The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
General definition (in Jainism)
Khaḍgī (खड्गी) is the name of an ancient city, according to chapter 6.1 [kunthusvāmi-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 very Jambūdvīpa, in the East Videhas, in the fair province Āvarta which surpassed heaven in beauty, in the capital, Khaḍgī, King Siṃhāvaha was the receptacle of boundless virtues, the crest of the leaders in justice. He was like a mountain of justice, like an axe to crime, like the family-home of law, like the native land of intelligence. [...]”.
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.
