Bibbi Baachayya (ಬಿಬ್ಬಿ ಬಾಚಯ್ಯ)

Full Name: Bibbi Baachayya
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Enaankadhara Someshwara


As oil in a seed is seen by grinding
fragrance of sandal is seen by grinding
the sound of pipe is known with breaks-
all these are examples for having knowledge of ishta,
all these are examples of Pranalingisthala in Enaankadhara
[Vachana No.1868] [1]

Bibbi Baachayya was from Gobburu in Devadruga taluk of Raichur district. In that village there is a spot called arpanada katte and it is believed to be Bachayya’s tomb. 102 of his vachanas with the signature Enaankadhara Someshwara have been found.

water and earth
root and essence
fragrance and tree
cannot exist without the other
in Enaankadhara Someshwaralinga
there is no separation of body-linga-breath relation.
[Vachana No.1871] [1]

Fruit without taste
flower without fragrance
juice without flavor
who needs them?
Worship done by one who has no knowledge
is nothing but mere show.
That is not a step towards Enaankadhara Someshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1876] [1]
