Basavanna was a 12th century philosopher, a Kannada social reformer and a renowned Shaivite. He is said to be an incarnation of Nandikeshwar by his followers. Basavanna is said to have found the Lingayata sect, a Shaivite sect which rejects the authority of the Vedas and downplays caste-system.

Since he's considered an incarnation of Nandikeshwar by his followers, I expect them to believe that he had performed certain miracles in his life. So are there any instances in his biographies of him having performed certain miracles?

  • 'too broad' is a poor reason to close your recent Q's concerning miracles performed by acharyas. 'too broad' applies to gods like Indra, Shiva, Vishnu etc. where they performed 100's of miracles. It's silly to apply that reason to acharyas. Your original post is good as such, no edit is necessary. I voted to re-open. We have a lot of noob users wasting other users' time in the process of closing/re-opening Q's. – sv. Mar 16 '18 at 16:12
