**There
is no interval of time between any two incarnations. When a soul leaves one
body it enters another the very next moment of time. It does not remain
body-less, except when .it attains Nirvana.**

** 920. When the quiescence-period is
passed, the largest number of molecules shed off in the first Nisheka (of the
first Gunahani). The subsequent shedding upto the first Nishekas of the second
Gunahani decreases by a common difference.**

** **

**Commentary.**

** Gunahani is the number of terms of a
series, the sum of which is the number of molecules of a Unit of Bondage and
each term in which is half of the term immediately preceding it.**

** It would be useful to restate and
recapitulate here what has already been laid down and explained in verses 9 14
to 920.**

** A soul binds Karmic partials of subtle
matter as the result of its passionate thought-activity. The quantity of the
Karmic, and quasi- Karmic particles bound up or assimilated with the soul in
one moment of time is called ****ִֵ ϲ֬ ****Samaya
Prabaddha, Instant. Bondage, (verse 924). Such bondage is continuously going on
every moment of time.**

** The particles bound up begin to work,
to function, to have effect after an interval. During this interval, they lie
dormant, quiet, inactive, in-operative. This interval is called ****Ͼ֬
ֻ ****the period of quiescence (verse 913.)**

** The working, the functioning, the
effete, of the particles bound up continues for a definite pre-determined
period of time, during which some particles continue shedding off, while others
goon operating functioning, giving effect. The total period of shedding or
dripping off plus quiescence period is called ****ãן
S**

** The bundle, the group, the number of
particles shedding off in one instant is called Nibheka. The number
constituting these Nishekas varies. The largest number sheds off in the first
division of the duration period. Each of these divisions is- Galled a
Guna-haani Life. rally it means diminishing in efficiency. It is called so
because the number constituting the succeeding Nishekas or drippings goes on
diminishing in a regular arithmetical progression by a common difference. The
instants during which the particles constituting one Guneheani work, is called
Gunahani aayaam.**

** The Shedding or dripping of Karmas is
either spontaneous. involuntary, or forced. It is involuntary, by ascetic
practices. It is involuntary, spontaneous, natural in the case of all living
beings.**

** A Guna-haani is a group of Nishekas.
The number of molecules composing each of such Nishekas goes on decreasing by a
common difference upto the first Nishelia of the next Guna-haani,**

**Commentary.**

** We have taken as an illustration, the
case of a soul which binds 6900 molecules of a particular Karma in each
instant, during a period of 48 instants. **

we have omitted to consider the period of quiescence.**

** Looking to conditions in the 48th

be existence while of those bound in the 47th,(viz., the instant before the
last), only 6788 will be in existence 512 of them would have been shed off. And
of those bound in the first instant, only 9 would remain, 6291 would have been
shed off. This is shown on page 150 in the commentary to Verse 260 of Karma
Kanda Part I, Vol. VI of the Sacred Books of the Dianas Series. on Page 150,

Karma, the last (viz, Annyonyabhast rashi) is the product of (the number of
VargaShalaka, its square, and the first square-root of Palya; and the fourth
(viz. Nana Gunahant) is the sum of the Ardha-chhedas (the indices of the
ultimate integral square-root) of the above (3 figures).**

** **

**Commentary.**

** Let Palya be represented by 65536,
which is called Pannaththi elsewhere. The square-root of this is 256; the
square-root of 256 is 16, the square-root of 16 is 4, and the square-root of
is 2. There is no further square-root of 2 in integral value. Each Process of
extracting a square root is called a Varga-Shalaka.**

** The figure 65536 has 4 Varga Shalakas,
because the process of extracting a square root can be carried on in integral
numbers, for four steps only.**

** I n this case, Annyonyabhysta-rashi (****ϭꭵֳß
****) will be the product-(Varga Shalaka) x (Varga Shalaka) ^{2}
X / 65536 or 4X 4^{2 }x 256 = 4 X 4^{2} X4^{4} = 4^{7}
= 2^{14 }= 16384: Pannaththi = 65536= 2^{16} Annyonyabhyasta
Rashi is therefore 1/4 P (Pannaththi) = 16384.**

** The Ardna-Chhedas of the
threefigures.4, 16,256 are the indicter of their ultimate integral square root:
The figures 4, 16, 2266 and equal to 2 ^{2},2^{4}, 2^{8}.
The Ardha Chhedas are 2, 4 and 8.**

