The Śāntipurāṇam [SP] or Purāṇa‧Cūḍāmaṇi is a hagiography of the 16th tīrthaṅkara Śāntinātha written in the ‘campū’ style by Ponna. The last verse of each canto (āśvāsa) has a signature phrase ‘Saujanya‧kandâṅkuraṉ’. The SP narrates the series of births of the fifteen previous of the tīrthaṅkara Śāntinātha.
Some of the phrasing and imagery in the descriptive passages imitate Paṃpa’s Ādipurāṇa. The Śāntipurāṇam mentions two other texts by Ponna - Bhuvanaikarāmâbhyudaya and Gatapratyāgata, and must have been written after these.
