Īryāpathaka (ईर्यापथक) or Īryāpathakakarman refers to “karmas amalgamated by those who are completely dispassionate”, as mentioned in the Anekāntajayapatākā-prakaraṇa, a Śvetāmbara Jain philosophical work written by Haribhadra Sūri.—[Cf. Vol. II, P. 223, l. 18]—‘Īryāpathakakarman’ is opposed to sāmparāyikakarman. The former is amalgamated by those who are completely dispassionate—absolutely free from attachment and aversion, while the latter by those who are a prey to passions.
