“Kanankadasa inspired many lives as he created social awareness with his songs. A memorandum has been submitted by the Kanaka Sadhbhavana Jyothi Rathayathra Samithi to build a temple in remembrance of Kanaka which will be soon initiated,” he added.

Shree Yogeshwaranand Swamiji, president of Ramakrishna Yogashrama said that the teachings of Kanakadasa are an inspiration to many. “If Kanakadasa would have been born as a Brahmin, he would have been known to everyone; his teachings have inspired many,” he added.

Pramod Madhwaraj, Parliamentary Secretary of Revenue Department and MLA of Udupi constituency, said that his father Malpe Madhwaraj, in 1968 had erected the idol of Kanadasa in the presence of Shree Vishwesha Teertha Swamiji who was then the Paryaya Swamiji. “Every effort will be made to construct Kanakana Gudi and CM Siddaramaih will inaugurate the Gudi,” he added.
