General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Abhidheya (अभिधेय) refers to “(that which is) to be spoken of”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “If it is exceedingly desired to avoid descending into hell or solely to obtain the great power of the lord of the 30 gods, if the ultimate aim of a man is desirable (prārthanīya), then, pray, what else is to be spoken of (abhidheya)? You must perform the doctrine. [Thus ends the reflection on] the doctrine”.
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.
