Bhavapratyaya (भवप्रत्यय) refers to “with state as the cause” and represents one of the two types of clairvoyance (avadhi-jñāna), according to Tattvārthasūtra 1.21.

What is the meaning of “cause as state” (bhava-pratyaya)? Pratyaya means the cause (nimitta) or reason (kāraṇa). By bhava-pratyaya we mean that the state or mode of existence is the cause of an attribute, e.g. bhava-pratyaya clairvoyance has the mode of existence of the soul as its cause of existence. Who are the owners of bhava-pratyaya clairvoyance? Celestial / heavenly beings (deva) and infernal /hellish beings (nāraki) are the owners of bhava-pratyaya clairvoyance. Clairvoyant known is in-born in them.
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.
