While in the saint who has neither Tirthankara Karma nor the Assimilative two, only 77 will be found in existence till the last but one instant of the 14th stage.

623. In hellish beings ninety-two, (ninety).one, and ninety, and in all the sub humans earth-bodied etc... ninety, two, ninety, eighty-eight, eighty-four and eighty-two are in existence.

 

Commentary.

Those hellish beings who have not yet bound Tirthankara Karma, will have 92 in existence; those who have bound Tirthankara, but not the Assimilative two, will have only 91; while those who have neither bound Tirthankara nor Assimilative two, will have only 90. All sub-humans can have any of the five. Those who have not got bondage of Tirthankara, will have only 92, and those with-out bondage of Tirthankara and Assimilative will have 90. Those who have no bondage of these three and of celestial condition and Migratory form will have existence of 88; while those who along with these five have not bound hellish condition and migratory form, fluid body and limbs will have 84 in existence. Lastly those who along with these 9, have not got bondage of human condition and migratory form will have 82 in existence. It appears that a soul having already bound Tirthankara Karma will not go down to sub-human condition; so the existence of 93 is not possible in them.

625. There are respectively even and odd places in Tirthankaras and (ordinary) omniscients. The Assimilative (saints have) ninety-three and (ninety-two). while the first four places are found in celestials.

 

Commentary.

Tirthankaras. in the 18th stage, will have even places of 80 and 78; and in 14th stage, of 80, 78 and 10; while ordinary omniscients will have odd places of 79 and 77 in 18th, and of 79, 77 and 9 in the 14th stage.

The Assimilative saints will have 98, when they have got bondage of Tirthankara Karma; but only 92 on non-bondage of ,Tirthankara Karma. Celestials have the first four places as below :

626. (There are) existence, places of ninety-two, ; and ninety, only among the Residentials three. the beings of Enjoyment-region. and those of the four underneath earth5. And (the place of) ninety (is) in Downfall stage.

 

Commentary.

In Verse 625. we have shown places of 93 and 91 also in celestials. As a soul with Tirthankara Karma in existence will not be born in the Residential three, so there cannot be places of 99 or 91 (which include Tirthankara Karma) in the residentials three. Similarly such a soul will not be born in Enjoyment region, so humans and sub-humans of that region will not have 98 and 91. A soul with Tirthanakara Karma in existence cannot go to hell beyond the third; so beings residing in 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th hells will not have 99 and 91.

A soul with Tirthankara or Assimilative two goes to Downfall stage. The place of 90 only is therefore possible, among beings in that stage.

Commentary.

This verse deals with the main 8 classes of Karmas.

When age Karma is bound, there is bondage of all the 8 Karmas, otherwise only of 7. Bondage of Age and Deluding Karma ceases in the 10th stage, so there is bondage of six only in that stage. In the 11th, 12th and 13th stages, only one, the Feeling Karma is bound. There is no bondage of any Karma in the 14th stage. Till the 10th stage, all the 8 Karmas are in Operation and Existence also.) I n the 11th stage, there is Operation of seven, except Deluding Karma, but all the eight are in Existence. In the 12th stage there is both Operation and Existence of seven excepting Deluding Karma. In the 13th stage there is Operation and Existence of four only. So when there is bondage of one Karma, there are three variations. In the 14th stage of non-bondage; there is Operation and Existence at four Karmas. The following table, with the explanation below shows the conditions of Bondage, Operation and Existence of 8 Karmas.

631-632. With regard to the second (Conation) obscuring Karma, when nine (sub-classes) are bound. five or four (of them) are operative (at a time). while nine remain in Existence; the same, when six are bound; and on bondage of four, the same; and there is existence of six also. When bondage ceases, five or four are in Operation. and nine or six are in Existence; there are also four, both (in Operation and Existence).

 

Having described the third (Feeling Karma), Family and Age (Karmas), I shall thereafter describe Deluding (Karma).

 

Commentary.

Conation-obscuring Karma has 9 sub-classes. All are bound in Wrong belief and Downfall stages at a time, but only four, excepting sleep, or five taking lout of 5 kinds of sleep Karma, operate at a time, while all the 9 remain in Existence. The three, Somnambulism, Deep sleep and Deep-drowsiness cease to bind from third stage till the first part of the 8th stage of both the ladders. Thus there is bondage of 6 while there is operation of 4 or 5 as above, and all the nine remain in Existence. Sleep and Drowsiness cease to bind from the 2nd part of the 8th stage to the Subsidential l0th stage or to Destructive 9th stage, where 16 sub-classes are destroyed; thus there is Bondage of four only, but 4 or 5 Operate and 9 remain in Existence. From the 9th stage of Destructive ladder where 16 are de3troyed to the 10th, are in Bondage, or 5 are Operative and 6 only are in Existence. On cessation of their Bondage, or 5 operate in both the 11th and 12th stages, but there is Existence of 9 in 11th, and of 6 in 12th till last but one instant; while in its last instant only are in Operation and Existence both. This is shown below in a tabular form.

