General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 7: The Five Vows
Vimocitāvāsa (विमोचितावास) refers to “residence in a deserted place” and forms part of the contemplations of the vow of non-stealing (asteyavrata) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 7.6.—What is meant by stay in a deserted secluded place (vimocitā-vāsa)? It means to live in places deserted by others. Such places have no owners and so to stay in such places does not cause the sin of stealing to be accrued.
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.
