General definition (in Jainism)

Asadudbhavana in Jainism glossary... « previous · [A] · next »

Asadudbhāvana (असदुद्भावन) or Abhūtodbhavana refers to “assertion of what is not” represents a division of untruth (asatya) according to Amitagati’s classification in his 11th-century Śrāvakācāra verses (6.49-54). Examples: “the ātman is immanent” (sarvagata), or “the atman is of the size of a grain of millet or rice” or “the pot is there” (when in fact it is not there).

Amitagati’s classification of these untruths (eg., asat-udbhāvana) 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.

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.
