Aayadakki Maarayya (ಆಯ್ದಕ್ಕಿ ಮಾರಯ್ಯ)
|Full Name:||Aayadakki Maarayya|
|Pen Name (Vachana Signature):||Amareeshwaralinga|
|Kayaka (Occupation):||Pick grains that were scattered on the streets of Kalyaana|
If engaged in kaayaka
one should forget visiting guru;
forget worshiping linga
and ned not bother even if jangama stands waiting.
As kaayaka is Kailaasa
even Amareeshwaralinga is included in kaayaka [Vachana No.1520] 
Bringing food from beggary and performing daasoha
is like journey of the lame.
Can a devotee be a beggar?
Having born a devotee and begging for daasoha
is no way to search salvation.
Such attempts do not touch Amareeshwaralinga. [Vachana No.1525] 
Aayadakki Maarayya belonged to Amareshwara of Lingasuni in Raichur district. Lakkamma was his wife. His occupation was to pick grains that were scattered on the streets of Kalyaana.
He was supreme among the devotees who were dedicated to kaayaka and daasoha. Work is heaven was the principle of his life. He has written vachanas under the signature Amareshwaralinga. His 32 vachanas talk of the philosophy of Kaayaka.
Until ripened the fruit should retain its desire for the root.
So long as one is obliged to the mortal world
company of truthful sharanas and
continuous service of jangama should be observed
to know Amareeshwaralinga. [Vachana No.1523]
