General definition (in Jainism)
Siddhārthapura (सिद्धार्थपुर) is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra during his tenth year of spiritual-exertion.—From the Anārya Lāḍha region the Lord was going to ‘Siddhārthapura’ and from there to ‘Kūrmagrāma’ and Gośālaka was with him, too. From Siddhārthapura, the Lord reached Vaiśālī.Source: HereNow4u: Lord Śrī Mahāvīra
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.
