Mohanīya, Mohanīya karma, Mohniya Karma

Deluding karma

One of the 4 Ghati karma.

It is a type of karma, the rise of which is responsible for destroying the quality of bliss (which is inherent in the soul).

It has two sub-types:

1

Darśana Mohaniya

distorts the faith,

2

Cāritra Mohaniya

distorts the conduct.

Unless it is completely annihilated, the soul cannot become free from passions (kasāya) or attain the state of vītarāga; it is the main culprit in the perpetuation of the bondage of karma and extending the mundane state of the soul.
