General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Sevyamāna (सेव्यमान) refers to “(being) cherished”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “The pleasures that are cherished (sevyamāna), like the poison of a snake, are the thieves of life immediately and they are produced in the cycle of rebirth by the 30 gods”.
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.
