57. You are the doer

I’m not the doer, I’m not the giver.
I’m not the one who begs for
anything other than your compassion.
When the servant fails to do work,
the mistress does it herself.
In the same way, Kudala-sangama-deva
do your work yourself.
— Basavanna


The work is done but I am not the doer. So many contribute directly or indirectly and the work is done. Shiva chaitanya is present in everyone. The work is done by this Shiva energy.


Job is done. I don’t do it. I am not the doer.

Vachana No. 46 to 59

57. ನಿನಗೆ ನೀ ಮಾಡಿಕೋ

ಮಾಡುವಾತ ನಾನಲ್ಲಯ್ಯ.
ನೀಡುವಾತ ನಾನಲ್ಲಯ್ಯ.
ಬೇಡುವಾತ ನಾನಲ್ಲಯ್ಯ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕಾರುಣ್ಯವಲ್ಲದೆ,
ಎಲೆ ದೇವಾ, ಮನೆಯ ತೊತ್ತು ಅಲಸಿದಡೆ
ಒಡತಿ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಂಬಂತೆ,
ನಿನಗೆ ನೀ ಮಾಡಿಕೋ, ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವ.
