45. If the Jangama is offered water

If bathed in water, It does not get wet.
If it is left uncared for, it does not wither away.
No meaning, there is no meaning
in mere Linga worship.
See, Kudala-sangama-deva,
if the Jangama is offered water,
your thirst is quenched.
Basavanna

Insight

Let me move away from ceremonial worship to caring for all, thus seeing Shiva in everything that moves.

Focus

Awareness is choiceless perception. Awareness is to be helpful. Awareness is love for all.

Vachana Text 45

Eredade naneyadu, maredade baadadu.
Hurulilla, hurulilla lingaarchane.
Noadayya, Koodala-sangama-deavaa,
Jangamakkeredade sthaavara naneyittu.
-- Basavanna

45. ಜಂಗಮಕ್ಕೆರೆದರೆ

ಎರೆದಡೆ ನನೆಯದು, ಮರೆದಡೆ ಬಾಡದು.
ಹುರುಳಿಲ್ಲ, ಹುರುಳಿಲ್ಲ, ಲಿಂಗಾರ್ಚನೆ.
ನೋಡಯ್ಯ, ಕೂಡಲ ಸಂಗಮದೇವಾ,
ಜಂಗಮಕ್ಕೆರೆದಡೆ ಸ್ಥಾವರ ನನೆಯಿತ್ತು.
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
