2. The eternal bondage of soul and Karmic matter is their nature, Prakriti, Shila, Svabhava. The existence (of soul and Karmas) is self-proved (as) the dirt in golden are.



The union of soul and matter is self-proved. This is the first point from which Jainism starts. This corresponds to the mighty and pregnant division of all things into Jiva and Ajiva, i. e., living and non-living, or soul and non-soul. Soul always, and soul alone, has consciousness. It alone is living, i. e., is Jiva. An else is non-soul, non-living, devoid of consciousness, which never had and never shall have consciousness, and is incapable of being conscious. Everything that is not Jiva is without consciousness. Pure soul is pure consciousness. Pure non-soul is without consciousness, or without any semblance of consciousness. This is not a merely logical division, convenient for analysis, arrangement or exposition. It is a basic fact. It must be thoroughly understood. Any error or doubt about this will certainly vitiate ones understanding of Truth. The duality of a human being is obvious. My nails are different from my idea of Shakespeare, or my ambition of being a worthy citizen of my country. The nail detached from me is dead matter. Not so the idea of Poetry or Patriotism. A still finer observation may be made. Life means a grouping together of so many vitalities, e. g. those faculties which enable me to apprehend objects by means of my senses, or to sense my own powers of body, speech and mind, or my respiration. These vitalities exist in me, but not in dead matter. Every fact in life, to the truly observant soul, cries out in a most unmistakable tone the message of this inherent and inevitable mundane duality. There is Life. There is Lifelessness. We see it in every thing. We see it around us. We see it in us. It is only the man imbued with a philosophy, in the phrase of Hume, subversive of all speculation, who blinds himself to the obvious existence of these two facts, or who by looking too long and too intently and exclusively only upon one of these, thinks fit to apotheosize the one and to deny the other. Of this one-sided attitude are born the pure materialists and the pure spiritualists, typified by the Charvakas and the Vedantists of India respectively. For one, all is matter; for the other, all is soul. Thus at the very outset, Jainism sounds a clarion note of dissent from these one sided views of Truth. It takes its stand on the plurality of the aspects of Truth, and teaches us that both the materialists and the spiritualists are correct, but only partially. Certainly; there is matter, there is Ajiva; thus Charvaka is right and the Vedantist wrong. There is also Spirit, there is Jiva; thus Vedantism is true, and Charvaka wrong. We must see both, as both are obvious. Take only one broad common phenomenon of death. John dies. The whole of John does not disappear. His body is there. His vitality is not. He is not there; he has gone from the body. That he who has gone from the body and who when he was with it and in it, made it. alive, is the true John, the Jiva who was called John, according to Jainism. The body which he wore and which he dropped or left on death is the other partner in the firm of soul and matter; it is Ajiva. And still though the fact of this duality, this universal union of Jiva and Ajiva is obvious, yet its full grasp and thorough comprehension are far from easy. A beautiful little book by the author of Gommatasara himself gives us as clear a notion of Jiva, as any can be obtained in the peculiar and natural circumstances of things. The reader is referred to Dravya samgraha, where in Gatha 2, the 9 chief characteristics of the soul are enumerated, and each of them elaborated in the succeeding Gathas. But here the point to be realised clearly is this, that matter -one of the 5 chief forms of Ajiva -is in union with soul, the only living and conscious substance. Lifeless matter is found united with living soul. The whole Drama of life is played or danced together by the living soul being in close grasp of lifeless matter. Lifeless space is the stage; Lifeless Time is the duration; and lifeless Dharma and Adharma, the indispensable assistants for the dancers to move or to rest. The exercise of dancing is their eternal movement in the cycle of mundane existences. At each step, the momentum for a new movement is gained. At each embrace of matter, the delighted deluded soul throbs and vibrates for a fresh embrace. Wily matter is ever ready to attack the soul and to flow into it with its million insinuations and to keep alive and vigorous the bondage of the living by the non-1ivng. The inflow of the non-living matter into the living soul is called Asrava; the bondage is Bandha. The stoppage of Asrava is Samvara; the release of bondage is Nirjara; the total Liberation of the living from the bondage of the non-living is Moksha. The 7 Tattvas or Principles of Jainism are treated in Umasvamis Tattvartha Sutra, to which the reader is referred for further information about them. The activity of the soul which invites and enables matter to flow into it, as also the matter which actually does flow into the soul, is technically called Karma. The thought activity is Bhava-Karma; the actual matter flowing into the soul and binding it is Dravya-Karma. This book - the Karma-Kanda of Gommatasara deals with Karmas, their incidence, kinds, etc.


