Baala Bommanna (ಬಾಲ ಬೊಮ್ಮಣ್ಣ)

Full Name: Baala Bommanna
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Veerashura Raameshwara


The Thing is as sure as the snake
that climbs a stick inserted into the hole of its dwelling place.
As you know this
the love for the true Thing should be impressed on your mind
and duality should disappear in Veerashura Raameshwaralinga
[Vachana No.1849] [1]

Baala Bommanna is described in Bhairaveshwara Kavya as follows: Siddharamayya had built the temple in Sholpur and linga worship was going on. Baala Bommanna was worried that he did not have money to offer. Understanding this Siddharamayya called and giving him the spade and crow-bar asked him to dig in the courtyard. Bommanna found a cauldron full of gold coins. He made use of it to build a temple and spent his life worshipping there. 11 of his vacahanas have been found with the signature Veerashura Raameshwara.
