KANCHI MAHA SWAMI
It was a big plan of Maha Swami,
To go all the way, by walk, to Kasi,
That would take minimum six months,
Normally, for anyone to reach that place.
An advance party went to find out
Safe route that was very convenient
And the religious places on the way,
Where he would prefer to stay.
All the devotees staying at Kasi
And also the Maharaja of Kasi
After hearing this happy news
They started counting the days.
At Andhra Pradesh, he first stayed,
In a small village, thinly populated,
And the Mutt’s Manager was afraid
How to find them all proper food?
Maha Swami, however, was sure,
That Goddess Kamashi was there,
Who served every living creature,
Adequate food and proper shelter.
What a wonder, it so happened
Thousands of people attended,
From near and far away places,
To pay him their due respects.
Maha Swami then told his men
That he knew well the divine
Actions of Goddess Kamashi,
To show them all Her mercy.
The devotees who came there
Donated coins made of silver.
What a wonder, the heap of coins,
Solved the Mutt team’s problems.
The team Manager then said
Never before it had happened
That in the Mutt’s past history
He had seen like this any day.
He was surprised at the miracle
Just happened before them all,
But the great Maha Swami was calm
As his faith on Kamakshi helped them.
