“Then the border vassals on all sides, very angry like a lot of snakes, were estranged from Puṣkalapāla. For the purpose of subduing them like snakes, the powerful king Vajrajaṅgha, summoned by him, set out. Śrīmatī, whose devotion was unshakeable, also set out with King Vajrajaṅgha, like Paulomī with Biḍaujas”.

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.
