Viparītatva (विपरीतत्व) refers to “contrariety (in the friendliness)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “[com.—Next he speaks about the contrariety (viparītatvam) in the friendliness (hitatve) of friends (bāndhavānāṃ)]—Those who throw you into the whirlpool of life are certainly not [your] friends. Having shown [you] what is beneficial, yogis will form a kinship with you”.
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.
