In Jainism

General definition (in Jainism)

Source: archive.org: The Jaina Iconography

Dhūrjaṭī (धूर्जटी) is the name of a Yoginī mentioned in various Jaina manuscripts, often being part of a list of sixty-four such deities. How the cult of the Tantrik Yoginīs originated among the vegetarian Jainas is unknown. The Yoginīs (viz., Dhūrjaṭī) are known as attendants on Śiva or Pārvatī. But in the case of Jainism, we may suppose, as seen before that they are subordinates to Kṣetrapāla, the chief of the Bhairavas.

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.

Dhūrjaṭi (धूर्जटि) is an epithet of Śiva, as mentioned in the “Plate of Lalitaśūradeva” (853-854 A.D.). Accordingly, “...through the grace of the holy Dhūrjaṭi (Śiva) who has destroyed the strength of the dense darkness that robs all discrimination, by removing it with the shower of filaments which are the abundant wide-spread pure rays of the lotuses which are his feet, red with the intoxication from imbibing the bright lustre of the lights that bring about a uniform white colour, which are the crores of the points of the beautiful crowns and coronets on the innumerable heads of all the lords of the gods, demons and men, bowed down under the weight of the burden of devotion; (and) whose matted hair is washed by the Ganges”.

This inscribed copper plate (mentioning Dhūrjaṭi) is preserved in the temple of Yogabadarī (one of the Pañcabadarī) at Pāṇḍukeśvar (Pāṇḍukeśvara). The date is estimated 22nd December 853 A.D. and it records the grant of some land which was in the possession of a person named Denduvāka and was lying within the jurisdiction of the administrative unit called Thappalasāri forming a part of the viṣaya or district of Kārttikeyapura.
