General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Mūlya (मूल्य) refers to “(great) value”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “The jewel of enlightenment is not easily obtained again for men in the ocean of life like a jewel of great value (mahā-mūlya) that has fallen from the hand into a great ocean”.
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.
