General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Pīḍita (पीडित) refers to “(being) afflicted” (by a multitude of diseases), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “For great men, what kind of delight is there in the body which is riddled with a multitude of hundreds of worms, afflicted by a multitude of diseases (rogapracaya-pīḍita) [and] worn out by old age? Whatever thing here in the body, which is the foul abode of bad odours, is considered by the one whose mind is pure, that bestows contempt on everything”.
