KMS049. FOREIGN WRITERS INTERVIEWS

KANCHI MAHA SWAMI

Sir Paul Dukes, an English Writer,
M. Philippe Lavastine, a French Writer,
They both had their interviews
With Maha Swami on spiritual topics.

English Writer:
“What is that endless one,
You go on searching for it?”

Maha Swami:
“As far as I’m concerned
I’m still searching for it.”

English Writer:
“What is your opinion
On this endless search?”

Maha Swami:
“If someone searches outside
There will be no end to it.
If he searches for it inside,
He can realize something.”

“This will also be endless
As what we search for
Is the one that has no end.”
Thus Maha Swami explained.

It gave the writer a surprise,
In his personal experience
With a great spiritual soul,
Who was searching for it still.

The second French writer
Came to India to know more
About the southern temples
And the government rules.

French Writer:
“I’m doing a practical research,
And so, I came here to search,
For the truth behind the temples,
And to know more about the rulers.”

Maha Swami:
“A King must keep his eyes,
On the rule of Dharma always,
While a common man wants
Water, food, shelter; nothing else.”

“If he gets his daily needs,
Following the spiritual paths
Dharma will prevail always
And a king must see to this.”

French Writer:
“What do you want to tell,
Foreigners to lead their life well,
Which I would like to carry
As your message this day.”

Maha Swami:
“Whatever action you take,
It should not harm, but make
Everyone’s life comfortable
And keep him more peaceful.”

“For that, the only way is,
To show love and affection
In each and every action,
Done with a good intention.”
