53. You are Pashupati

When a dumb beast gets stuck in mire,
can it do anything
other than moving its limbs helplessly?
Shiva, Shiva, I’m lost, I’m lost.
Pull me towards you.
I’m the dumb beast and you are the Lord of beasts.
Before people start pelting stones at me,
who has fallen,
Master, take care that you do not earn a bad name,
Kudala-sangama-deva, Shiva.
— Basavanna

Insight

No matter how alert I am, I slip from awareness and get stuck in the mire of individuality. I try hard to come out of the mire of individuality but with no success.

Focus

You are the Master and I’m dumb. Pull me towards you, Shiva, towards awareness.

Vachana Text 53

Bada-pashu pankadalli biddade,
kaala badivudallade beare gatiyunte?
Shiva, Shiva, hoadehe hoadehenayyaa.
Nimma manadattalenna tegeyayya.
Pashuvaanu, Pashupati neenu.
Tuduguniyendu enna hididu badiyada munna,
Odeyaa, nimma bayyadante maadu,
Koodala-sangama-deava.
-- Basavanna

53. ನಾನು ಪಶು, ನೀನು ಪಶುಪತಿ

ಬಡಪಶು ಪಂಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿದ್ದಡೆ
ಕಾಲ ಬಡಿವುದಲ್ಲದೆ ಬೇರೆ ಗತಿಯುಂಟೆ?
ಶಿವ, ಶಿವ, ಹೋದೆಹೆ ಹೋದೆಹೆನಯ್ಯಾ.
ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮನದತ್ತಲೆನ್ನ ತೆಗೆಯಯ್ಯ.
ಪಶುವಾನು ಪಶುಪತಿ ನೀನು.
ತುಡುಗುಣಿಯೆಂದು ಎನ್ನ ಹಿಡಿದು ಬಡಿಯದ ಮುನ್ನ,
ಒಡೆಯಾ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಬಯ್ಯದಂತೆ ಮಾಡು, ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವ.
-- ಬಸವಣ್ಣ
ಸಹಾಯ : (ಸಾಲಿನ ನಂಬರ್ ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ)
1. ಪಂಕ = ಕೆಸರು 3. ಹೋದೆಹೆ = ಕಳೆದುಹೋದೆ, ನಿನ್ನಿಂದ ದೂರವಾದೆ
6.. ತುಡುಗುಣಿ =ಕಳ್ಳ
