General definition (in Jainism)

Kūṭasākṣya (कूटसाक्ष्य) refers to “bearing false witness”. It represents a division of untruth (asatya or alīka) according to Haribhadra’s 6th-centyury Śrāvaka-dharma-pañcāśaka 11 and is related to the satya-vrata (vow of truth).

Haribhadra’s classification of these untruths (eg., kūṭa-sākṣya) is given without perceptible variation in all Śvetāmbara works, from the Śrāvaka-prajñapti onwards, that treat of the vratas.

context information

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.
