Sringeri Sarada Temple and prayers and songs praising the Goddess

Sringeri Sarada  Temple and  prayers  and songs praising  the Goddess

Compiled by

    Singeri  or Srunga Giri is believed to be the place where  Sage Rishya Sringa lived  . This is in the   confluence  of two  sister  rivers  Thunga and Bhadra (Both Tributaries   to the  Krishna river  ) . The  Sringeri Sarada  Peetam  the first Peetam established  by Adhi Sankara  is located here ,. The Sarada  devi temple  is one of the many   temples  of Sarada  peetam. Sage Sureswaracharya    was the first Peedathipathi   of this peetam. There   is a very interesting story  behind Sureswara  Charya    and the  Sarada  temple .
      Adhi Sankara   in his mission   to   propagate  the philosophy of Advaitham   toured  all over India ,  trying to convince   great scholars as   well as  people  about the greatness  of Advaitha. In this mission when he went  to the town of  Mahishmathi  , he  met  a very great scholar  in Karma Kanda  , Mandana Mishra .   When Adhi Sankara  and Mandana  MIshra   could not agree  with each other  , they decided   to debate  .They both agreed that  Ubhaya Bharathi   , the wife of Mandana  Mishra should be the judge as she   was considered   as the  incarnation of Goddess  Saraswathi herself. When the debate went on  without  showing any symptom of ending, Ubahaya Bharathi gave  a garland each to Adhi Sankara   and her husband Mandana Mishra  and said  if their garland fades first they   would be considered as defeated,. After some time Mandana Mishra’s garland began to fade .Ubhaya Bharathi said that   since husband and wife are one soul in two bodies  , she also should be defeated. Adhi Sankara agreed and later Ubhaya Bharathi was   defeated. Mandana Mishra took  SAnyana and was given the name of Sureswaracharya  . Then Adhi Sankara realizing that   Ubhaya Bharathi    was Goddess  Saraswathi herself,  requested her to follow him ,. She agreed but  put a condition that   Adhi Sankara should not look back at her any time  .When they reached  Srunga giri, Adhi Sankara  noticed that  a snake with an open hood was protecting a frog from rain there and also a tiger and a deer were roaming together  . It was at that  time that  he felt that  he was not hearing the    sound of Anklets  of Ubhaya Bharathi.   Since he looked back, Ubhaya Bharathi disappeared leaving  a Sandalwood statue of mother Sarada . Adhi Sankara drew a Sri Chakra  on a stone there  and  consecrated the idol there. Then the mother  appeared before him and told  him  that  she would be with the pontiffs and sages  of the Peetam (to be called  Sarada Peetam ) there.   Later Swami Bharathi Krishna Theertha and  Sri Vidyaranya     got built that temple in the  Kerala style with tiles and   A golden idol was substituted to the  Sandalwood idol of the temple  .  The Present temple in granite was built in the twentieth centuary and was consecrated  in the year 1916   by Sri Abinava  Vidhya Theertha .A golden chariot was deicated to   her in the   year 1999.
         Along with the temple of mother  Sharada , there are several great temples in the same  peeta, some of them in the same compound and some outside .   The biggest and  great looking is the  temple of Lord, who is consecrated here as  Vidhya Sankara.  Then there  is the temples of Thorana Ganapathi, Janardhana  , Vageeswari  , Balasubramanya  ,Malahanikareswara ( 10 km away   from  the temple where  there is a growing Ganesa  statue)  , Adhi Sankara . Sureswaracharya  , the guardian deities  of sringeri town like Kalabhairava  , Anjaneya, Durgamba   and Kalikamba,  Malayala Brahma ( a  Brahma Rakshas  who was a scholarly Brahmin who refused to teach  others and later   blessed by  Swami Vidyaranya)  and Sri KOdandaramaswami. Then there  is Chandramouleeswara Linga which was given by Adhi Sankara   to Sureswaracharya , which is worshipped by the Peetathipadhi  himself thrice a day even now.
   The temples are normally open  from 6 Am -2 PM   and 5.00PM to 9 PM. And almost year round there are festivals  in  these temples.Navarathri is celebrated   in a grand scale  in the Saradambha temple  besides several other   festivals.  Some of the festivals are “5 day Sankara Jayanthi falling on the Shukla Panchami in April-May, Vyasa Puja, Varalakshmi Puja, Sri Krishna Jayanthi, Vinayaka Chaturti, Sri Vamana Jayanthi, Sri Anantha Padamanabha Vrata, Sri Uma Maheswara Vrata  and Maha Shiva rathri ”
Food  during lunch hour  is served in the temple to all the visitors, students studying in the school run by the Mutt   as well as   to all senior citizens in living   in the Senior citizen township   maintained by the Mutt.   Feeding of Huge fishes in the  temple ghat of the THunga Bhadra   river   is done by the devotees.

Some of the great prayers   about this Goddess  are :-
1.Sharada Bhujanga prayathashtakam
(The octet to Sharada written in a meter with snake like movement)

Adhi Shankara Bhagawat Pada

Translated by


(Sharda is the goddess of the temple town of Sringeri. She is supposed to be an incarnation of Goddess Saraswathi.Adhishankara has established one of his Mutts in this town, which is in the shores of River Thunga.
This great stotra unlike the other stotras of Adhi Shankara is difficult to follow, though it is extremely musical. Many interpretations exist because of that. I have to a large extent followed the Tamil translation (Making changes wherever I did not agree) which appeared in Brahma Sandesam, April 2009 issue. People who disagree with the translation are requested to pardon this ignoramus.)

Suvakshoja kumbham , sudha poorna kumbhaam,

Prepared to shower her grace , she looks after those who do good,
And she has the form of ever glowing moon with reddish lips resembling a cherry,
And I pray that mother Sharada who is forever my mother.

Brimming with mercy in her glance, showing symbol of wisdom in her hands,
Always awakened by the art forms, always wearing ornaments,
And who is the wakeful great lady and living in the shores of auspicious river Thunga*,
And I pray that mother Sharada who is forever my mother.
* Sringeri temple is situated in the shores of Thunga and not Thunga Bhadra
and so I have taken one meaning of Bhadhra as auspicious.

Lalaamanga phaalaam lasad gana lolaam,

With braided hair parted at the middle showing hanging ornamental balls,
With playing glances of a deer and worshipped by the Devendra,
With nectar like smiling face and hair that attracts our mind,
And I pray that mother Sharada who is forever my mother.

She who rides on a deer, horse , lion and eagle,
She who rides on the swan, the bull and the elephant,
During the nine holy days and has a very peaceful form,

She who is as pretty as raging fire, she whose prettiness attracts the world,
She who moves around the lotus like mind of her devotees like a bee,
And she whose luster is increased by true prayer , song and dance,
