General definition (in Jainism)
Siddhaloka (सिद्धलोक).—At the very apex of the universal space is the abode of the liberated perfect souls known as—ṣatprāgbhāra-pṛthvī or Siddhaloka. It lies 12 yojana above the Sarvārthasiddha, the topmost heaven. It is of shiny white colour, forty-five hundred thousand yojana in diameter and eight yojana thick in the middle, which tapers down to the thinness of a fly’s feather at the edges. The universal space extends up to one Yojana above this land and the liberated souls reside in the rarest atmosphere in the uppermost sixteenth part of this space over the Siddhaśilā.
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.
