Allamaprabhu then graciously corrected Basavanna to give more importance to a guest than to Linga. This incident made Basavanna realize the philosophy of Athithi Devobahava. The precious virtues reflected in the episodes related above are only illustrative and not exhaustive of Basava philosophy. Imbibing them as forming part of Basava philosophy makes our lives more meaningful and purposeful. We can thereby become productive as contributing members of the society. The Basava philosophy enshrined in his vachanas would also enable us to nurture the inner impulse for illumination and union with God. When life is paved down to its essence, it is of utmost importance to add life to our years by adopting these virtues. Glory to God in the highest and service to man!
