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. 


External Tap:

  • Anasan: Complete abstinence of eating any food and drinking liquid for certain time
  • Alpaahar or Unodari: Reduction in the quantity of food one normally eats
  • Ichhanirodh 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  • Samlinata: Sitting in a lonely place in due postures with senses and mind withdrawn inwardly.

Internal Tap:

  • Prayaschit: Repentance for the breach of vows for spiritual purification
  • Vinay: Politeness (appropriate behavior) towards teachers and elders
  • Vaiyavach: Rendering selfless service to the suffering and deserving
  • Swadhyay: Studying and listening of religious scriptures
  • Dhyan: Religious meditation
  • Kayotsarg or Bhutsarg: The ultimate internal austerity, where the activities of body, speech and mind are withdrawn.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 .
