General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Jaina Yoga
Atilobha (अतिलोभ) refers to one of the transgressions (aticāra) of the Aparigraha-vrata (vow of non-attachment), according to Samantabhadra in his Ratna-karaṇḍa-śrāvakācāra with commentary of Prabhācandra (verse 3.16). Ati-lobha refers to “excessive greed expressed in wishing for ahigher price when a good price has been obtained”.
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.
