General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Karmabandha (कर्मबन्ध) refers to the “bondage of karma”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “They fall from that place [and] immediately they enter the Rasātala hell. They roam about the whole world like the wind [and] they fall down into the Naraka hell.—[com.—Having created (kṛtvā) the bondage of karma fit for hell (narakaprāyogyakarmabandhaṃ), they go (gacchanti) into the Naraka hell (narakamadhye)—such is the meaning]”.
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.
