Muktaayakka (ಮುಕ್ತಾಯಕ್ಕ)

Full Name: Muktaayakka
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Ajaganna Thande

Do not speak bad words;
do not do bad deeds.
How does it matter whether you speak or you are silent?
If you can keep your vow
that is a great act of wisdom
I say, Ajaganna.
[Vachana No.1329] [1]

Muktaayakka occupies a very high position as a mystic. She was from Lakkundi and her husband was from Maslikallu. Ajaganna was her brother and guru. She was steeped in sorrow at the time ofAjaganna’s death and Ailamaprabhu consoled her by opening her eyes to reality as we know from Shoonya Sampaadane. 32 of her vachanas with the signature Ajaganna Thande are available. These appear to be elegies for her brother and also her spiritual outpourings.

Putting knowledge into the jaws
this mortal world is chewing it away.
Not knowing how to retain knowledge
The whole world is lost.
How can I live, brother?
For, I am a sceptic
who sees both darkness and light.
Your yoga showed me the mirror
blindfolding me, o Ajaganna.
[Vachana No.1324] [1]

Like fragrance hidden in the wind,
like fire hidden in the sun,
like the sixteen kinds of charm hidden in the moon,
like air hidden in sound,
like the dazzling radiance hidden in thunderbolt,
should be Yoga, like my father Ajaganna.
[Vachana No.1325] [1]
