Commentary.

 

The thought-activity which goes on continuously increasing or decreasing without retracing its increase or decrease is called unreturnable Aparivartamina. Its stages between its two ends are its medium. And the returnable (Parivartamana) is where the increase or decrease is not continuous, but after increase or decrease for some time there is a change and a return backwards to the thought-activity with which the start was made.

180. The power (of fruition) of the (4) destructive (Karmas, i.e., knowledge-and conation obscuring, deluding and obstructive Karmas) is said to be like the creepers (Lata), wood (Daru), bone (Asthi), and stone (Pashana), (where the hardness increases at every step). And (from the creeper degree) up to an infinite part of the wood (degree) the degrees are partially-destructive (Desha Ghati), and all (the degrees.) beyond that, (aer all-destructive Sarvaghatl).

 

Commentary.

Partially-destructive Karmas are those which do not wholly destroy the qualities of the soul. Except the deluding Karmas. Their destructive-subsidence always exists in a greater or less degree, resulting in some quantity of the soul being unobscured. while all destructive Karmas - those which. Totally obscure the quality of a soul, which can only be exposed by their full destruction. For example, perfect knowledge obscuring Karma is all-destructive. Until it is destroyed, not a bit of perfect knowledge is possible. Sensitive and scriptural knowledge-obscuring Karmas are partially destructive. Their destructive-subsidence always exists in every mundane soul; therefore each soul from one-sensed to five sensed has got some sensitive and letterless scriptural knowledge.

181. This partially (destructive power of fruition,

An infinite part of that(which is left of the) wood(class)a (forms) the mixed (right-and-wrong-belief, Samyaktva. mithyatva sub-class of the right-belief-deluding Karma). The remaining infinite parts (of wood class and the whole of) the bone (and) the stone (classes of) powers of fruition (form) the wrong-belief (Mithyatva sub-class of the right belief-deluding Karma).

 

Commentary.

 

The wholly destructive power of fruition is separate for the mixed-right-and-wrong-belief sub-class of the right-belief deluding Karma. The following chart shows the distribution of the four classes of the power of fruition over the 3 sub-classes of the right belief-deluding-Karma.

The following chart shows that the harder or intense kind of fruition always includes the softer or milder kind; but not vice versa. For example wrong-belief may be of 3 degrees of fruition

 

(1) Of the utmost intensity represented by the hardness of stone. This includes the hardness of bone and the maximum hardness of wood.

(2) Of the intensity represented by the hardness of bone. It includes the maximum hardness of wood.

(3) Of the intensity represented by the maximum hardness of wood. Similarly right-belief-clouded by wrong-belief is of 2 kinds:

(1) Of the softness of the young wood. This includes the soft ness of a creeper.

(2) Of the softness of a creeper which necessarily excludes even the comparative hardness of soft young-wood.

 

It would be seen that the intensity of mixed-right-and-wrong belief is represented only by the medium hardness of wood. It will have infinite degrees of hardness, but its hardness as a class remail. Is milder than the hardness of a bone and in tenser than the hardness or softness of a creeper. See chart below :

182. The seventeen (sub-classes of) partially destructive Karmas, (i. e.) the (7) (partially destructive, i.e. 4 knowledge and 3 conation)-obscuring, (the 5) obstructive, the (4) perfect-right-conduct-preventing passions, and the masculine sex inclination are modified in the 4 kinds of thought activity, (i.e., have the 4 kinds of intensity of fruition corresponding to the hardness of creeper, wood, bone, and stone, the higher hardness of course including the lower as given in the diagram below). And the others have 3 kinds of thought-activity.

 

Commentary.

