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.

Update: Rayara Brindavana Banner

Many call our Beloved Rayaru Brindavana a samadhi, it is not. Many call our Beloved Rayaru Brindavana a stone structure, it is not. Many call our Beloved Rayaru a God, he is not. Many call our Beloved Rayaru a magician, he is not.

To really know and understand the intricate details of the Brindavana and know what a great saint our Beloved Rayaru is, please take a look at the banner attached which is provided by SRSMUTT Mantralaya.

2018 Aaradhane Celebrations at Home

From the day of my accident, the one and only thing in my mind was will I be able to perform Aaradhane, will I be able to do our Beloved Rayaru seva, will I be able to walk. All my prayers were answered except for Rayaru giving me the ability to sit down. I am still unable to sit down, the leg and especially ankle swells a lot if I either walk, stand or even sit for a long time without raising my leg.

So, I used to sit on a chair and do pooje, My husband sat down. Since I know so many songs and there was no way I could sing them all everyday, I chose 5 songs for each day. Started with Sankalpa, Vishnu stotra, Lakshmi Stotra, Shree Yanthrodhara Stotra, followed by Rayaru Stotra and all other songs. In the night followed by Thogire Rayara, Swami Lali and Mangalam for Rayaru.

We started our seva from Sunday since that was when the Aaradhane celebrations was taking place in our Maryland mutta. On Sunday and Monday we visited the mutta, participated in all day celebrations. Will post pictures soon from the temple.

As always, there is an abundance of fruits, coconut and flowers here in USA. We brought all kinds of flowers and fruits for pooje. I decided to do 108 pradakshina namaskaras every day. We ( My Husband and I) planned to do seva for 5 days, however I couldn’t continue the 108 pradakshina namaskaras after 3 days.

On Monday, during the pooje, I was also asked to sing at the temple. For the very first time in my life I sang with a mic in a temple. I sang ” Raya Baro and Kori Kareve”. For someone who speaks at conferences and on big stages regularly, singing in a temple felt like a huge achievement like out of this world. I feel blessed.

It was indeed challenging to continue 108 pradakshinas and so I stopped after 3 days. I heard so many miracles, saw so many pictures from around the world, listened to so many songs, it was just unbelievable. I also met so many devotees of Rayaru at the temple and so many followers of this blog. Many came personally to me and talked, thanks a million.

Tell me how you performed seva for our Rayaru? What miracles did you hear? what miracles happened?

As promised pictures from seva at my place attached below.

Day 1 preparation.


Day 1 Pooje.

Day 3 Pooje and food

Day 4 pooje
