Asaṃmūḍha (असंमूढ) refers to an “expert in restraint” [?], according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “In abiding-in-objects [meditation], there are to be known five acts of concentration described by the heroes [of the past]. The one who is restrained who is expert in them (asaṃmūḍhasaṃyamī yāsv asaṃmūḍho) cuts through the bonds of life”.

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.
