Binduṣeṇa (बिन्दुषेण) and Induṣeṇa are the twin-sons of Abhinanditā and king Śrīṣeṇa of Ratnapura (previous incarnation of Śānti-nātha), according to chapter 5.1 [śāntinātha-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 the course of time, Queen Abhinanditā, experiencing unbroken sensuous pleasure with her husband, conceived an embryo. She saw in a dream a sun and moon placed in her lap; and her husband said, ‘You will have a distinguished pair of sons’. When the time was completed, Queen Abhinanditā bore twin sons, not inferior to the sun and moon in brilliance. King Śrīṣeṇa named his two sons Induṣeṇa and Binduṣeṇa at a big festival. ”.

context information

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.
