Navakaarvali Rosary

Nine fundamental principles of Jainism.  A precise knowledge about these is essential for the liberation of the
 soul which is in bondage. These nne categories are:
 · Jiva (souls)
 · Ajiva (non-living substances).  In this group are dharma (motion), adharma (rest), akasa (space), kala (time), and pudgala (matter- particles).
 · Asrava (influx of karma in the form of matter-particles which stick to the soul spaces and act as fetters)
·  Bandha (bondage)
 · Punya (virtue)
 · Paapa (vice)
 · Samvara (arresting karma influx)
 · Nirjara (exhausting accumulated karma)
 · Moksa (liberation, which takes place when the soul is liberated, perfected and enlightened because of the total release from the clutches of matter-particles)
 These nine can be reduced to two major categories,  jiva and ajiva, which are the very basic of basic principles. Others simply help to understand the process of karma bondage until liberation.
