Since my research is on the development of the metaphysics for clarifying ancient wisdom
and modern science across continents, I will use Vipin Gupta’s metaphysics to clarify the
difference. I leave it you to decide the value of my metaphysical knowledge for helping
your understanding of the difference.
Shvetambara is the unifying light, i.e., the absolute characteristic. They have an “adoration”
(Paryushan) for the unpleasant-feeling “possibility without one” (Asatavedaniya), known

as Isometry. Without one, it is possible to copy one within two. Without one, two is
zero. Therefore, the unifying light (Shvetamabra) is 1,0, i.e., 10. Shvetambara devote
eight days on introspection, thereby self-radiating the two days after irradiating the
absolute characteristic worth 10 over a day. Paryushan Parva is celebrated by
Shvetambara for eight days.
Digambara is the unified light, i.e., the absolute character. The absolute character makes
ideal symptom for overshadowing the adoration for the possibility without one the
“divine base” (Parva) of their introversion over ten days. After ten days, they become
conscious of the pleasant-feeling “possibility within one” (Satavedaniya), known as
Unitarity. One enjoys the possibility to copy oneself to make two within one. Therefore,
the ideal symptom (Dashalakashana) includes ten symptoms within three attributes.
The three attributes are Shvetambara, Digamabara, and Pitambara. Pitambara is the unifiable
light, i.e., the infinite characteristic. For them, the possibility with one is the attribute that
matters. The possibility with one is to be ten by behaving like a zero. Therefore, they
need zero days to be who they are.
