General definition (in Jainism)Source: University of Cambridge: Jainism
Vītarāgastotra (वीतरागस्तोत्र) or simply Vītarāga of Hemacandra is a Sanskrit poetic hymn in twenty sections dedicated to the beauty and perfection of a Jina. Its author is the 12th century Jaina Śvetāmbara polymath monk Hemacandra, who wrote it for the king of Gujarat Kumārapāla a little after V.S. 1216 = 1159 CE.
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.
