Kannada ‘Vachana' - Basava

Do not steal, Do not kill,
Do not utter the untruth,
Never be angry, never loathe others,
Do not boast of yourself or criticize anyone.
This is the way to cleanse the soul.
This is the way to cleanse the body.
This is the way to please our Lord Kudalasangama.

Basava (or Basavanna / Basaveshwara, also known as Basaveshwara (1134–1196) India
