115. Not without His mercy

One may realize anything and everything.
But one cannot realize oneself
without Kudala-sangama-deva’s grace.
— Basavanna

Insight

In life one can achieve anything with one’s effort and self-belief. But how do I understand my true nature – this understanding is beyond intellect and effort.

Focus

I pray to Shiva: Show yourself to me. Help me see myself as I am.

115. ಏನನಾದರು ಸಾಧಿಸಬಹುದು ...

ಏನನಾದಡೆಯೂ ಸಾಧಿಸಬಹುದು,
ಮತ್ತೇನನಾದಡೆಯೂ ಸಾಧಿಸಬಹುದಯ್ಯ.
ತಾನಾರೆಂಬುದ ಸಾಧಿಸಬಾರದು,
ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವನ ಕರುಣವುಳ್ಳವಂಗಲ್ಲದೆ.
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
