Enough, this perversion of body, get up.
Enough, this deception of nature, get up.
Remember your union with linga of devotion and liberation, get up.
Knowing the order of your guru and the awareness of your virakti, getup. I have made the announcement.
If you bat an eyelid
it is no more possible to unite with
Suddhasiddhaprasanna Kurangeeshwaralinga,
get up if you want to unite with him
[Vachana No.1596] [1]

Yechacharike Kaayakada Muktinathayya was also known as Muttanna. He was a night watchman. He had a long signature phrase Shuddha Siddha Prasiddha Prasanna Kurangeshwara Linga. His 11 vachanas are extant. They use the terms of vigilance and speak about spirituality.

One quarter of the day was spent
for hunger, thirst and other desires.
Another quarter was spent
for sleep, dreams and other anxieties.
Yet another quarter wasted
for kisses of women, their breasts and other perversities.
One quarter remains.
Know the path you have travelled.
Know what happens next.
Follow your daily rules
and do not fail the bounds of your Shiva worship,
Pranava, strengthening of your feelings,
salvation through virakti, and salvation through good bhakti.
Before sunrise, before various sounds of birds, animals and humans fill the world
wake up and meditate
if you want to unite with
Suddhasiddhaprasanna Kurangeeshwaralinga.
Get up if you want to unite
[Vachana No.1597] [1]
