General definition (in Jainism)
Bandhitā (बन्धिता) (Cf. Ālānita, Ālāna) refers to “caused to be bound” (to the post of the mind), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Further, for the complete attainment of the desire for liberation, non-attachment, restraint and tranquillity, those [twelve reflections] are tied [com.—bandhitā—‘caused to be bound’] to the post of the mind by mendicants desiring liberation”.
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.
