Full Name: Sangameshwara Appanna
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Basavapriya Koodalachennasangamaadeva

I do not know the date or the day
I do not know the auspicious or the inauspicious moment.
knowing these, they talk of seven days and eighteen castes.
We do not know these.
We treat one night as a week and one day as another week.
the night as a day, light as a day
bhavi as one caste
bhakta as one caste.
We know only this
Basavapriya Koodalachennasangamadva.
[Vachana No.2047] [1]

Sangameshwara Appanna was perhaps from Sangameshwara as the prefix to his name indicates. Copious referemce to Sanskrit texts in his vachanas indicate his scholarship. 102 of vachanas with the signature Basavapriya Koodalachennasangamaadeva have been discovered. In most of them he condenms other sects and upholds supremacy of Shiva.

When the devotees come to other devote’s house
they must feel at home;
not fearing or hesitating, but be in their purity.
If the masters are like servants
Basavapriya Koodalachennasangamadeva
will break the teeth.
[Vachana No.2050] [1]

Each day you must truly believe
you have completed hundred years;
you must remember the ancients;
if the jangama comes to the math
you must treat him without deceit;
give me this blessing
Basavapriya Koodalachennasangamadeva.
[Vachana No.2043] [1]
