KMS041. PILGRIMAGE TO KASI-PART 7

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

KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

Ramayana says that the place,
Prayag was full of dense forests,
Where Barathwaj Maharishi had
His Ashram amidst shady trees.

It was in his hut Rama and Sita
Stayed before going to Chitrakut
Mountain area on their next visit,
Which place Maha Swami visited.

A Mandap for Adi Sankara
Was built at Prayag center,
And he visited also that place,
By paying his high respects.

He went to Kasi from there
By walking all the way
To a distance of 130 KMs,
And on 03/10/1934, he reached.

Kasi is a sacred place for Hindus,
Who pay their visits to that place,
At least once in their life time,
As a religious duty for them.

On the town boundary of Kasi,
The then ruling King of Kasi,
With Madanmohan Malavya,
The great leader invited him.

On the way a lakh of devotees,
Followed the grand procession,
While he sat o’er on an elephant,
That carried him in the entire route.

He took his bath in Ganges,
A river of great importance,
To all the Hindus of the land,
As she came from Siva’s Head.

In the temple of Viswanatha,
He performed the day’s puja
To Sri Chandra Mouleeswarar
Along with the temple heads.

The same day he went to visit
The famous Hanuman Ghat,
Where the Adi Sankara’s idol
Was worshiped by one and all.
