The common interpretation of Pushyaarka Yoga is the combination of Pushya Nakshatra and Thursday or Sunday.This common interpretation is when moon entering Pushya nakshatra on Thursday  or Sunday is PushyArka yoga .

July 4th 2019 is Pushya Nakshatra and Thursday.

Raghavendra Mutta says “On this Holy day one should Recite or Chant Guru Stotra ( Raghavendra Stotra)s, Singing songs will bring happiness and prosperity in your life.”

The significance of this day is also mentioned in Rayara Stotra – 27th Stanza.

Anyone who recites this holy Sri Raghavendra Stotram 108 times with intense devotion, on the occasion of solar/lunar eclipse or the combination of Sunday with the star Pushya, will be relieved of all evil influence, e.g., haunting etc. (27)

Karuni Kayo Raghavendra – ಕರುಣಿ ಕಾಯೋ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ Lyrics and Audio

I had written about this very famous song we used to listen my parents sing and we ourselves used to sing this for all these years. I had posted about this song on June 22nd 2010, close to 9 years back. Read about the post here:
Karuni Kayo Raghavendra – ಕರುಣಿ ಕಾಯೋ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ

I had been searching for the lyrics for a long long time and never found it. Over the past three weeks since I was on vacation, I used to recite this song so many times. I talked to my mom today morning as well and she said there was no such song and we just used to sing it. I had also blogged about the first paragraph in my blog (Link above), and no one could find the lyrics.

The past three days, I kept singing this in my dream constantly. Today, I decided to write down the lyrics I was singing and look how amazingly the song came out. I thought it was just a dream, but when I kept getting the same dream and repeating the lyrics, I decided to write it down finally. I recorded the song, and posted it on youtube.

 

I know the song has no ankitha, shouldn’t be sung is what everyone says. For me, this is the most dearest song of my beloved Rayaru. It brings tears to me when I sing this. I am posting it so I can keep track of it. Hope you all understand my sentiments.

The lyrics in English are listed below. I will translate in Kannada also soon.
