and show her my Pooja room. She used to be so happy and always asked me to not overdo, and not restrict food too much. While doing Seva I eat just 1 meal, no coffee, no tea, no fruits, just lunch at noon and nothing else.

This year, all those memories came back as soon as I finished day 1 Pooja. My dad was with me and he did Saligrama Pooje, and Panchamrutha Abhisheka for God and Rayaru. Tulasi and Kanakambara from our own garden. I tied the garland with both Tulasi and Kanakambara.

As my extended family I thought of sharing with you all my thoughts today. I need your blessings and positive thoughts to get strength to bear the loss.

Lets all pray together to Rayaru to cure COVID from this world.

Guru Sarvabhowma Ki Jai.

Mangalam Jayamangalam on Shree Raghavendra Swamigalu. On the eve of Sri Raghavendra Swamiji’s 349th Aradhane, a small seva from me to my beloved Rayaru. I sing this song also during all our satsanghas at the end.

I will post the lyrics soon.
