General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Khādya (खाद्य, “fruit”) refers to “solid food” and represents one of the four types of food, as mentioned in chapter 1.1 [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.—Accordingly, “[...] together with abandonment of all censurable activities the noble man [i.e., Mahābala] renounced the four kinds of food [viz., khādya]. Constantly immersed in the pool of nectar of abstract meditation, he, like a lotus-bed, did not fade at all. He, the crest-jewel of the noble, had undiminished beauty, as if he had been eating food and taking drink”.
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.
