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”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
