General definition (in Jainism)
Muktāvalivarāvabhāsasamudra (मुक्तावलिवरावभाससमुद्र) is the name of an ocean (samudra) surrouding the continent of Muktāvalivarāvabhāsadvīpa (or simply Muktāvalivarāvabhāsa), according to Jain cosmology. The Muktāvalivarāvabhāsasamudra and Muktāvalivarāvabhāsadvīpa are situated in the middle-world (madhyaloka), which contains innumerable concentric continents (dvīpa), each surrounded by their own ocean. The middle-world, as opposed to the upper-world (adhaloka) and the lower-world (ūrdhvaloka), is the only world where humans can be born. Muktāvalivarāvabhāsasamudra is also known as plainly Muktāvalivarāvabhāsa.
Muktāvalivarāvabhāsasamudra is recorded in ancient Jaina canonical texts dealing with cosmology and geography of the universe. Examples of such texts are the Saṃgrahaṇīratna in the Śvetāmbara tradition or the Tiloyapannatti and the Trilokasāra in the Digambara tradition.Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
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.
