Kagga 18 – Overeating is debt

ಅನ್ನವುಣುವಂದು ಕೇಳ್: ಅದನು ಬೇಯಿಸಿದ ನೀರ್ ।
ನಿನ್ನ ದುಡಿತದ ಬೆಮರೊ, ಪೆರರ ಕಣ್ಣೀರೋ? ॥
ತಿನ್ನು ನೀಂ ಜಗಕೆ ತಿನಲಿತ್ತನಿತ; ಮಿಕ್ಕೂಟ ।
ಜೀರ್ಣಿಸದ ಋಣಶೇಷ – ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ ॥
Ask while you eat, the water you used
Is your sweat or others’ tears?
You must eat as much you’ve given to the world
Anything eaten more is a debt – Mankutimma
