General definition (in Jainism)
Nāgasamudra (नागसमुद्र) is the name of an ocean (samudra) surrouding the continent of Nāgadvīpa (or simply Nāga), according to Jain cosmology. The Nāgasamudra and Nāgadvīpa are situated in the middle-world (madhyaloka), which contains innumerable concentric continents (dvīpa), each surrounded by their own ocean. The middle-world, as opposed to the upper-world (adhaloka) and the lower-world (ūrdhvaloka), is the only world where humans can be born. Nāgasamudra is also known as plainly Nāga.
Nāgasamudra is recorded in ancient Jaina canonical texts dealing with cosmology and geography of the universe. Examples of such texts are the Saṃgrahaṇīratna in the Śvetāmbara tradition or the Tiloyapannatti and the Trilokasāra in the Digambara tradition.Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
