General definition (in Jainism)Source: Google Books: Cultural and Religious Heritage of India: Jainism
Amāsa (अमास) refers to the third day of the Divālī festival: the day on which Mahāvīra passed to mokṣa, when all the eighteen confederate kings made an illumination [...].—On the first day (dhanaterasa) the Śvetāmbara women polish their jewellery and ornaments in honour of Lakṣmī, on the second (kālīcaudaśa) they propitiate evil spirits by placing sweetmeats at cross-roads, and on the third (amāsa) all Jaina worship their account—books-Śāradā-pūjā.
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.
