When a man goes after a woman
She will be considered his asset
When a woman goes after a man
What should one make of it?
If one can get over this duality and be contented
I shall say that Nasthinatha is perfect [Vachana No.1311] 
ಗಂಡು ಮೋಹಿಸಿ ಹೆಣ್ಣ ಹಿಡಿದಡೆ
ಅದು ಒಬ್ಬರ ಒಡವೆ ಎಂದರಿಯಬೇಕು
ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಮೋಹಿಸಿ ಗಂಡ ಹಿಡಿದಡೆ
ಈ ಎರಡರ ಉಭಯವ ಕಳೆದು ಸುಖಿ ತಾನಾಗಬಲ್ಲದೆ
Dhupada Goggavve hailed from a village called Avaluru in Kerala State India. she had the occupation (Kayaka) of offering incense. Her parents were ardent devotees of Shiva. Goggavve was from her very birth a devotee of GOD. As she had fallen in love with GOD, she rejected the worldly marriage and went to Kalyaana.

Goggavve was a bold champion of woman’s rights of equality and liberty. She has written 6 vachanas under the signature Naastinaatha. She speaks of the equality of man and woman.
If breasts sprout they call it woman.
If moustache grows they call it man
The knowledge of this duality,
Is it man or woman, Nasthinatha? [Vachana No.1312]
