General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Ādatta (आदत्त) refers to “taking a hold of” (the interior of a body), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Indeed, alone, the self roams about in the impassable wilderness of the world which is full of great misfortune [and] inflamed by the fire of suffering. The same [self] always takes hold of (ādatta) the interior of a body entirely to experience the good and bad result developed from its own action by itself”.
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.

Ādatta.—(IE 8-5), adattā (EI 33), ādattā (EI 28), a tax of uncertain import; probably, interest or fine on arrears of tax. Note: ādatta is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
