17-taLamaLavidEnILege dEvadanujara mathise...

    Translation in English: O! Mankutimma, why are everyone on this earth so restless? It is similar to the restlessness among the Gods and Demons during the churning of the ocean when poison emanated as a produce. No one knew that it would be followed by elixir. So they did not know what to do with the poison. Luckily they had Lord Shiva to consume the posion and rescue the world. If we also know that there is such a person who will consume all our worries, then would we be still restless?
