Listen, O lord Kudalasangama, but the moving ever shall stay. He championed the use of vernacular language, Kannada , in all spiritual discussions so that translation and interpretation by the elite is unnecessary, and everyone can understand the spiritual ideas.

Basavanna established, in 12th-century, Anubhava Mantapa, a hall for gathering and discussion of spiritual ideas by any member of the society from both genders, where ardent devotees of Shiva shared their achievements and spiritual poems in the local language. How can I feel right about a god who eats up lacquer and melts, who wilts when he sees a fire?

How can I feel right about gods you sell in your need, and gods you bury for fear of thieves? The lord Kudalasangama, he alone is the true god. Sruti has commended it as the all-seeing. The form of that divine linga is the true God. The guru [teacher] of the creed is an embodiment of kindness and compassion.

He places God in your soul, and he also places God in your hand. The six-syllabled mantra , [28] the supreme mantra, is its mantra. The dress — locks of hair, ashes and rudrashaka beads — place a man beyond the cycle of birth and death. It follows the path of liberation.

This path offers nothing less than liberation in this lifetime. The Lingayats, also known as Virasaivas or Veerasaivas, traditionally believe that Basava was the founder of their tradition. The community is largely concentrated in Karnataka , but has migrated into other states of India as well as overseas. Towards the end of the 20th century, Michael estimates, one-sixth of the population of the state of Karnataka, or about 10 million people, were Lingayat Hindus, or of the tradition championed by Basava.

Jan Peter Schouten states that Virashaivism, the movement championed by Basava, tends towards monotheism with Shiva as the godhead, but with a strong awareness of the unity of the Ultimate Reality. Many contemporary Vachanakaras people who have scripted Vachanas have described him as Swayankrita Sahaja, which means "self-made". Basaveshwara is the first Kannadiga in whose honour a commemorative coin has been minted in recognition of his social reforms.
