This work, 'A Survey of Virashaiva Religion and Literature' is an attempt at picking up randomly and putting together a collector's choices in the history of a distinguished religion and its literature principally found written and documented in Kannada, though Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu and Marathi too have their share in it. The Vachanas produced in Kannada by the Shiva Sharanas of the 12th century are a unique literary genre in Indian literature. This form which the sharanas invented to share their experiential readings into the mundane and the divine is believed to be rare and singular in world literature. This historic event culminating in the assembly of countless saintly men and women acted as a catalyst and perennial source of inspiration for hundreds of poets, writers, philosophers, folk-singers, saints, savants and mystics down the ages.
