as sni for sarvanāman,  and syi for saṅkhyā,  and has tried to abridge the wording of Dēvanandin’s sūtras still further.  Though Guṇanandin made several additions to the Jainēndra
Vyākaraṇa, it is known as primarily the work of Dēvanandin. 
..Somadēva’s commentary is on this larger recension of the Jainēndra Vyākaraṇa prepared by Guṇanandin. It is called Laghuvṛitti (or the Smaller Commentary). It explains
the sūtras briefly and does not enter into learned discussions like the earlier Mahāvṛitti of
Abhayanandin. Like the latter, it gives here and there new illustrations for the rules in the
Sūtras which are interesting from the historical and social point of view.  Otherwise, there
is nothing remarkable about this commentary. It is quite lucid and serves well the need of
a beginner. 
The Silahāras of Kolhāpur and their Sāmantas gave liberal patronage to Kannaḍa
authors who flourished in that period. One of those whose work has come down to us is
Karṇapārya, the author of the Kannaḍa work Nēminātha-purāṇa. He flourished in the reign
of the Śilāhāra king Vijayāditya. He has eulogised him and his father Gaṇḍarāditya. One
event which he mentions in connection with Vijayāditya may have some historical significance. Vijayāditya is said to have recued his janma-bhūmi on the Gōmantaśailāgra and
adorned it himself. As we have seen above, the Śilāhāras of Kolhāpur seem to have hailed from
Gōmantha in the Shimogā District of the Karnāṭaka State. Their capital Chandragupti was
situated on the top of the hill. Vijayāditya may have raided the territory and occupied the
native country of his forefathers. Karṇapārya mentions also Pōnnaladēvī, the agramahishī
Karṇapārya appears to have written his work in the temple of Chandraprabha, called
Tribhuvanatilaka at Herle near Hātakaṇagale. This temple is different from that at Ājurikā,
though it bears the same name. It was presided over then by the Jaina Muni Bālachandra
Rāddhānta of Kolhāpur. Karṇapārya mentions also Śubhachandra, who was equally famous
and learned. These Jaina Munis are mentioned also in the inscriptions at Śravaṇa Beḷgoḷ.

While editing the Terdāḷ inscription dated Śaka 1045 (A.D.1123-44) (Ind. Ant., Vol. XIV, pp. 14 f.),
K.B. Pathak put forward the suggestion that Śrutakīrti Traividya, the disciple of Māghanandi-Saiddhāntika of the Rūpanārāyaṇa temple at Kolhāpur, was identical with the homonymous author of the kāvya
Rāghavapāṇḍavīya mentioned by the Kannaḍa poet Abhinava-Pampa in his Pampa-Rāmāyaṇa, and that he
was the same as the poet Dhanañjaya known as the author of that kāvya (also known as Dvisandhāna).
This view has been adopted by Winternitz, Keith and S.K. De in their histories of Sanskrit literature,
but it has been disproved by A. Venkatasubbaiah on cogent grounds [J.B.B.R.A.S., Vol. III (New Series),
pp.134 f.]. Śrutakīrti Traividya of the Rūpanārāyaṇa temple was different from his namesake praised by
Abhinava-Pampa because their guru-paramparās are not identical. Secondly, Dhanañjaya, the author of
the extant Rāghavapāṇḍavīya (alias Dvisandhāna) kāvya cannot be identified with either of them as he flouished much earlier, in circa A.D. 750-800. (See my Literary and Historical Studies in Indology, pp. 24 f). In fact, it is not certain that Śrutakīrti Traividya wrote a kāvya of the name Rāghavapāṇḍaviya at all. The only evidence for it is furnished by two verses cited in his praise from the Pampa-Rāmāyaṇa in
an inscription at Śravaṇa Beḷgoḷ; but they appear to have been wrongly cited there. If he had written a
kāvya of such a type, he would have certainly found mention in the Kannada kāvya Nēminātha-purāṇa composed at Kolhāpur in the same age. See below.
