Poem by Basava, "The pot is a God" 

The pot is a God

By Basava
(1134 - 1196)

English version by A. K. Ramanujan

The pot is a God. The winnowing
fan is a God. The stone in the
street is a God. The comb is a
God. The bowstring is also a
God. The bushel is a God and the
spouted cup is a God.

Gods, gods, there are so many
there's no place left
for a foot.
          There is only
one God. He is our Lord
of the Meeting Rivers.

-- from Speaking of Siva, by A K Ramanujan
