entity of actor and action.

Bhagavan Mahavira coined the word tanmurti. It maybe ex­plained in the following manner. When somebody moves or walks, there are two factors involved in it. One is the person who walks and the other is the movement. Mahavira insisted on removing this duality. The person who walks or moves should not be con­scious of the fact that it is he who is moving or walking. He should be wholly and solely absorbed in the act of moving or walking and forget himself. In other words, he should become one with motion and be conscious of nothing else except the rhythm of his move­ments. This transplantation of consciousness from the ego to the rhythm of motion is called tanmurti. This is one way of arriving at our real (substantial) being.
