How to Remember Radha Govinad
Welcome to Tirupati Darshan
There are several ways to serve the Lord however the most important among them is
remembrance of his names. Chanting his names is remembrance. When it is recited aloud, it
becomes kirtanam. Both are acceptable, but what is important in divine service is dedicating
everything to the lord with the feeling that whatever one has in life is due to his abundant grace.
One’s daily routine should begin with remembrance of god, you must get even as the lord is
Kausalya supraja rama
Purva sandhya pravartate
Kartavyam daiva mahnikam.
(Oh Sri Ramachandra, the son of kausalya, it is day-break. You woke up and perform morning
Everyday we must think of Sri Hari in whatever work we perform, see him in every person we
meet and make our whole life filled with him.
Bhumjanah paryatan piban
Chinta mano hrshikesam
While you sit, look, stand, eat and drink and roam, think of Hrishikesa and all world is being
pervaded by him. Srinivasa must always be looked upon as the abode of Sri. That is we must
always think of the goddess, also as she is ever abides inn his bosom.
Isanam jagatosya venkatapater
Vishnoh param preyasim
Padmalankrta pani pallavayugam
Vatsalyadi gunojjvalam bhagavatim
O Lakshmi! Thou art the queen of the universe and its ordainer, thou art the most beloved of
Vishnu, the lord venkatachala. Thou dost fondly cherish to make his bosom thy eternal abode.
Thou dost forester and intensify his patience, tolerance and forgiveness. How grateful dost thou
look in the steady posture seated on a full-blown lotus, with thy slender arms, like tender shoots,
holding lotuses as ornaments in both thy palms! Thou dost beam forth with thy loving concern
and considerate solicitousness other glorious qualities. Salutations to thee, O spouse divine and
mother of the universe!
Remembering srinivasa always means to think of him in all situations, whether you are happy or
When you are taking food, do it with a feeling that the lord is accepting it.
Aham vaisvanaro bhutva
Praninam deha masritah
(Become the fire of life in the bodies of living creatures and mingling with the upward and
downward breaths, I digest the four kinds of food)
Whether one is pure or impure, one should always think of the lord.
Apavitrah pavitro vah
Yah smaret pundarikaksham
(Whatever conditions one is in, one who meditates on srinivasa becomes pure)
Ultimately even a sick person should think of Sri Hari while taking medicines.
Sarire jarjari bhute
Aushadham jahnavi toyam
Vaidyo narayano harih.
(The ganga water is the excellent medicine for the sickly, decrepit body. Lord Sriman Narayana is
the supreme physician). According to the Sages, we must pray to Govinda before going to sleep
to avoid nightmares
Achyutam kesavam visnum
Harim somam janardhanam
Hamsam narayanam krishnam
While going on a journey, omens are seen. But the moment we think of Sri Hari. Whatever may
be the omens, the success is ours. The divine weapons of the lord ensure our victory.
Vanamali gadi sarngi
Sankhi chakricha nandaki
Sriman narayano vishuh
There is no defeat for those in whose hearts janardana dwells.
Sri Govinda is the embodiment of all auspiciousness. Everything goes well always when he is
Mangalam bhogavan Vishnu
Besides, Sri Hari who abides at all places is the same. Everywhere he protects us.
Jale rakshatu varahah sthale rakshatu vamanam
Atavyam narasimhasca sarvatah patu kesavah.
As varahasvami in the water (just as rescuing the earth), as vamana on earth (because he
overruns the three worlds), as Narasimha in the forest (just as the lion in the forest) kesava (who
is all pervading) saves us all. Therefore, we should offer prayers to him thus.
Vina venkatesam na natho nanathah
Sada venkatesam smarami smarami
Hare venkatesam prasida prasida
Priyam venkatesam prayaccha prayaccha
(O lord! We do not have any other refuge but you. We always meditate on you, grant us your
This kind of service to the lord is called sarangati. When there are so many gods, in what form
Srinivasa should be worshipped? To this question, Sri Ramanuja replies thus.
