Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Saṃsevya (संसेव्य) refers to “one freed from wrong notions” [? i..e, ‘one worthy of being honoured’ ?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.36 (“The statements of the seven sages”).—Accordingly, after the mountains spoke to Himavat (Himācala): “On hearing the words of Meru and others, Himācala was greatly pleased and Pārvatī laughed within herself. Arundhatī too convinced Menā with reasoned statements and examples from various mythological legends. Then the wife of the mountain too was delightedly convinced. She entertained Arundhatī, the sages and the mountain with a grand feast and then took food herself. Then the chief of mountains, freed from wrong notions [+ susaṃsevya ?] and grown wise, spoke with palms joined in reverence and mind extremely delighted. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Saṃsevya (संसेव्य) refers to “having honoured”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Homage to that wishing tree that is the doctrine which is certainly succulent with compassion, by which the world is made pure, indeed by which it is maintained. That very same doctrine is proclaimed by the Jinas as possessed of ten characteristics, having honoured (saṃsevya) even a part of which those who have subdued their senses obtain liberation”.
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.