 

The destructive sub-classes of Karmas are 47, 5 knowledge obscuring, 9 conation-obscuring, 28 deluding and 5 obstructive. Of these 17 partially-destructive are dealt with above. They have all the four degrees of intensity. Two, namely the right-wrong belief, and clouded right-belief are not bound at all. They merely appear in the bondage of wrong belief, and emerge as distinct subclasses in the operation of the wrong-belief sub-class; i. e., the bondage is only of wrong-belief; but its operation is in the form of all these 3 sub-classes, if the wrong-believer from the 1st stage of wrong-belief by the subsidence of Karmas, attains right-belief and passes on to the 4th stage. This subsidence lasts for one Antarmuhurta and in this interval the matter of the wrong-belief-Karma splits up into the 3 kinds of, wrong-belief, right-wrong-belief, and clouded-right-belief. After the antar-muhurta of subsidence, the soul passes into the stage corresponding to any of these three, which-ever may come into operation. It is thus that although the bondage is of wrong-belief only, the operation is of the three-subclasses.

 

The four kinds of intensity as they are distributed in the above 3 sub-classes have been dealt with in Gatha 181.

 

Thus leaving these 20 aside, we are left with 27. These may be considered in two groups, 19 of wholly destructive and 8 of partially destructive. In the 19 wholly destructive, i.e., in perfect knowledge obscuring, perfect-conation-obscuring, somnambulism, deep sleep, heavy drowsiness, sleep and drowsiness, and in the 12, i. e., error-feeding, partial and total vow-preventing classes of the 4 passions anger, pride, deceit and greed, there are only 3 degrees of fruition in intensity corresponding to the hardness of stone, bone, and wood as given in the chart below:

 

And in the 8 partially destructive minor passions, i. e., all the nine except male inclination, there are only 3 degrees of intensity of fruition corresponding to stone, bone and wood as given below :

 

Notice that in the 3 degrees of the 19, creeper is omitted; but it is included in the 3 degrees of the eight.

 

A partially destructive sub-class at its lowest may have a very very mild intensity like the softness of the creeper. But even the lowest kind of a wholly destructive Karma in intensity is like the medium hardness of wood.

Commentary.

 

Of the total 148 sub-classes, only 120 are bound, i. e., all except the right-wrong-belief, and clouded-right-belief, sub-classes of the right-belief deluding Karma; 5 molecular bond ages, 5 intrusions, and 16 out of 20 sub-classes of touch, taste, smell and colour.

 

All the 120 operate, but in its operation the wrong-belief sub-class of right-belief-deluding Karma is spilt in three parts; therefore the bondage is of 120, but the operation is of 122. Of these 122, 47 are destructive. They are 5 know I edge-obscuring, 9 conation. obscuring, 28 deluding and 5 obstructive. The rest i. e., 75 are non-destructive. Of these 75, 42 involve merit and 33 demerit. But as all Karmas are material and matter has always some kind of touch. taste, smell and colour, these four must be added to these 33, thus making the demerit sub-classes 37.

 

The degrees of fruition of the 42 merit and 37 demerit sub classes are of 3 kinds. The lowest degree of merit or of demerit alone is absent. Each of the higher degrees includes the lower one. This is shown in the diagram given below :

185. (The soul) binds by causes brought about by itself to all its units (P'radeshas) (the Karmic molecules) fit to become Karmas which occupy one-body-extent (Eka Kshetra). (These molecules are) un begun (Anadi), begun (Sad i) , or both (ubhaya).

 

Commentary.

 

In the above definition of molecule Eka Kshetra; one-body-extent is the space occupied by the lowest possible body of a fine undevelopable common soul; see No.1 in the table under Gatha 101 of Jiva Kanda page 76). This is in contra-distinction to Aneka-kshetra or not-one-body-extent which is all the space except the one-body extent.

 

Yogyam - fit to become Karma. Karmic molecules (Karma Vargana) are dead matter. They never become living. But they can be united by the living soul with itself; and then they are called Karmas.

Svaka-hetubhih -The soul is alone responsible for all its activity which is the real cause of the bondage of Karmic matter. Five such causes are given in Jain Siddhanta, Wrong-belief, Mithyatva; Vowlessness, Avirata; Carelessness, Pramarla; Passions, Kashaya; and Virbration, Yoga.

 

Anadi or Unbegun molecules are those which never have been bound to any soul. This can be easily understood, when we remember that molecules of other kinds of matter are constantly being transformed into Karmic molecules, which are obviously virgin of all bondage.

