General definition (in Jainism)
Ubhaya (उभय) refers to objects that are “partly animate, partly inanimate”, and represents classification of things that can be stolen (steya, caurya), according to Umāsvāti’s Śrāvaka-prajñapti 265 and Haribhadra’s commentary on the Āvaśyaka-sūtra p. 822b. It is related to the Asteya-vrata (vow of not stealing).(Source): archive.org: Jaina Yoga
Ubhaya (उभय, “evolving”) refers to a category of both anugāmi (following) and ananugāmi (preceding), according to Tattvārthasūtra 1.21. Anugāmi and Ananugāmi refer to a type of guṇapratyaya: a category of knowledge (jñāna) obtained by clairvoyance (avadhi-jñāna).
What is meant by ubhaya-anugāmi clairvoyance? This clairvoyant knowledge goes with the owner from one place and state (realm) to another with the owner
What is meant by ubhaya-ananugāmi (clairvoyant knowledge that does not follow its owner to another realm)? This clairvoyant knowledge does not go with the owner from one place and realm to another with the owner.(Source): Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1
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.
