[...] Men, reduced to mere bones and as named to beg will be harassed both by their own princes and by the princes of other lands. Some will begin to speak disparagingly of the character and deeds of their own sovereign. Even though there should be indications of good rain, the clouds will yield [i.e., niṣpanna] little rain; the rivers will fall and (food) crops will be found (only) here and there”.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Niṣpanna (निष्पन्न) refers to “(being) produced (from a mass of atoms)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “This corporeal body is produced from a mass of atoms (aṇu-pracaya-niṣpanna). An embodied soul has the nature of enjoyment, is beyond the senses [and] consists of knowing. Why do the stupid, afflicted by the planet of [their] birth, not perceive the difference [between the body and the self] which is recognised everywhere in the occurrence of birth and death.”.
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.
