Description
About the Book

Kattiyangaran, the treacherous minister of Hemangada, kills the royal family and usurps the throne. Queen Vijaya escapes the slaughter. She gives birth to a son and puts his father’s royal ring upon his finger. The child grows up to be Prince Jivaka.

Jivaka has many adventures and regains the throne. But the core of the book becomes apparent when, at the end of the story, a weary Jivaka decides to renounce his kingdom and become a Jain monk.

The story is taken from Jivaka Chintamani, and epic poem in Tamil. It was written by a young jain monk, Tirutakkatevar, and is considered one of the classics of Sangam Literature (300 BC – 300 AD).

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
