Pushyarka Yoga @ Mantralaya

dsc_6252

As I was going through the Mantralaya website, reading the following sentences brought tears in my eyes. Imagine thousands of devotees saying “Om Sree Raghavendraya Namaha”, and being part of that. Just out of this world. And imagine how our Rayaru might be blessing his devotees reciting his name. Text from the website below:

“Sunday 24th January 2016 saw a celestial muhurta – Pushya Yoga on a Sunday with full moon(hunnime) thrown in for added measure. Sri appannacharya has mentioned the greatness of this muhurta in his ode “Raghavendra Ashotara” (Sri poornabhodha guru teertha …). He says – “Soma surya parage cha pushyarkadhi samagame, Yonuthamam idham stotram ashtothara satham japeth”.

Keeping this in mind, H.H. Swamiji had organised a mega event which was made a success by thousands of devotees. Rayara Ashottara has 8 aksharas in it and it was Swamiji’s intention to offer 8 crore repitions of the said japa. Accordingly thousands of devotees took up his clarion call and surpassed his expectations and tallied a total of over 22 crore japas. Truly magnificient offering on the holy day. Along with the regular early morning pooja, special panchamruta abhisheka to Rayara brundavana by Swamiji, a special Raghavendra Ashtottara Homa was conducted as an offering of the Ashottara Japa Yaga held by h. H. Swamiji.

The prakara then resonated with the ashottara parayana which culminated with hundreds of devotees repeating “Om Sree Raghavendraya Namaha” 108 times on the top of their voices which was a sight to behold. A few photos as a glimpse of the days events…”

Shri Raghavendra Stotra or Shri Poornabhodha Stotra Lyrics/

Rayare Gathiyu Namage – ರಾಯರೇ ಗತಿಯು ನಮಗೆ Lyrics

IMG_5360

How appropriate is this song for all of us who are devotees of our Beloved Rayau. I saw this song lyrics posted on Facebook by Sri. Nagaraju Haveri. I requested his permission to post this here. Thanks, Sir for the lyrics.
( ಶ್ರೀ ಶ್ಯಾಮಸುಂದರದಾಸರ ಕಣ್ಣಲ್ಲಿ ಶ್ರೀ ಗುರುಸಾರ್ವಭೌಮರು )

ರಾಗ : ಕಾಂಬೋಧಿ ತಾಳ : ಝಂಪೆ

ರಾಯರೇ ಗತಿಯು ನಮಗೆ ।
ವಾಯು ಮತ ಮತೋದ್ಧಾರ ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ ಗುರು ।। ಪಲ್ಲವಿ ।।

ಶುಕ ಪಿಕ ಮೊದಲಾದ ವಿಕುಲಕ್ಕೆ ಮಧುರ ಫಲ ।
ಯುಕುತವಾಗಿಹ ಚೂತ ಸುಕುಜ ಗತಿಯೋ ।
ಮುಕುತಿಗೆ ಸುಜ್ಞಾನ ಭಕುತಿ ವಿರಕುತಿ ಗತಿಯು ।
ಅಕಳಂಕ ಶ್ರೀಮಂತ್ರ ಮಂದಿರದಿ ನೆಲೆಸಿಪ್ಪ ।। ಚರಣ ।।

ಋಷಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಣವೆ ಗತಿ ರುಷಗಳಿಗೆ ಜಲವೆ ಗತಿ ।
ಸಸಿಗಳಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಗೆ ಶಶಿ ರವಿ ಗತಿಯೋ ।
ಶಿಶುಗಳಿಗೆ ಜನನಿ ಗತಿ ಪಶುಗಳಿಗೆ ತೃಣವೆ ಗತಿ ।
ಅಸಮ ಮಹಿಮೆಯಲಿ ಮೆರೆವ ಮಿಸುನಿಶಯ್ಯನಜರಾದ ।। ಚರಣ ।।

ಕಾಮಿನಿ ಮಣಿಯರಿಗೆ ಕೈಪಿಡಿದ ಕಾಂತ ಗತಿ ।
ಭೂಮಿ ಬುಧರಿಗೆ ಮಧ್ವ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಗತಿಯೋ ।
ತಾಮರಸ ಸಖ ಸುತನ ಧಾಮ ಭಯ ಪೋಪುದಕೆ ।
ಶ್ಯಾಮಸುಂದರವಿಠ್ಠಲ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ ನಾಮವೆ ಗತಿಯೋ ।। ಚರಣ ।।

ವಿವರಣೆ :

