Chikkayyapriya Siddhalinga, no, no, wait, I said. [Vachana No.1675] 
Ghattivaalaya was earlier known as Muddanna. Making soudal paste was his occupation. He became a renunciator having disgusted with an incompatible conjugal life. Many sharanas have said laudatory things about him. An entire chapter is dedicated to him in Shoonyasampadane.
He was a member of the Anubhava Mantapa and a true follower of Basavanna. Because of his strong character, he was known as Ghattivala He never yielded to the temptation of woman and wealth. He severely criticised the Jangamas who lived to eat and went to Basavanna’s house for eating. When the angered Jañgamas stole his Ishtalinga, he took a piece of stone and tied it round his neck. Later Basavanna and Allama. Prahhu revealed the greatness of Ghattivalayya to the ignorant Jangamas.
He has 150 vachanas to his credit and his signature phrase is Chikkayyapriya Siddhalinga illa illa, nillu, maanu. They preach a strict code of conduct, show respect for the contemporary sharanas, and contain reference to some historical issues.
