Ayambil is one kind of an auspicious Tap. It falls under the
intense category of Rasatyag Tap. Tap: Penance which contributes to
the destruction of Karmas. A pure soul has infinite Tapas.
There are twelve types of tap defined in the Jain scriptures. They
are divided into two groups; External Tap which
disciplines the human body against passions and desires and the Internal
Tap which purifies the soul.
- Anasan: Complete abstinence of eating any food and
drinking liquid for certain time
or Unodari: Reduction in the quantity
of food one normally eats
or Vritti Sankshep: Limiting
the number of food items to eat and material things for use
- Rasatyag: Complete abstinence of eating or drinking juicy
and tasty foods such as Ghee, butter, milk and milk products, tea,
Coffee, sweets, juice etc.
- Kayaklesa: Live and travel on a bare foot in a severe heat
and cold whether condition. Remove hair with the hand.
- Samlinata: Sitting in a lonely place in due
postures with senses and mind withdrawn inwardly.
- Prayaschit: Repentance for the breach of vows for
- Vinay: Politeness (appropriate behavior) towards
teachers and elders
- Vaiyavach: Rendering selfless service to the suffering and
- Swadhyay: Studying and listening of religious scriptures
- Dhyan: Religious meditation
or Bhutsarg: The ultimate internal
austerity, where the activities of body, speech and mind are
withdrawn. The body is fixed without movement, the speech is fixed by
means of silence, and the mind is fixed by means of sublime
meditation. This nirjara destroys all karmas .
