General definition (in Jainism)Source: University of Cambridge: Jainism
Puṣpikā (पुष्पिका) is the name of a Jain text.—five texts that are usually found together (i.e., Nirayāvalikā, Kalpāvataṃsikā, Puṣpikā, Puṣpacūlā and Vṛṣṇidaśā) correspond to the last five Upāṅgas of the Śvetāmbara canon. According to the colophon, the manuscript was commissioned by Budhakheṭāka, son of Buharāḍhāla, in order to be read by Devavijayagaṇi, during the reign of the famous Hīravijayasūri, pontiff of the Tapāgaccha.
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.
