OBJECTIVES : OBJECTIVES What are main attributes of soul? What are main attributes of a body? Is there a relationship? Are we discriminatory for race, color? Why people react different when they get hurt? Who gets hurt? A body or soul? Does pain producing mechanism always produce pain? Slide 2: Infinite knowledge Infinite perception Eternal happiness Perfect conduct Immortality Formlessness No Status (Neither heavy or light) Infinite energy Karma : Karma Karma is a matter (Pudgal) and hence it possesses all characteristics of matter No consciousness / knowledge Very fine particles Can not be seen/feel/verified Entire Universe is filled with Karma Particles Slide 5: Karma theory The “theory of inevitable consequences of one's actions Involves elements of freedom of will of the individual, accountability for one's deeds (Karma) as opposed to the inert and passive nature of other factors like time, nature and others Karma doctrine provides satisfactory explanation for the otherwise inexplicable divergence in existence Karma lays emphasis not so much on punishment or retribution but on the continuous efforts for moral regeneration and upliftment of the beings and these, result in a better social order-a utopia. Slide 6: The results of Karma at the time of maturity, is decided by the severity of our passions at the time of our activities. Mental states or transformations--Leshyä. Activity (yoga) of mind, speech and body is the determinant condition of type-bondage (Prakruti-Bandha) and quantity-bondage (Pradesha Bandha) Passion (Kashäya) is the determinant condition of intensity-bondage (Anubhäga-Bandha) and duration-bondage (Sthiti Bandha) Slide 7: Asrava - Influx of Karma Mithyätva Wrong belief, Ignorance Avirati Vowlessness, Lack of self restraint Pramäda Carelessness, Unawareness or Unmindfulness Kashäya Passions (anger, ego, deceit, and greed) Yoga Activities of mind, speech, and body Slide 8: Bandh - Bondage of Karma Prakruti Bandh Nature of Karma (Eight Categories) Sthiti Bandh Duration of Karma Anubhäga Bandh or Rasa Bandh Intensity of Karma Pradesha Bandh Quantity of Karma Various Classification of Karma : Various Classification of Karma Jainism has divided Karma into a number of groups in order to bring out their important features to enable a clearer understanding of this difficult but important subject Ghäti Karma and Aghäti Karma. Punya (Shubha) Karma and Päp (Ashubha) Karma Dravya Karma and Bhäva Karma Iryäpathic Karma and Sämparäyika Karma Slide 10: Punya and Päp - Defination All acquired karma are divided into two major groups: Päp - Evil acts with the feeling of violence and revenge Produces unhappy and miserable enviornmets like illness, poverty, selfish family, discomforts etc. Punya - Meritorious deeds with feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment Produces happy or comfortable enviornment like healthy body, spiritual family, comforts, luxary etc. Provides further opportunity for emancipation of the soul from Karma through prevention (Samvar) and separation (Nirjarä) All Karma bondage must involve passion (Kashäya) hence Punya (Shubha) karma also imply Räga (attachment) which may be of noble type (Prashasta or praise worthy). All Ghati Karma are Päp karma Only Aghati Karma are classified either Punya or Päp Slide 11: Punya and Päp - Understanding From spiritual point of view All Karma Bondage hinders or defiles the natural qualities of the soul One can not attain liberation when any kamra are attached However in the initial stage of spiritual progress, one needs condusive enviornment which is provided by Punya karma Hence on the path of spiritual progrss First migrate our actions from sinful activities to meritorious activities with the feeling of satisfaction, accomplishment, reward and fame. Then continue to do meritorious activites without any expectation of accomplishment, fame, or reward (actionless action). This way no Punya karma will attach to the soul (Karta_bhav is removed) Slide 12: Prakruti Bandh (Types of Karma) Ghäti Karma (Four) Obscures soul's natural quality Aghäti Karma (Four) Obscures soul's nonphysical quality by providing physical body and related circumstances Slide 13: Ghäti Karma Jnänävaraniya Obscures soul's faculty of knowledge Darshanävaraniya Obscures soul's faculty of intuitive vision Mohaniya Obscures soul's natural state of non-attachment Antaräya Obscures soul's infinite power Slide 14: Aghäti Karma Vedaniya Obscures soul's infinite spiritual happiness not dependent on body, senses, and other external objects Nama Obscures soul's nonphysical nature Gotra Obscures soul's quality of status Äyu Obscures soul's immortality Slide 15: Dravya Präna Physical Life Force Five senses Respiration Life Span Dependency on Pudagal To protect this is Dravya Ahimsa Bhäva Präna Spiritual Life Force Knowledge, Bliss Energy, Perception Independent To protect this is Bhava Ahimsa Slide 16: Defilement of Bliss quality of soul –Root cause of all Karma Which is that Karma? Slide 17: Mohaniya Karma (Deluding Karma) Mohayati Yat Tad Mohinyam Faith Deluding Karma Conduct Deluding Karma Slide 18: Faith Deluding Karma Darshan Mohaniya Karma False Faith Deluding Karma Mithyätva Mohaniya Karma Mixed Deluding Karma Mishra Mohaniya Right Faith Deluding Karma Samyaktva Mohaniya Slide 19: Absolutist or fanatic false faith Abhigrähika Mithyätva Perverse or prejudicial faith Abhiniveshika Mithyätva Skepticism Sämshayik Mithyätva Egalitarian - faith in false Dharma Anabhigrahika Mithyätva Agnostic, total ignorance Anäbhogika Mithyätva Slide 20: Conduct Deluding (Chäritra Mohaniya) Karma are those which obscure or obstruct Right conduct. 