Amugi Devayya (ಅಮುಗಿ ದೇವಯ್ಯ)
|Full Name:||Amugi Devayya|
|Pen Name (Vachana Signature):||Siddhasomanaatha|
One should not listen to the words of explicators
who say that by thinking of Shiva the worldliness is destroyed.
Do not say like that.
Does the darkness get destroyed by the thought of light?
Does the belly get full by the thought of desired food?
Does the turmoil of sex subside by the thought of divine Rambha?
It is not enough just to think
until you really decide and become what you really are.
Till then the thought of Somanaathalinga is impossible
[Vachana No.1430] 
Amugi Devayya lived in Sholapur. Weaving was his occupation. Varadaani was his wife. Some inscriptions of Pulaje in Maharashtra refer to him. One inscription describes how Yadava emperor Singhana honoured him; another praises him as ‘the sun of Maheshwaragana’ and ‘the ocean that enhances the clan of the enlightened beings’.
The legend that he made Kapilasiddha Mallikaarjuna of Sholapur carry household things and thereby taught a lesson to Siddharama appears in several poems. 30 vachanas are found with the signature Siddhasomanaatha and they speak of his devotion to his ishtalinga and the a description of sharana principle.
Like the wind to which particles of dust cannot stick
like the pupil that is not tainted by kaajal
like the tongue to which oil cannot get stuck
like the goodness that cannot be turned to mud
Siddhasomanaatha your sharana enjoys all pleasures and yet stays apart. [Vachana No.1431]
