The term Jainism which means faith of a Jaina is derived from the word Jina which means the conqueror or the victorious. Jina means who conquers the five senses, destroys all the karmas, and attains Omniscience or Sarvajnahood. The person who performs tapas or yoga attains such a self-realization and omniscient knowledge or kevala jnana. After attaining self-realization and omniscience, the Jina spends the rest of his time in preaching the Dharma to the mass of human beings, which would enable the ordinary mortals to reach summum bonum of life. Because of this noble task of showing the path of spiritual realization or Moksamarga, Jina is also called Tirthankara.