** The sum of these Ardha Chhedas 2+4+8=

divide the respective molecules (of each Gunaha1li) by the product (of instants

of the instants (of Gunahanis) minus one.**

** **

**Commentary.**

** Let us find out the common difference
for 8200. the molecules of the first Gunahani.**

** Nishekahara- 2 Gunahani instants = 3X2
= 16**

** 9200 -:- 8 x l6- ^{l/2} of
(8-1) = 3200-:8 x (16-^{7/2}) = 3200-:-8 x 25/2**

** =3200+100=32.**

** The common difference for 1600 will be
1600 :- 8 x 16-1/2 (8- 1)**

** = 1600-:-8 (16-7/2) = 1600-:-8x 25/2
= 1600-:- 100 = 16.**

** **

** The common difference of each Gunahani
also, is thus halt of that of the Gunahani preceding it.**

** This rule is limited in application to
the particular figures in the illustration. It is not a rule of general
application. For finding out the common difference, the divisor of the sums, in
the present case, is a constant quantity viz. 100. If the first term of a
series in Arithmetical progression is not given, the common difference would
vary indefinitely with the first term. The Algebraically formula of general

** The first Nisheka shedding in the

a quiescence. gradually increasing by one instant, till the last Nisheka sheds
off. The duration of the first Nisheka will be the least, while that of the

operation at each instant.**

**Commentary.**

** The Chart, annexure A, has been
prepared on the assumption that 6300 Karmic molecules are assimilated by a Soul
in each instant, and that the total duration of each unit of assimilation ****ִֵ
ϲ֬ ****is 48 instants. At each instant, a quantity of molecules
continues shedding off automatically according to a fixed proportion. The 48
instants are divisible in 6-groups called Gunahanis each consisting of 8
instants. The greatest number of moiecu1es falls off in the first**

**instant,
and the shedding in each subsequent instant of the first group decreases by a
constant figure, called the common difference till the first instant of the
next group. The common difference in the second group is half of what it was in
the first group; and the common difference continues to be halved till the last
6th group of 8 instants, when it is reduced to one. This has been worked out in
detail in the Chart annexture A. It will appear therefrom that in the last, the
48th instant the balance of 9 molecules will fall off to complete the. 6800; 10
will shed off in the 47th,11 in the 46th, and so on as shown in the Chart,
until we find 512 falling off in the first instant or the 6300 assimilated in
the and instant, 0 will shed off in the 5th instant, 11 in the 47th and so on,
and so on. The molecules which remain in existence in the 48th instant are the
6300 which were bound in that instant, 5788 out of those bound in the 47th
instant, and so on and on till we come to 9 of those bound in the first
instant. Their total will come to 71,304.**

** It may be noted that one Samaya
Prabaddha has molecules varying, in maximum to an infinite fraction of the
total number of liberated souls, (which is infinite), and in minimum to
infinite times the number of all (Abhavya) non-liberal souls.**

multiplied by one Samaya Prbaddha. It will be the sum of the existing molecules
of all durations as shown in the triangular chart. (Annexure A).**

** **

**Commentary.**

** The
triangular chart will show that in the 48th instant, the molecule bound at bat

only are remaining out of the 6300 bound in the 1st instant. Their total will
be 71304. It is less than 1 ^{1/2 }of the 3 instants of Gunahani x 6300.
Here the instants of each Gunahani are 8.**

** Then 8 x 3/2 x 6300 = 75600.**

** 71304 is less than 75600 by 4296.**

Samaya Prabadhha. It goes on gradually decreasing (in other lines.)**

** **

**Commentary.**

** The total of each Gunahani is half of
the one preceding it, which is tantamount to the statement that it is equal to
the balance after deducting it from the preceding one. The rest is obvious at a

** The proportionate distribution of 6800

** 3200, 1600, 800, 400, 200, 100.**

** Therefore the statement in the above
Verse that the total mole cules in a
Gunahani are half of those in the one immediately preceding, is correct. So is
the statement that they are equal to the balance between the molecules in the
two Guhahanis in juxta-position.**