 

Sadi or begun are those molecules whose - bondage has already begun, i. e., which have been bound already to some soul or other and having been shed by that are bound again. Roughly the anonlogy is the same as that of new and second hand clothes.

Thus there are 3 pairs of distinctions: - One-body and not-one-body-extent; fit and unfit to become Karma; and begun and un-begun; and there are 8 divisions (2 x 2 x 2):

 

1. 2. One-body-extent, fit, begun and unbegun.

188. The maximum unit of bondage (Samaya Prabaddha) multiplied by (the instants of) past time, (the product) being multiplied by the total (number of) souls is the begun (Sardi or second-hand Karmic matter). So it is has been said.

 

Commentary.

 

Jyestha -The maximum unit of bondage is that which is produced by the maximum vibratory activity of the soul. All begun or second-hand Karmic matter is that which has been bound to any soul at least once. Therefore the whole of it must be included in the total matter which has been bound to all the souls. If we suppose ever-y instant of their existence to have been one of activity corers. pounding to maximum bondage, its maximum bondage is possible, but it is not actually maximum bondage. This is so because every soul in every instant of its existence is not necessarily with the maximum vibratory thought-activity. Therefore the begun or second-hand Karmic matter must be less than the above product.

Matter is of two, kinds, fit for Karmic bondage or unfit for Karmic bondage. Each is of two kinds (1) begun or Sadi which was bound and then shed off and (2) unbegun or Anadi which has not yet been bound. This mundane soul at every instant absorbs fit matter sometimes begun, sometimes unbegun, 'sometimes mixed.

Commentary.

Note that the transformation into the age Karma is possible only in the 8 "declining-times" Apakarsha-Kala (see. Jiva Kanga Gatha 518 page 258). Otherwise the unit of bondage is transformed into the remaining 7 Karmas up to 9th stage. In the 10th there is no transformation into the Deluding Karma. In the 11th, 12th and 13th stages the transformation is only into the pleasure (sata.) Feeling (Vedaniya) Karma.

Commentary.

 

In one instant there is bondage of either pleasure or pain feeling; of high or low family and of one of the 4 kinds of age-Karma. Therefore there is no distribution in sub-classe3 of feeling, family and age-Karma. Let us take an example of decreasing matter. The matter of scriptural knowledge-obscuring- Karma is less than that of the sensitive knowledge obscuring Karma and the matter of visual knowledge-obscuring Karma is less than that of the scriptural knowledge-obscuring Karma.

 

As example of increasing matter, the matter of gain-obstructive Karma is more than that of charity-obstructive Karma; and that of enjoyment-obstructive Karma is more than that of the gain obstructive Karma; and so on.

Although sensitive, scriptural, visual, and mental knowledge obscuring and ocular, non-ocular and visual conation-obscuring; and perfect conduct-preventing 4 passions, and 9 quasi passions, sub. classes are partially-destructive, yet each of them contains, some matter which fully obscures the nature of all. Where Sarva-Ghati is operative also, one cannot have a bit of its opposite nature, for example ,me-sensed beings have not got ocular conation, because there is operation of matter of all ocular-conation-obscuring Karmas.

Commentary.

Obviously the distinction of partially-destructive, Desha-Ghati and wholly-destructive Sarva-Ghati applies only to the sub-classes of 4 destructive Karmas. So does also the distinction as to the 4 degrees of intensity of fruition, as exemplified by the degrees of hardness of stone, bone, wood and creeper. The hardness of a creeper and an infinite part of wood is confined to the partially destructive Karmas. Beyond that there are the wholly destructive, see Gatha!180.

 

Let 3100 be the whole matter bound in one instant, 40 instants be the duration, Nana Gunahani =5, Gunahani=8, than 2'Gunahani =16 and Anyonya bhastarashi = 32.

 

Then 3100+ (32-1) = 100e> the number of, molecules in last Gunabani of stone kind of matter.

 

Then five Gunahanis will be 100 + 200+400 + 800 + 1,600. Total=3,100.

 

Here 1,606 molecules is the number of creeper kind of partially destructive Karmas. A little more than this 1,600, i.e., 1,600 adding some thing equal to infinite part, of wood kind is the total number of molecules of partially destructive Karmas. The remaining is the number of molecules of wholly destructive Karmas.

