General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Avāya (अवाय) refers to “finding out the fact in the case” and represents one of the four classes of m “sense-knowledge” (mati-jñāna) which itself is one of the five types of “right-knowledge” (samyagjñāna), as mentioned in chapter 1.3 [ādīśvara-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.
Accordingly, as mentioned in Ṛṣabha’s sermon:
Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra
“[...] mokṣa is attained by those who practice unceasingly the brilliant triad of knowledge, faith, and conduct. Among these, exact knowledge which comes from a summary or detailed study of the principles, jīva, etc., is called ‘right-knowledge’ (samyagjñāna). [...] Mati-jñāna is said to be divided into [viz., avāya], etc., and these again into bahu, etc., and originates by means of the senses, and by means of the mind”.
Avāya (अवाय, “perceptual judgement”) refers to one of the four divisions of sensory knowledge (mati). What is perceptual judgment (avāya)? Knowing an object as it is after ascertaining its peculiarities is perceptual judgment e.g. seeing the movement of wings of the white object, to decide that is a crane.
according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 1.13, “The function of mati is the cognition with the aid of mind and sense organs through the stages of apprehension /sensation, speculation /discrimination, perceptual judgment (avāya) and retention”.Source: JAINpedia: Jainism
Avaya (अवय) refers to “gradual arrival at some conclusion” and represents one of the four thought processes relating to perception , as explained in the Nandīsūtra.—Comparable divisions are found in the Tattvārtha-sūtra I.15.Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Avāya (अवाय) (Sanksrit: Apāya) refers to “ (reflection on) misfortune” and represents one of the four types of “pure meditation” (sukkajhāṇa), a classification of the “meditation” (Jhāṇa), according to the Sthānāṅga Sūtra chapter 4.1.—The classification of meditation in the Sthānāṅga Sūtra comprises four kinds [e.g. “pure” (sukka/śukla)]. [...] The four reflections that are prescribed for pure meditation (sukkajhāṇa), [e.g., reflection on misfortune (avāya-aṇuppehā/apāya-anuprekṣā), ...].—Cf Aupapātika Sūtra and Bhagavatī (Bhagavaī), also known as the Vyākhyāprajñapti (Viyāhapannatti).
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.