Notice also that in the world, all souls are always found united with matter. Pure souls abide only in Siddhakshetra, the Abode of the Liberated. In universal space, souls are from eternity subject to the bondage of matter. The Panchastikaya of Shri Kunda Kundacharya, talking of such souls, tells us in Gatha 27:


߾ע פ ֡׾֤ l

ֵ֤֢ ӕ ll


Jiva (mundane soul) is (always) combined with Karmas. This bondage of Karmas is from eternity, but when once it is broken and Liberation attained, then it is destroyed totally and for ever. Of course the matter of the bondage is freely and constantly being changed; but the fact and condition of the bondage of Jiva by Ajiva persist through all these changes. Old Karmic matter is shed; and new assumed; but there never has been a moment when the mundane soul was free from its vestment of Karmic matter.

3. By the operation of the body sub-class of body-making Karma the soul attracts Karmic and quasi-Karmic (physical molecules) every instant to the whole body as a hot iron ball (draws in) water (from all sides).


The soul united with the body, is constantly taking in material molecules to renew and build its Karmic and two other bodies. Karmic molecules build up the Karmic body; and the physical molecules build up the other physical bodies.

In all there are 5 possible bodies of a mundane soul (1) Audarika, the external physical body, (2) Vaikriyika, fluid body of the celestial and hellish beings, (3) Aharaka, the assimilative body in which a saints soul flashes to an omniscient to resolve some doubt, (4) Taijasa, electric body, (5) Karmana, Karmic body. These are all material. The molecules of which they are formed are of 2 kinds. (1) Karma-vargana of which the Karmic body is made. (2) No-karma-vargana, of which the other bodies are made. The no-karma vargana is of 2 kinds Taijasa vargana, of which the electric body is formed; and the Aharaka vargana, of which the externa1 physical, fluid and Aharaka bodies are made. Every embodied soul has at least 3 bodies, the Karmic, the electric and either the fluild or the external physical body. Sometimes it has 4, for one antar-muhurta, when the Aharaka body emanates from a saint in doubt. And in transmigration, i. e., its passage from one to another condition of existence, the soul has only 2 bodies - i. e., the Karmic and the electric.


All these bodies are in form like the external body occupied by the soul; they are all co-extensive. Except that the Aharaka body is human in form but in size of a length equal to the forearm of the saint himself, i. e., from the elbow to the tip of his middle finger.


The fluid body also, although it is changeable at will. is yet one to begin with, and its identity persists throughout life.

4. An infinite part of the number of Liberated souls (which is also infinite), and infinite times the number of souls, incapable of becoming liberated is the (maximum and minimum respectively) of unit of bondage, or the number of molecules (which the soul) binds (to itself) in one instant, owing to the souls vibratory activity (intense or mild). But (the number of molecules is) unequal; (i. e., sometimes more and at other less are bound). .



Instant-bondage, Samaya Prabaddha, is the number of Karmic or no-Karmic molecules bound by the soul in one instant. Henceforth we call it the unit of Bondage or Instant-bondage.

5. One unit of bondage is shed (every instant); and many units of bondage (are shed in one instant) by effort (i. e., austerities, etc). The one and one-half of Gunahanis (multiplied) by unit of bondage represent the molecules which remain bound to the soul.



Note-׭ Gunahani (G) is the numb!:! 01 terms of a series, the sum of which is the number of mol~eules of a unit of Bondage, (M. U. B.) and each term in which is half of the term immediately preceding it.

׭ ִֵ Gunahani-a-yama, (G. A.) is the number of instants (Samayas) in one Gunahani. .


׭ ִֵ nana gunahanis is the group of gunahanis in one Unit

of Bondage.


