ಗ್ರಹಗತಿಯ ತಿದ್ದುವನೆ ಜೋಯಿಸನು ಜಾತಕದಿ? । - 366 - Mankutimma - DVG

ಗ್ರಹಗತಿಯ ತಿದ್ದುವನೆ ಜೋಯಿಸನು ಜಾತಕದಿ? ।

ವಿಹಿತವಾಗಿಹುದದರ ಗತಿ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿ ವಿಧಿಯಿಂ ॥

ಸಹಿಸಿದಲ್ಲದೆ ಮುಗಿಯದಾವ ದಶೆ ಬಂದೊಡಂ ।

ಸಹನೆ ವಜ್ರದ ಕವಚ - ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ ॥ ೩೬೬ ॥

Will an astrologer rearrange placement of planets in a horoscope?
Planet movement is governed by destiny of nature.
Irrespective of change in astrological time cycles, nothing is completed without forbearance….Patience is the only impregnable [diamond] armor - Mankutimma - 366

ಬದುಕು ಕದನವೆಂದಂಜಿ ಬಿಟ್ಟೋಡುವನು । Mankutimma - 598 DVG

ಬದುಕು ಕದನವೆಂದಂಜಿ ಬಿಟ್ಟೋಡುವನು ।

ಬಿದಿಯ ಬಾಯಿಗೆ ಕವಳವಾಗದುಳಿಯುವನೆ? ॥

ಎದೆಯನುಕ್ಕಾಗಿಸುತ, ಮತಿಗದೆಯ ಪಿಡಿದು, ನೀ- ।

ನೆದುರು ನಿಲೆ ಬಿದಿಯೊಲಿವ – ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ ॥ ೫೯೮ ॥

If retreating from life considering it to be a battle, will he escape from clutches of destiny?

For destinies reverential acceptance, one should face it with club of intellectual wisdom in ones hand and an iron heart - Mankutimma - 598

Start with the idea that we can finish all experience of this world in this incarnation. We must aim to become perfect in this life this very moment. Success only comes to that life amongst men who wants to do this very moment. It is acquired by him who says : " Faith, I wait upon faith, come what may. "

Therefore, go on knowing you are to finish this very moment. Struggle hard, and then, if you do not succeed, you are not to blame. Let world praise or blame you, let all the wealth of the earth come to your feet, or let you be made the poorest on earth, let death come this moment or hundreds of years hence, swerve not from the path you have taken. All good thoughts are immortal and go to make Buddhas and Christs.
