ವಾಯು ಇಮ್ಮಡಿಸಿತ್ತ ಕಂಡೆ ಗುಹೇಶ್ವರಾ
uri pavana doShadoLagirdu
vaayu immmaDisitta kaMDe guhEshvaraa.
uri (fire) pavana (wind) doShadoLagirdu (having badly influenced)
vaayu (air) immmaDisitta ( doubling) kaMDe (I saw) guhEshvaraa (Guheshvara).
The fire, having badly influenced by the wind
I saw the air doubling, Guhesvara!
The second line refers to jnaana (awareness, knowledge) as the ‘fire’ and says that this fire got extinguished. This is the influence of maya, the illusion we have fallen into. The mind, referred to as ‘water’ became thirsty, drank more water and got further diluted. Wandering is the nature of the mind. The uncontrolled mind, desirous of more and more, became much more of a wanderer.
In summary, we have been bestowed with a great and wonderful instrument, our body. It houses all the spark of life we need and can use. We extinguish this spark with our wandering mind and uncontrolled desires. With our deep attachments to mundane world and its ups and downs, we also have become experts in increasing our sorrow and further enhancing the wandering nature of our mind.