633-634. Either of the (two) Pleasing and Painful Feeling (Karmas), as may be possible, Bind and Operate (at a time), while both (of them) remain in Existence till the Vibratory (Omniscient stage). In the last (Non-vibrating stage), the one which is Operative remains in Existence (also. There are four combinations of each place of Feeling (Karma) till the 6th (stage), two combinations till the Vibrating, conqueror (stage); while four combinations (are possible) in Non-vibrating Conquerors.

 

Commentary.

Feeling Karma is of two kind... Pleasure and Pain. Only one of them is bound and is operative at a time. Both cannot be bound nor can they operate simultaneously. But both of them can be found in Existence together. From the first to the 6th stage of Imperfect Vows, there is carelessness and outward dealings with persons and things. The stages from 7th onwards are all found when a saint is absorbed in soul contemplation. Therefore till 6th there are four combinations in Feeling Karma, thus :

(1) There may be Bondage and Operation of Pleasure only, with Existent of both Pain and Pleasure. This is possible when a soul enjoys a pleasure, with in-ward non attachment..

(2) There may be Bondage of Pleasure, but Operation of Pain, with Existence of both. This is possible when a soul calmly suffers troubles and misfortunes.

(3) There may be Bondage of pain, but Operation or Pleasure, with Existence of both. This is possible when a soul deeply indulges in sensual gratifications.

(4) There may be Bondage and Operation of Pain only, with Existence of both. This happens when a soul has painful and vexing thought activity at the time of sufferings. diseases, and calamities.

Those fire and air-bodied souls which have untwisted. High Family Karma, have only Low Family Karma in Existence throughout their life-duration. When they die and take birth in the rest, One-sensed, not all sensed. all-sensed beings. they have Family Karma in existence, at least for one antar muhurta from the instant of their birth.

Commentary.

There are altogether 7 combinations in Family Karma as follows:

(I) Bondage and Operation of Low, with Existence of Low Family Karma.

(2) Bondage and Operation of Low, with existence of High and Low.

(3) Bondage of Low, Operation of High, and Existence of both.

(4) Bondage and Operation of High, with existence of both.

(5) Bondage of High, operation of Low, with Existence of both.

(6) No bondage, but Operation of High and Existence of both.

(7) No bondage, but Operation and Existence of High only.

All these combinations are possible on account of different thought-activities. A person having operation of High Family Karma is proud of his position or despises others, then he will bind Low family Karma. Again if the soul, so situated, is not elated with pride, but loves and praises anothers good qualities, it will bind High Family Karma.

A person having Operation of Low Family Karma is well-behaved, and has regard for other good persons of high conduct, then he will bind High Family Karma.

To consider these combinations with reference to stages. The first five are possible in Wrong-belief Sage; four combinations from second to 5th in Downfall stage, because fire and air-bodied souls are never found in this stage. There are only two combinations, the fourth and the fifth in the 3 stages, 3rd to 5th. There is only one combination, the 4th, curing 5 stages, from 6th to 10th. In stages from 11th to 13th, there is only one, the 6th combination. In the 14th stage there are two com binalions the 6th and 7th; till its last but one instant there is operation of High with existence of both but in the last instant only High Family Karana is in Operation and Existence. These combinations of Bondage, Operation, and Existence of High and Low Family Karma in the 14 stages are shown below in tabular form (h = High, I = Low, b= Both.

This decrease is called) Apavartanaghata.

Commentary.

Age Karma is not bound at every moment like the other seven classes of Karmas. It is not bound in celestial, hellish, and in beings of the Enjoyment region before 6 months remain in their life duration, and in humans and sub-humans of work-region before 1/3rd of their age is yet to pass. During the last six months of the age in the case of the forcer and during a third period of age in case of the caller a soul has 6 occasions for bondage of age Karma each lasting for one Antar-muhurta. Such an (casino comes after the expiry of two-thirds of the age then remaining. A celestial will have the first occasion when 6 months remain in his life. The second will come when months have passed away. the third time when 2/3rd of the 2 months have expired. The other 5 occasions may be calculated in this earner. In humans of Work region the first occasion will come when 1/3rd of life remains. The second on expiry of 1/3rd of the remaining 2/3rd and so on. Take the case of a person who has an age of 81 years. The first occasion comes at the age of 54, second at the age of 72. third at the age of 78 and so on. After it has been bound. its duration can be increased, or lessened or maintained on subsequent occasions for bondage of age Karma. Only one sub class of age Karma can be bound by a soul in its life. time.

