Pāpadhī (पापधी) refers to a “wicked mind”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Behold the way of life of embodied souls. The body is crushed [but] not desire. Life perishes [but] not the wicked mind (pāpadhī). Delusion is evident [but] not the purpose of the self”.

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.
