Agṛhīta (अगृहीत) refers to an aspect of mithyātva (false belief) as defined by Āśādhara in his 13th century Sāgāra-dharmāmṛta. Accordingly, agṛhīta refers to an inherent, non-acquired quality found even in the lowest stages of living organisms. Mithyātva refers to the direct opposite of samyaktva, and is defined by Hemacandra in his 12th century Yogaśāstra verse 2.17 as belief in false divinities, false gurus, and false scriptures.

Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being.
