Are You inside the illusion or is the illusion within You?
Are You inside the body or is the body within You?
Are the grounds inside the temple or is the temple within the grounds?
Are both the temple and the grounds are within the eye?
Is the eye inside the intellect or is the intellect within the eye?
Are both the eye and the intellect within You?
Is the sweetness inside sugar or is the sugar within the sweetness?
Are both sweetness and sugar within the tongue?
Is the tongue inside the mind or the mind within the tongue?
Are both tongue and mind within You, Oh Hari!
Is the fragrance inside the flower or the flower within the fragrance?
Are both the fragrance and the flower within the nose?
Oh Kaginele Adi Keshava of incomparable origin!
I am not powerful enough to answer, everything is within You Hari.
