General definition (in Jainism)
Pāpopārjita (पापोपार्जित) refers to “(that which is) gained from sin”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “[com.—Next he says that companions (sahāyāḥ) exist (bhavanti) in order to enjoy (bhoktuṃ) the object of possession (dravyaṃ) gained from sin (pāpopārjitaṃ) that is abundant (anekaṃ) such as sons, etc. (putrādayaḥ)]—Companions (sahāya) are born only for this one to enjoy possessions but not to endure the pitiless succession of calamities arising from one’s own action. Why do the stupid, who are afflicted by the planet of [their] birth, not see solitariness which is perceived directly 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.
