KMS042. PILGRIMAGE TO KASI-PART 8

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

KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

Maha Swami advised Kasi students,
About devotion to Guru, character,
Morality, self control, patience,
And love for God, for their guidance.

At Hanuman Ghat only he stayed,
And from that holy place he visited,
All places of religious importance,
Until he left finally from Kasi.

Pundits from Haridwar came to see him,
And he gave Kashmir shawls to them,
After they displayed their talents
Before him in the religious scriptures.

King of Kasi gave the picture
Of Sripadarayanar from palace,
And Kanch Mutt gave the picture
Of Adi Sankara to their school.

King of Kasi read in Sanskrit
The welcome address on his part,
And thereafter. he did install
Maha Swami’s photo in the school.

On 09/03/1935, the people of Kasi
And its leading personalities
They gave him in the Town Hall,
A special honor before he left Kasi.

On that occasion, he advised them
To undertake charitable duties,
For the welfare of all people,
By the Kasi Viswanath’s grace.

The main local Pundits at Kasi
After detailed study of old records,
Gave in writing that Kanchi Mutt
Was really found by Adi Sankara.

Like this, pundits from Bengal
Came to the same conclusion,
That Adi Sankara himself opened
Kanchi Mutt, what past records said.

To visit Bengal they invited him,
And Maha Swami promised them,
That he would be coming there
Surely in continuation of his tour.
