When you have money and youth
you will not say ‘Shiva I submit to you.’
Oh, man! Remember Shiva, remember before you are undone.
Wealth will not stay, nor your youth or life.
think of Sri Mallikaarjuna before you are destroyed.
[Vachana No.1928] 
Mallikaarjuna Pandithaaraadhya belonged to the Aaradhya tradition of Andhra. As the legend goes he learnt Kannada when he put on his forehead the holy ash sent by Basavanna. He set off to Kalyaana and on his way learnt that Basavanna was no more and he saw the final moments of Basavanna’s life in his Isthalinga. 13 of his vachanas have been found with the signature Mallikaarjuna
