110. None other than me

No infatuation for the body, No pride in the mind.
No fear in the breath, no desire in the mind-stuff.
Indifference to the pleasure objects.
No movement of thought or feeling.
Bliss in awareness — when this is experienced,
there is no Saurashtra-Someshwara-Linga, Shiva,
other than me.
— Adayya


I begin with duality -- I’m the worshipper and Linga is the object of my worship. Gradually, with Guru’s grace, individuality is shred. And lo, there is freedom! Freedom from pride, fear, desire, and thoughts. Bliss in awareness.


No more is the feeling that I am separate from awareness. I am Awareness.

Vachana No. 105 to 113



Vachana Text 110

Tanuvinalli nirmoaha, manadalli nirahankaara,
praanadalli nirbhaya, chittadalli nirapeakshe,
vishayangalalli udaaseena, bhaavadalli digambara,
jnaanadalli paramaanandavedegonda balika
Sauraashtra Someashwaranemba Lingavu bearilla
-- Adayya

110. ಲಿಂಗವು ಬೇರಿಲ್ಲ

ತನುವಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಿರ್ಮೊಹ, ಮನದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿರಹಂಕಾರ,
ಪ್ರಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿರ್ಭಯ, ಚಿತ್ತದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿರಪೇಕ್ಷೆ,
ವಿಷಯಂಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಉದಾಸೀನ, ಭಾವದಲ್ಲಿ ದಿಗಂಬರ.
ಜ್ಞಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಪರಮಾನಂದವೆಡೆಗೊಂಡ ಬಳಿಕ
ಸೌರಾಷ್ಟ್ರ ಸೋಮೇಶ್ವರನೆಂಬ ಲಿಂಗವು ಬೇರಿಲ್ಲ ಕಾಣಿರೆ.
-- ಆದಯ್ಯ
