Sannaiah and Rame Gowda, , Mysore , Mysore. Many editions which have published this epic in parts and a few abridged versions are not mentioned here. Jaimini Bharata was one of the most popular classics in Kannada during the nineteenth and the former half of the twentieth century. It was recited in many villages with the help of Gamaka tradition and mnay episodes in the work were perennial favorites even for dramatisation.
Jaimini Bharata is a re creation of the Sanskrit work written by the sage Jaimini. This is not a verbatim translation by any strech of imagination and Lakshmeesha has made use of the poetic freddom to omit dry passages and include quite a few dimensions of his own.
This work focuses on the story of Mahaharata after the ascension of Dharmaraya to the throne in the aftermath of the great war of Mahabharata. Actually Lakshmeesha has srived successfully to re establish the greatness of Krishna and to cut down arrogant warriors such as Arjuna to human size. Arujuna confronts many heroes who are more valiant than Arjuna but have absolute respect for Krishna.
Sudhanava, Youvanashva, Hamsadhvaja, Chandrhasa and a host of others bring Arjuna to the brink of defeat. However he is saved by the grace of Krishna and learns the lesson of his life.
Hence, Jaimini Bharata is essentially a product of the bhakti movement where Valour becomes secondary. But it is more of a leisurely stroll rather than a hectic adventure.
Lakshmeesha knows the art of narration and has a command over language. His sense of humour is brought out in the episode of Chandi and Uddhalaka. The story of Chandrahasa is another favorite with Kannada readers.
The art of the poets is particualarly incandescent in his use of simelies and his abilty to create melody that is almost akin to music. Anantarangachar, Prasaranga, Mysore.
The Lost Mahabharata of Jaimini
Some historians believe he was a native of Devanur in modern Kadur taluk, Chikkamagaluru district , Karnataka state. It is claimed that his family deity was "Lakshmiramana" a form of Hindu God Vishnu to whom he dedicated his writing. Devanur was called by multiple names in his writing; Surapura and Girvanapura. Some historians believe that Lakshmisa was an Advaitin or a Smartha Brahmin believer of monistic philosophy of the Bhagavata sect because the poet has invoked the names of Hindu God Shiva , his consort Parvati and son Ganapati in the beginning of his writing. Scholars have assigned him various dates, the earliest being c. Whereas, authors who do mention Lakshmisa regularly in their writings are from the 18th century.
