17. When the sharanas reveal their truth…

Lakes, water holes and wells,
when they open their bodies to us,
we may find bubbles, mud and shells.
When the ocean opens its body to us,
we may find gems and pearls.
When the Sharanas of Kudala-sanga,
Shiva, open up to us,
we will see the very Linga.
Basavanna

Insight

I see Shiva in the words of the Sharanas.

Vachana Text 17

Kere, halla, bhaavigalu maidegedade
gulle, goraje, chippu kaanabahudu.
Vaarudhi maidegedade
Ratna-muttugala kaanabahudu.
Koodala-sangana sharanaru
manaderedu maatanaadidade
Lingava kaanabahudu.
-- Basavanna

17. ಶರಣರು ಮನದೆರೆದು ಮಾತನಾಡಿದರೆ

ಕೆರೆ, ಹಳ್ಳ, ಬಾವಿಗಳು ಮೈದೆಗೆದಡೆ
ಗುಳ್ಳೆ, ಗೊರಜೆ, ಚಿಪ್ಪು ಕಾಣಬಹುದು.
ವಾರುಧಿ ಮೈದೆಗೆದಡೆ ರತ್ನಮುತ್ತುಗಳ ಕಾಣಬಹುದು.
ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗನ ಶರಣರು ಮನದೆರೆದು ಮಾತನಾಡಿದಡೆ
ಲಿಂಗವ ಕಾಣಬಹುದು.
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
ಸಹಾಯ : (ಸಾಲಿನ ನಂಬರ್ ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ)
3. ವಾರುಧಿ = ಭೂಮಿ
