India history and geography
Mediums (of transmission of occult religion) were known as Vidyādhara godlings, according to the Jain occult religion and Śabaravidyā cult practices and beliefs of ancient India, as depicted in the Kathās (narrative poems) such as Uddyotanasūri in his 8th-century Kuvalayamālā (a Prakrit Campū, similar to Kāvya poetry).—It appears that during the 8th century, in the time of Uddyotanasūri, Jaina occult religion and mysticism brought into close touch such practices as Śabaravidyā of which Vidyādhara godlings were considered medium of transmission (133.9-10). The shrine of Ṛṣabhanātha became a centre for performance of sādhanā and for the perfection of Vidyās.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
