General definition (in Jainism)
Īhā (ईहा, “speculation”) refers to one of the four divisions of sensory knowledge (mati). What is speculation /discrimination (īhā)? Inquisitiveness to know the object more crisply after its cognition through apprehension, e.g. is this white thing a crane or a flag?
according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 1.13, “The function of mati is the cognition with the aid of mind and sense organs through the stages of apprehension /sensation, speculation /discrimination (īhā), perceptual judgment and retention”.Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1
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.
