The Dabestan-e Mazaheb, written around 1655 CE, is a text that describes various religions and philosophies the author encountered.[1] Its Section 11 is dedicated to Jainism. It states: "Similar to the dervishes of both classes (Monk and Jatis) is a third sect, called Mahá-átma; group separated from the Oswal Jains, have the dress and appearance of Jatis; however, do not pluck their hair with tweezers, but cut it. They live the social life and spread the teaching of Mahavir and other Jain Tirthankars in the society. They accumulate money, cook their meals in their houses, drink cold water, and take to them a wife."[citation needed] The term Mahatma was thus used for priests/scholars who were not celibate.
