Bahiraṅga (बहिरङ्ग) refers to “external” (relatives), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Certainly where there is [such] great difference between the body and the embodied soul , how could there be unity with relatives who are external (bahiraṅga)? Whichever sentient and insentient objects attain a connection, they are all different in all cases according to their own nature”.
