In Jainism

General definition (in Jainism)

Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1

Niḥsṛta (निःसृत, “revealed”).—What is the meaning of revealed (niḥsṛta)? Cognition of a revealed /visible object is called niḥsṛta, e.g. knowing an elephant when the same is visible completely.

The opposite (setara) of niḥsṛta is aniḥsṛta (hidden).—To cognize a hidden object by seeing a part of the same is called hidden (aniḥsṛta) knowledge e.g. knowing an elephant submerged in water just by seeing its trunk.

according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 1.16, “The subdivisions of each of these (kinds of mati, or ‘mind-based knowledge’) are: more, many kinds, quick, hidden (aniḥsṛta), unexpressed, lasting, and their opposites”.
