Manasanda Maarithande (ಮಾನಸದ ಮಾರಿತಂದೆ)

Full Name: Manasanda Maarithande
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Manasandittu Maareshwara


Saying ishtalinga and pranalinga
can you have separate rules?
As tree hidden in a seed
and seed swallowing the tree
Ishta and prana should be merged.
It is like water becoming pearl.
Both are one Manasandittu Maareshwara.
[Vachana No.1907] [1]

Manasanda Maarithande is a sharana about whom we do not know much. 101 of his vachanas have been traced with the signature phrase Manasandittu Maareshwara.

stone becoming gem with lust
water becoming salt losing its moisture
water becoming ripe with the union of air
Once the past is destroyed and born again
if one mixes with one’s family saying they are mine
that quality is out of practice.
If mind loves to mix with them saying
‘these are my mother, father, brothers and kin’
that practice is corrupt and far from reason,
not appropriate to the supreme.
If one survives and stays subtracting all this
one is Manasandittu Maareshwara.
[Vachana No.1908] [1]

Worship done for fame and profit spoiled the wealth.
Showy disinterestedness yielded the body to three things.
Non-duality, jealousy and arguments
made the heart stone for victory and defeat.
Know what is and what is not
mind was no more, Manasandittu Maareshwara is.
[Vachana No.1910] [1]
