Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Rājendra (राजेन्द्र) refers to a “great king”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.35 (“The story of Padmā and Pippalāda”).—Accordingly, as Dharma (in the guise of a king) said to Padmā (wife of sage Pippalāda): “O beautiful woman, you are Lakṣmī herself; you are charming, you are worthy of a king; you are in the very prime of youth; you will be ever young; you are a lovely sweet lady. I am telling you the truth, O slender-limbed lady. You lack lustre and colour in the presence of the sage Pippalāda who is old and weak. Cast off that ruthless old Brahmin always engaged in penances. Look up to me a great king (rājendra), heroic in sexual dalliance and agitated by Kāma. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Rājendra (राजेन्द्र) is the name of an ancient city, according to chapter 6.3 [ānanda-puruṣapuṇḍarīka-bali-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra: an ancient Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three illustrious persons in Jainism.
Accordingly:—“Upendrasena, lord of the city Rājendra, gave his daughter Padmāvatī to the Viṣṇu Puṇḍarīka. Having heard that she excelled the wife of Anaṅga in beauty, Prativiṣṇu Bali came there to kidnap her. Then Ānanda and Puṇḍarīka attacked Bali puffed up with pride in his strength of arm, despising the strength of the world. [...]”.
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.
