Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Tibetan Buddhism
Sarvārthasiddhi (सर्वार्थसिद्धि) is the name of a Tathāgata (Buddha) mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism. The teachings in this text originate from Mañjuśrī and were taught to and by Buddha Śākyamuni in the presence of a large audience (including Sarvārthasiddhi).
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 4: The celestial beings (deva)
Sarvārthasiddhi (सर्वार्थसिद्धि) (or Sarvārthasiddha, Sarvārthasiddhaka) is one of the five anuttaras: a subclasses of kalpātītas (born beyond heaven), itself a division of empyrean celestial beings (vaimānika) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 4.19. The living beings residing in the vimānas are called the empyrean gods (vaimānika) and represents one of the four classes of Devas.
What is the peculiarity of heavenly beings in Sarvārtha-siddhi? They attain liberation in their next birth as human beings. Why Sarvārtha-siddhi is so called? Since the heavenly beings born here have all their wishes satisfied already. What is the minimum life span of Sarvārtha-siddhi heavenly beings? The life span of these heavenly beings is thirty three ocean-measured-periods (sāgara) as both minimum and maximum. How many births are required for Ahmindra god from Sarvārtha-siddhi to achieve liberation? They achieve liberation in one birth as human beings only.
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.
