General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Prakīrtita (प्रकीर्तित) refers to “that which is called [i.e., ‘said to be’]”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “That, which is the restraint of all influx of karma, is called (prakīrtita) ‘stopping the influx of karma’. Further, that is divided in two on account of the distinction between what is physical and what is mental. That, which is the cessation of the acquisition of karmic material of an ascetic, is declared by those whose sins are removed by meditation to be the physical stopping of the influx of karma”.
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.
