116. If matter, in the form of karmas, is not of its own accord bound with the Self, nor of itself evolves into modes of karma, then it becomes immutable.

117. If the primary karmic molecules do not transform themselves into various karmic modes (associated with jiva) then it will lead to the non-existence of samsara as in the case of the Sankhya system.

118. If you maintain that it is the Self that transforms the primary karmic molecules into various karmic modes, then how is it possible for the Self who is a Chetana entity to cause transformation in a thing which is by nature non-transformable.

119. Then it follows that matter of its own accord transform itself into various modes of karmas. Hence it is false to maintain the jiva causes this transformation into karmic modes.

120. The primary karmic molecules which undergo transformation as various karmic modes are in reality material in nature. Know ye, then that the karmic modifications such as jnanavaraniya, knowledge-obscuring karmas, etc. are also of similar nature.
