Tanuvemba – Ugabhoga .

Tanuvemba Dodda Doniyalli | Hari Naamavemba bandava Tumbi| Vyavahaaravannu Maaduvenayya|

Indriyagalemba Sunkavu Addavaagalu | Mukundana Mudreyannu Toeri| Holeya Daatuvenayya|

Purandara Vittalanallige Pogi | Mukuti Sukhavemba Laabhagalisuvenayya|

 ತನುವೆಂಬ ದೊಡ್ಡ ದೋಣಿಯಲಿ | ಹರಿನಾಮವೆಂಬ ಬಾಂಡವ  ತುಂಬಿ |
 
ವ್ಯವಹಾರವನ್ನು ಮಾಡುವೆನಯ್ಯ | ಇಂದ್ರಿಯಗಳೆಂಬ ಸುಂಕವು ಅಡ್ಡವಾಗಲು|
 
ಮುಕುಂದನ ಮುದ್ರೆಯನು ತೋರಿ | ಹೊಳೆಯ ದಾತುವೆನಯ್ಯ |
 
ಪುರಂದರ ವಿಠಲನಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಪೋಗಿ| ಮುಕುತಿಯ ಸುಖವೆಂಬ ಲಾಭಗಲಿಸುವೆನಯ್ಯ |

Here Purandaradasa gives a simple solution for all problems one faces in life. He compares the human body[tanu] to a boat [ doni ] which has to cross the ocean of samsaara to attain Salvation. For this to happen one needs to perform all actions in this world [vyavahaara] with the Lord’s name.  To attain our ultimate goal [Salvation] the mind would indeed get tempted with the worldly pleasures [Indriya Sukha]. One could  overcome the worldly temptations by Mukunda [Lord’s name] Mudre[ Symbol]. With Hari Naama as a Sceptre one could cross the ocean of Samsaara and attain Mukti. [Permanant Bliss!]
