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).
