Before the Time Vanishes, Worship the Linga!

Prayer of the Day

Prayer from Basavanna Vachana


ಹೊತ್ತಾರೆ ಎದ್ದು ಅಗ್ಘವಣಿ ಪತ್ರೆಯ ತಂದು
ಹೊತ್ತು ಹೋಗದ ಮುನ್ನ ಪೂಜಿಸು ಲಿಂಗವ.
ಹೊತ್ತು ಹೋದ ಬಳಿಕ ನಿನ್ನನಾರು ಬಲ್ಲರು?
ಹೊತ್ತು ಹೋಗದ ಮುನ್ನ ಮೃತ್ಯುವೊಯ್ಯಾ ಮುನ್ನ
ತೊತ್ತುಗೆಲಸವ ಮಾಡು ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವನ

Song as Romanized text


hottAre eddu agghavaNi patreya taMdu
hottu hOgada munna pUjisu liMgava.
hottu hOda baLika ninnanAru ballaru?
hottu hOgada munna mRutyuvoyyaa munna
tottugelasava mADu kUDalasaMgamadEvana

Meaning of the Prayer Song:

 Getting up at dawn, bringing water and leaves,
before the time passes, worship the Linga!
Who can help you when the time is gone?
Before the time vanishes, before you are dead,
do the servitude of the Divine of Kudalasangama!


1. hottAre - dawn; agghavaNi - water; patra - leaf;
hottu - time; tottugelasa - servitude.

2. This is a consistent advice from all wise people.
Before the time passes and the life comes to end worship Lord Shiva!

We have got this opportunity of living in the well evolved human body.
Who knows what is next? Use the opportunity right now and
worship the God. Otherwise what would remain at the time of death
is regret for wasting the life.

c.f. கற்றுக் கொள்வன வாயுள நாவுள 
இட்டுக் கொள்வன பூவுள நீருள 
கற்றைச் செஞ்சடை யானுளன் நாமுளோம் 
எற்றுக் கோநம னால்முனி வுண்பதே - திருநாவுக்கரசு சுவாமிகள்
