General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Janmapāśa (जन्मपाश) refers to the “bonds of life”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “In abiding-in-objects [meditation], there are to be known five acts of concentration described by the heroes [of the past]. The one who is restrained who is expert in them cuts through the bonds of life (janmapāśa)”.
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.
