General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1
Candraprajñapti (चन्द्रप्रज्ञप्ति) refers to a sub-division of parikarma, one of the five parts of Dṛṣṭivāda: one of the twelve limbs of the internal-corpus (aṅga-praviṣṭa). The Aṅgapraviṣṭa refers to one of the two types of scriptural knowledge (śruta), which refers to one of the five types of knowledge (jñāna).
according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 1.20, “scriptural knowledge (śruta) preceded by sensory knowledge (mati) is of two, or of twelve (eg., dṛṣṭivāda) or of many kinds”. Dṛṣṭivāda is of five kinds (eg., parikarma). Parikarma is again of five sub-divisions (eg., candra-prajñapti).
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.
