A set of three restraints on Jain householders that is meant to reinforce the practice of the minor vows or aṇu-vrata:

  • dig-vrata – limit travelling from home, because it inevitably involves unknowingly killing living things
  • bhogopabhoga – limit using disposable things or reuse things as much as possible
  • anarthadaṇḍa – limit meaningless activity, including fidgeting.
