MADHWA BHANDU Calendar for MANMATHA Samvatsara

Hare Srinivasa,

Many readers have been asking for the soft copy of MADHWA BHANDU Tamil Calendar for Manmatha Samvatara. It seems that not many got the copy this year. Even I couldn’t get one though I am in Chennai. Sri G Mugundan has uploaded and shared the link in the larger interest. Thanks to Sri Mugundan for helping us out. Please click on the below image.

Also I came across another Tamil Panchanga for 2015-16 by Sri S Narasimharao, Bangalore. This too has many useful information which I think will benefit us in our anushtaana during the new year. Please click on the image below to view/download the same.

Hare Srinivasa,

MANMATHA Samvatsara

Panchanga Patana


Sri V Prabhanjanachar


Well, by now all of you are done with the New Year celebrations and the next important day is Sri Rama Navami. Also do you know, our great gurugalu Mantralaya Mahaprabhu Sri Raghavendra Swamy was born in a Manmatha Nama Samvatsara!! I am sure most of you would have made your visit to the nearest mutt on the Ugadi day evening for the auspicious Panchanga Shravana event. For those of you who missed it, here comes the You Tube Video link for Sri Vyasanakare Prabhanjanacharya’s Panchanga Patana. Please listen to the same.

Pushyarka Yoga in MANMATHA Samvatsara

Hare Srinivasa,

It is very well known to everyone that Sri Gururayaru is very compassionate and will bless us without demanding anything from us. No matter whenever we pray him, we will be granted solace, however, His humble disciple and devotee Sri Appannacharya mentions some particular days to invoke His special blessings. (Pls. refer to the verse “somasooryo parage cha pushya arka adi samagame” in Sri Raghavendra Stotra) These are the days where several auspicious moments confluence together. Hence there is a practice of chanting Sri Raghavendra Stotra for 108 times.

The combination of Pushya Nakshatra on Sunday is considered very auspicious. Chanting Sri RaghavEndra Guru Stotra “ashtOttara shata” i.e. 108 times gives vishesha phala to all individuals.

“SOmasooryOparAgEcha PushyArkAdi samAgamE “

Here is a list of such days in this Manmatha Samvatsara.

26-04-2015 Sunday    : Pushyarka Yoga

13-08-2015 Thursday : Guru Pushya Yoga

10-09-2015 Thursday : Guru Pushya Yoga

24-01-2016 Sunday    : Pushyarka Yoga

Hence request everyone to do parayana of this sacred and powerful Guru Stotra on the listed days and gain the blessing of Sri Raghavendra guruvantargata, Sree Bhaarati Ramana Mukhyapraanantargata, Sreeman Narayana.
