General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Vyāmūḍhacetas (व्यामूढचेतस्) refers to “(having) entirely stupefied minds”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “And having duly found the path consisting of the Three Jewels, some whose minds are entirely stupefied (vyāmūḍhacetas) by the poison of excessive wrong faith, give up. Some person destroys himself, someone is destroyed by those who have destroyed [themselves] and someone is diverted from the path [to liberation] by the teachings of fierce heretics”.
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.
