[Pavapuri in Jainism glossaries]

Pāvāpurī (पावापुरी) is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra during his 30th Year as Kevalī.—Leaving Rājagṛha, the Lord arrived at the hall of scribes of king Hastipāla at Pāvāpurī. The gathering immediately became a samavaśaraṇa. Addresing a huge gathering of people, the Lord said that life is dear to all living beings and so is happy and sweet behaviour.

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.
