Abstract:The early Vijayanagara kings provided a great impetus to Shastraic studies. In the reign of Harihara and Bukka, Sayana composed a corpus of commentaries on vedic literature. During the 15th century, the Vijayanagara kings were influenced by the advaita philosophy, Shaivism, Vaishnavism, and Jainism. Vaishnavism became particularly popular under the Saluva and Tuluva dynasties, with the Vitthala temple in Hampi as its nucleus.
