Notes on the Religion and Literature of Amoghvarsha


  • Amoghvarsha is acknowledged by history specialists for an affection for peace and a loathing of war; however it is evident he had no way out. He belittled Jainism especially the Digambara organization, so much that he is mixed up for a Jain himself. 

  • He never surrendered love of the Hindu divine beings and goddesses. His court was loaded with researchers, Jaina and Hindu; Jainasena composed the Adipurana, Mahaviracharya was the creator of Ganitasarasangraha. Amoghavritti sustaining the ruler's name was composed by a Sakatayana. 

  • The ruler did not fall behind in scholarly exertion. He is said to have composed the Kavirajamarga, an early Kannada chip away at poetics; it is conceivable that his court artist Sri Vijaya composed it and fathered it on the lord. A Sanskrit work, Prasnottararatnamala is ascribed to him and in this work there is a reference to the ruler's abandonment. 

  • He regularly left the issues of state in the hands of the authorities and resigned to be in the organization of religious austerity and friars. There was maybe a last surrender when goverment was assumed control by his child Krishna II.
