General definition (in Jainism)Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
Manohārin (मनोहारिन्) refers to a class of yakṣas, which are deities categorised as belonging to the vyantara class of Gods (devas). According to Jain cosmological texts, such as the Saṃgrahaṇīratna, the assigned color of yakṣas is black and their tree is the “banyan tree” (vaṭa). The vyantaras represent a class of Gods (devas) comprising eight groups of deities that wander about the three worlds (adhaloka, madhyaloka and ūrdhvaloka).
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.
