Happiness or sadness
it is all the same for the devotee;
riches or trying times
it is all the same for the devotee.
If a devotee cannot say this
he will come to harm.
Swearing by the jangama
if he grows his muscle
to humiliate others before him
that very day he is out of divine grace
o Gavareshwara. [Vachana No.1961] 
Medara Ketayya was a basket-weaver and he belonged of Uluvibetta near Belur. Saatavva was his wife. 11 of his vachanas have been traced with Gavareshwara as his signature.
Can there be profit without principal?
Can there be testing without learning?
Can there be linga without guru
At this double-dealing language
I am mortified, O Gavareshwara. [Vachana No.1962]
