General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
1) Uddhata (उद्धत) refers to “that which is full of (deceit)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Connections with pleasing sense objects, whose impressions are full of deceit (vañcana-uddhata-buddhi) like dreams, perish immediately”.
2) Uddhata (उद्धत) refers to “intense (desire)”, according to the Jñānārṇava.—Accordingly, “This world totters to the limit of the world of Brahmā with the fear of the beginning of a frown, and mountains immediately fall asunder by force of [the fact that] the earth is overcome by the weight of the heavy feet, of those heroes who are all led to death by the king of time in [the space of] some days. Nevertheless, desire is intense (uddhatā—uddhatāśā) only in a living being who is bereft of sense”.
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.
