Rayaru Athyantha Dayalu

Technology has brought us so closer, especially phone and WhatsApp. I was forwarded this amazing video of Pravachana in our WhatsApp group about our Beloved Rayaru. It was a video from Shree Vyasaraja Mutta pravachana. I tried finding it on youtube, and Facebook but was unable to locate it. So, providing the details here in the post. All credit to whoever recorded the video.

Once a man goes to Mantralaya and does Rayaru seva for 3 days. On the 3rd day, Rayaru himself comes in his dream while sleeping and asks why he is doing seva. The man said ” I have Rs3000 loan, unable to repay the loan so please help me repay the loan. Rayaru tells in his dream ” Don’t worry, look at the person who is sleeping next to you, he has a bag, and it has Rs3000. Take that money and go”. This man was shocked, Rayaru is asking me to take money from the person sleeping next to me and runaway? He had so much faith in Rayaru that he put his hand in the bag, takes the money and started running.

While he was running, the person sleeping got woken up, and realizing that this man is taking away my money he started to run behind him. Finally, he caught him, and asked him why are you stealing my money? This person said ” I didn’t steal your money, Rayaru himself came in my dream and asked me to take money from your bag”. I am not a thief, Rayaru asked me to take the money so I took because He instructed me. I am not a thief”. This other guy was so mad he said” You are lying, does anytime Rayaru ask you to steal, you are lying” So, saying he took back the bag with the money and came back and went to sleep.

Rayaru now came in this man’s dream and asked “why are you doing seva, and what do you want”? Swami my leg is not good, can’t walk properly, I drag it a lot, and someone told me if I do your seva I would be able to walk properly”. Rayaru told him, ” how weird you are, I have already given you what you wanted, if you were not able to walk properly, how would you run all the way for such a long distance to get the money that the other guy took?

He was so shocked, he said” Rayare you have done some much to me, I didn’t even realize that you had given me what I asked for”. Rayaru asked him” I gave you your leg, what are you going to give me”? The man said ” I have Rs3000 I will put that in the hundi”. Rayaru told him ” I had already taken it and given to the other guy, so go give it back to him”

Our beloved Rayaru knows everything even without us asking him. He knows what we need to get and what we need to loose. He blesses us when we pray to him. He comes in our dreams, and provides us answers for so many of our tough situations.

As soon as I heard this short video, I was overwhelmed with emotions. I kept thinking Rayare please help me walk as soon as possible, pease help me do your seva, please help me do your namaskaras. All these days, I never asked anything to Rayaru, but this video was just overwhelming.

As always, I had no clue how to share the video, couldn’t find it, so decided to share the list with you all.

Rayare Gathiyu Namage.

Update: Pushya Nakshatra and Sunday – June 17th 2018

Sunday June 17th is Pushyaarka Yoga, so wanted to keep you all informed.

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 .

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)

Update : Sree Raghavendra Swamy Birthday – February 22nd 2018

Rayaru 1

The birthday of our beloved Rayaru is on February 22nd 2018. Since the past 9 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: please send info@saptaaha.com with your japa count. Thanks Harsha Avare.

Rayaru Singing Indu Enage Govinda

I have posted the lyrics for this very famous song written by our Beloved Rayaru. I also taught this song to the ladies in our Satsangha group.

You can find the lyrics and youtube video here:

Lyrics for Indu Enage Govinda

Two weeks back found this picture on FB and couldn’t control my tears. It is an amazing picture, may our Beloved Rayaru bless whoever painted this picture. All credit goes to the person who painted. I am just sharing to show how beautiful and heart touching the picture is.

Look at how Rayaru is singing and how Lord Krishna one hand behind and another holding a flute is looking at our Beloved Rayaru. Just stunning picture.

Who does Rayaru like Most?

I was sent this video clip my Ms. Padma Rao from our satsangha group. I had tears listening to this pravachana, and have found answers to several of my own questions. Listen to the same.

I have gone quiet for many months now, will post soon about the same. So, if you have doubts on how to do Seva to Rayaru, this pravachana gives the perfect answer.

I wanted to share with you all, and so searched on Google and finally found this on Facebook.

A million thanks to the Acharyaru who delivered this pravachana. Namma koti koti Namaskaragalu Acharyare.
