112. Only Shiva knows that joy

The joy of thought (of Shiva)
is swallowed by the glimpse ( of Linga on the palm)
The joy of the glimpse
is swallowed by the fusion ( with Linga).
The joy of fusion
is swallowed by contentment.
The joy of contentment
is swallowed by the union with That.
The joy of union with That,
Is known only to Kudala-chenna-sangayya, Shiva!
— Chenna-basavanna


There is joy when the mind is filled with awareness. With the mind filled with awareness, when I see Linga, the seer and the seen become one. The seer forgets himself. The seer dissolves in the seen.


With individuality melted away, the bliss of being no more bound by individuality, only Shiva knows, as I cease to exist.
