General definition (in Jainism)
Oriyā (ओरिया) refers to one of the various Jain sacred places found at Abu, according to the Arbudācalacaityaparipāṭī by Somadevasūri (dealing with Sacred places in Jain literature), which is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—The Arbudācala-caityaparipāṭī represents a praise of the holiness of Abu as a Jain sacred place, and deals with the various Jain temples found at Abu. [For example:] [...] Oriyā, here called Urīhāsari, as having a Neminātha temple and image (differently in Holy Abu 139ff.).
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.
