General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Viniṣkrānta (विनिष्क्रान्त) refers to “emerging” (from the pit of hell), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Where is the escape from the bottom of the pit of hell for the living soul who is continually afflicted by the enemy of infinite evil? If he emerges from that (viniṣkrānta—tasmād yadi viniṣkrāntaḥ), the sentient being is born among the immobile beings or by some action reaches the state of mobile beings”.
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.

Viniṣkrānta (विनिष्क्रान्त) in the Sanskrit language is related to the Prakrit word: Viṇikkhaṃta.
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
