My Dignity & Disrespect is all Yours !
ಎನ್ನ ವಾಮ ಕ್ಷೇಮ ನಿಮ್ಮದಯ್ಯ
ಎನ್ನ ಹಾನಿ ವೃದ್ಧಿ ನಿಮ್ಮದಯ್ಯ
ಎನ್ನ ಮಾನ ಅಪಮಾನವೂ ನಿಮ್ಮದಯ್ಯ
ಬಳ್ಳಿಗೆ ಕಾಯಿ ದಿಮ್ಮಿತ್ತೆ, ಕೂಡಲ ಸನ್ಗಮ ದೇವಾ
enna vAma kshEma nimmadayya
enna hAni vR^iddhi nimmadayya
enna mAna apamAnavU nimmadayya
baLLige kAyi dimmitte, kUDala sangama dEvA
(The ownership of) my ill-being and well-being is Yours.
(The ownership of) my decay and growth is Yours.
(The ownership of) my dignity and disrespect is also Yours.
For the creeper is the fruit a load ?
Oh Lord of kUDala sangama
1. When the state is unconditional and complete
surrender to God, what is our ownership.
Whatever it comes - be it good or bad - in the
eyes of the world, everything is owned by God.
What the devotee enjoys is the never decaying
bliss in the relationship with the God
Who cannot grow any further !
2. The saints who have completely offered
themselves to God and remain in that state,
any crime committed against them is that committed
against God. They do not care, but God does for
them. The same way the support offered to them
is an offering to God. This is very explicit in the
guru - jangama bhakti.
3. c.f. "Haven't You taken my soul, body and all
belongings to be Yours the same day You took
me as Your devotee ? Can there be a hurdle for
me today ?" - thiruvAcakam.
