General definition (in Jainism)Source: Atma Dharma: Principles of Jainism
Soul Substance; That which possesses sentience or consciousness (i.e., the power of knowing and cognising) as its (basic, specific) attributes is called soul substance (jiva dravya).
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.
