PostSubject: The Veerashaiva writers,   Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:39 am

The Veerashaiva writers, devotees of the Hindu god Shiva, wrote about his 25 forms in their expositions of Shaivism. Vaishnava authors wrote treatments of the Hindu epics, the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Bhagavata.[28] Breaking away from the old Jain tradition of using the champu metre for writing Kannada literature, Harihara penned poems in the ragale metre in Siva-ganada-ragalegalu (1160). His nephew Raghavanka established the shatpadi tradition by writing a unique version of the story of King Harishchandra in Harishchandra Kavya (1200). Sisumayana introduced the sangatya metre in his Anjanacharita and Tripuradahana (1235).[29][30] However, some scholars continued to employ Sanskritic metres such as champu (Ramachandra Charitapurana),[31] shataka (100-line verses, Pampa sataka)[17] and ashtaka (eight-line verses, Mudige ashtaka).[32]
