General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Ācāmla (आचाम्ल), or ācāmāmla, is dry food, such as rice, pulse, or flour-cake without ghī or dressing. Ācāmāmlavardhamāna is a series of fasts broken by such meals. The whole penance lasts 14 years, 3 months, and 20 days.
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.
