rise of Nama-Karma
(physique-making Karma) body is produced. It is somewhat instrumental cause of happiness and misery similar to Dravya-Karma.
Therefore, the body is called Nokarma.
Here the word 'No' is to be known as denoting lesser measure. The body is a mass of matter-particles (atoms) and Dravya Indriyas
(sense organs), Dravya-Mana
(material mind), respiration and vocal organs all these are also the parts of body; therefore, these also are to be known as mass of matter-particles (atoms).
In this way, Jiva
and body is found bonded occupying same spacepoints (Eka-Kshetraavagaha*
form of bondage). The relation of body remains with Jiva from the moment of birth till the duration of Ayu
and at the end of (the period of) Ayu-karma,
death takes place, then the relation with that body comes to an end; body and soul get separated and either in the same very moment or in second, third, fourth moment (Samaya), Jiva
acquires new body owing to the Nimitta
of rise of karmas; there also similar relation continues upto the end of one's Ayu
) and again death occurs, then relation ends with that body. Like this, leaving of former body and acquiring new body continues successively.
Further, this soul, although possesses innumerable space-points (Pradeshas)
but by virtue of the quality of contraction and expansion it remains equal to the extent of the size of the body occupied; however, the specific point is this that at the time of Samudghat
(emanation of soul's space-points) the Pradeshas
of soul emanate even outside the body and thereafter (on end of emanation period) remain equal in size of the last body left (before emanation).
Further, the functioning of knowing activity takes place to this Jiva
through the instrumentality of Dravya-Indriya
which are the parts (organs) of the body. And according to the condition of the body, Jiva
experiences happiness and sorrow owing to the rise of Mohakarma.
And sometimes body functions as per the will of Jiva
, sometimes Jiva acts as per the condition of the body; sometimes Jiva
acts in a different way according to its will and body (mass of matter-particles) functions in a different way.
Thus, the tendency of Nokarma is
to be understood.
*'Eka' means one or same, 'Kshetra' means region, 'Avagah' means to occupy or occupying.
