Full Name: Aydakki Lakkamma
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Maarayyapriya Amareshwarlinga
Kayaka (Occupation): Pick grains that were scattered on the streets of Kalyaana

Ayya,
the king has desire;
would the devotees of Shiva have it?
The messengers of Yama have anger;
would the unborn ones have it?
Why do you crave for so much rice?
Shiva will not accept it.
Maarayya,
you will be far from
Maarayyapriya Amareshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1293] [1]

Can devotees perform daasoha with immoral earnings?
One should work with one heart,
one should do with one heart.
Before one heart becomes two,
Maarayya, offer yourself to Maarayyapriya Amareshwaralinga
[Vachana No.1296] [1]

Aydakki Lakkamma was wife of Aaydakki Marayya. They basically belonged to Amareshwara of Lingasuru taluk in Raichur district. Their main occupation was to pick grains on the streets of Kalyaana.

25 vachanas have been found which have the signature Mareshwarapriya Amareshwarlinga. They all underline the significaance of kaayaka and daasoha. In Shoonya Sampadane tells how this couple attached great importance to the twin concepts of kaayaka and daasoha.

For those impure at heart
there is a lack of resources.
For those who do kayaka with a pure heart,
for those good devotees,
Lakshmi the goddess of wealth
is there everywhere,
so long as they serve
Maarayyapriya Amareshwaralinga
[Vachana No.1297] [1]