644. Thus. with reference to non, bondage. bondage as well as over, bondage (Uparata Bandha). as a rule there are three com, binations for each age Karma in one life of one soul.

 

Commentary.

A soul in any of the four conditions .of existence has operation of that very age in which condition it is existing. That is called the Operative (Bhujyamana) age. But it has to bind any of the four age Karmas for future life. Age Karma is however bound on special occasions only as stated before, so there are three combination periods in that very life :

 

(1) That in which age Karma is bound; (2) that in which age Karma is bound; (3) that in which age Karma for future life has already been bound. which is called over-bondage period. In both of the latter periods, there is Existence of two age Karmas, with Operation of one only.

There are thus 3 combinations as below in respect of each Age-Karma.

645. Taking the three combinations of one age- (Karma) and multiplying (them) with (the number of) age (Karmas) possible (to be bound in one condition of life), (we get) combinations in one condition of life, with reference to different souls. (/n order to get) unreported combinations we must subtract one (from the number of age possible to be bound and the result) be deducted from the total (combinations in each condition of life).

 

Commentary.

Hellish beings can bind two age-Karma only i. e., sub-human and human, and the combinations are :2 x 3 = 6.

Unrepeated combinations are 6 (2 1) = 5.

Celestial beings also bind the two age. Karma, sub-human and human, so the total com binations are 6 and unr-epeated ones are 5. Humans and sub-humans, both, can bind all the foul ages; total combinations for each are 4x3=12. Unrepeated combination for each are 12-(4-1)=9.

Thus total combinations for the 4 condition of life will be 6+6+ 12+12=36, and Unrepeated combinations for them will be 5+5+ 9+9:28

Commentary.

As shown under Verse 645, all the unrepeated combinations in the wrong belief stage in hellish, sub-human, human and celestial conditions 5+9+9+5=28 are found. Hellish age is not bound by a soul in the Downfall stage, so N-S.H.-2 and N-H-2 will not be counted in sub-human and human conditions. 26 combinations will thus be found.

Commentary.

As age Karma .is not bound in mixed stage, so S/H-N-2. H-N-2 in hellish condition, N-S/H-2-S/H-S/H-2, H-S/H-2, C-S/H.-2 in sub-human condition, the same I in human condition, and S/HB-2 and H-O-2 in celestial condition should not be taken into account. Thus there will be 3+5+5+3=16 COJT binations only. The hellish and celestial beings do not bind sub-human age in Vowless stage, so S/H-N-2 and S/H-C-2 will not be taken into account; thus there V m be only 4 combinations in each of them. Sub-humans and humans in Vowless stage do not bind any other age than the celestial, therefore N-S/H-2, S/H-S/H-2, H-S/H-2 and N-H-2, S H-H-2, H-H-2 respectively will be deducted from combinations of both of them thus leaving 6 combinations in each of two. Total com binations in vowelss stage will be 4+4+6+6=20.

(There are) three combinations in (each of) the sixth and seventh stages, two in each (of the four stages) of sub-sidential (ladder) and one in each (of the six stages) of the Destructive.

 

Commentary.

Celestial age only can be bound in partial-vow stage; so there will be three combinations o-S/H-I; C-S/H-2 C/O/B-S/H-2 in sub-humans and also three combinations O-H-I; C-H-2; C/O/BH-2 in humans. The latter three combinations are possible in each of 6th and 7th stages. As there is no bondage of age Karma beyond the 7th Hage, there will be only two combinations such as O-H-I and CIOIB-H-2 in each of 8th, 9th and 10th and 11th stages of subsidential ladder, and only one i. e., C-H-I in 8th and 9th, 10th, 11th, 13th, and 14th stages where Karmas are being destroyed.

(twenty, seven and twenty six). In second stage (they respectively are) twenty-one; the three nine. (eight and seven) and twenty eight.

 

Commentary.

It has been shown before, that a soul in the Wrong belief stage can bind only 22 sub-classes of Deluding Karma at a time i. e., the 16 main passions, Wrong belief, Fear and Disgust with anyone of the three sex inclinations, anyone of the two Indulgence and Ennui, and anyone of the two Laughter and Sorrow. In the same stage a soul can have operation of 10, 9, 8 or 7 sub-classes of Deluding Karma at a time, i. e , Wrong belief, 4, kinds of anger, pride, deceit or greed, Fear and Disgust, anyone of the three sexes, any of the two Indulgence and Ennui, and any of two Laughter and Sorrow. They are 10. Taking away either fear or disgust, they will be 9. Leaving out both of them, they will be 8. When a soul which has transformed Errorfeeding passions into lesser ones comes down to Wrong. belief stage, it will not have Operation of Error feeding passions for an Avali. Then one kind of the 4 passions will not operate. Thus there will be 9, 8 or 7 in Operation at a time. Thus there are only places of Operation in this stage But therein be Existence of all the 28, or 27 excepting Clouded-belief or of 6 excepting Mixed and Clouded belief.

