KANCHI MAHA SWAMI
The year 1947, was so important
To all the Indians to celebrate,
Their freedom from the British rule,
A great event noted as historical.
The same year the anniversary
Of Veda School was celebrated
In that Maha Swami then explained
How the Hinduism spread far and wide.
As he was patriotic to the country,
He was wearing hand spun clothes,
To follow the Gandhian principles,
Respecting the national importance..
A good message to the nation,
He sent on that happy occasion,
In appreciation of all the patriots,
Involved in the freedom struggles.
He praised Asoka, the emperor
Who practiced nonviolence,
For his Dharma Chakra found
In the Indian flags well designed.
When Mahatma Gandhi was killed
In the year 1948, he highly regretted
And sent his heartfelt condolences
For the loss thru’ all the newspapers.
He wrote in that news that he met,
Gandhiji during 1927 at Palakot,
And his devotion to Lord Rama,
Should lead him to rest in peace.
Even though he was a Sanyasi,
As a Head of the Mutt Kanchi,
He took interest in the people,
And in Indian Nation as well.
“All people should love God.
All people must love the Nation.
All people must learn Sanskrit.”
He repeatedly said these words
Indeed he was a great Soul,
Who was a living example
For people in the material world
To walk in the spiritual world.
