General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Dāmagaṇḍa (दामगण्ड) refers to a “garland-cluster”; cf. Śrīdāmagaṇḍa (golden ornament” or a “ball with beautiful garlands”) according to chapter 1.2 [ādīśvara-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.
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.