׭ ִֵ Anyonya-bhyasta-rashi=2 raised to the power of the number of gunahanis in one Unit of Bondage.


Thus guna am-ayama =Duration of Bondage {S).

Number of gunahanis.


E.g. If 48 samayas is the duration)of Units of Bondage, and 6 is the number of gunahanis, then gunahani-ay:ama-4 8/6=8.


Here nana-gunahani=the group of 6 gunahanis.


Anyonya bhyastarashi here=26 -64. This minus one, being the divisor of the number of a Unit of Bondage gives us the last term of the series.


E.g. If a Unit of Bondage have 6300 molecules, then the last term I 6300/64I=100.


Thus the series of 6. gunahanis here is.

3200 + 1600 + 800+ 400 + 200 I- 100=6300.


In the example given above, the soul which binds in one instant 6300 molecules, of a duration of 48 samayas and of 6 gunahanis, will shed 3200 molecules in the 1st 8 samayas.


1600 2nd

800 3rd

400 4th

200 5th

100 6th


׭ָ Nishekahara (N=2 G.A.)is always double the number of gunahani ayama. Thus in the above example nishekahara is double of 8=16.


ֵ Chaya (C) is the regular arithmetic difference between any consecutive two of the terms of the series of a gunahani. Chaya is the molecules of a gunahani divided by

nishekahara + No. of gunahani ayama + 1 x gunahani ayama.



_______________molecules of a gunahani x 2

(nishekahara + No. of a gunahani ayama + 1) X gunahani ayama.


molecules of a gunahani x 2

(2 gunahani ayama+ No. of gunahani ayama+1) X gunahani ayama.


M. U. B.x2

- (-2 S/G +S/G + 1) X S/G


The molecules shed in the 1st instant (F). in any gunahaniF=Chaya X Nishekahara.


   4M / 3S/G+1=M/3S/4G+1/4


Where M is the number of molecules in a gunahani; S is the total samayas in Sthiti, and G is the number of gunahanis.


4M x G Chaya= 1st term =F/ 2S/G

2 gunabani ayama -


Thus in the 4th 8 samayas in the above example, 400 molecules are shed. We want to find out how many molecules are shed in the 1st samaya, and by how many molecules the shedding becomes less and less in each succeeding samaya.

To find out the molecules shed in the 1st samaya. i. e., F we apply the formula.


4M - 4 X 400 - 4+ 400 1600 =64.

F- 3S 3x48/6+1 24+ 1 25


To find out the Chaya, (C) we employ the formula.

F 64 64

C--2S /G+1 = 2X 48 = 16 4. = 4.


Therefore the number of molecules shed in the 4th set of 8 samayas will be 64, 60, 56, 52, 48, 44, 40 and 36=400.


If in one instant, the soul binds 6300 molecules of a duration of 48 instants then they are shed as follows:

1st 8 instants 512, 480, 448, 416, 384, 352, 320, 288 3,200

2nd 256, 240, 224, 208, 192, 176, 160, 144 1,600

3rd 128, 120, 112, 104, 96, 88, 80, 72 800

4th 64, 60, 56, 52, 48, 44, 40, 36 400

5th 82, 80, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18 200

6th 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10,9 100

6. From the point of view of Karma-ness (Karma is) of one kind. As dravya Karma(karmic matter) and bhava Karma (its capacity of fruition) it is of 2 kinds. But the material aggregate of Karmic molecules is dravya Karma; its power to operate is bhava Karma.




When a Karma for example, the knowledge-obscuring-Karma, operates and the intellect begins to act perversely, we call that perversity a bhava Karma. Here we call the effect, by the name of cause. The bhava Karma is really the power in the knowledge obscuring-Karma to operate and it is slightly figurative to call the result of this operation as bhava Karma.

Vedaniya or Feeling-Karma comes in the list like this. It is the result of the K now I edge and Conation-obscuring Karmas, and operates with the help of the Deluding Karmas, i. e. with the help of its species Rati and Arati, indulgence and ennui. Therefore it is placed after the knowledge and conation obscuring, but before the deluding Karma. It is called nondestructive, because its operation is limited to bringing about occasions for pleasure and pain. The realizing of pleasure and paint depends upon the souls attention and indulgence and ennui. If the soul is non-attentive to such occasions, and is not influenced by them, the Feeling Karma though operative; cannot disturb the thought activity of the soul.

