The resolutions included those which vowed to uphold sovereignty, solidarity and security, while vouching to root out corruption and other menace that hindered the progress of the state and country.  The resolutions are as a follows:

n The Mahasabha is committed to root out corruption and other social evils from the society. The Sabha will always support initiatives that have similar objectives.
n Some of the basic fundamentals of Lingayat - Veerashaiva dharma like Shatsthala, Panchachara, Ashtavarana and Ishtalinga concepts are different from other religions. Recommendation would be made to Indian government to declare Veerashaiva - Lingayata dharma as a separate entity.

* Religious heads should encourage every person in Lingayat community to adopt meaningful religious practices followed as part of the community. Just as all mutts came together despite their differences  practice, for the sake of Maha Adhiveshana, the mutts should also pay attention towards organising the society and comprehensive outlook for the future

*Mahasabha should initiate proper action to create support groups of various communities which will go beyond the borders of community and caste to help every person in need.
* More infrastructre to create better hostels for students in rural and urban areas should be created.
* Independent survey should be taken up to arrive at exact numbers of Veerashaiva-Lingayat community members to be able to seek required facilities from the government, which is the right of every community.   
* Mahasabha Convention should be held once in every six years and a decision regarding the next venue should be announced on the concluding day of every convention.

* A sense of solidarity should now be created by attributing less importance to sub-castes and other seperating factors that will work against the community.
