Samayasara - by Acharya Kundakunda: Unbelievably Absurd Conclusions Resulting From The Above False Beliefs

purisitthiyāhilāsῑ ithῑkammaṃ ca purisamahilasadi.
esā āyariyaparaṃparāgadā erisῑ du sudῑ..

tamhā ṇa ko vi jῑvo abaṃbhayārῑ du tumhamuvadese.
jamhā kammaṃ ceva hi kammaṃ ahilasadi jaṃ bhaṇidaṃ..
30

jamhā ghādedi paraṃ pareṇa ghādijjade ya sā payaḍῑ.
edeṇattheṇa du kira bhaṇṇadi paraghādaṇāme tti..
31

tamhā ṇa ko vi jῑvo vagghādago atthi tumha uvadese.
jamhā kammaṃ ceva hi kammaṃ ghādedi jaṃ bhaṇidaṃ..

[The aforementioned heretics further believe—(purisitthiyā-hilāsῑ itthῑkammaṃ ca purisamahilasadi) it is a sub-species of deluding karma which produces a longing for female in the male and for male in the female; (esā āyariyaparaṃparāgadā erisῑ du sudῑ) if this is what the preceptors have, traditionally, preached/ taught through the scriptures. (Tamhā ṇa ko vi jῑvo avaṃbhayārῑ du tumhamuvadese) Then, according to the heretical view, not a single soul indulges in the sexual act (jamhā kammaṃ ceva hi kammaṃ ahilasadi jaṃ bhaṇidaṃ) since as it has been said that it is karma only that desires for karma (because the sexual impulse is nothing but one sub-species of karma desiring another one).

(Jamhā paraṃ ghādedi ya pareṇa ghādijjade sā payaḍῑ) (And, again) If it is one sub-type of karma which is the killer/kills and another sub-type which is being killed—(edeṇattheṇa du kira paraghādaṇāme tti bhaṇṇadi) this is the meaning of paraghā-tanāmakarma. (Tamhā tumha uvadese ko vi jῑvo vaghādago ṇa atthi) Then (according to this doctrine) not a single soul is guilty of killing because the act of killing is perpetrated by one type of karma. Then (according to this doctrine) not a single soul is guilty of killing (jamhā kammaṃ ceva hi kammaṃ ghādedi jaṃ bhaṇidaṃ) since as it has been said that it is karma only that kills karma [—because the act of killing is perpetrated by one type of karma] which destroys another type, as stated above.