** **

**Commentary.**

** Places of equal duration after
intervals are places where Karmas with equal duration continue to be bound for
some time, and not continuously. This happens in the case of such
wrong-believers as are on the point of acquiring Right Belief, or among Right
Believers attaining the Partial-vow or Total vow spiritual stage, or
ascending the subsidential or destructive ladder. There ere a few thousand such
places. To take an Example: A Saint in Lower thought-activity in the 7th
Spiritual stage may bind Knowledge-obscuring and other I-Armas of equal
duration, within crore x crore sagars during an Anter-Muhurta. Thereafter, the
duration is decreased by an innumerable part of a Palya, and he will bind
Karmas of such reduced equal duration for another Antar-Muhurta. This procedure
of gradual decrease in bondage of equal duration, happens several thousand
times in the case of a saint in the 7th Spiritual stage.**

** In the 8th, 9th and 10th stages, a
similar process of bondage will occur**

**At a
later period, in the 10th Stage, however, a saint will bind Feeling-Karma for
12 Muhurtas, Body-making and Family determining Karmas for 8 Muhurtas, and
other Karmas for one Antar-Muhurta.**

** Other souls-cannot have such gradual
reductions, and bondage of equal duration, during an Antar-Muhurta. They will
have all sorts of duration places, one instant less the maximum to the minimum
duration,**

** Deluding Karma has the largest number
of places for duration bondage. The number is obtained by multiplying the
places for obstructive Karma duration-bondage by the innumerable part of a
Palya. The process of multiplication is thus repeated three times, once for
body and family Karmas, again for the 2 obscuring, feeling. and obstructive

thought-activities occasioning duration-bondage are (equal to those of ) the

innumerable part of (those of) duration.**

** **

**Commentary.**

** The number of instants in the duration
of a Karma vary from the minimum to the maximum. These constitute the various
degrees of duration. Dividing them by Nana-Gunahani we get the number of
instants in one Gunahaani. The same rule applies to the number of
thought-activities causing duration.**

** Nana Gunahanis of Deluding Karma are
equal to the Ardha-chhedas of a Palya, minus the Ardhachhedas of Varga Shalaka
of a Palya. The same being divided by innumerable will be the Nanaguna-hani in
those thought activities. The first Nisheka comprises all those
thought-activities, which .cause bondage of the least .duration. Then adding
the common difference (Chaya) we get the second Nisheka which causes bondage of
a duration longer by one instant, than that of the former. The common
difference is obtained by dividing, the first Nisheka plus one, by the instants
of a Gunahani. This will be added at each step gradually till the last Nisheka,
which brings about the maximum duration.**

** Referring to verse 907, to the
commentary there to, and to the chart given th6reunde:- we find that in the lower-thought-activity
stage a person starting late on the path of purity in thought-activities may
overtake one who has had an earlier start. In the 88me way, different persons
with similar passionate thoughts may bind different durations of age-karma, and
different persons with dissimilar passionate vibrations-passions and
thought-paints-may bind age-karma of the same duration. This probability 01
overlapping or overtaking is illustrated in a tabular form by figures and is
termed Anukrishti. This has also been explained in some detail in the
commentary to years 953 and graphically illustrated in the chart thereunder.**

** 969. Hail Gommata (Rai, Chamundrai),
who established an image (of Shri Bahubali, 56 feet high at Shravana. Belgola);
whose face has been seen by celestials of Sarvartha Siddhi, (the highest of the
heavens) and by saints possessed of high and full visnal knowledge.**

** 970. Hail that Raja, who constructed a
Jain temple, unequalled in the three worlds, which has foundations bard like
diamond and which has golden domes and which is like Ishat-prag-bhara (the
eighth earth which comprises Siddha Shila).**

established a pillar with the image of a Yaksha on its top, such that the rays
emanating from the points of its coronet washed like water the pure feet of
the Siddhas.**

** This is in poetic language a reference
to a high column on the larger hill at Shravana Belgola.**

** 972. May (Raja Chamundrai) named Vir
Martanda (or) Gommatrai be the ever victorious, who prepared the vernacular (commentary in Canarese),
while Gommatsara was being written.**

** **

**Commentary.**

** Gommattsara was edited and collected
by Shri Nemichandra Chakravarti at the request of Raja Chaml1ndrai, whose
qualifications have been declared in such -high language by the author in the
above Verse. It appears that when the saint was editing the book in Prakrit,
its explanation was being written in Canarese by the Raja himself at the feet
of the saint. The verses themselves cannot be fully understood without the aid
of the Commentary. Later on, Brahmachari Keshava translated the Canarese
commentary into Sanskrit. A Hindi version was afterwards prepared by Pandit
Todarmal of Jaipur. The English translation is based on the Sanskrit and Hindi
Commentaries.**
