General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Amarapati (अमरपति) is the name of an ancient king from Mahīmaṇḍala and a previous incarnation of Maghavan, according to chapter 4.6 [śrī-maghava-cakravartin-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.
Accordingly:—“In this same Bharata in the city Mahīmaṇḍala there was a king, named Amarapati, in Vāsupūjya’s congregation. Sole lord of the lordless, best of kings, he was attentive to right behavior, like a good Sādhu to right-conduct. He did not strike his people at all, even with a flower-stalk; he only guarded them carefully like a new flower. [...] One day, noble-hearted and wise, he (i.e., Amarapati) abandoned the kingdom like a disease, after he had given fearlessness to all, and became a mendicant. [...]”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
