Not letting the eyes see the objects of knowledge is ocular obscuring. Cakṣudarśana is also known as Cakṣudarśanāvaraṇa, Cakṣurdarśanāvaraṇa, Cakṣudarśanāvaraṇīya or Cakṣurdarśanāvaraṇīya.
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.
