General definition (in Jainism)
Dharmya (धर्म्य).—What is meant by virtuous (dharmya) meditation? Meditation accompanied by spiritual values /virtues is called virtuous meditation. How many types of virtuous meditation are there?
It is of four types, namely:
- concentrating on objects of revelation (ājñāvicaya),
- concentrating on objects of misfortune / calamity (apāyavicaya);
- concentrating on objects of fruition of karmas (vipākavicaya);
- concentrating on objects of structure of the universe (saṃsthānavicaya).
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.
