General definition (in Jainism)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): (Jainism)
Asatkalpa (असत्कल्प) refers to “that which does not exist”, according to verse 12.42 of Hemacandra’s Yogaśāstra.—Accordingly, “At the time of the arising of the no-mind state, the Yogin experiences the body, which is as though it does not exist (asatkalpa), as though [it were] separated, burned, flying up and dissolved”.
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.
