KMS017. STAY AT UDAYARPALAYAM

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

KANCHI MAHA SWAMII

After one year stay at Pudukottai
And Chettinadu Maha Swami
Next moved to Udayarpalayam,
The town that was familiar to him.

There was a long connection,
Between Udayarpalayam,
And the Kumbakonam Mutt,
The branch of Kanchi Mutt.

The Kanchi Kamakshi Amman,
Or Bangaru Kamakshi Amman,
To be installed at Kumbakonam
Was just kept at Udayarpalayam.

One among the great Music Trinity,
The music composer Shyama Sastry,
Worshiped Her as his Goddess,
And composed on Her many songs.

The Zamindar of Udyarpalayam,
Gave Maha Swami a grand welcome,
And made all the best arrangements
For his stay there for fifteen days.

Also the Zamindar gave him
One baby elephant, two horses,
One camel and a few cows,
As his humble offerings to him.

For his noble act like this,
Maha Swami’s blessings
He received when he was
Facing a severe crisis.

There was no rain for years,
And the people shed tears,
By facing a terrible famine,
With no proper food then.

Maha Swami’s presence there
Brought adequate supply water
That came in the form of rains,
As a result of his blessings.

If there is one good man
Present in the country,
There comes the rain,
For his sake, in plenty.
