Guru Raghavendra sthothram/shri poorna bodha

Raghavendra theertharu decided to enter the Brindavana in 1671 A.D.Friday and sent Appanacharya for Madhwa Sanchara away from Mantralaya. He asked Diwan Venkanna to make all the arrangements. Appanacharya somehow came to know the news and decided to go to Mantralaya. But the river Tungbhadra was flooded and overflowing. Appanacharya never worried about this. He loved Guru Ragavendra swamy so much and decided to cross Tungabadra river. As He knew Guru Ragavendra Swamy completely he started Guru stotra Sripurnabodha Guruteertha Payobdhipaara.  Tungabadra river paved the way, by the time Appanacharya reached Mantralaya the last stone of the Brindavana was placed at the Brindavana. His Stotra immediately stopped after:

Stotram Divyamidamsada Nahi BhavaettasyaA sukhamKinchan

Could not speak anything more. Guru Ragavendra Swamy sitting in the`Brindavana has listened the Gurustotra fully, and completed the Stotra by saying SAAKSHIHAYASTOTRAHI from the Brindavana. At that time Rayaru was Chanting Hayagreeva Mantra, said Hayagreeva Roopi Sri Hari is the witness for all this what has been told in the Gurustotra.This shows the amount of affection Guru Ragavendra Swamy has towards Appanacharya. Appanacharya composed this Stotra Gurustotra on the day of Ragavendra Swamy brindavana pravesha. This is the unforgettable contribution of Bichchali Appanacharya to all Guru Ragavendra Swamy devotees of this Universe.

The complete sthothram as follows:

raghavendra-stotram(Kannada)

Sri poorna bodha guru theertha payobdhi para,
Kamari maksha vishamaksha sira sprusanthi,
Poorvotharamitha tharanga charath suhamsa,
Devali sevitha parangri ugra payoia lagna

Jeevesa bedha guna poorthi jagath susathwa,

Vignana vag deha supata vadhin,
Dathwa sarerothdha samastha doshan,
Hathwa sa no avyadh Guru Raghavendra

Yad padodhaka sanchaya sura nadhi mukhya paga sadhitha,
Asankhya anuthama punya sankha vilasad prakhata punyavaha,
Dus thapa thraya nasano bhuvi maha vandhyaya suputhra pradho,
Vyanga swanga samrudhidho graha maha papa hastham sraye

Yad pada kanja rajasa parii bhooshithanga,
Yad pad padma Madhu payitha manasa ye
Yad pada padma parikeerthana jeernavacha,
Thad darshanam duritha kanana davamrutham

Prathivadi jaya swantha bhedha china dharo guru,
Sarva vidha pranenenyo Raghavendranna vidhyathe

Aparokshi krutha shreesa samupekshitha bhavaja,
Apekshitha pradhat anyo raghavendranna vidhyathe

Daya dakhinya vairagya, vak patava mukhangitha,
Shapanugraha sakthanyo raghavendranna vidhyathe.

Agnana vismrithi bhranthi samashyapasmriti kshaya,
Thanthra kampa vacha kountya mukha ye chendriyongava,
Doshasthe nasa mayanthi Raghavendra prasadatha

“Om Sri Raghavendraya nama” ihyashtakshara manthratha,
Japithad bhanga vidhath nithyam, ishatha syur na samsaya

Hanthu na kayajan doshan Athmameeya samud bhavan,

Ithi kala thraye nithyam prarthaanaam ya karothi sa,
Iha muthraptha sarveshto modathe nathra samsaya

Aagamya mahima loke Raghavendro maha yasa,

Sarvabheeshata sidhyartha namaskaram karomyaham,
Thava sankeethanam Veda shasthrartha phala sidhaye

Samsare aksha sagare prakrthitho agahade dusthare,

Nana vibhrama drubhrame amitha bhayasthomadhi phenothkate,
Dukhothkrushte vishe samudhara guro maam magna roopam sada

Bootha pretha pisachadhi peeda thasya na jayathe

Yethad stotram samucharya guror vrundavananthike,
Deepa samyojana jnanam puthra labho bhaved druvam

Paravadhi jayo diva jnana bhakthya yadhi vardhanam,
Sarvabhishta pravrudhisyannathra karya vicharana

Raja chora maha vyagra sarpa nakradhi peedanam,
Na jayathe asya stotrasya prabhavannathra samsaya

Yo bhkthya guru raghavedra charana dwandham smaran. ya padeth,
Stotram divyamidham sada nahi bhaved thasya asukham kinchna

Kim thwishtartha samrudhireva kamala nadha prasadhodhayath,

Krutham storamidham punyam srimad appanna aabhidai.

Ithi Sri Appanna virachitham Sri Raghavendra stotram sampoornam.
Bharathi ramana mukhya pranathargatha Sri Krishnarpanamasthu.
