Tattvartha Sutra: 09 Samvar - Prevention Of Karma

Published: 15.07.2017

In the last chapter we considered the concept of bondage. The worldly soul has been acquiring Karma and has been bearing its consequences since the time immemorial and still there is no end in sight. That happens because it has not learnt how to prevent the inflow of Karma and how to eradicate its bondage. This chapter shows how to do that. Since Asrav of Karma is comparable to the dirt coming in a house through its doors and windows, the obvious way to prevent Karma is to close the doors through which it comes in.
