General definition (in Jainism)
Paribhramat (परिभ्रमत्) or Bhramat refers to “wandering” (in the cycle of rebirth), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “On account of the difference between what is intentional [com.—is because of wandering (paribhramataḥ) in the cycle of rebirth (saṃsāre) in accordance with the instruction of a guru, etc. (gurūpadeśādinā)] and unintentional [com.—is because of wandering (bhramataḥ) in the cycle of rebirth (saṃsāre) without (vinā) virtue (dharma)] , wearing away karma has two varieties which are the cause for cutting off the many chains produced by actions. Just as fruits of a tree ripen of their own accord and from [different] means so in this world [the ripening] of karmas is to be understood as [being] of its own accord in the form of [different] means”.
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.
