General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Dṛṣṭipatha (दृष्टिपथ) refers to “that which is seen” (lit., ‘have come to the path of sight’), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Those objects having a pleasant form, which are seen (dṛṣṭipatha—ye dṛṣṭipatham āyātāḥ) in the morning and not at midday, vanish for the embodied souls in this world”.
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.
