ಕಣ್ಗಳು ತುಂಬಿದ ಬಳಿಕ ನೋಡಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಕಿವಿಗಳು ತುಂಬಿದ ಬಳಿಕ ಕೇಲಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಕೈಗಳು ತುಂಬಿದ ಬಳಿಕ ಪೂಜಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ
ಮನವು ತುಂಬಿದ ಬಳಿಕ ನೆನೆಯಲಿಲ್ಲ
kaNgaLu tuMbida baLika nODalilla

manavu tuMbida baLika neneyalilla
The great ones -
after the eyes consummate does not see;
after the ears consummate does not hear;
after the hands consummate does not worship;
after the mind consummates does not think
- of the Lord of Kudalasangama!
1. While it would be good to plan for a bath in a river,
why should the fish in the river plan for a bath!
While for the seeker the worship is the basis
for the elevation and hence he/she should actively
strive for worshipping, why should the accomplished
plan for the worship - he/she is ever in the worship in deed!!
2. c.f. Give me that love that does not think of You
