Ekanata Ramithande

Full Name: Ekanata Ramithande
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Ennayya Chennarama

Lying for food and clothes and for all other passions
troubled by conflicts because of his stinginess
is the not done thing for a guru.
One who has attained Gurusthala should be like a thread hidden in garland,
should know the difference between oil and water,
should be like a snake that peels its own skin.
That is the relation in Gurusthala to know my lord
Chennarameshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1599] [1]

Ekanata Ramithande (c. 1160) is mentioned in a work by Harihara and in the inscription of Abbalur. He is from Alanda Village of Kalburgi district. Purushottama Bhatta was his father and Seethamma his mother. Abbaluru was his place of work.

When Someshwara of Puligere appears in dream and asks him to conquer those who belonged to different religion he goes to Abbaluru. He engages the Jam community in a debate in Brahmeshwara temple. After exhibiting ‘The head miracle’ he establishes Someshwara in the lain basadi. This incident is deseribed in the inscriptions of Abbaluru. Incidents of this miracle are carved on the walls of Someshwara temple.

Bodies being various
what does it mean to say soul is one?
Can light from fire burn? Only fire can.
How can soul suffer experiences in different bodies,
and in another body become united?
This quality is possible only if you know my lord Chennarama
[Vachana No.1600] [1]

7 of his vachanas have been found and they have Ennayya channarama as the signature. They speak of gurusthala, the difference of body and soul, the stae of an ever-literated being and satirize pseudo renunciator.
