If the sword can be stopped
before it penetrates
what can the sword do?
If one can grip the snake
before it opens its mouth
what can the poison do?
If one can stand in the sublime
before the mind is tempted
what can the senses do, Jaambeshwara? [Vachana No.2022] 
Rayasada Manchanna looked after the correspondence of Basavanna in Kalyaana. Raayamma was his wife. 10 of his vachanas have been found with the signature Jaambeshwara.
If you write and then wipe it
that writing is not perfect, I say.
If you know and then forget
that knowledge is incomplete, I say.
ocean and a palm-full of water are the same, Jaambeshwara. [Vachana No.2023] 
If the swan is offered milk mixed with water,
look at how it distingui hes
and drinks milk leaving water!
If oil and water are mixed
look at how it grows itself
and yet cannot burn properly!
Look, how gold mixed with earth
separates itself, and gets valued.
Being within oneself
yet look at the agony of
not knowing oneself!
All the brothers who labour well but
caught in the trap of gold, woman and world,
seeing those lost and stand
at the door of wealthy brothers
Jaambeshwara derides them. [Vachana No.2024]
