Kulagṛha (कुलगृह) refers to a “court-house”, 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. Accordingly, “[...] Then the Lord established measures of bulk, weight, linear measure, and jewelers’ weight in objects; boats; and gems, etc., threaded. At that time was instituted court-procedure—plaintiff and defendant with king, magistrate, court-house [viz., kulagṛha], and witnesses. [...]”.

Note: In parallel passages, rājakulakaraṇa, the scribe before whom depositions were made, occurs.

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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
