Commentary.
Withopposite
subclasses are so called because they are in sets. mutually repugnant; the
bondage of one excludes the bondage of the other. For example, when there is
bondage of pleasurefeeling, there cannot be a bondage of painfeeling.
Sometimes one may seem to feel both pleasure and pain, but this feeling is
merely the operation and not bondage of the pleasure and painfeeling Karmas;
and even then the mixed feeling is only apparent, and not real; because
attention changes from pleasure to pain so instantaneously, that although the
feelings are really successive, they seem to be simultaneous. The operation
also of pleasure and painfeeling Karmas is successive and not simultaneous.

The maximum(duration of a Karma} divided by its maximum quiescence, is its
quiescencesection (Amdha Kangaka, showing the number of the variety of
durations with equal quiescence).
After
multiplying this by the number of divisions of quiescence, and deducting (the
product) less one, from the maximum duration, (we obtain) the minimum
(duration).
Commentary.
To
illustrate. Let the maximum duration of a Karma be 64, and the minimum duration
45 instants. The intermediate durations would be of 63 to 46 instants. Let 16
be the maximum period of quiescence. Abadha Kangaka,}or quiescencesection is
a group of durations, each of which is possessed of equal quiescence. In each group
the quiescence will be gradually deereased by a common difference. In order to
find out the Abadha Kangaka in a duration of 64
instants we should divide these
instants by 16, the maximum quiescence. The quotient 4 would be the number of
periods, each of equal quiescence. This group wil1'include Karmas of duration
varying from 64 to 61 instants each one of quiescence of 16 instants.
For
those with durations varying from 60 to 57, the quiescence would be of 15
instants. taking one, as common difference. For those from 56 to 53, the
quiescence will be of 14 instants; for those from 52 to 49, it will be of 13
instants; and for those from 48 to 45. it will be of 12 instants. Here the
numbers of divisions. of quiescence are, five,' (i, e.. of 16, 15, 14, 13 and
12. instants). The minimum quiescence here is of 12 instants. The number of
divisions is obtained by applying the following rule :
maximum quiescenceminimum
quiescence +1_1612 + 15
According
to the Gatha, the minimum duration is 64 (4X 51)  6419 = 45. We can also
find out the minimum quiescence for the minimum duration. Minimum quiescence
section begins from 48 to 45 instants. If 16 is Abadha for a Karma with
duration of 64 instants, what will be the Abadha for one with 48 instants. By
application of Rule of Three, we get 166x48/64  12 instants. These 12
instants will also be Abadha Karma of the duration of 45 instants.
As
illustrated above, We can find out quiescence sections, and divisions of any of
the Karma with different durations.

the middle of the divisions of each condition of existence. Both immediately

The duration both immediately above and below these again is numerable fold.
And so on up to irrational five sensed.
Commentary.
A unit of the number of the
divisions of duration is called Shalaka. Let 2 represent numerable fold. Of the
28 divisions in Gatha 148, Nos. 1 to 8 refer to Karmas of one sensed beings. Of
these 8, the middle divisions from 4th, the maximum duration of fine
undevelopables, to 5th, the minimum duration of fine undevelopables, form ... ... 1 Shalaka.

From
fine developable maximum to gross, deve
lopable maximum the duration =98
x 2 ... ... 196 Shalakas.
Total...
343 Shalakas.
In
onesensed beings, the maximum duration of wrongbelief is one Sagara, and the
minimum is one Sagara minus (innumerable part of a Palya minus one instant).
The divisions of duration from maximum to minimum having a common difference of
one instant (Samaya) are equal to innumerable part of a Palya.
Now
by rule of three, if innumerable parts Of a Palya are divisions of duration in
bondage of wrongbelief for 343 parts, the number of divisions for 196 parts
will be 196x/343 assuming the innumerable part of a Palyax.
This is the number of divisions
of duration from the maximum of gross developable to the maximum of fine
developables.
Then
the maximum duration of fine developables will be ;
1 Sagar {196x/343 1.}
In
the same way, 28x/343 will be the number of divisions of duration from one
instant less than the maximum of fine developable to the maximum of gross
undevelopables. Therefore the maximum duration of gross undevelopable would
bet {1 Sagara {196x/3431}24x343
Thus
we should get the durations of each of 8 divisions for one sensed beings. Also
the quiescience (Abadha) should be found in the same way.
In
the same way for durations of 4 kinds of 2sensed, as below:
The
middle is from maximum of undevelopable to
minimum of undevelopable = ... ... ... 1
Shalaka.
Then
below, from minimum of undevelopable to
minimum of developable =1 x 2= ... ... 2 Shalakas.
Then
above from maximum of undevelopable to
maximum of developable2 x 2= ... ...
4 Shall1kas.
Total= ... 7 Shalakas.
The
maximum duration of wrongbelief is 25 Sagaras and the minimum is (Palyal) % 4
times numerable.
In
the same manner the divisions for 3, 4, and 5sensed irrationals should be
found.

