Bhūgarbha (भूगर्भ) refers to “geology” and is one of the topics treated in the Samavāyāṅga, one of the Dvādaśāṅgī (twelve Aṅgas) of Jainism.—The Samavāyāṅga occupies the fourth place in Dvādaśāṅgī. It comprises one Śruta skandha, one chapter, one topic, only one sub topic and 144000 verses. The text available now has only 1667 Slokas. [...] The multitude of topics included are philosophical theories, matters related to Tīrthaṃkaras, Gaṇadharas, Cakravartīs and Vasudevas, subjects like Bhūgarbha (geology), Bhūgola (geography), Khagola (astronomy), interesting facts of sun, moon, stars and planets etc. Thus it provides very useful material.

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.
