As lord of the mind
Mahadeva has perceived our minds
he makes mortals say unspeakable words,
don't be anxious o mind,
don't be distraught o body,
don't forget the truth
be at peace o heart.
Basavapriya Chennasangaiah can
with the flick of a finger
make a mountain of misdeeds disappear.
[Vachana No.1315] [1]
