General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Saṃhanana (संहनन) refers to the “six varieties of joints”.—(cf. Samavāyāṅgasūtra 155, p. 150; Sthānāṅgasūtra 494, p. 357.)—
Saṃhanana (संहनन) refers to “bone-joint karma” and represents one of the various kinds of Nāma, or “physique-making (karmas)”, which represents one of the eight types of Prakṛti-bandha (species bondage): one of the four kinds of bondage (bandha) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra chapter 8. What is meant by bone-joint (saṃhanana) body-making (nāma) karma? The karmas on the rise which the different types of bone-joints in the body get particularity are called bone-joint body-making karma.
How many types of joint (saṃhanana) body-making karma are there? These are of six types, namely:
- perfect joint (vajravṛṣabhanārāca or vajrarṣabhanārāca),
- the less perfect joint (vajranārāca),
- inferior joint (nārāca),
- weak joint (ardhanārāca),
- very weak joint (kīlaka),
- fragile joint (asaṃprāptasṛpāṭikā).
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.
