Taking up (ādāya) then the energizing (substances), O fair one, he who does all things, was conjoined with the goddess.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
1) Adaya (अदय) refers to “merciless”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “When Yama is an opponent of embodied souls, all elephants, horses, men, and soldiers and the powers of mantras and medicines become useless. While any person does not hear the merciless (adaya) roaring of Yama’s lion, in that time he leaps about having pleasure in only [his own] power”.
2) Ādāya (आदाय) refers to “having taken hold of” (one’s body in this life), according to the Jñānārṇava.—Accordingly, “Having taken hold of (ādāya) this body in this life, suffering is endured by you. Hence, that [body] is certainly a completely worthless abode. Whatever difficulties arise from life, they are each endured here by the embodied soul, only having taken hold of the body powerfully”.
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.
