Poems composed on Mahaswamigal by a devotee in 1939 and 1961!

1) First screenshot --- மஹா பெரியவர் மீது தாத்தா இயற்றிய சித்திரக்கவி இது. Arvind Swaminathan's grandfather Shri Swaminatha Sharma had composed this poem on Kanchi Mahaperiyava sometime in the 1950s or 1960s.

2) Second one from the top --- Song composed by Shri Swaminatha Sharma on Mahaperiyava on the the occasion of Vyasa pooja in the year 1961, August 6th.

3) Last one --- Another poem composed by Shri Swaminatha Sharma on Swamigal on June 6th, 1939.

Shankara. How precious these are! And how beautiful they are to even look at!

So sorry that I am unable to translate them to English, for those of you who cannot read Tamil. Please bear with me on the poor quality of the pictures too.

Thanks a ton to Shri Mohan Ramiah for running this by me.
