General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Jaina Yoga
Tucchaphala (तुच्छफल) refers to “empty fruits” and represents an article of food classified as abhakṣya (forbidden to eat) according to Nemicandra (in his Pravacana-sāroddhāra v245-246). The expression tuccha-phala embraces also flowers, leaves, and roots, “empty” because they do not satisfy hunger but cause much destruction of jīvas. Examples of these are the bael fruits, and rose-apples, and the flowers of mahua, and Indian horse-radish.
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.
