General definition (in Jainism)Source: HereNow4u: Lord Śrī Mahāvīra
Maṇḍita (मण्डित) is the name of the sixth gaṇadhara (group-leader) of Mahāvīra.—Maṇḍita was a Brahmin of the Vaśiṣṭha-gotra and a resident of the Maurya province. His father’s name was Dhanadeva and his mother’s name was Vijayādevī. Obtaining clarifications for his doubt regarding the relationship between the soul and the world, impressed, he along with his 350 students took initiation. He was 53 years old at that time. After observing the mendicant's vows for 14 years, he attained pure knowledge at the age of 67 and after being a kevalī for 16 years, observing a fast, he attained liberation at the Guṇaśīla-caitya during the lifetime of the Lord at the age of 83 years.
All these gaṇadharas (for example, Maṇḍita) were Brahmins by caste and Vedic scholars. After taking initiation, they all studied the 11 Aṅgas. Hence, all of them had the knowledge of the 14 pūrvas and possessed special attainments (labdhis).
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.
