General definition (in Jainism)
Agārī (अगारी, “householder”) or Agārin according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 7.19, “the ‘householder’ and the ‘homeless ascetic’ are the two kinds of votaries”. What is meant by householder /laity (agārī) or votary with a home? Those who have not given up the home are called householder votary or votary with homes.
A householder (agārī) does not observe vows completely. Why he then is called a votary (vrati) also? Like a person who lives in a small part of a city is called a city dweller; similarly a person who observes vows even in a small manner is called a votary.Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 7: The Five Vows
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.
