Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections

Vipatti (विपत्ति) refers to “death”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “One of confused intelligence does not perceive his own death (vipattivipattiṃ svasya mūḍhadhīḥ) as [he does the death] of another like the one staying in a tree in a burning forest that is teeming with life. As the young so the old, as the rich so the poor, as the brave so the cowardly—Yama devours [all] equally”.
