|Pen Name (Vachana Signature):||Eshwaraya Varda Mahaalinga|
I do not want the teachings of guru
that does not set me free from gold, earth and women.
I do not worship Linga
that does not destroy anger and pleasures.
I do not perform daasoha to jangama
that does not destroy the darkness of illusion.
I do not accept paadodaka
that does not give me ultimate bliss.
I do not take prasaada
that does not make my mind tranquil.
What can I say of Eshwariya Varada Mahalinga
That does not destroy my ego. [Vachana No.1421] 
Appidevaiah’s (c. 1650) only one vachana has been found under the signature Eshwariyavarda Mahaalinga. He asserts that there is no need to overcome ego and also there is no need of GuruLinga-Jangana-paadodaka and prasaada.
