STATES OF JIVA CAUSED DUE TO THE DISEASE OF KARMIC BONDAGE
Now, the states of Jiva caused by instrumentality of disease of karmic bondage are being described:
Inherently the nature of this Jiva is Chaitanya (sentience); it possesses the power of cognizing general and specific nature of all existing substances. Chaitanya is the name of (soul's) that attribute in which the real nature of substances is reflected as they are. Cognition of general (common) nature (of substances) is called perception (Darshan) and cognition of specific (uncommon) nature (of substances) is called knowledge (Jnan). Due to such nature the soul always possesses the power of perceiving and knowing all substances directly and simultaneously with all their attributes and modifications of the past, present and future without any help or means; but from eternity, knowledge-obscuring and perception-obscuring Karmas are found bonded with Jiva, due to its Nimitta the manifestation of this power does not take place. Owing to Kshayopashama (destruction-cum-subsidence) of these Karmas somewhat (a little) manifestation of Mati-Jnan (sensory knowledge) and Shruta-Jnan (scriptural knowledge) is found and very rarely Avadhi-Jnan (clairvoyance) is also found; Achakshu-Darshan' (non-occular perception) is found and rarely Chakshu-Darshan (occular perception) and Avadhi-Darshan (clairvoyant perception) are also found.
Now, the tendency of these is explained below:
