Can a Jiva in Mithyatva Gunasthanak be liberated?
No, a Jiva in Mithyatva Gunasthan cannot be liberated because it cannot
follow the path shown by Jina, since he has no faith in it.
Can a Jiva who has once gone to any higher stage from Mithyatva
Gunasthanak be liberated?
Yes, he is sure to be liberated, even if he falls back to Mithyatva
Gunasthanak. He will be liberated after innumerable lives.
How come Mithyatva Gunasthanak is first gunasthanak not a zero gunasthanak?
In Mithaytva Gunasthanak, even though there is no realization between
wrong and right, one knows things around him/her. For example, on a very
cloudy day even though we may not see the sun, we cannot say that there is
no sun, because the power of light, which penetrates the clouds, enables
us to see objects around us. In the same way the soul is able to exhibit
some power of knowledge so it cannot be called zero gunasthanak.
Can you desribe the mind of person who is In Mithyatva Gunasthanak?
In the Mithyatva Gunasthanak, one may know a cow as a cow, but can not
differentiate the soul and body as separate entity. He is also over
powered by severe passions, which do not allow him to think what is right
for the soul and gets carried away in the wrong direction.
