Nandapāṭaka (नन्दपाटक) is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra during his third year of spiritual-exertion.—After Svarṇakhala, the Lord reached the “Brahmin village” divided into two parts in the name of the important persons there, “Nanda” and “Upananda”, as Nandapāṭaka and Upanandpāṭaka. Lord Mahāvīra went to Nandapāṭaka for alms to Nanda’s house. There he got curd rice. Gośālaka went to Upananda’s house at Upanandapāṭaka and received stale food at the hands of the house cleaner, which he refused.

General definition book cover
context information

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.
