Adipurana written in Champu style, a mixed form of prose and verse is a Kannadaversion of the Sanskrit work by Jinasena and details the life of Rishabha, the first Tirthankara of jainism, in sixteen cantos. The work focusses in his own unique style the pilgrimage of a soul to perfection and attainment of mukti. In the work, Pampa describes the struggle for power and control over the entire world of two brothers Bharata and Bahubali, sons of Vrishabhadeva. While Bahubali wins, he renounces the worldly pursuits in favor of his brother. Many Jaina Puranas of the middle Ages found a role model in this work
