General definition (in Jainism)Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
Satyadevatā (सत्यदेवता) is another name (synonym) for Satyadeva, one of the four classes of Gods (devas) according to Somasena in his Traivarṇikācāra. Somasena was a follower of the Digambara tradition and flourished in the 16th century. The Satyadevatās refer to the pañcaparameṣṭhins (five supreme lords) who lead to the attainment of mokṣa (emancipation).
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.
