A pot cannot become clay,
a fire cannot become wood,
a pearl cannot become water,
sacred words of the real sharana
blessed by the guru cannot become spittle,
O Guru Niranjana Channabasavalinga
[Vachana No.2430] [1]

They are compiled under the title Shatsthala Vachanagalu. In all 53 sthalas have been conceived here.

Like the ghee in milk
like the fruit in a tender plant
like the son in the newly weds
Guru Niranjana Channabasavalinga
remains invisible.
[Vachana No.2433] [1]

Walking without feet
touching without hands
seeing without eyes
hearing without ears
smelling without the nose
speaking without the tongue
being happy without the I
is the union of your sharana with the linga
o Guru Niranjana Channabasavalinga.
[Vachana No.2424] [1]

Ayya,
my legs do not get tired dancing
my hands do not get tired worshipping
my eyes do not get tired seeing
my tongue does not get tired singing
my ears do not get tired hearing
my feelings do not get tired begging
for the love of your sharanas,
O Guru Niranjana Channabasavalinga.
[Vachana No.2419] [1]