Akhilabhuvana janmasthema bhangadilile
Vinata vividha bhuta vrata rakshaika diksh
Srutisirasi vidipte brahmanisrinivase
Bhavatu mama parasmin semushibhakti rupa.
May my devotion to Lord Srinivasa who is the substratum (source) of creation and dissolution in
the entire universe, who is committed to protect all the beings, who is the embodiment of the
Vedic principles, the supreme brahan reach its culmination
The bhagavatam also explains the concept of Sri hari in a similar manner. All the beings in the
universe human, animals and birds meditate on this highest principle.
Evvaniche janimchu jaga
Mevvani iopalanunda linamai
Jevvadavadi Madhya layudeppudu
Devvadu vani natmabhavu
Nisvarunne saranambu vedadas.
Surrender unto that god who creates, sustains and dissolves and who is beyond birth and death!
Ajnanina maya doshan aseshan vihitan hare
Oh lord! I have committed innumerable sins out of ignorance. O merciful lord of seshasaila forgive
my sins and make me pure.
This is not all. Dedicating all our thoughts to the lord, we must seek his grace. The acharyas call it
Na mama sripate reve
Tyatmanam nikshipet budhah.
(Lord! the responsibility of my protection and the fruit of my protection are not for me. I surrender
all unto you).
Our anger and passion will be destroyed when we serve the lord thus. Mind becomes calm and
equipoise. We develop patience and forbearance.
Chetulavanga sivuni pujimpadeni
Noru novvanga harikiri maduvadeni,
Dayayu satyambu lonuga dalapadeni
Kaluganetiki tallulakadupu chetu.
(Worship Siva ! Praise Hari. This will help to cultivate noble qualities like compassion, truth, purity
Srinivasa is the ideal God for such noble people. A bee whichever way it turns, acquires the
essential character of an insect. Similarly a bhagavata (devotee) imbibes the qualities of God. At
that time he experiences that everything in the world is pervaded by Vishnu.
Vasanadvasu devasya vasitam te jagat trayam
sarvabhutanivaso si vasudeva namostu te.
(As he abides everthing he becomes vasudeva. He shines in all beings)
Therefore, we praise Srinivasa chanting vasudevaya namah and narayanaya namah.
Karacharanakritam va kayajam karmajam va
Sravananayanajam va manasam vaparadham
Vidita manditam va sarvametat kshamasva
Jaya jaya karunabde he prabho srinivasa!
(O lord! Srinivasa, kindly forgive me for the sins committed knowingly and unknowingly through
my senses of knowledge and senses of action Grant me salvation. Hail victory to thee!
Bhaja govindam bhaja govindam
Govindam bhaja mudamate
Samprapte sannihite kale
Nahi nahi rakshati dukrinkarane.
Worship Govinda. Worship Govinda
Worship Govinda, O foolish one
Rules of Grammar are of no avail
Once the hour of death draws nigh.
Sankara bhagavatpada thus exhorted us annamacharya who exultantly praises lord srinivasa
Sarvopayamula jagati nakitade
Urvidharudu purushottamu ditade
Sakalagangadi tirtha snanaphalamulivi
Swamipushkarini jalame naku
Sakalapunyakshetra avasayatra livi
The means for everything in this world, to me is the supporter of the entire universe the supreme
person, is he –A holy bath in the swami pushkarini is like a bath in the ganga and other sacred
rivers. A trip on the Venkatachala is like a pilgrimage to sacred places). Talapu gala
yogambulandu sri vaishnavula tagala samvasa sahayogambu
(Among the desirable yogas is associated with sri vaishnavas)
Alaruna sampadalu itani pattappurani
Alarmelu manga kadakanti choopu.
(An ever growing wealth, of mine is his reigning queen,(an ever growing alarmelumangas kindly
Chelagi itu devata prarthanimtayu naku
Sri Venkateswaruni saranagati
(Performance of saranagati to sri venkateswara for me is worship of all devas.)
