93. Space is one, unfragmented

Can there be a separate space,
one inside the town and another outside?
Can there be a separate space,
one for brahmins in the town and
another for outcastes outside the town?
Wherever you look, there is only one space.
Only the wall raised creates inside and outside.
Wherever you look and call out,
the one who roams free, Shiva, will respond.
— Bonta-devi


Space is one, unfragmented. Only the wall raised creates inside and outside whereas Shiva roams free.


Like space, awareness has no boundary. In the vast ocean of awareness arises knowledge of an object , stays on for some time and sinks just like various structures raise in space, stay for a while and then fall. Let me move from awareness of something to bare awareness and stay there.

Vachana No. 85 to 93



Vachana Text 93

Oora olagana bayalu,
oora horagana bayalendunte?
Ooralage braahmana bayalu
oora horage hole bayalendunte?
Elli noadidade bayalonde.
Bhittiyinda ola-horagemba naamavaise.
Elli noadidade karedade
‘O’ embaatane Bidaadi.
-- Bontadevi

93. ಬಯಲೊಂದೆ

ಊರ ಒಳಗಣ ಬಯಲು,
ಊರ ಹೊರಗಣ ಬಯಲೆಂದುಂಟೆ?
ಊರೊಳಗೆ ಬ್ರಾಹ್ಮಣಬಯಲು
ಊರ ಹೊರಗೆ ಹೊಲೆಬಯಲೆಂದುಂಟೆ?
ಎಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿದಡೆ ಬಯಲೊಂದೆ.
ಭಿತ್ತಿಯಿಂದ ಒಳಹೊರಗೆಂಬ ನಾಮವೈಸೆ.
ಎಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿದಡೆ ಕರೆದಡೆ ಓ ಎಂಬಾತ ಬಿಡಾಡಿ
-- ಬೊಂತಾದೇವಿ
