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.

Nāndīpura (नान्दीपुर) or Nāndīpurī.—It was identified by Buhler with an old fort of that name, just outside the Jhadeswar gate to the east of Broach. Pandit Bhagwanlal Indraji, however, suggested that Nāndīpurī was identical with Nandod in the Broach district, situated on the Karjan river in the old Rajpipla State. The statement in the Anjaneri Plates* of Jayabhaṭa III that Nāndīpurī-viṣaya included the village Toraṇaka (modern Toran. two miles to the north of Nandod) proves the correctness of the suggestion.
