Full Name: Sagarada Bommanna
Pen Name (Vachana Signature): Sagarada Bommanodeya Tanumana Sangameshwara


The pollution of the eyes was lost
by seeing you
the pollution of the mind was lost
by contemplating on you
the illusion of all pollution was lost
by un-quenching desire for you
thus all these various means were lost in your grace
Sagarada Bommanodeya Tanumana Sangameshwara.
[Vachana No.2094] [1]

Sagarada Bommanna was from Sagara in Gulbarga district. He practiced Ganaachara, a militant form of devotion and fought against the Jams to uphold the supremacy of Shiva. 91 of his vachanas with the signature Sagarada Bommanodeya Tanumana Sangameshwara have been found.

Possessing the body qualities
if you do not follow the mind qualities
the company of the body is better.
Being in contact with the senses
if you know the sense of touch
the company of senses is better.
Having base qualities and making them dry up
if you realize and know your end
that end is better after merging in
Sagarada Bommanodeya Tanumanalinga.
[Vachana No.2095] [1]

What fear is there for those
who fight from behind the wall?
What do the lame loose when they have shelter?
When they have flat floor made of stone
what fear for the blind? Facing my joy and sorrow
when you are ahead and I am behind
what problem do I have?
As the disgrace of the servant is of the master too
Sagarada Bommanodeya Tanumana Sangameshwaralinga
when you are there what fear do I have?
[Vachana No.2096] [1]
