JIVA'S CONDITION DUE TO RISE OF GOTRA-KARMA (STATUS-DETERMINING KARMA)
Due to rise of Gotra-Karma, birth in high or low caste is caused; there one gets high or low status. Owing to rise of Moha, the soul becomes happy and miserable.
In this way, the state of Jiva is found due to the instrumentality of Aghati-karmas.
In this way, in this eternal world, the states of soul are caused due to rise of Ghati and Aghati karmas.
"Oh Bhavya Jiva! (Oh Capable Soul !) you should think deeply in your inner heart and see whether it is so only or not. On contemplation it would appear to be so only. If it is so then do accept that you are being afflicted since eternity by transmigration form of disease. You should make efforts to destroy it. Such meditation will bring true happiness to you".
Thus ends the 2nd Chapter describing 'the mundane state' of existence of Jivas in this Moksha Marg Prakashak named Shastra.
