KMS038. PILGRIMAGE TO KASI-PART 4

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

KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

After Hyderabad one had to cross
Several mountains and forests,
So, Maha Swami left that place,
With a few of his followers.

His carts, horse, elephant,
Camel, and a few servants
Remained in Andhra Pradesh
Till his return after four years.

He took bath on the way,
In Godavari River one day,
And went to Pendalwada
In the Madhya Pradesh.

There he gave lectures
On Adi Sankara’s works,
Before the local people,
Who praised him well.

Also Pundits from Maharashtra
Came and attended these lectures,
And he gave them all good food
With his blessings in the end.

From there he went to Nagpur,
Where lived many Pundits
Speaking Telugu, Tamil, Marathi,
Without any personal differences.

They took him into the Town
All the way in procession
Reciting all Veda Mantras
Sounding well in all the ears.

He spoke in different languages,
On various religious subjects,
That attracted many people
Who followed his speech well.

He accepted their offerings
In a spirit of more kindness
Towards their earnestness
In serving his daily needs.

He also gave Kashmir shawls
In appreciation of their recitals
From various ancient scriptures,
To keep alive those past ones.