Subsidential right-belief is of 2 kinds. Prathamopashama samyaktva, the first subsidential right-belief. It may arise (1) in a soul which has never had right-belief, by the subsidence of the 4 error-feeding Passions and Wrong-belief, i.e., the 4 Anantanubandhi Kashayas and Mithyatva; or (2) in a soul which has had, but has lost right-belief, by the subsidence of the above 5 and of the 2 samyaktva mithyatva, mixed-right-and-wrong-belief, and samyaktva Prakriti, tight-belief -clouded-by-slight- wrong -belief.


Dvitiyopashama-Samyaktva, the second-subsidential right-belief. It arises in a saint in the 7th spiritual stage of Perfect Vows. When this saint is preparing to pass on to the 8th stage of New Thought-activity along the line of subsidential advancement, having been already a right-believer of the destruction-subsidence kind. he transforms the nature of the 4 error-feeding Passions into lesser passions, and causes the subsidence of the 3 sub-classes of right belief-deluding-Karma, namely, Mithyatya, Samyaktva Mithyatva, and Samyaktva Prakriti Mithyatva. The right-belief of this saint is called the second-subsidential right-belief.


Wrong-belief is of three kinds, Mithyatva, Wrong-belief, samyaktva-Mithyatva, mixed-right-and-Wrong-belief, Samyaktva Prakriti -Mithyatva. right-belief -clouded-by -slight- wrong-belief.


The matter of wrong-belief Karma, by being subjected to the thought, activity of the First-subsidential-right-belief becomes of the above 3 kinds. Wrong-belief has the largest number of mole cules. Mixed-right-and-wrong belief has a number of molecules innumerably less than that. And right-belief-clouded by-slight wrong-belief innumerably less than those of mixed-right-and wrong-belief.

27. The electric and karmic (bodies) with (the other) three; the electric with the Karmic; the karmic with another karmic; (the bodies) thus combining (we get) four, four, four, two, and one sub-classes (of the 5 bodies).



The 15 are these:

1. Physical-physical; 2. Physical-electric; 3. Physical-Karmic.

4. Physical-electric-Karmic. 5. Fluid-fluid; 6. Fluid-electric;

7. Fluid-karmic; 8. Fluid electric- karmic. 9. Aharaka-aharaka ;

10. Aharaka-electric; 11. Aharaka-karmic; 12. Aharaka-electric-karmic.

13. Electric-electric; 14. Electric-karmic. 15. Karmic-karmic.


These 15 are the names of the sub-classes of the body-making Karmas, by the operation of which respectively, a physical body is produced from another physical body; an electric body from a physical body; and so on. These 15 are illustrated as follows :


1. In a Chakravarti, who has 96000 wives; his original physical body is reserved for his chief wife. But for the others, he produces by the operation of this Karma 95999 physical bodies. Of Course the soul remains the same, although it employs all the 96000 bodies simultaneously.


2. In a saint, in anger or compassion, the electric body which issues from the left or right shoulder is due to the operation of this Karma. Note that although he has got an electric body also, but the electric body which he throws forth from his shoulders is said to be produced by the operation of his physical-electric sub-class of body-making Karma, because the vibratory-activity of the soul which results in the operation of this particular sub-class is produced I by the physical body mainly. Thus the Yoga or Vibratory-activity which produces the electric body, being physical, the Karmic sub-class is called physical-electric. Note also that these bodies which are produced are made up of fresh molecules, and are not divisions or offshoots of the physical, electric and Karmic bodies already possessed by the saint.


3. At the approach of death, a Karmic body is produced to go and sort-of-touch the place where the soul is to reincarnate.


4. At the approach of death of a saint in compassion, both the electric and Karmic bodies issue simultaneously for their different purposes.


5 to 8. Apply to celestial and hellish beings. Celestial beings never travel out, in the body in which they are born; but they send out one or more fluid, etc. bodies by the operation of these 4 subclasses of body-making Karmas. Note that the hellish beings merely transform the matter of their own fluid body into another form. Their fluid electric Karma operates in anger only.


