Each day is accepted
by the world as it comes.
Father, when will I remember you?
When will I worship you?
If you think of you with
equanimity, today is better than tomorrow
Mahaalinga Kalleshwara.
[Vachana No.2182] [1]

Havinhaala Kallayya (c.1160) was from Havinaalu in Bijapur district and was from goldsmith’s community. Kallinaatha of Haavinaalu was his personal deity. Shivanayya was his father and Somavve his mother.

By loving, you must win love;
if you are not loved, love is not there.
Fool, do not jump to different branches.
He will drive you away
he will scrape you
he will test you
he will press you.
If you do not give up loyalty
he gives himself
Mahaalinga Kalleshwara.
[Vachana No.2192] [1]

Harihara mentions the miracles performed by Kallayya like bringing life back to a dead snake, making a dog read the Vedas and his powers of transmigration. He became a sharana as a result of his contact with Revanasiddha, Rudramnui and Siddharama.

He went to Sholapur after the revolution of Kalyaana and died there. His tomb is found in the Siddharameshwara’s temple complex at Sholapur. 103 of his vachanas have been found with the signature Mahaalinga Kalleshwara.

He does not perform any ritual,
he does not do any karma,
he does not follow any sheela,
he does not practice any penance,
he is not liable to any wrangles,
he is a sacred soul,
He is bodied and bodiless naturally.
Mahaalinga Kalleshwara, such is your sharana.
[Vachana No.2187] [1]
