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.

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
���Ͼ�֬�� ��ֻ�
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
�ã�ן� *S**thithi*,
duration. The shedding off it is Continuous process, after it once
begins.

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,

In the second (and other subsequent) Nishekas of the second (Gunahani),
(the common) difference of decrease will be half of what it was in the

Let us take sixty-three.-hundred. forty-eight. eight. Six, sixteen and
sixty-four to be (respectively) the Dravya and the others (six
particulars mentioned just above).

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.

Here we have
omitted to consider the period of quiescence.

Looking to conditions in the 48th instant, the number of molecules bound
in the 47th, the 48th instant, will all 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

With reference to Wrong-Belief Karma, the last (viz, Annyonyabhast rashi)
is the product of (the number of Varga�Shalaka, 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 (���ϭ���ꭵ�ֳ��ß�
����)
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= 14 is called Nana�-Gunahani.

Nishekaham is equal to double of Gunahani-Ayama (i. e., number of

we get the common difference.

Commentary.

Taking
the example given above, if 11 are instants of one Gunahani, then 16
will be the Nishekahara. If 512 be the molecules of the first Nisheka of

The total number of molecules being divided by Annyony bhasta-rashi
minus one, is the number of molecules in the last (6th) Gunahani (the
number in the other Gunahanis will be double of those next to it (till
we reach) the molecules constituting the first Gunahani.

Commentary.

Annyonyabhyasta Rashi is 2 multiplied as many times as there are
Gunahanis. In the example given above there are 6 Nana-Gun�ahanis (Verse
928); Annyonyabhyasta Rashi=2x2x2x2X2X2 =64.

The
number of molecules of the 6th or last Gunahani � 6300 / (64- 1) = 100.

To find the common difference, divide the respective molecules (of each
Gunaha1li) by the product (of instants of the Gunahani, and Nishekahara
minus half 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
application has already been stated to be

S =n/2 (a+1)
=n/2 (2 an-1 d).

To
find out d. the common difference it is necessary that the first term be
given. The sum and the number of term 5 are not sufficient data for
finding out the difference.

Subtract the sum of the difference (between the first and the succeeding
terms (Pmchayadhana) from the respec�tive matter or a (Prachayadhana)
from the respective matter of a Gunahani, divide the result by (instants
of) the Gunahani, (and you get) the number of the last (Nisheka of that
Gunahani).

Commentary.

Prachayadhana or Uttardhana of a Gunahani is obtained by
multiplying the instants of the Gunahani by the common difference, and
by 1/2 of
the instants of the Gunahani mines one. The sum of the difference
between the first and the succeeding terms, Prachaya�-Ahaha, for the
first Gunahani of 3200 is

3 x 32 x1/2 of
(8-1) =8 x 32 x7/3 =8 x 112 = 895.

The
last Nisheka of the Gunahani of 3200 molecules will recording to verse
931 will be (3200-896): 8 2304/8=288. The other Nishekas can be had by
adding 52 to each successive Nisheka. For the other 5 Gunahanis. the
Prachaya. dhana as well as the Chaya or common difference for each
Gunahani will also be hall of its former.

The
number of molecules in el1ch of the 8 instants of each of the 6
Gunahanis. which are shed off in 48 instants are shown in tabular form
annexure A. This is an expanded statement of the Chart given under Verse
260. p. 150, Karma Karma. Vol. VI. S.B.J. Series.

The
above example illustrates the manner in which the molecules bound at an
instant are distributed in all the instants of duration which is almost
negligible, less the quiescent period, with reference to the seven
Karmas. It shows that in the first instant, the largest number of
molecules will be shed and at the last instant the least in number. In
the above example. 5th will be shed in the first instant and 9 in the
last instant. The decrease is gradual as shown in the chart.

In case of bondage of maximum duration, with the maximum quiescence, the
maximum (distribution and shedding of molecules) is calculated from the
very (first) moment. They go on decreasing in subsequent instants of
duration of bondage.

Commentary.

All
molecules bound at a particular instant, are distributed in all the
instants of its duration minus the quiescence, according to the
proportion �laid� down in Verse 931. The first Nisheka or shedding group
will have the maximum number of molecules, and the last one the minimum.
The maximum quiescence of the last Nisheka will be the total duration
minus one instant. VI h file that of others will be successively
decreasing by one instant. The lest Nisheka really has maximum duration
and. maximum quiescence.

quiescence. Each successive Nisheka will have 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 others will be

During the direct (distribution of Nisheka, as regards duration), (Nishekas
equal to) one Samaya Prabaddha fall off at every instant. Really one
Samaya Prabaddha is bound and comes into 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.

All (.the Karmic molecules) in existence at any ins�tant, will be
lecithin 1.5 of the instants of Gnnahani, multiplied by one Samaya
Prbaddha. It will be the sum of the existing molecules of all duration�s
as shown in the triangular chart. (Annexure A).

Commentary.

The triangular chart will show that in the 48th instant, the molecule
bound at bat very instant are 6300 in existence; and �Of the molecules
bound m the 4 7th instant, 5788 are in existence, 512 �having shed Off,

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.

In (Annexure A) the total of the subsequent Guna�hani is equal to the
balance of its total deducted from the preceding one. The total of the
first line (vertical or horizontal) is one 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 glance.

The
proportionate distribution of 6800 molecules in the 6 Guna�hanis, is as
follows :�

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.

Partial-vows, Total-vows, and) ascending (the Subsidential or
Destructive) ladders; (but) in other (Souls), the places of duration are

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-obscur�ing 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 determin�ing 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,

by multiplying the places already obtained for the third time by)

Commentary.

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 Karma8, and
the third time for Deluding Karma.

The instants of Gunahani in thought-activities occasioning
duration-bondage are (equal to those of ) the Gunahani of the duration
(as said before); but their Nana-Guna�hani are 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 Nana�guna-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.

# Commentary

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.

Six

(1)
Infinite part increase .. 48+4^{8/8}:=48+6=54.

Numerable.. � � =72+7 2/2=7233 108.

(6)
Infinite fold = 1296+1296x8= 1296+10368= 11664.

Thus
if all the 6 kinds of increase take effect once on 48, it would amount

961-962. The eight Karmas have (thought activities binding durations as
said above). The Age-Karma has, however, (variations) in an (Anukrishti)
series, which increase onwards by the common difference till (the last)
division of the minimum duration. (Each of the) divisions thereafter in
each line upto the maximum in (the last line) goes on increasing
gradual1y innu�merable-fold (of its preceding one).

Passionate thought-activity-places bringing about (degree 00 fruition in
Karmas (Anubhag-bandha-Adhyavasaya Sthan) are innumerable times the
Universe (space-units). They are the least in thought-activities which
cause bondage of mini�mum duration (Yet their number is so very large as
would be obtained by multiplying thought causing bondage of minimum
duration with innumerable times the universe space units).

Thereafter, the number gradually increases by a com�mon difference.
(This common difference would be represented by) the quotient (of the
total fruition matter) being divided by innumerable times the
space-units of the universe. This increase goes all) till the maximum
(division) of be lowest (guna-hani). (For other guna-hanis, the common
difference will be double of that in the former ones). This is the rule,
(till the maximum gunahani).

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.

The End.
