Durwaadi Dhwantaravaye Vaishnavendi varendave, Sri Raghavendra Guruve Namo Atyanta Dayaluve ||

Most people tell only the first line; most scholars infer that these two lines have to be said together to poorna phala as the sentence ends here.

Poojyaya Raghavendraya Sathya Dharma Rathayacha,Bhajataam Kalpavrikshaaya Namataam Kaamadhenave ||
Sri Raghavendrateertha Gurusarvabhoumaru is the Able Yati for Archana,Vandana and Aradhana -. Poojyaaya. Always indulged in the Aradhana of Sri Hari - SatyaDharmaRataayacha. Devotees who have
Surrendered fully, for them Rayaru is Kalpavruksha and Kamadhenu. So I here by offer my Sashtaanga Namaskara to this Great Sri Raghavendrateertharu, Mantralaya Rayaru.


Durwaadi Dhwantaravaye |
Vaishnavendi varendave ||
Sri Raghavendra Guruve |
Namo Atyanta Dayaluve ||

Durwaadi - Bad Philosophies causing darkness/ mithyavada etc.
Dhwantaravaye - You are like a sun
Vaishnavendi varendave - For Devotees of Sri Hari; you grant boonts (like a moon to Vishnu Devotees)
Sri Raghavendra Guruve -  O Guru Sri Raghavendra
Name Atyanta Dayaluve - O utmost merciful one, please accept my salutations 

You destroy wicked philosophies; like the effulgent sun removes darkness. you are like the moonlight for Sri Hari bhaktas. I salute you O most compassionate one, O Sri Raghavendra Guru !!!

Mookopi yathprasadena |

With whose blessings even a dumb can speak as eloquently as Sri Adi Sesha(Thousand Headed Serpent on which Lord Sri Vishnu rests) and with whose blessings a pauper turns into a rich, to them, Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamygalu, I'm surrendering my self !!!   

 * With Sri Raghavendra's grace one can become a Sudha Pandita .

chant SrI rAgavEMdrAya namaH



kRushNA kRushNA ennalu kaShTavoMdiShTilla kRushNA enabAradE

(if we utterkRushNA kRushNA , there is not an ounce of kaShTa
(miseries), why dont you utter the name of kRushNa)



rAma nAma bhajisidavage uMTe bhavada baMdhana

(is there bondage of rebirth for the one who sings the name of rAma)



In this manner, there are ample number of sayings in
shAstrAs ,purANAs,mythologies and haridAsa’s compositions which
explains the grandeur of chanting the name of Supreme Lord.

Similarly haridasaru glorify the same by saying “nInyakO ninna
haMginyAko ninna nAmada balavoMdiddare sAkO”



SrI rAghavEMdra gurugalu is the world famous great personality who has
chanted such name of sri hari in every birth.Just like the name of SrI
rAma, chanting “SrI rAghavEMdrAya namaH” will fulfill all the wishes
of his devotees.



SrI rAghavEMdrAya namaH ityaShTAkShara maMtrataH |

japitAdbhAvitAnnityaM iShTArthasyurnasaMshayaH ||



SrI Appannacharya proclaims that by either chanting the 8 letters of
“SrI rAghavEMdrAya namaH” or by meditating upon it, all the wishes
will be fulfilled, there is no doubt about it.



“rA” enne rAshi dOShagaLa dahisuva

“Ga” enne Gana j~jAna bhakutiyanIva

“vEM” enne vEgadi janana maraNa dUra

“dra” enne draviNArtha shRuti pAdyana kAMba



he will burn heaps of our faults when we say “rA”

he will grant us with immense devotion filled with knowledge when we
say “Ga”

saying “vEM” drives away the cycle of birth and death

and by telling “dra” one will get to see the draviNArtha shRuti pAdya



In this manner Sri Gopaladasaru has indicated that , every letter in
Sri Gururaja’s name fulfills wishes. Along the same lines, Sri
JagannathadAsaru says:-



gururAjashTAKSharaM syAt mahApAtakanAshanam |

EkaikamakSharaM cAtra sarvakAmyArtha siddhidam ||



Which means the 8 letters of “SrI rAghavEMdrAya namaH” destroys all
the mighty sins, every letter in this name, will result in fulfillment
of all the wishes, JagannAtha dasaru also composed a separate work
named “shrI rAghavEMdra aShTAkShara stOtra” which describes the
results of chanting each letter of SrI rAyara name as below :



chanting of “ra” relieves one from all the diseases,

Chanting of “Ga” enhances longevity, glory and strength of the person

chanting of “va” will result in gain of worldy riches

chanting of “dra” will drive the sins of person chanting

he who chants “ya” will not be troubled by yama

chanting “na” will bestow higher positions

by chanting “ma” one will be blessed with riches equalling that of
dEvEMdras.



rAghavEMdraneMba rUpa tAneyAgi |

rAghavEMdraneMba nAma irisikondu |

rAghavEMdrarinnu mADidaMta puNya.....



above words of Sri GOpaladAsaru has a very deep hidden meaning.



No entity in this creation is independent. MukhyaprANadEvaru, and the
Supreme Lord within him resides in each one of the souls and takes
care of their business. In the same manner, MukyaprANa devaru and SrI
rAmachandra in him resides in rAyaru and fulfills the wishes of
devotees. This fact is proven in shAstras. gurugala name “rAghavEMdra”
encompasses the meanings of these shAstras.



Chanting ‘rAghavEMdra” actually results in chanting the names of SrI
rAma,hanuma and Sri guru rAghavEMdra. if we describe the word
rAghavEMdra as the most revered person in raghuvaMsha then SrI rAma is
“rAghavEMdra” , if we describe the same word as he who has Sri rAma as
his lord, then hanuma is rAghavEMdra , and if describe him as the one
who cleanses the sins of his devotees and protects them, then we are
chanting the most renowned lord of mantrAyala Sri rAghavEMdra. Words
of dAsaru which incldes such descriptive meanings are



Itanoliyalu prANanolivanu |

vAtanoliyalu hariyu oliva |

Ita sakalake mukhya kAraNanAgi irutippa ||



Meditating upon the name of SrI guru rAghavEMDra swAmigalu who is the
most benevolent and who has been blessed with special grace of Sri
hari and vAyu , is like kalpavRukSha and kAmadhEnu to the devotees of
guru which fulfills all their wishes.

Let all of us be receivers of rAyara blessings by chanting this
mantra.
