The eating bowl is not one bronze
and the looking glass another.

     Bowl and mirror are one metal
     Giving back light
     one becomes a mirror.

          Aware, one is the Lord's;
          unaware, a mere human.

               Worship the lord without forgetting,
               the lord of the meeting rivers.


-- from Speaking of Siva, by A K Ram

Poetry Chaikhana | Basava - The eating bowl is not one bronze

I have read seven poems by this 12th century Shaivite poet.  At leas five are wonderful!

From Today's Daily Tao - 26

The heavy is the root of the light.
The still is the master of unrest.

        Gai-fu Feng and Jane English translation.
Daily Tao - 26
