General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Sakāśa (सकाश) refers to the “presence (of action)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Having discerned [com.—having made the right judgment (vivekaṃ kṛtvā). Then, with the right judgment (vivekapūrvaṃ), because of the presence (sakāśāt) of action (karmaṇaḥ)] that [action] to be done by this human body which produces purity in both worlds, action in a manner different from this is to be abandoned”.
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.
