Full Name: Meremindayya
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Aighatadoora Raameshwaralinga.

If you say gold is superior and earth inferior
where will you place gold and melt it
if not in the earthen pot?
This is the manifest form
for having faith in the transcendent
and for knowing Aighatadoora Raameshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1947] [1]

Meremindayya is different from Mere Mindadeva, one of the 63 Ancients of Tamilnadu. He was a contemporary of Basavanna. 110 of his vachanas vachanas have been traced with the signature Aightadoora Raamalingeshwara. Many sharanas remember him with reverence.

Those who are ours will become others
as we fight for woman, wealth and the world.
If we give up these three others will become ours.
For one who knows and the one who is worldly
desire is the only difference.
Be out of this duality to know Aighatadoora Raameshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1949] [1]

Just as fruit keeps juice,
the earth keeps wealth,
mother keeps the child in her womb,
you have existed as a sign,
you have made the soul hide you.
In order to know Aighatadoora Raameshwaralinga
forget your body in the image, do not forget the Thing.
[Vachana No.1955] [1]
