General definition (in Jainism)
Nathuram Premi (1956: 229) gives a brief history of Malkhed, a village with two ruined Jaina temples, in the Gulbarga District of Karnataka state. Malkhed was the capital of the Rāṣṭrakūṭa King Kṛṣṇa III in 966 CE. Around this time, the famous (Śaiva turned) Jaina poet Puṣpadanta, the author of the Apabhraṃśa Prakrit Mahāpurāṇa, mentions how this city (Mānyakheṭa/ Maṇṇakheḍa) was looted and burned by the Paramāra King Siyaka-Gurjararāja in Śaka 894 (=972 CE).Source: HereNow4U: CoJS Newsletter Issue 12 March 2017
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.