 

I n Downfall stage. Wrong-belief will not be bound; thus there will be bondage of 21 at a time. It should. benighted that Common sex is also not bound in this stage. yet the number of sub-classes bound at a time will not be less than 21. Wrong belief Karma will not operate, therefore 9, 8, or 7 will operate at a time in this stage. All the 28 sub-classes must be in Existence here, because this stage is always acquired by a soul when falling from the Subsidential right belief in the 4th stage, where matter of Wrong belief Karma takes three forms of Wrong. belief, Mixed and Clouded-belief.

Commentary.

As the four Error feeding passions are not bound in the Mixed stage, the numbed of sub-classes in Hondas at a time will be 21-4=17. It should be noted. that here female sex is not bound, yet the number of binding sub-classes will not 1:1 less than 17. As there will be no operation of any of the four Error feeding passions, one sub- class will be lessened, but mixed sub-class will be in operation, thus there will be operation of 9 or 8 or 7 in this stage. There will be existence of 28 or 24 only or transformation of four error. feeding passions. In Vow less stage, the same 17 as in Mixed stage are bound. The. Operation-pieces 9.re of 9, B, 7, 6 with reference to non-operation of Error-feeding passions, arid operation of Clouded. belief and its n-n-operation in Subsidential and Destructive right belief. The Existence-plaques are 5, i.e., a II 28, 24 on transformation of Error feeding passions, 23 on Destruction of wrong belief, 22 on destruction of Mixed Belief also, 21 on destruction of Clouded Belief also. The same 5 places are also found in Partial vow, I m perfect vow and Perfect vow stages.

Commentary.

In Partial vow stage, the four Partial van preventing passions arc not bound, thus only 13 are bound. Operation of Partial-vow preventing passions is dedt:cted, so we have operation of 8, 7, 6, and 5. The Existence places are the same five as in the previous stage. In both the 6th an-! 7th stages the four Totalvaw-preventing passions arc not bound, thus only nincnrc bound. Total-vow. preventing passion ceases to op3rale, thus there is operation of 7, 6, 5 and 4. The Existence. places are the same 5 as in 4th stage. In the 8th stage also the bondage is of 9; and as Clouded Belief does not operate, operation is of 6, 5 and 4 only. The Existence places are 3 in sub-sidentialladdel i.e., ~S, & 24 on transformation of the four error-feeding passions, and of 21 in the Destructive Right Believer. 1 he same 21 are in Existence in the 8th stage of the Destructive ladder.

Commentary.

In the 9th stage all minor pll55icns cease to bind except male sex; so in its first part, there is bondage of the four Perfect vow preventing passions and of one sex, the male; in its second part, male sex ceases, and only 4 arc bound. In its third part, anger ceases, and only 3 are ,bound. In its fourth part, pride cease--, and only 2 are bound. In its fifth part deceit cease, and only one, greed is bound. Thus there are five Bondage places. Only two operation places are found; i.e., one of any of the four passions with male sex, and of only one passion without the male sex. The Existence places are the same three, ire, of ;08, H, and 21 as in the previous stage in Subsidential ladder. In the Destructive ladder the four partial vow preventil1g and the four total-vow-preventing passions, common sex inclination, female sex-inclination, and the six minor passions, male inclination, perfect-vow prevailing anger, pride, deceit are destroyed; so there are 8 Existence places of 13, 12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2 and .

Comparing this chart with that given under Verse 659, it is evident that this is merely a summary of what is stated there. Take an example; Bondage of 9 sub-classes occurs in the stages VI, and VII, then there can be only four Operation places of 7, 6, 5. and 4 and the Existence place will be 5 of 2B, 24, 23,22, and 21. In the 9th stage the Bondage places are 5, of these when there will be ,bondage of 5, Operation is of 2 only and Existence places will be 6 of- 2B, 24,21, 18, 12 and 11. When only 4 are in bondage, Operation is of I passion only and Existence will be of B i. e., 2B, 24, 21 in Subsidential, and 13, I~, II, 5 and 4 in Destructive ladder. When 3 are in Bondage, Operation is of I only, and existence is of 5 i. e., 28,24,21,4,3, and so on.

Thus, where there is Operation of ten sub-classes of Deluding Karma, there will be Bondage of 22, while 28 or 27 or 26 can be in Existence. When 9 operate, Bondage of 22 or 21, or 17 is possible and Existence may be of 28, 27, 26, 24, 23 or 22 with reference to different souls. Similarly if we take the last operation place of one, i.e., of any of the four Perfect-conduct preventing passions, there can be Bondage of 4, 3, 2, or I, while Existence can be of 28, 24, 21 in Subsidential ladder, and of 11,5,4.3,2, or I in the Destructive ladder.
