    Basaveshwara, also known as Basavanna, was an Indian statesman, philosopher, poet, Lingayat saint of the Shiva-oriented Bhakti movement, and Shaivite Hindu social reformer who lived during the Kalyani Chalukya dynasty/Kalachuri in the 12th century. Basavanna was a Shiva devotee, Hindu scholar, Bhakti movement Kannada poet, and social reformer. His poetry is called Vachanas, and it is about life. Many people are drawn to his beliefs because he believes there should be no discrimination. He rejected temple rites, symbolism, and worship.
