General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Bhūpāla (भूपाल) is the name of an ancient king from Viśāla, according to chapter 6.4 [subhūma-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:—“There was a king, named Bhūpāla, who observed the vows of a Kṣatriya, in the city Viśāla in this same Bharatakṣetra. One day he was defeated in a battle by many enemies who had united. For a crowd is very strong. Defeated by his enemies, his face blackened by the disgrace, he became a mendicant under Muni Sambhūta. As a result of penance he made a nidāna which had as its object the enjoyment of army and treasure, fasted to death, and became a god in Mahāśukra.”.
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.
India history and geographySource: What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras
Bhūpāla, bearing the official title “chief secretary”, is an officer of king Mārasiṃha, according to the “Miraj plates of Mārasiṃha”. Accordingly, “This royal order has been written by the Chief Secretary Bhūpāla by the order of his king. And Chikkadeva has secured it”.
These plates (mentioning Bhūpāla) were discovered at Miraj and deposited with the Bombay Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. It records the grant by Mārasiṃha of the village Kuṇṭavāḍa, situated on the southern bank of the Kṛṣṇaverṇā. It was made on the occasion of the Uttarāyaṇa Saṅkrānti which occurred on Thursday, the seventh tithi of the bright fortnight of Pauṣa in the Saka year 980.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
