KANCHI MAHA SWAMI
Maha Swami stayed at Kanchi Mutt,
For about a month on a short visit,
To worship Lord Ekambareswarar,
Kamakshi Amman, Lord Varadharajar.

To arrange for the renovation
Of the Kanakshi Amman
Temple and he started it.
Generally, Kamakshi Amman
Is in different parts and names,
As Lalitha, Dhurga, Bhuvaneswari,

She gives darshan like this
To all the visiting devotees,
From all o’er the country,
Blessing all as a presiding deity.
Maha Swami said like this
To the assembled devotees
During one of his lectures,
Why one Devi has many names?
Forms and names may differ,
But all are only one to pray for
At any place chosen for visits,
Without counting by names.
