63. Clean it up

Is the Master of the house at home or not?
Grass at the door, dust in the house,
is the Master of the house at home or not?
The body filled with falsehood,
the mind filled with thoughts of pleasure,
is the Master of the mind present or not?
No, the Master is not present,
Kudala-sangama-deva, Shiva.
— Basavanna


I’ve allowed my mind to become a dust bin to hold garbage — desires and falsehood. I alone have to clean it up.


Shiva is the Master. Awareness is the Master. When awareness drifts, in the absence of the Master,all thoughts rush in. When awareness is present, thoughts go into hiding.

63. ಮನಸ್ಸೋ ಕಸದ ಬುಟ್ಟಿಯೋ?

ಮನೆಯೊಳಗೆ ಮನೆಯೊಡೆಯನಿದ್ದಾನೊ ಇಲ್ಲವೊ?
ಹೊಸ್ತಿಲಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲ್ಲು ಹುಟ್ಟಿ, ಮನೆಯೊಳಗೆ ರಜ ತುಂಬಿ,
ಮನೆಯೊಳಗೆ ಮನೆಯೊಡೆಯನಿದ್ದಾನೊ ಇಲ್ಲವೊ?
ತನುವಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಸಿ ತುಂಬಿ, ಮನದಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಷಯ ತುಂಬಿ,
ಮನದೊಳಗೆ ಮನದೊಡೆಯನಿದ್ದಾನೊ ಇಲ್ಲವೊ?
ಇಲ್ಲ, ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವ.
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
ಸಹಾಯ : (ಸಾಲಿನ ನಂಬರ್ ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ)
2. ರಜ = ಧೂಳು 4. ವಿಷಯ = ಭೋಗಿಸುವ ಆಸೆ
