If I follow the path of Advaita,
You say that it is difficult to overcome ego;
if I pray ‘please protect me, O bestower of boons to devotees’,
You say that I am a Dvaitin. One praised by Thyagaraja!

Commentary

  • 1tannu vIDanu – to overcome ego. The difficulty in pursuing the path of Advaita is brought out in Srimad Bhagavat Gita, Chapter 12, Verse 5.
    • “Greater is their trouble whose minds are set on the Unmanifested; for the goal of the Unmanifested is very hard for the embodied to reach.”
