Aparigṛhītā-gamana (अपरिगृहीता-गमन) refers to “intercourse with an unmarried woman” and represents one of the transgressions (aticāra) of the Brahma-vrata (vow of celibacy).—For Siddhasena Gaṇin (in his commentary on the Tattvārtha-sūtra 7.23) this designation covers intercourse with any “ownerless” woman whether she be a whore, or a married woman whose husband is absent, or any other woman outside the control of her family. The same acceptation is given to the term by Haribhadra, Abhayadeva, Yaśodeva, Hemacandra, and Siddhasena Sūri. It is an aticāra of sva-dāra-santosa.

A Digambara interpretation is available only from Cāmuṇḍarāya (in his Caritrasāra p. 6), who holds that this offence is committed with an “ownerless” woman who is a wanton. Devendra (in his Śrāddha-dina-kṛtya part II, p. 95) understands by a-parigṛhītā “a widow”.

context information

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.