25 types Slide 21: Subsidiary Kashäyas Laughing Häsya Improper liking Rati Improper dislike Arati Sorrow Shoka Fear Bhaya Disgust Jugupsä Sensuous craving Veda How do we relate this to Anarth Danada Vrata? Slide 22: Five Atichär or Transgressions of Anartha-danda Vrata Indulging in indecent language, Not abstaining from laughter mixed with disrespect or disgust or coarse language; Making such bodily actions and gestures as laughing; provoking laughter Indulging and engaging in meaningless talk; gossiping due to self conceit or vanity Manufacturing and keeping weapons and devices that cause violence Hoarding things relating to worldly and sensory enjoyment Slide 23: Nama Karma Most Comprehensive of all Karma Gotra Karma Not simply a birth environment but rather that environment is more or less conducive to the pursuit of the spiritual life. Vedaniya Karma Feeling Pertaining producing experiences of happiness and unhappiness. Ayu Karma Determines the duration of the coming existence Significance of Aghäti Karma : Significance of Aghäti Karma To foster socially desirable by placing all human actions within a context of understandable and inevitable consequences Not simply a birth environment but rather that environment is more or less conducive to the pursuit of the spiritual life. Slide 25: Dravya Karma and Bhäva Karma The Karma Pudgal (matter) attached to the soul are the Dravya Karma The soul in the form of passions (Kashäya) and Yoga are the Bhäva Karma. It leads to bondage of Dravya karma. Dravya Karma being part of matters are material in character. The Bhäva Karma being Kashäya and activities (attributes) of the soul are spiritual in character. The Dravya karma are the cover (Ävaran) of the soul. The Bhäva Karma is the defect or impure (ashuddha) state of the soul. Slide 26: Dravya Karma and Bhäva Karma The Dravya karma is a Nimitta to cause vibration (Kashäya and yoga) in the soul which leads further bondage of Dravya karma. The Bhäva Karma (soul with passions and yoga) is a Nimitta to attract Dravya Karma (Karma Pudgal) and bind them to the soul. The Dravya and Bhäva Karma are mutually related as each other's counterpart's of cause and effect. The relationship is classified as Nimitta-naimitik relationship. This chain reaction continues as a vicious circle until it is broken by positive and deliberate efforts called Samvar (Stoppage) and Nirjarä (Separation). Slide 27: Example Persons X and Y are involved in a car accident Person X was at fault Person Y got hurt Person Z witnessed the accident What are the possible reflections of persons X, Y, and Z. Slide 28: Possible Reflections Reflection of person X 1. It was Y's bad karma that he got hurt. I was just the Nimitta 2. It was predestined for Y to get hurt 3. I was not driving carefully. Due to my negligence Y got hurt Slide 29: Possible Reflections Reflection of person Y 1. It was my bad karma that I got hurt. Person X was just Nimitta 2. It was predestined for me to get hurt 3. It was X's fault. If he would have been careful I would not get hurt Slide 30: Possible Reflections Reflection of person X 1. It was Y's bad karma that he got hurt. I was just the Nimitta 2. It was predestined for Y to get hurt 3. I was not driving carefully. Due to my negligence Y got hurt Reflection of person Y 1. It was my bad karma that I got hurt. Person X was just Nimitta 2. It was predestined for me to get hurt 3. It was X's fault. If he would have been careful I would not get hurt Reflection of person Z 1. Y got hurt because of his bad karma. Let him complete the suffering so that his karma get exhausted 2. It was predestined for Y to get hurt 3. Y got hurt and I should try my best to help him immediately Slide 31: Ignorant Person's Reflection Reflects only One Cause which benefits him X It was Y's bad Karma or his Predestination (Niyati) that he got hurt Y It was X's Negligence (Freewill) that I got hurt Z It was Y's bad Karma or his Predestination that he got hurt. Let him complete his suffering so he does not have to suffer in future Slide 32: Spiritual Person's Reflection Reflects on one cause which enhances his spirituality or reduces his kashays such as anger, greed, ego, lust etc. X It was my negligence Y It was my bad Karma or my Predestination Z My intrinsic nature is Compassion. I need to help Y immediately Slide 33: Karma and Compassion Our ignorance or intention behind our actions of body, mind, and speech bind us with Karma. During an ignorance state a person is controlled by surroundings (Nimitta). Hence on the path of spiritual progress the person should be surrounded by proper environment Religious study and Svadhyaya Charity work Temple going, Tirth Yatra Good friends Scholar visitation etc.. Slide 34: Karma and Compassion..... As spiritual progress occurs, the effect of Nimitta reduces, and the power of Upadan increases For a totally realized person (Kevali) Nimitta has no effect. Karma philosophy applies to ourselves, Compassion applies to all
