Karma - The Mechanism: Tattvarthasutra 6.07

Published: 01.08.2014

Adhikaranam jivajivah (7)

How karma manifests depends on whether the impulse for that activity

  • originated within our consciousness (jiva) or
  • was presented to us by our environment (by the ajiva-elements outside our consciousness). (7)

All action that originates in our consciousness, in our emotions and in our psyche confronts us with entirely different karmic effects than activities that are induced by our (material) environment (the ajiva-elements[11]). The next two sutras describe these differences.
