Bhakta-pāna-vyavaccheda (भक्त-पान-व्यवच्छेद) or Bhakta-pāna-viccheda refers to one of the transgressions (aticāra) of the Ahiṃsā-vrata (vow of non-violence).—Siddhasena Ganin (in his commentary on the Tattvārtha-sūtra verse 7.20) says that the stinting of food or water to man or beast without cause is always to be avoided. For the moral good of undisciplined children or the physical good of fever patients it is, however, admissible when done with due care. The Digambaras understand this aticāra to mean “provoking the suffering of hunger or thirst in animals for any reason” (see Cāmuṇḍarāya’s Caritrasāra).

General definition book cover
context information

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.
