1. ನೀರಕ್ಷೀರದಂತೆ ನೀನಿಪ್ಪೆಯಾಗಿ
ಆವುದು ಮುಂದು ಆವುದು ಹಿಂದು ಎಂದರಿಯೆ.
ಆವುದು ಕರ್ತೃ ಆವುದು ಭೃತ್ಯನೆಂದರಿಯೆ
ಆವುದು ಘನ ಆವುದು ಕಿರಿದೆಂದರಿಯೆ
ನೀನೊಲಿದು ಕೊಂಡಾಡಿದಡೆ ಇರುಹೆ ರುದ್ರನಾಗದೆ ಹೇಳಯ್ಯಾ.

2. You are like milk
in water: I cannot tell
what came before what after;
which is the master,
which the slave;
what`s big,
what`s small.

O lord white as jasmine
if an ant should love you
and praise you,
will he not grow
to demon powers?
(A. K. Ramanujan)

3. As you are like water in milk
I do not know
what`s first, what`s next
what`s master, what is slave,
O Chennamallikarjuna
By singing your praises with love
Will not an ant become Rudra?
