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.

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.

 

Update : Sree Raghavendra Swamy Birthday – 25th February 2015

Rayaru 1

The birthday of our beloved Rayaru is on 25th Feb 2015. Since the past 6 years, I have been posting regularly about giving a Birthday Gift to our Rayaru. What might a person like Rayaru need you may ask? He needs nothing materialistic since he left all those very early in his life. He needs our utmost love and devotion and sincere Bhakthi. And now you have an opportunity to show all these to our beloved Rayaru by giving him a gift which he loves immensely.

Yes, I and many in my family have been giving a little bit our time and chanting “Sree Raghavendraya Namaha” a minimum of 16,000 times. Once you complete the chanting, any number greater than 16,000 offer it our be beloved Rayaru. Start chanting and get the blessings from Sree Raghavendra Swamy.

Some tips on how I do the Japa Count:

1. Chant in the morning, and in the evening. Keep a notepad and write down how many you have chanted. I usually have an excel spreadsheet since it makes easy to count. No writing, just recite “Sree Raghavendraya Namaha”.

2. No head bath everyday, regular thing you do for every day Pooja. In the evening, no bath, again whatever you do to perform evening pooja. Wash your face, hands and legs and perform the chanting in the evening.

3. If I miss chanting a few days, I will make up the count during the weekends when I have time.

4. I recited 1080 times everyday in the morning. I have a Japa Mala with 108 beads, so used to chant 10 rounds everyday morning.

P.S: I have sent email to info@saptaaha.com to see if they are performing the pooje they did every year. I am awaiting their response. Please visit a nearby Rayara Mutta and perform seva there and dedicate the japa count.

Guruve Varahaja Thatavaasa – ಗುರುವೇ ವರಹಾಜ ತಟವಾಸ Lyrics

Everyday as I listen to Radio Madhva Sangha, I come across unbelievable songs. This song on our Beloved Rayaru stuck in my mind. I kept singing this all day. Surprising that I had not heard this until today.

Mantralaya-2014

I went back and checked the Sree Raghavendra Swamy Lyrics page on my blog, and Mr. Vishwas S Sharma had asked about this song.

song-lyrics

So, Vishwas S Sharma here comes the lyrics in English. I found the English lyrics on this blog, and I reworked the lyrics after listening to the song several times. The blog  also has the meaning in English and Tamil. I listened to this several times to make sure I got the lyrics properly. Correct me if you think there are mistakes.

I am still working on Kananda transliteration, will update it soon.

The way the singer Sri Puttur Narasimha Nayak says Raghavendra, Guruve and Govinda Vittala brought tears to my eyes. Amazing lyrics, and an amazing singer who brought life to this song. You can listen to the song here.

Here comes the lyrics in Kannada. Let me know if there are any corrections.

ಗುರುವೇ ವರಹಾಜ  ತಟ  ವಾಸ

ಅರುಮೊರೆ  ಇಡುವೆನೋ ವರಪದ  ಪಧುಮಕೆ
ಕರುನಥಲೇನ ಮನ  ಹರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ  ಇರಿಸೋ

ಭಾಗಿ  ಭಜಿಪೇ  ಗುರುವೇ

ಎನ್ನಯ ರೋಗ  ಹರಿಸು  ಪ್ರಭುವೇ
ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ  ಧುರಿ  ತೌಧಾವಿ  ಧೂರನೇ
ಭೋಗಿ  ಶಯನ  ಪಾಧ ರಾಗಧಿ  ಭಜಿಸುವ

ಭೂತ  ಪ್ರೇತ  ಭಾಧೆ  ಬಿಡಿಸುವ
ಛಾತಿ ನಿಮ್ಮದು  ತಿಳಿದೇ
ಭೂತರೆನಿಪ  ಜನ  ಆತು ನಿಮ್ಮಪಧ
ಪ್ರೀತಿ  ಸೇವಯಲ್ಲಿ  ತತುರರಿಹರೋ

ಮೌನಿ  ವರ್ಯ ನಿನ್ನಾ
ಬೇಡುವೆ ಜ್ಞಾನ  ಭಕುತಿಯನ್ನಾ
ಧ್ಯಾನ  ಮಾಡಿ  ಅಜ್ಞ್ಯನವನೋಡಿಸೆ
ಹೀನ  ಯೋನಿ  ಭರಲೇನು  ಅಂಜೇನೋ

ಪರಿಮಳಾರ್ಯರ್ ಎಂದು  ನಿಮ್ಮಯ
ಬಿರುಧು  ಕೇಳಿ  ಬಂದು
ಮೊರಯನಿಡುವೇ  ತವ  ಚರಣಂ  ಬುರುಹಕೆ
ಅರವನೀಯೋ  ತವ  ಪರಿಮಳ  ಸ್ವಭಗನು

ಗುರು  ಸುಧೀಂದ್ರ  ಕರಜ ತೋರ್ಪುದು
ಹರಿಯ  ಪಾದ   ವಿಸಜಾ
ವರ್ಧ  ಸುಹೃಧ್ಗ  ಗುರು  ಗೋವಿಂದ  ವಿಠಲನ
ಚರಣ  ಸರೋಜವ  ನಿರುತ  ಭಾಜಿಪ  ಗುರು

The lyrics in Baraha given by Mr. Bhmsen Doss is attached below. May our beloved Rayaru bless Mr. Bhimsen Doss.

Miracle at Kamadhenu Kshetra

kamadhenu-kshetra

I have posted several articles on Kamadhenu Kshetra. Last week Ms.Shubha Murthy mentioned she talked to Sree Gurushesh and he shared this miracle with her. Attached the email contents from Ms.Shubha.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

“A trader, who is a Rayaru devotee, had an issue with the piece of land he owns in Bangalore. And for the past 3-4 days Rayaru was in his dream, asking him to visit Kamadhenu Kshetra. But for the previous day, Rayaru, in his dream again showed Gurugalu (Gurushesh) picture and asked him to visit Kamadhenu Kshetra saying Gurugalu (Gurushesh) will solve his problem. So the next day the trader visited the punya kshetra and narrated the story to Garugalu (Gurushesh) and got Rayaru and his blessing.” Very interesting one. These incidents makes us more and more curious to visit the punya kshetra.
————————————————————————————————————————————————-
You can find all the posts I have posted on this website the past several years.

If you get a chance, please do visit and get blessings from our Beloved Rayaru and also Sree Gurushesh. I will post many more miracles which are happening at Kamadhenu Kshetra.

And attached below link has details from the phone numbers, emails IDs, bus routes and directions.
