Ganapati Sastri's stray poem
« on: March 12, 2009, 11:44:13 AM »
On May 26, 1944, Bhagavan Ramana recollected and repeated a sloka
addressed to Him long ago, by Kavyakanta Ganapati Sastri, in a letter,
which makes references to Bhagavan's associates of those days.
It ran thus:

"To Him praised by Pazhani Swami who has cast off the trammels
of birth, to the bee that strolls in the lotus-heart of Gambhiram
Seshayya, to the doctor that has cured the slow-witted Krishnayya,
from the disease of phenomenal existence, to that son of the snake-adroned God Siva, appearing in the guise of a yati, I prostrate!"
