142-Moola vastuvadondu leelegosuga nooru....

Translation:     "The ultimate truth (essence) is one. So the sake of spicing it up, it takes up hundred forms. If you splice the existence based on time, they are all different. But if watched in totality of space and time, they are all one and the same. One must lead the life in this coarse world which is compartmentalized. But he must understand the subtlety of the one-ness in this world. Only then will he be on top of his life." – Mankutimma
