Just before going to “What is Raghavendra Name Meaning | Which God name is Raghavendra? | What is the spelling of Raghvendra? | What is the other name of Raghavendra?“, let us know a brief, basic and very important information.

Let us start by taking his name: श्री राघवेन्द्राय नमः / ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರಾಯ ನಮಃ / śrī rāghavēndrāya namaḥ / Sri Raghavendraya Namah.

Now, let us know the inner meaning of the name ‘राघवेंद्र / ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ / Raghavendra’ and also the greatness of Sri Raghavendra Swamy.

रा / ರಾ / Ra = This means Bhagavan Lord Sri Rama, Bhagavan Lord Sri Narayana’s ‘Narayana Ashtakshari’ mantra, that is, “Om Namo Naaraayanaaya” also this means Lord Sri Hanuman. (But always remember – Lord Sri Rama is different and Lord Sri Hanuman is different.)

Let us understand how the Hanuman name is associated with the name of Bhagavan Sri Rama name:

यत्र यत्र रघुनाथ कीर्तनं तत्र तत्र कृतमस्तकाञ्जलिम् |
भाष्पवारि परिपूर्ण लोचनं मारुतिं नमत राक्षसान्तकम् ||

ಯತ್ರ ಯತ್ರ ರಘುನಾಥ ಕೀರ್ತನಂ ತತ್ರ ತತ್ರ ಕೃತಮಸ್ತಕಾಂಜಲಿಂ |
ಭಾಷ್ಪವಾರಿ ಪರಿಪೂರ್ಣ ಲೋಚನಂ ಮಾರುತಿಂ ನಮತ ರಾಕ್ಷಸಾಂತಕಂ ||

yatra yatra raghunātha kīrtanaṁ tatra tatra kr̥tamastakān̄jaliṁ |
bhāṣpavāri paripūrṇa lōcanaṁ mārutiṁ namata rākṣasāntakaṁ ||

Meaning: Wherever Lord Sri Raghunath’s (Lord Sri Rama) sankirtana (Divinely singing the greatness of Bhagavan Sri Rama) takes place with joyous tears is his (devotee) eyes with folded hands over his (devotee) head.

At that each and every place the terror to Rakshasas (Demons) is always present. Thus we should always do namaste (Divine salutations) to our beloved and Sri Rama bhakta’s greatest devotee hanuman.

A big divine thing we should know that, Sri Raghavendra Swamy before entering into Brindavana had performed divine penance for 12 meditating upon Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman (five face Hanuman).

Raghavendra name meaning is as given below:

अघ / ಅಘ / agha = This means evil, suffering, sin, grief etc. वें / ವೆಂ / ven = This means ‘ahankara’ (Ego / Sin). Even the first letter of Lord Sri Venkateswara (Balaji) has the same meaning. द्र / ದ್ರ / dra = Someone who dispel the evil from us.

Thus the full meaning of the name ‘Raghavendra’ is, He (Sri Raghavendra Swamy) is so great and divine that, He (Sri Raghavendra Swamy) has the capability to end all the evil, suffering, sin, grief etc. from us and also He (Sri Raghavendra Swamy) is someone who has all the qualities of reducing our Ego / Sins.

(This could happen only if we have full faith and devotion towards Guru Sri Raghavendra Swamy, Lord Sri Hanuman and Lord Sri Rama, otherwise nothings helps you.)

Thus, by chanting the divine name of Sri Raghavendra Swamy with full faith and devotion, we will get all the benefits of reciting the Divine names of both Lord Sri Rama (Also, Lord Sri Venkateswara) and Lord Sri Hanuman who are present in Sri Raghavendra Swamy (Also known as Sri Rayaru) as antaryami.

Another meaning of the name Raghavendra: Raghavendra is the original name of Lord Sri Rama (Vishnu / Narayana).

Lord Sri Rama is the center of attraction for the whole of the Suryavamsha (Suryavansh / Solar Dynasty) family, that is, the family of Raja Ikshvaku, Raja Raghu, Raja Mandhata, Raja Satya Harishchandra, Raja Sagara, Raja Dileepa, Raja Bhagiratha, Raja Ambarisha, Raja Dasharatha, etc.

Here Raghavendra = Raagha (राघ) + Vendra (वेंद्र) = Raghu Vamsha (Vansh / Family) + Indra.

Thus the whole meaning of the name Raghavendra is, He (Lord Sri Rama / Raghavendra) is someone who is the center of attraction / head / most valuable / King etc. of the Raghu family.

Lord Sri Rama / Raghavendra is like the Indra (Not the Indra Deva) of the Raghu family. Here Indra means not the Indra Deva, but a great parama-purusha (God) / most attractive personality / most valuable / head / King etc.
