Guru Ragavendra Swami Stotram / Guru Stotram / Sri Poornabodha Stotram




In this post I have given Guru Ragavendra swamy stotram which is also called as Sri Poornabodha stotram. This stotram was composed by
Shri Appanacharya. Appanacharya has authored many shlokas on Guru Raghavendra. Few to mention are Guru Raghavendra Stotra, Guru Raghavendra Kavacha, Guru Raghavendra Manglasthaka, Guru Raghavendra Gadhya.Shri Appanacharya is the top devotee of our Guru Ragavendra swamy.Guru Raghavendra and Appanacharya spent time together near mantralayam called bikshalaya and this place is being visited by most of the devotees who travel to Mantralayam.
I found this stotra in the net and hence I am providing this here ( Note : I am just doing the messenger role). I am still trying to get the meaning of this stotra in tamil, however the english & kannada traslation is available in the below link

Audio file of our Guru Stotra can be found at

Background of this Guru Ragavendra Swamy Stotra :

Rayaru decided to enter the Brindavana in 1671 A.D.Friday and sent Appanacharya for Madhwa Sanchara away from Mantralaya. If Appanacharya would have been on that day he would have not allowed Rayaru to Enter Brindavana. So Guru Ragavendra Swamy sent Shri Appanacharya away from Mantralaya and immediately planned the Brindavana Pravesha and 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 in full spate, overflowing. Appanacharya never cared for this. He loved Guru Ragavendra swamy so much and decided to cross Tungabadra river and went on crying. As He knew Guru Ragavendra Swamy completely he started Gurustotra Sripurnabodha Guruteertha Payobdhipaara from JAPADAKATTE, 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:

YahaPathaet
StotramDivyamidamsadaNahiBhavaettasyaAsukhamKinchan
KimtvishtarthaSamruddhirevaKamalaNathaPrasadodayaat
KeertiDigviditaVibhutiratula..

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. It has come out fluently with Devotional ecstasy.This is the unforgettable contribution of Bichchali Appanacharya to all Guru Ragavendra Swamy devotees of this Universe.
