General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Śaṅkulā (शङ्कुला) refers to “pegs”—The ordinary meaning of śaṅkulā is ‘betel-scissors,’ but this is so unsuitable here that perhaps it is a derivative of śaṃku, “a stick” or “peg”, used in a child’s game. In Gujarati -lo is a diminutive suffix.
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.
