General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Vināśānta (विनाशान्त) refers to “until decay”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “You must understand that the body is overcome by disease, youth is overcome by old age, vitality is oppressed by decay [com.—vitality (aiśvaryaṃ), power, etc. (rājyādi) may exist (syāt) until decay (vināśāntaṃ)] and life is oppressed by death”.
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.
