General definition (in Jainism)

Source: HereNow4u: Lord Śrī Mahāvīra

Tambāya (तम्बाय) is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra during his sixth year of spiritual-exertion.—From ‘Kadalī Samāgama’ and ‘Jambū Saṇḍa’ the Lord arrived near ‘Tambāya’. At that time the elder monk of the Pārśva tradition, Nandiṣeṇa, was staying there. Gośālaka argued with him, too. From ‘Tambāya’ the Lord went to ‘Kūviya’ where he was arrested due to the suspicion of his being a spy.

context information

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.
