Samuddhṛtya (समुद्धृत्य) refers to “having saved (sentient beings)” (from the mire of life), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “It goes along with [sentient beings to the other world], then it protects, produces benefit always [and], having saved [them] (samuddhṛtya) from the mire of life it sets [them] on the pure path [of liberation]. There is nothing like the doctrine which is productive of all prosperity, the root of the tree of bliss, beneficial, venerable and grants liberation”.

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.
