General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 5: The category of the non-living
Āvali (आवलि) refers to a unit of time according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 5.40.—What is the duration of one āvali? It consists of innumerable time-instants. What is the duration of one breathe (inhale and exhale)? It consists of numerable āvalis.
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.
