KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

He next passed through Jabalpur,
Took bath in the Narmada River,
And highlighted the importance
Of all the seven sacred rivers.

There are seven rivers, Sindhu,
Ganges, Yamuna, Saraswathi,
Narmada, Godavari, Cauvery,
Worshiped as sacred rivers.

At the Allahabad junction,
All the three sacred rivers join,
Ganges, Yamuna, Saraswathi,
And he took bath in these rivers.

The Prayag Town is famous,
For Kumba Mela festivals,
Celebrated every twelve years,
At the junction of three rivers.

He mixed the sands brought
From the Rameswaram sea
In these three sacred rivers,
To mark the unity of Hindus.

The Allahabad University
Chancellor Shri Ganganathji,
Along with other devotees,
Invited him with due honors.

The devotees stood both sides
Shouting aloud ‘Guru Maharajki jai”
In addition to the sound of drums,
And the loud noise made by pipes.

The empty sandbox in silver,
He gave it to a Panda there,
As a token of his appreciation
For his services on that occasion.

The sacred Ganges water
Was bottled well and sent
To various parts of the country,
To show the world Hindus’ unity.

Special pujas, music festivals,
Debating Meets, attracted all
Pundits from different parts
Of the country to participate.

Maha Swami gave costly prizes,
As a token of his appreciation,
To all of them for their devotion,
In the field of art and Hindu religion.
