Jarjarita (जर्जरित) refers to “(being) worn out” (by old age), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “For great men, what kind of delight is there in the body which is riddled with a multitude of hundreds of worms, afflicted by a multitude of diseases [and] worn out by old age (jarā-jarjarita)? Whatever thing here in the body, which is the foul abode of bad odours, is considered by the one whose mind is pure, that bestows contempt on everything”.
