Samada (समद) refers to the “passionate (women)”, which is mentioned in verse 3.15 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Passionate [viz., samada] (and) lovely women with exuberant thighs, breasts, and buttocks take away the cold, their body being hot with incense, saffron, and youth. [...]”.
Note: The attribute Samada [samadāḥ] (“passionate”) also translatable as “intoxicated”, has been replaced by rgyags (“fat, buxom”).

Samada (समद) refers to “ruttish (elephants)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “This most powerful [and] cruel death devours against their will the life of those who possess a body that has settled in the middle world, in hell, in the world of Brahmā, in Indra’s abode, in the middle of the ocean, inside the forest, at all quarters of the globe, on a mountain-peak, in a place difficult of access on account of fire, forest, cold, darkness, thunderbolts [and] swords, or in [a place] crowded with a troop of ruttish elephants (samada-karin-ghaṭāsaṃkaṭa)”.
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.
