that knowing soul, the formerly bound Karmas (are ineffectual) like clad
of earth, although all of them are bound with its karmic body.
When a person becomes
a right believer and a right knower of true principle and realizes the
discrimination between the true and real nature of soul and non-soul he is
at first a right believer of the subsidential kind. Wrong belief and
error-feeding passion karmas, which are not yet destroyed, but made to
subside, simply exist without producing any effect like a clod of earth.
If he is firm in right belief he will not allow them to operate again and
will save himself from relapsing into wrong belief. He will, then,
transform himself into a right believer of the destructive subsidential
kind. There-afterwards, if he happens to be in the presence of an
Omniscient or a saint with full scriptural knowledge, he will remove all
right-belief preventing Karmas from existence in the soul, and will become
a right believer of the destructive description. He could never again
replace into perverse belief and shall soon obtain Liberation. Material
Karmas cannot disturb the thought-activity of soul, unless they operate,
and the soul is not strong enough to resist their, operation. One should
not, therefore, be afraid of karmas merely in existence, but must to be
strong in soul-power in order to resist their operation, and to let them
be exhausted and shed off.

are of four kinds (wrong belief, vowlessness, passions and vibratory
activity) bind the soul every moment with many kinds of Karmas with the
help of the soulï¿½s attributes of conation and knowledge (love and hatred),
therefore, the knowing soul (attentive to itself) is certainly incapable
of being bound by Karmas.
The knowing soul
when attentive to itself is free from bondage. The previously bound
Karmas are really the auxiliary cause of the inflow of fresh Karmas. Soul
by itself does neither taken in, nor bind any Karmas at all. It is really
free from all inflow and bondage. A seeker after Liberation must improve
his soul-power in order to resist the operation of deluding Karma, which
is the chief enemy of the mundane soul.

because the attribute of knowledge when in a low stage (below the 11th) is
again modified into something else (Love, hatred) it is, in that view said
to be the binder (of karmas).
A person who has
not attained the destructive stage of a right believer, falls down for
want of sufficient strength in his soul power from right belief into wrong
belief. He is subjected to bondage of wrong belief and other karmas on
account of his thought-activity being affected with strong delusion,
attraction or repulsion, and is again attached to the world. It is the
deluding karma which must be destroyed. As long as it has the least
mastery over consciousness, no check of inflow of karmas is possible. A
right believer should therefore believe himself to be the Pure Soul and
should realise his own pure nature, by practising self-absorption. It is
this conduct only, which can weaken the passions and improve soul-power.

molecules of deluding Karma being merel bound up in a soul, do not affect
him, unless they come into operation and the soulï¿½s thought-activity is
not strong enough to resist their operation. Where there is impure
thought-activity there is bondage. Till the 10th spiritual stage, seven
Karmas are being bound ever moment by the soul, but age-karma is bound
only on certain occasions. It is bound in one of the 8 declining times
(vide Gammatsara Jiva Kanda Gatja 518, page 258).
