80th Anniversary – Shri Raghavendra Swamy Matha, Seetapati Agrahara- Bangalore

Shri Raghavendra Swamy Matha at Seetapati Agrahara turns 80 years old. We visited this many times almost 20 years back when I stayed in Bangalore. We also performed many functions here during my stay.

I just saw these amazing pictures of the celebration, and Shri Mantralaya Swamy visiting and celebrating this occasion. Have a look.

ಒಂದೇ ಮನದಲಿ ಭಜಿಸು ವಾಗ್ದೇವಿಯ ||ಪ||

ಇಂದು ಮತಿ ಕೊಡುವಳು ಶ್ರೀಹರಿಯ ಧ್ಯಾನದಲಿ ||ಅ ಪ|| ಹಿಂದೆ ಪ್ರಹ್ಲಾದನು ಕಮಲಜನ ಸತಿಗೆರಗಿ ನಿಂದು ಆರಾಧಿಸಲು ಹರಿವಿಶ್ವಮಯನೆಂದು |

ಬಂದು ವಿಘ್ನವ ಕಳೆದು ಭಾವಶುದ್ಧಿಯನ್ನಿತ್ತು | ಹೊಂದಿಸಿದಳಾಗ ಶ್ರೀಹರಿಯ ಚರಣದಲ್ಲಿ ||೧||

ಅಂದು ದಶಮುಖನನುಜ ವಂದಿಸದೆ ವಾಣಿಯನು |

ಬಂದು ತಪವನು ಗೈಯೆ ಬಹುಕಾಲಕೆ |

ಅಂದದಿಂದಾಗಮೆಚ್ಚಿ ವರವಧಿಕ ಬೇಡೆನಲು |

ನಿಂದು ಜಿಹ್ವೆಯಲಿ ನಿದ್ರೆಯ ಬೇಡಿಸಿದಳು ||೨||

ಅರಿತು ಭಜಿಸಲು ಬಿಡದೆ ಅಜನರಸಿಯ ನಿತ್ಯ ಉರುತರ ವಾಕ್ ಶುದ್ಧಿಯನ್ನಿತ್ತು |

ನಿರುತ ಶ್ರೀಪುರಂದರವಿಠಲನ ಸೇವೆಯೊಳು | ಪರತತ್ತ್ವವಾದ ಕಥಾಮೃತವನುಣಿಸುವಳು ||೩||

 

 

ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ – Ashada Masa – June 28th – July 26th 2014

ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ or Ashada Masa starts June 28th and ends on July 26th 2014 in Jaya Nama Samvatsara – ಜಯ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ
. This entire month is considered inauspicious. Newly wed couple are not allowed to stay in the same house. And in some families I have also seen that Mother-in-Law and Daughter-in-law don’t stay in the same house as well. No idea who or how these beliefs came into existence.

During this month, there are no marriages, upanayanas, or any good deeds performed. However, it is during this month that the Chaturmasa Starts, and the last day of ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ or Ashada Masa is Bhimana Amavasya.More about this festival later in the month.

Some dates in ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ – Ashada Masa:

  • July 7th – Chaturmasa Begins
  • July 8th – Ekadashi
  • July 12th – Poornima – Hunnime
  • July 22nd – Ekadashi
  • July 26th – Amavasya

Stay tuned for our most auspicious month – ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸ  or Shravana Masa which starts from July 27th – August 25th 2014.

 

Evaporated MilkyWay ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer

I have already given two variations I use to prepare . The first one is the traditional one, and the second my invention.

Can you guess how this 3 rd option if different from the first two? Did you read the title? Any guess?

You can see the two options posted earlier here in the link below:

Evaporated Milky Way ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli
  • 2 Cups 2% Milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup Sugar or to Taste
  • Unflavored Oil – Or  Ghee
  • 3-4 Cloves, 10-15 sliced Almonds, raisins and crushed cardamom Powder.

Method:

  • Fry the cloves, raisins, Almonds and ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli in Oil/Ghee until it turns golden brown.  I fry all of them together.
  • Now, add 1/2 cup milk and let the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli cook until soft.
  • When the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli is completely cooked, add sugar and the 1 can evaporated milk.
  • Let it boil until all the sugar is dissolved.
  • Finally, add crushed cardamom powder.

The evaporated milk gave the ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer completely new taste the first time I prepared. Everyone in my family just loved it. I have been preparing it this Way for many months now. If you like experimenting with food, give it a try. It tastes heavenly.

P.S: This serves almost 20 people. I prepared ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer this weekend for my Daughter Sneha’s graduation party. Everyone asked for the recipe and wanted to know the secret. And now the secret of Meera’s amazing delicious ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer is out. 🙂
