Civaka Cintamani

Civaka-cintamani (transliterated with innumerable variations) is a classical Tamil language epic poem. It is a Jain religious epic, authored by the Jain saint Tirutakkatevar.

It belongs to the Sangam tradition of Tamil literature, and is considered one of the five great Tamil epics. In its form, it anticipates the Ramayana of Kamban. Civaka-cintamani was well received at the Chola court, and has since been admired for its poetic form, appealing story-line, and theological message. The story concerns a hero who through his virtue rises to become king, only to renounce his high station and pursue a life of religious merit.
