Sri Raghavendra Ashtotthara Shathanamavali

Yesterday, the 337th Aradhane (anniversary) of Sri Raghavendra Swamy concluded. Every year, in Shravana Masa Krishna Paksha, the aradhane is celebrated on the first, second and third day of the Paksha (fortnight). In 1671 A.D, Sri Raghavendra Swamy entered his brundavana alive on the second day of this Paksha. That ocassion is remembered through the Aradhane.

There are many stotras that have been composed in praise of this great Dvaita Saint. Sri Bichale Appannacharya was a great devotee of Sri Raghavendra Swamy and has composed numerous stotras. One such very famous work is the Raghavendra Ashtotthara Shathanamavali which contains 108 names (descriptions would probably be a better word) of Swamiji.

On the ocassion of the aradhane, I am uploading the Ashtotthara Shathanamavali, in Kannada script, to my mantras page. Feedback, corrections and comments are welcome!
