General definition (in Jainism)Source: academia.edu: Tessitori Collection I
Vuccarāja (वुच्चराज) or Vucarāja is the author of the Mayaṇajujjha (narrating stories from Jain literature), which is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—The Mayaṇajujjha was composed in VS 1589 (1532 CE) as stated by the author. Another dated work of his is the Santoṣa jayatilaku (VS 1591). The Udine manuscript is among fairly early ones of the work. But it seems to contain a number of inaccuracies. The name of the scribe and the year have been deliberately erased. The name of the author is given here as Vucarāja, as Budharāja in Jain gurjar Kavio and as Vuccarāja yet elsewhere. Other forms of his name are Vūcarāja, Valha, Vīlhā, Valhaṇa.
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.
