|Pen Name (Vachana Signature):||Amugeshwaralinga, Amugeshwara|
What if one is as bare as a donkey, can he relate to Ishtalinga?
What if one is holding an Ishtalinga in his hand, can he become eternal?
When I see the ferocious Aghoris, those fake ascetics burdened with the unreal,
I won’t show my face like the cuckoo in winter,
O Amugeshwara! [vachana No. 1270] 
Amuge Ryamma is Amuge Devayya’s wife. She was also known as Varadaniyamma. Their Kayaka was weaving. Her vachanas are addressed to Amugesvaralinga She is a frank criticizer of hypocritical Jañgamas.
When Amuge Rayamma saw a man, without any sincere belief in the Ishtalinga, walking into the Anubhava Mantapa to receive the Istalinga, she loudly said:
Why hold a mirror to one who has no nose?
Why urge one who has no hands to ride a horse?
Why make one who has no legs to climb a ladder?
Why Ishtalinga to one who knows no devotion, knowledge and dispassion? [vachana No. 1286]
Just look at the logical progression of ideas! Just look at the basic truth in her assertions! How simple is her style! How elegant is her logic! How sublime are her thoughts!
Do you need a pole when you’re leaping to the sky?
Do you need the earth when you’re walking above the ground?
Do you need the nod of the vain when you know yourself?
Do you need woman when you are a recluse?
O sharana who knows Amugeshwaralinga,
Do you need to worry about lowly worldlings who flaunt safforn? [vachana No. 1265]
