General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Jaina Yoga
Ativāhana (अतिवाहन) 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-vāhana refers to “out of greed of gain driving oxen or other beasts of burden for a greater distance than they can com-fortably go”.
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.
