Manumuni Gummatadeva (ಮನಮುನಿ ಗುಮ್ಮಟದೇವ)

Full Name: Manumuni Gummatadeva
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Gudina Gummatanodeya Agammyeshwaralinga


Forgetting to sip nectar and going in search of porridge,
having Shiva within and going with the company of mean persons,
I say, for such men
Gudiyodeya Gummatanaatha Agamyeeshwaralinga is not.
[Vachana No.1920] [1]

Manumuni Gummatadeva could be from Jam community who embraced sharanadharma subsequently. 99 of his vachanas have been found with the signature phrase Gudina GummatanodeyaAgammyeshwaralinga.

Origin in guru, being in linga, completion in jangama knowing
the three have great union with the thing beyond.
I declare, unite with Gummatanaatha Agamyeeshwaralinga
knowing the nest of body from inside.
[Vachana No.1908] [1]

All those who show the path
can they be fearless in the presence of fear?
All those who narrate the Vedas, shaastra, puraana and aagama can they ever penetrate the true principle?
Know the decoration of coward, harshness of sun
and union with unknowing person,
know what to accept and what to reject.
Without delay
unite with Gudiya Gummatanaatha Agamyeeshwaralinga.
[Vachana No.1925] [1]
