In Jainism

General definition (in Jainism)

Source: Jaina Yoga

Garhya (गर्ह्य) refers to “speech that is insulting” and represents a type of nindya (reprehensible speech), which itself is a division of untruth (asatya) according to Amitagati’s classification in his 11th-century Śrāvakācāra verses (6.49-54). These asatyas are related to the satya-vrata (vow of truth). Speech that is insulting (garhya), eg., in Hemacandra ākrośa-rūpa—or inspired by malice or mockery, e.g. calling someone a bastard.

Amitagati’s classification of these untruths (e.g., nindya and garhya) is given not only by the Digambaras Amitagati and Amṛtacandra but also in the Yoga-śāstra where the treatment goes back directly to Siddhasena’s commentary on the Tattvārtha-sūtra (verse 7.9) and indeed to the Śvetāmbara Bhāṣya.

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.
