Naisargika (नैसर्गिक) refers to an aspect of mithyātva (false belief) as defined by Amitagati in his 11th century Śrāvakācāra. Accordingly, naisargika refers to the inherent false belief of creatures devoid of consciousness which, like a blind man, cannot discern fair from foul. This is equivalent to the agṛhīta of the previous list, or the anābhogika of the first list. Mithyātva refers to the direct opposite of samyaktva, and is defined by Hemacandra in his 12th century Yogaśāstra verse 2.17 as belief in false divinities, false gurus, and false scriptures.

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.
