General definition (in Jainism)

Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections

Saṃpāta (संपात) refers to the “occurrence (of birth and death)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Companions are born only for this one to enjoy possessions but not to endure the pitiless succession of calamities arising from one’s own action. Why do the stupid, who are afflicted by the planet of [their] birth, not see solitariness which is perceived directly in the occurrence of birth and death (janmamṛtyu-saṃpāta)?”.

Synonyms: Ayāta, Agata, Āgamana.
