General definition (in Jainism)
Apriya (अप्रिय) refers to “speech that is tactlessly hurtful” and represents a type of nindya (reprehensible speech), which itself is a division of untruth (asatya) according to Amitagati’s classification in his 11th-century Śrāvakācāra verses (6.49-54). These asatyas are related to the satya-vrata (vow of truth). Speech that is tactlessly hurtful (apriya) as, for example, in alluding to a person’s physical deformity. Nothing should be said to cause embarrassment, anxiety, or unhappiness to others.
Amitagati’s classification of these untruths (e.g., nindya and apriya) is given not only by the Digambaras Amitagati and Amṛtacandra but also in the Yoga-śāstra where the treatment goes back directly to Siddhasena’s commentary on the Tattvārtha-sūtra (verse 7.9) and indeed to the Śvetāmbara Bhāṣya.
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.
