KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

Their conversation continues:-

He then asked Maha Swami
How to search for a Guru
And if he failed to get one
How best to proceed then?

PB: “ If I don’t succeed
In my attempt to get a Guru
Can I then approach you?”

MS: “I’m in charge of a Mutt.
And my work of managing it,
Will be so heavy for me there
I may not find any time to spare.”

“It is better you find out
A Guru who’s more fit
To teach you, in future,
All about our culture.”

PB: “It is really more difficult,
For those like me to find out,
A teacher anywhere here,
Myself being a foreigner.

MS: “There is truth in the world
That we should be able to find.”

PB: “Can you just send me then,
To such a teacher for me to learn.”

MS: “There are two teachers,
One living in a deep forest
Who’ll not allow foreigners,
Inside his ashram to meet.”

“Another one is at the hills
Of Tiruvannamalai place,
Who is Ramana Maharishi,
And he can help your needs.”

PB: “Please excuse me
For all the troubles I gave.
And give me now leave
To go back to my place.”