And leaving aside the human, subhuman and celestial ages, (all kinds of)
duration (bondage) of the remaining good and bad (Karmas) are bad.
Commentary.
Duration
of bondage is determined by intensity of passions. Passions prevent liberation;
therefore all duration bondage is bad. Celestial, human and subhuman ages are
not bad, because they afford an opportunity of subduing and destroying
passions. Sub. human beings can reach up to t he 5th stage of partial vow.
Hellish beings can attain at the most to the 4th stage of vowless right belief,
but they cannot go out of hell to any place where piety can be practised. In
this respect, they differ from celestial beings who are also in the 4th stage,
but can .move about and perform acts of piety such as worshipping Arhats,
attending upon saints, and visiting Jain temples. Beings in hell always desire
to get rid of their bodies, while those in other conditions of existence are
more or less attached to their environments. It is why the celestial hum and
subhuman ages are taken to be good.

Karmic
matter flows into the soul on account of soulvibrations, and by operation of
Karmic body subclass of bodymaking Karma; and then binds the soul, for a
definite durat on varying with the intensity of passions. The period between
the moment of bondage and the commencement. of its operation, matured, or immatured,

With regard to (mature) operation (Udaya) the quiescence (period) of the seven
(Karmas, i. e., all Except the age Karma is) 100 years when (the bondage
duration is) a crore of crore Sagaras. And for the other durations (it is) in
the same proportion.
Commentary.
In
a year there are 360 days; in a day 30 muhurtas, and 3773 pulsebeats in a
muhurta, which consists of 48 minutes. Thus in one hundred years there are 100
x 360 x 24 x 60)( 3,773:48=4,07,48,40,000 pulsebeats. The quiescence for a
bondage duration of one Sagara is 4,07,48,40,000:10,00,00,00,00,00,000 of
onepulse beat. Thus it is clear that Karmas whose bondage is of ordinary
duration begin to operate practically at once.
The
four kinds of bondage durationare maximum, nonmaximum, nonmaximum, and
\minimum. One exgerme represents the maximum, and the other, the minimum. The
spaces from the middle point to the maximum represents the nonMaximum duration
are extremely rare. Ordinarily the durations are of medium types of varying
length. Our ordinary passions are neither extremely internees or mild. The
corresponding bondage duration is also of ordinary length. The quien scene for
one /Sagara years duration is roughly 25,000 the part or exactly speaking
0,00,04,07,484 of a pulse beat. A Sagara consists of innumerable years. Thus it
is evident that if a person at the moment of birth binds a Karma of 70 or 80 years duration, it must
begin to operate after one Avali or wink i.e., practically at once.

time (Asankshepaddha, an innumerable part of an Avali or wink). (But note that)
in age (the quiescence is) not a proportionate part of the duration, as in
other Karmas).
Commentary.
The
age Karma is bound at one of the eight decliningtimes (Apakarshana Kala), see
Gatha 517 (JivaKanda) The maximum age is one crore Purva years in the case of
humans in workregion (Karmabhumi). So the longest quiescence possible cannot
be more than onethird of one crore of Purya years. The maximum celestial and
hellish ages are 33 Sagaras and of humans and subhumans of the enjoyment
regions, 3 Palyas. But the celestial and hellish being bind their next age
Karma 6 months, and the enjoyment region humans and subhumans 9 months, before
death. Therefore their quiescence cannot be more than onethird of this time.

As to premature operation (Udirna) of the seven Karmas (i. e., all except age)
the quiescence (is) one Avali, and necessarily (there) is no premature
operation .of the age (Karma) for the next incarnation (in the present
incarnation).
Commentary.
The
Avali in the Gatha is called Achalavali or fixed wink, i. e. the minimum period
of quiescence. Some matter out of the molecules having 10ng duration can be
brought to operation prematurely by diminishing their duration. Such Karmas
must have a minimum qllie3cence of one Avali before premature operation,
Udirna.

(The number of) drippings (Nisheka) of the seven Karmas (is the number of
instants in) the duration of the Karma minus its quiescence. And necessarily
the drippings (Nisheka) of the ageKarma is (the number of instants in) its
duration.
Commentary.
Dripping
is the number of molecules of particular Karma which are shed is one instant.
It should be known that Karmic molecules bound at a particular instant begin to
operate after passing the quiescence. Then those molecules are distributed over
all the instants of the duration minus Abadha. In each instant thereafter
there is a shedding of a lesser number of molecules than in the former, by a
common difference (Chaya). Their proportion and distribution has been
illustrated in Gatha No.5.

After passing the quiescence, the greatest (number of molecules) should be
assigned to the first dripping (of the first Gunah:.ini),(i.e., the greatest
number of mole clues will be head in the first instant of any dripping). Then
reduce (at each instant) by the common difference (Chaya) or(Nislekha) up to
the first dripping of the next Gunah:.ini). (See note to Gatha 5).

In the second (and other) drippings of the second (Gunahani), the common
difference (is) half of the common difference of the first (Gunahani) and
similarly in each Gunahani the common difference (Chaya) is half of that in
(the preceding one).
Commentary.
If
the unit of bondage be assumed as 6300 molecules, as in note to Gatha 5, and
the period of their shedding, after deducting Abadha be 48 instants, the number
of molecules in the first dripping of the first Gunahani will be 512 and in the
last dripping of the last Gunahani 9 as is clear from the table below:
