Sarāga (सराग) refers to “(the application of) red dye”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.21. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] When they [viz., Śiva’s Gaṇas (attendants)] went away and He was left alone with Satī, Śiva rejoiced much and sported with her. [...] Sometimes by the application of red dye (sarāga) Śiva made her naturally red feet completely red.”.
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: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1
Sarāga (सराग, “with attachment”) refers to one of the two types of right faith (samyagdarśana).—What is right belief with attachment (sarāga samyag-darśana)? Expression of praśama or śama (calmness / serenity / tranquility); saṃvega (absence of the fear of the miseries of transmigration); anukampā (compassion) and āstikya (belief in life here and after and the existence of soul) is the right belief with attachment.
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.
