Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Saṅgrāma (सङ्ग्राम) refers to “battle”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.9 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura said to the Gods: “[...] Doing such sinful acts frequently Viṣṇu and Śiva are already deficient in splendour and their prowess is spent out. You will never gain victory in the battle (saṅgrāma) by relying on them. Why then did you foolishly come here to lose your lives? These two, always seeking selfish ends, do not know what is virtue. O gods, without virtue every rite becomes futile. [...]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index

Saṃgrāma (संग्राम) refers to a “battle”, according to the Mahābhārata 10.8.64–68.—Accordingly, “Good sir, they saw her, Kālarātri, standing, smiling, alone, blue-black in hue, with red mouth and eyes, garlands and unguents of crimson, red robes, a noose in one hand, a peacock feather [in her hair], binding men, horses and elephants with her horrifying fetters while she stood, capturing many headless ghosts trapped in her noose, leading those asleep in their dreams to other Nights. And at all times the best soldiers saw the son of Droṇa slaughtering. From the time when the battle (saṃgrāma) between the Kuru and Pāṇḍava armies began, they saw [both] that evil spirit and the son of Droṇa. The son of Droṇa later felled those who had first been struck by this divinity [Kālarātri], terrorizing all creatures while shouting out ferocious bellows”.

Likewise, [success comes to those who] obtain the Earth and a [battle] wound. Victory in battle and crossing the battle field (saṅgrāma-taraṇa), which is an ocean of blood and blazes like a place of the departed [are auspicious]. [Someone who] commands heroes and persons who rule [with] victory [are fortunate signs]. [...]”.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Saṃgrāma (संग्राम) refers to a “battle”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “That which is evidently cessation of action causing the cycle of rebirth is to be considered as the mental stopping of the influx of karma by those who know about that from the most excellent scripture. Like the hero who is well-clad in armour is not pierced by arrows in the difficulty of battle [com.—in the middle of a battle (saṃgrāmamadhye)], the one who has subdued his senses, whose self is restrained, is not pierced by arrows which are made of non-restraint”.
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.
