General definition (in Jainism)
Sūryasamudra (सूर्यसमुद्र) is the name of an ocean (samudra) surrouding the continent of Sūryadvīpa (or simply Sūrya), according to Jain cosmology. The Sūryasamudra and Sūryadvīpa are situated in the middle-world (madhyaloka), which contains innumerable concentric continents (dvīpa), each surrounded by their own ocean. The middle-world, as opposed to the upper-world (adhaloka) and the lower-world (ūrdhvaloka), is the only world where humans can be born. Sūryasamudra is also known as plainly Sūrya.
Sūryasamudra is recorded in ancient Jaina canonical texts dealing with cosmology and geography of the universe. Examples of such texts are the Saṃgrahaṇīratna in the Śvetāmbara tradition or the Tiloyapannatti and the Trilokasāra in the Digambara tradition.Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