ಶುಕ = ಗಿಳಿ
ಪಿಕ = ಕೋಗಿಲೆ
ವಿಕುಲ = ಪಕ್ಷಿ ಕುಲ
ಚೂತ ಸುಕುಜ = ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಮಾವಿನ ಮರ
ಪ್ರಣವ = ಓಂಕಾರ
ರುಷಗಳು = ಜಲಚರ ಪ್ರಾಣಿಗಳು
ಮಿಸುನಿಶಯ್ಯಜ = ಹಿರಣ್ಯಕಶಿಪುವಿನ ಮಗ
ತಾಮರಸ ಸಖ = ಕಮಲದ ಹೂವಿಗೆ ಮಿತ್ರನಾದ ಸೂರ್ಯ
ಸುತನ = ಯಮಧರ್ಮರಾಜರ
ಧಾಮ = ಪುರಕ್ಕೆ

ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಯರನ್ನು ಯಾರು ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಭಕ್ತಿ ಶ್ರದ್ಧೆಗಳಿಂದ ಪೂಜಿಸುತ್ತಾರೋ, ಭಜಿಸುತ್ತಾರೋ, ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಯರೇ ಗತಿಯೆಂದು ಸರ್ವ ಕಾಲಗಳಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ಸೇವಿಸುತ್ತಾರೋ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಶ್ರೀ ಯಮಧರ್ಮರಾಜರ ಭಯವು ಅಂದರೆ ” ನರಕ ” ದ ಭಯ ಇಲ್ಲ ಎನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ಶ್ರೀ ಶ್ಯಾಮಸುಂದರದಾಸರು ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ ಗುರುರಾಯರ ಅದ್ಭುತ ಮಹಿಮೆಯನ್ನು ಅತಿ ಮನೋಜ್ಞವಾಗಿ ಸರಳ ಸುಂದರವಾಗಿ ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ನಮ್ಮ ನಿಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ರಾಯರೇ ಗತಿಯು ನಮಗೆ ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ ಗುರುರಾಯರೇ ಗತಿಯು!!!!!

Ms. Shashikala has sent the lyrics for yet another amazing song. Thanks. Ms.Shashikala.

ಯಾರಿಂದಲೂ  ಸುಖ  ಶಾಂತಿ  ಲಬಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಯಾರು  ಬೇಡಿದರು  ಬದುಕು  ಬೆಳಗಾಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಪರಿ  ಪರಿ  ವಿಧದಲಿ ಭಕ್ತರ  ರಕ್ಷಿಸುತಿರುವಿರಿ
ನಿಮಗೆ  ಶರಣು  ಎಮ್ಮನು  ಪಾಲಿಸೈ ಗುರುವೇ

ತುಂಗಾ ತೀರದಲಿ ನೆಲೆಯಾಗಿ  ನಿಂತು
ಕರುಣಾಕರನಾಗಿರುವಿರಿ ಲೋಕಪಾಲಕನಾಗಿರುವಿರಿ
ನಿಮ್ಮ  ನಾಮ  ಜನ್ಮ  ಸಾರ್ಥಕವಲ್ಲವೆ
ಜಯ  ಜಯ    ಶ್ರೀ  ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ  ಗುರುವೇ

ತಿಳಿದು  ತಿಳಿಯದೆ  ಮಾಡಿದ ಎಮ್ಮ ತಪ್ಪುಗಳ್ಳನೆಲ್ಲ ಮನ್ನಿಸಿ
ಸಂಸಾರದ  ಬಿರುಗಾಳಿಗೆ  ಸಿಕ್ಕಿರುವೆ  ರಕ್ಷಿಸಿ
ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ   ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ
ನೀವೆನ್ನ   ಕೈಪಿಡದೆರೆ ನಾ ನಿಮ್ಮ  ಬಿಡೆನು
ನಿಮ್ಮ  ನಿತ್ಯ  ಸೇವೆ  ನಿರಂತರ  ಧ್ಯಾನ
ಲಭಿಸಲಿ  ಉತ್ತಮೊತ್ತಮರೆ ಮಾನಸ  ಶಿರಸಾ ನಮಾಮಿ

ಜಯ  ಜಯಶ್ರೀ  ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ  ಗುರುವೇ  ನಮಾಮಿ  ಶ್ರೀ  ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ  ಗುರುವೇ
ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ  ನಮೋ  ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರರೆ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರರೆ  ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರರೆ
ಮಂತ್ರಾಲಯ  ಪ್ರಭುವೇ  ಮಂತ್ರಾಲಯ  ಪ್ರಭುವೇ  ಮಂತ್ರಾಲಯ  ಪ್ರಭುವೇ
ನಿಮ್ಮ  ಪಾದಗಳಿಗೆ ಶರಣು  ನಿಮ್ಮ  ಪಾದಗಳಿಗೆ  ಶರಣು

 

Yarindalu sukha shanthi labisalilla

Jaya jayashri raghavendra guruve namami shri raghavendra guruve
Namo namo namo namo raghavendrare raghavendrare raghavendrare