9 to 12. Apply to the Aharaka body. Somehow if it has not fulfilled its mission its appointed duration, the saint issues out another Aharaka from the previous one. This is done by the operation of the 9th sub-class, Aharaka-aharaka. The 10th is, where an electric body is produced from the aharaka, e. g., to protect or extricate a saint from some trouble or difficulty. The 11th is when the saint is about to die and is in doubt also. The 12th is where the circumstances of the 10th and 11th co-exist.


13. Electric-electric. If one electric body has failed to complete its mission in its appointed time, then another is produced from the same.


14. When the Karmic is produced from fin electric body.

15. The Karmic body produces another Karmic body.

By (the 6th, i. e., Sripatika) osseous structure (in which there are no peculiar joints but only ligatures) the soul goes from the first to the 4 pairs of heavens, (i. e., up to the 8th heaven Kapishtha). Ann those of (the 5th), Kilita (small joints and bones) and of (4th) Ardha-naracha (big joints on one side and bones) respectively go further to two pairs each (of the heavens).



The soul with 6th osseous structure can go up to the 8th heaven, but not beyond.


The soul with 5th osseous structure can go up to the 12th heaven, but not beyond.


The soul with 4th osseous structure can go up to the 16th heaven, but not beyond.

The 3rd set of bones take one utmost to the 9 Graiveyakas.

2nd 9 Anudishas.

1st 9 Annuttaras.

In determining the highest heaven attainable by one, the lowest kind of osseous structure should be taken account of, e. g. if one has the third and second mixed, he cannot go beyond the 9 Grai veyakas.

31. The rational being with 6 osseous structures goes up to Megha (the third hell). (The one with) five, four, and one osseous structure excepting Sripatika, etc., also goes beyond that up to fifth, sixth and seventh hells respectively.



Only beings with the highest osseous structure; can sin so deeply that they merit the tortures of the lowest or the with hell. That is, they alone can go down to the 7th hell. Those with four, i. e. the first four osseous structures, i. e. with all except Kilita and Sripatika go down to the 6th. Those with 5, i. e., all except Sripatika can go down to the 5th. Those with all the 6 structures of bone can go down to the third hell. For the 6 kinds of Samhanana, see Tattvartha Sutra Chapter 8.

32. And the last 3 osseous structures appear in the women of work-region (Karma-bhumi) ; the first three osseous structures are not (found in them). So it has been, said by the Conquerors.



Females of work region have only the last 3 osseous structure, and no higher ones. Therefore they can not go beyond the 16th heaven, as stated in Gatha 29. Only those who possess the first osseous structure, Vajra-Vrishabha Naracha Samhanana, can attain Liberation. Females of work region do not possess this structure, and therefore they can not attain Liberation from female bodies.

38. 5, 9, 2, 28, 4, 93, 2, and 5 respectively are said to be the sub-c1ass3s of (Karmic molecules) in Attendance or Existence, Satta) .



Under the influence of vibratory activity, and passions, Karmic molecules are attracted to, and bound with, a mundane soul, for a period. This is Bondage, Bandha. So long as they remain in Bondage, without coming into operation, they are said to be in attendance, Satta. During the period, they gradually come into operation, and shed off. This is called their operation, Udaya. In all these changes, there always remains a body of Karmic molecules attendant upon the soul. It is called Satta. Satta may be roughly Compared to a stream of running water. Within a particular area of the river, the water remains more or less the same in volume, although it is changing every moment as to the material water

which is constantly flowing away. The volume which is more or less constant is like Satta. Of course the Karmas in Satta fall off by austerities, etc. or on maturity. There are 148 sub-classes of attendant Karmic molecules.

Four error-feeding passions prevent right-belief arising in the soul. Four partial-vow-preventing Karmas, when operating do not allow a soul to adopt vows of a layman. Four total vow-preventing Karmas in their operation prevent a soul from following right conduct of saints, while four perfect-vow-preventing passions and nine quasi-passions obscure perfect right-conduct.
