Biography[ edit ] The biographical details of Allama Prabhu that can be historically verified are scanty, and much that is known about him is from hagiographic legends. He came from a family of temple performers, was himself an expert at playing a type of drum called maddale, and his father was a dance teacher. However, all his poems are non-sectarian and some of them even use straight forward language. A poem of his mocks at Akka Mahadevi for covering her nudity with tresses, while flaunting it to the world at the same time, in an act of rejection of pleasures.
These poems are known to cover an entire range, from devotion to final union with God. In the words of the scholar Ramanujan, to a saint like Allama, "the butterfly has no memory of the caterpillar".
More than half of the poems dwell on the later phase sthala in the life of a saint, most are about union with god and of realization aikya, poems — I saw intellect fleeing, when the heart came. I saw the temple fleeing, when God came. Look, another came to chew close by When the trunk with no head grazes dry leaves, Look, all vanishes, O Guheswara. If the fields are naked, what will they clothe them with? If the devotee is wordly, what will they compare him with? Lord of the caves!
Unless you ride it in full knowledge of its ways the axle will break.
