It is Gurukumar Shivayogis who did most of the things that Gandhiji considered ideal a few years before Gandhiji came to India," Padma Shri awardee Girish Kasaravalli said. “Hanagalla Sri Gurukumar Shivayogi has a history of Veerashaiva; No study. It has its code, No system. There is culture; Communication facilities are insufficient. There is a vision, No guidance. There is a legacy, No effect. There is a feeling; No implementation. There is a theory; Achievement - no achievements. There is society, No organization! Remembering these ironic days before independence brings tears. Shri Hanagal Kumareshwar came to the society as a sanjeevini to make all these impossibilities possible in such a complex situation.” Hanagal Gurukumar Shivayogis have shown that the matha should be illuminated from the ghat rather than the other way around.
He set up the new Manvantara with a strong basis at the start of the 19th century. He further added. “Mastakabhisheka celebration for Viragi of Gommatagiri is a celebration of community building. Education for all. Music education for the blind. Establishment of All India Veerashaiva (Lingayat) Mahasabha. Women's Education and Women's Empowerment. Establishment of Shivayoga Mandir. Collection of vachana tadoles and establishment of a library. Modern farming practices and establishment of Goshala. Construction of Vibhuti and Ishta Lingam. The establishment of a cotton factory. Establishment of Ayurvedic Clinic. Opening of cinemas, ban on animal sacrifice. Sri Gurukumar Shivayogi has made many possibilities possible and is proof that one person can do so much in his lifetime. Those who wiped away the tears of the society and spread their fragrance like sandalwood to build a strong society."
