Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sādin (सादिन्) refers to “riders” (of elephants and horses), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.38 (“Description of the dais or maṇḍapa”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] Beautiful representations of gatekeepers with uplifted bows in their hands appeared like real originals. The statue of Mahālakṣmī at the main entrance appeared like the goddess just emerged from the milk-ocean. It was because all the characteristics were complete. Elephants with their mahouts and horses with their riders (sādin) were so natural that none would say that they were artificial. [...]”.
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.
Sports, Arts and Entertainment (wordly enjoyments)Source: archive.org: Syainika Sastra of Rudradeva with English Translation (art)
Sādin (सादिन्) refers to “horsemen” (employed in hunting), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, “Hunting on horseback (āśvina) represents one of the eight subdivisions of Hunting (mṛgayā). [...] But something should be said in brief about hunting, for the diffusion of its knowledge. [...] Five or six horsemen (sādin) are quite enough for hunting rhinoceros. The horses should be quiet and well-trained in their motion. A horseman should strike the rhinoceros with small darts in quick succession on the back. [...]”.
This section covers the skills and profiencies of the Kalas (“performing arts”) and Shastras (“sciences”) involving ancient Indian traditions of sports, games, arts, entertainment, love-making and other means of wordly enjoyments. Traditionally these topics were dealt with in Sanskrit treatises explaing the philosophy and the justification of enjoying the pleasures of the senses.
General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
Sādin (सादिन्) in the Atharvaveda denotes the ‘rider’ of a horse as opposed to asāda, ‘pedestrian’. An aśvasādin, ‘horse-rider,’ is known to the Vājasaneyi Saṃhitā. The Taittirīya Brāhmaṇa and the Ṛgveda itself contain clear references to horse-riding, while the Aitareya Āraṇyaka refers to mounting a horse sideways. Āśvalāyana knows sādya as a ‘riding horse’ opposed to vahya, a ‘draught animal.’
General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Sādi (सादि) is the reverse of a Nyagrodhaparimaṇḍala body (i.e., the lower part is properly formed, but the upper part is not) and represents the third of the six caturasra-susaṃsthana (“symmetrical bodies”), according to chapter 1.2 [ādīśvara-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra: an ancient Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three illustrious persons in Jainism.—(cf. Samavāyāṅgasūtra 155, p. 150. Sthānāṅgasūtra 495, pp. 357-8.)
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.
