Harisena (Jain monk)
|Born||10th century CE|
Harisena was a tenth century Digambara Jain monk. His origin is traced to those monks who had stayed in the north during the supposed famine and had been prevailed upon by their lay followers to cover their private parts with a strip of cloth (ardhaphalaka) while begging for alms.
He wrote Brhatkathakosha.