Infinite part of the molecules of any destructive Karma is the number of wholly-destructive-matter and the remaining many parts is that of partially. destructive matter.

Similarly the matter of conation-obscuring Karma should be divided into wholly and partially-destructive sub-classes.

 

As to obstructive Karma, all its sub-classes are partially-destructive. So it should be distributed in them only.

 

Let the whole matter = u/8 and an innumerable part of an Avali=9 which is the divisor, then u/8% 9 =u/8 x 9 is one part, and Bahubhaga or many parts = 8U/p. It should be equally divided into 5 sub-classes as below :

Commentary.

 

Now to divide the matter of deluding Karma, let u/8 be the whole matter. It should be divided by an infinite number as seen by the Conquerors, which may be taken to be equal to I.

 

Then u/8I = wholly destructive matter and u (I-l)/8I=partially destructive matter.

 

This may be divided by a divisor of Avali / Innumerable let it be 9. Then

many parts = 8 u (I-1) / 8I x 9 It should be divided into 2, then 8 u (I-1) / 8I x 9 =the matter of 5 minor passions and the remaining 8 u (1-1) / 8I x 9 x 2 and that one part u(I-1) / 81 x 9 and that one part u (I-1) / 8I x 9, these two together is equal to the matter of perfect-right-conduct-preventing passions.

 

The wholly destructive matter- u/8I. It should be distributed among 17 sub-classes.

 

Let the divisior = Avali / Innumerable = 9.

 

Then the Quotient= u/8Ix 9 and many parts 8u/8Ix9. This should be equally divided into 17 sub-classes in order :

 

(1) Wrong-belief, (2) error-feeding greed, (3) error-feeding deceit, (4) error-feeding anger, (5) error-feeding pride, (6) perfect conduct preventing greed, (7) perfect-conduct preventing deceit, (8) perfect-conduct preventing anger, (9) perfect-conduct preventing pride, (10) full-vow-preventing greed, (11) full-vow-preventing deceit, (12) full-vow-preventing anger, (13) full-vow-preventing pride, (14) partial-vow-preventing greed, (15) partial-vow-preventbig deceit, (16) partial-vow-preventing anger, (17) partial vow-preventing pride.

 

The balance one part, i. e., u/81x 9 should again be divided by the common divisor- =Avali/Innumerable = 9 and many parts soul added to the matter of the first wrong-belief. Again the balance one part to be divided by 9, many parts should be added to the second i.e. error-feeding greed, In this way we should go on. The last balance one part should be added to the 17th, i. e., partial-vowpreventing pride.

 

The matter of partially-destructive for the perfect-conduct preventing passions (8u(I-I)/8I x 9 x 2 + u(I-1)/8Ix9).

 

This should be divided into 4 passions. First divide by the common divisor 9, many parts should be equally divided into four and distributed to its greed, deceit, anger and pride in order, The balance one part again divided by 9, many parts should be added to greed and so on. The balance last part should be added to pride.

 

The matter of minor passions = 8 u (I-1) / 8I x 9 x 2 should be divided similarly into 5 parts, as 5 of 9 are bound at a time.

 

Being divided by 9 as common divisor, many parts should be equally divided in the following order (1) any of 3 inclinations (2) indulgence or enliu1 (3) laughter or sorrow (4) fear, (5) disgust.

 

Then the balance one part should again be divided by 9 and many parts should be given to (1) inclination and the balance one part should again be divided by 9; many parts should be added to (2) indulgence or ennui and so on. Lastly the balance should be given to (5) disgust which win have least matter.

 

Such distribution is done up to the 8th stage of new-thought activity. In the 9th stage of advanced-thought-activity the whole matter should be given to male-inclination, as only this out of 5 is bound there.

 

The matter of perfect-right-conduct-preventing Karma should be distributed among four up to the part of the 9th stage up to which anger is bound; after that in three in the part of the 9th where up to which pride is bound; then in two up to which deceit-is. bound, then only to greed.
