General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Jaina Yoga
Atisaṃgraha (अतिसंग्रह) 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-saṃgraha refers to “hoarding of grain or other commodities in the hope of making a very high profit, so as to obtain a bigreturn on capital”.
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.
