92. Only one

There’s only one ground
— for a slum or a temple.
There is only one water
— for washing or for worship.
There is only one kula or class
— for those who know themselves.
Paths may be six, the goal
is one and the same – liberation.
For those who know you, Kudala-sangama-deva,
There is only one standpoint (everything is Shiva).
— Basavanna


The one who stays in awareness looks things as they are. To him water is just water without discrimination such as water for washing or water for worship; land is land whether there is a temple on it or there is a slum.


Anchored in awareness everything is Siva, everyone is Shiva.

92. ನೆಲವೊಂದೇ

ನೆಲವೊಂದೇ ಹೊಲಗೇರಿ, ಶಿವಾಲಯಕ್ಕೆ.
ಜಲವೊಂದೇ ಶೌಚಾಚಮನಕ್ಕೆ.
ಕುಲವೊಂದೇ ತನ್ನ ತಾನರಿದವಂಗೆ.
ಫಲವೊಂದೇ ಷಡುದರ್ಶನ ಮುಕ್ತಿಗೆ.
ನಿಲವೊಂದೇ, ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವ,
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
