And here is the lyrics for the famous song by Shri Bendre, which we used to hear on major radio channels, Yuga Yugadi Kaledaru:

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide

honge hUva tongalalli bhrungada sangIta kEli matte kELabarutide
bEvina kahi bALinalli hUvina nasugampu sUsi jIvakaLeya tarutide

varushakondu hosatu janma harushakondu hosatu neleyu akhila jIvajAtake
onde ondu janmadali onde bAlya onde haraya namagadashTE EtakO

niddegomme nitya maraNa edda sala navIna janana namage Eke

bAradOelE sanatkumAradEva elE sAhasi chiranjIva ninage lIle sEradO

yuga yugAdi kaLedarU yugAdi maraLi barutide
hosa varushake hosa harushava hosatu hosatu tarutide nammanashTe maretide

P.S: I am in Bangalore, India for work and was able to get the Uttaradi Mutta panchanga from 4th block complex.

Manmatha Nama Samvatsara

As I was browsing the net for the upcoming 2015-2016 calendar for Manmatha Nama Samvatsara, I found a great resource for all of you to find important dates for 2015. The calendar is english and is sufficient until we get the Panchanga for the new year 2015-2016.

Based on the calendar, Ugadi our new year is on March 21st 2015. If you want to make plans ahead for the many festivals coming in August and September 2015, this is a great resource.

Many thanks to the webadmin from http://www.gururaghavendra1.org/ for the calendar.

Please take a look.

ಬೇವು – ಬೆಲ್ಲ -Neem Flowers and Jaggery

Happy Ugadi – ಯುಗಾದಿ ಹಬ್ಬದ ಹಾರ್ದಿಕ ಶುಭಾಶಯಗಳು

An email I received from Ms. Bhavana Damle shows how ಬೇವು – ಬೆಲ್ಲ -Neem flowers and Jaggery are used during the Ugadi festival.

Bevu - Bella

ಮರೀಚಿ ಹಿಂಗ ಲವಣ ಅಜಮೋದಿಕ ಶರ್ಕರ |
ತಿಂತ್ರಿಣೀ ಮೇಲನಂ ಕೃತ್ವಾ ಭಕ್ಷಯೇತ್ ರೋಗನಾಶನಂ ||
marIchi hiMga lavaNa ajamOdika sharkara |
tiMtriNI mElanaM kRutvA bhakShayEt rOganAshanaM ||

marIchi= black pepper = ಕರಿ ಮೆಣಸು
hiMga = Asafoetida = ಇಂಗು
lavaNa = Salt = ಉಪ್ಪು
ajamOdika = ajwain seeds = ಓಮ ಕಾಳು
sharkara = sugar = ಸಕ್ಕರೆ
tiMtriNI = Tamarind = ಹುಣಸೆ

Bhavana Says:

Dear Meera,
We prepare bevu – bella on Ugadi mixing above items with tender neem leaves. But we add jaggery instead of sugar.We crush them together and eat on this auspicious day. This is very tasty also.
