109. The general karmic conditions, pratyayas, are primarily four in number. They are said to be the immediate agents bringing about karmic bondage. These must be understood to be wrong belief, non discipline, gross emotions, and yoga or psycho-physical structure, conditioning the activity of thought, word, and deed.

110. Of these pratayas, thirteen further subdivisions of secondary conditions (based upon asravas) are mentioned, which are the various gunasthanas (stages of spiritual development) beginning from mithyadrishti or wrong believer, and ending with sayogi kevali (the perfect being still with yoga or psycho physical structure) conditioning the activity of thought, word, and deed.
