Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Ācaraṇa (आचरण) or Samayācaraṇa refers to the “practice (of the rule)”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī) said to the God (i.e., Bhairava), “[...] (Tell me) how the practice of the Rule [i.e., samaya-ācaraṇa] is; otherwise, I (cannot) cross over (this fettered state). I will abandon the Liṅga and follow your Command, as it is established by the tradition on the western path. And I will worship the first teachers. I will give up all that is forbidden in the Kaula (teachings), especially what is excluded from the teaching and I will practice in tranquillity (nirvāṇa)”.

[...]”.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Ācaraṇa (आचरण) refers to the “behaviour (of fools)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “[com.—Next he speaks about the behaviour of fools (mūrkhācaraṇa)]. Having abandoned the ruby of discrimination that fulfils all desires the one who is stupid is occupied with ideas that are unconsidered and pleasing. Also the unconsidered and pleasing teachings, which are vile, of those who are bad are practised by people who are controlled by [their] tongue and genitals, etc.”.
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.
