Swamiji's simplicity and candour astounds me. Raghul credits the Swamiji as the person behind the landmark judgement in our constitutional law. Perhaps Mr. Raghul was somewhat thrown off by the Swamiji's statement that the case was prepared, argued and otherwise handled by eminent jurists. The Revered Swamiji certainly underplays his talents and skills. For instance, he just said that he loves to hear carnatic and hindustani music in his spare time!!! Actually, Swamiji is an accomplished vocalist. I bought a cassete during 1990 at Sringeri wherein Swamiji sings Saraswati and Sharada stuti including Sharada Bhujangam on one side and on the other gives a marvellous rendering of Shyamala Dandhakam. His music is indeed Divine. I have heard several musicians rendering these stutis. But none could come anywhere near Swamiji's rendering. His voice, his diction and rendering were just out of the world!!! I think the casette recording was done by Sangeetha. For the past 10 years, I have been searching the internet in vain to find a mention of his songs / bhajans / stotras / stutis etc. Nobody seem to know about this aspect of our beloved and reverred Swami ji. Even the Mutt's web page seem silent about this. In a world and time when even cheap upstarts upload their derisive talents and want to grab limelight, this sage does not even say that he is also an artist....Will somebody upload Swami ji's music?
