Āyuḥpramukha (आयुःप्रमुख) refers to the “multitudes of lives”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “ [com.—Next he speaks about the transience (anityatām) of multitudes of lives (āyuḥpramukhāṇām)]—Truly, life perishes exceedingly quickly like 819 water lying in the hand [and] youth perishes like snow passes from the petal of a lotus”.
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.
