General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: The Jaina Iconography
Mitrasenā (मित्रसेना) is the mother of Aranātha: the eighteenth of twenty-four Tīrthaṃkaras or Jinas, commonly depicted in Jaina iconography.—Aranātha’s father was a Kṣatriya prince of the lunar race, he was known by the name of Sudarśana. The Jina’s mother was queen Mitrasenā. Their capital was at Hastināpura, where Aranātha was born. This Jina also became an emperor. He obtained the name of Ara because his mother saw a dream of a wheel (Ara) of jewels.
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.
