Sākāramantrabheda (साकारमन्त्रभेद) refers to one of the transgressions (aticāra) of the Satya-vrata (vow of truth).—The Tattvārtha-bhāṣya (verse 7.21) defines this as “the taking of a pledge deposited by another person and forgotten”. According to the traditional Digambara interpretation (see Cāmuṇḍarāya’s Caritrasāra p. 5) this is “the divulging from jealousy or other motives of the secret intention of another person as divined by watching his gestures or facial expression”. The sixteenth-century commentator Prabhācandra applies this definition to the aticāra, which Samantabhadra calls paiśūnya. Siddhasena, in his commentary on the Tattvārtha-sūtra (verse 7.21), had explained paiśūnya as “breaking up a friendship between two people by revealing what one has learned by studying gestures and expression”, and guhya-bhāṣaṇa as “divulging affairs of state”. In the Bhāṣya both areassociated under the head of sākāra-mantrabheda: Hemacandra in turn groups them as alternative explanations of the guhya-bhāṣaṇa-aticāra.

Sākāramantrabheda (साकारमन्त्रभेद) refers to “proclaiming other’s thoughts” and represents one of the five transgressions (aticara) of the “minor vow of truthfulness” (satya-aṇuvrata) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 7.26.—What is meant by proclaiming other’s thoughts (sākāra-mantrabheda)? To guess other thoughts by reading their facial and body expressions and claim them as own with the intention of insulting others is proclaiming other’s thoughts.

context information

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.
