English:
They are everlasting immutable and formless. Pudgals have forms.

The above-mentioned five substances are eternal and constant. It means that they are indestructible and exist forever. The science now admits that no original substance can perish. Jainism said it since the prehistoric times. Constancy denotes that there is no increase or decrease in the number. All of them, except Pudgal, are formless and shapeless; as such they are intangible and imperceptible. Pudgal is perceptible in aggregate, but imperceptible in subtle form. Moreover, while other substances are formless and devoid of material attributes,

Pudgal has form and is imbibed with the attributes of touch, taste, odor and color.
