I love listening to Bhagyada Lakshmi Baramma. It is a Kannada Composition by Purandara Dasa. Sung in praise of Goddess Lakshmi.... the bestow-er of prosperity and happiness.
The song is so full of love and devotion. He invites Lakshmi into his house right on time for the Friday Puja, describing ...
her dainty steps, the tinkling sound of her anklets, of bangles twirling on her wrists, of her mesmerizing lotus eyes, the auspicious kumkum mark on her forehead and the overflowing stream of gold and bliss she brings to homes she visits.
And he most wonderfully describes her as Venkataramanana Binkada Rani – the elegant and proud consort of sri Venkataramana
There are two versions of the song. The Hindustani version rendered by Pandit Bhimsen Joshi
And the Carnatik version by Smt MS Subbulakshmi
But I love it most when achu my daughter sings the song…simple and no frills!
Today our little grand daughter Sanvi completes one month. Sanvi is born on friday and is a bundle of joy.
I have tried to depict bhagyada lakshmi baramma on paper.
