Although Seethalai Sathanar's reference here is not much of a relevance, as far as I am aware he talks about Buddhism and not Jainism. In Manimegalai, Seethalai sathanar talks a lot about Jainism and its greatness The above sentence may not be accurate. Thanks. Wiki San Rozetalk 15:11, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Adikal does not imply that he was a Jain, Adikal here is a contraction of "Perumal Adikal" meaning that he was a member of the Royal Family. Also please note the names of Siva saints like Appar Adikal & Naminanthi Adikal who were not Jains. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:48, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Plus even within Silappathikaram, Kannaki refers to Kovalan as Adikal, and we know withot any doubt that Kovalan was not a jain or monk! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:14, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
