General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Jaina Yoga
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: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 1
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.
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.

Ubhaya.—cf. ubhaiyam (SII 1), an offering. Cf. ubhaya-paliśai (SITI), interest in two ways, i. e. in money and in kind. (SITI), a tax payable in gold; probably the same as ubhaya-mārga or the tolls collected on the highways in both the directions, i. e. inward and outward. (SII, Vol. III, p. 209), a gift to a temple or monastery in Tamil records. Note: ubhaya is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
