Source: HereNow4u: Lord Śrī Mahāvīra

Kollāga (कोल्लाग) is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra.—The next day the Lord left from there and reached the vicinity of Kollāga. There he broke his first fast at the home of a Brahmin named Bahula, with rice mixed with clarified butter and sugar. The sky resounded with the echo of “aho dānam, aho dānam”. The gods showered the five auspicious things to express the glory of the giving. After leaving Kollāga, the Lord reached the Morāka province.

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.
