Samayasara - by Acharya Kundakunda: Inspite Of Continuous Modification/Change, The Soul Never Loses Its Soulhood, that Is, Never Becomes Another Substance

jaha sippio du kammaṃ kuvvadi ṇa ya so du tammao hodi.
taha jῑvo vi ya kammaṃ kuvvadi ṇa ya tammao hodi..
42

jaha sippiu karaṇehiṃ kuvvadi ṇa ya so du tammao hodi.
taha jῑvo karaṇehiṃ kuvvadi ṇa ya tammao hodi..
43

jaha sippiu karaṇāṇi ya giṇhadi ṇa ya so du tammao hodi.
taha jῑvo karaṇāṇi ya giṇhadi ṇa ya tammao hodi..
44

jaha sippiu kammaphalaṃ bhuṃjadi ṇa ya so du tammao hodi.
taha jῑvo kammaphalaṃ bhuṃjadi ṇa ya tammao hodi..

(Jaha sippio du) Just as an artisan (such as goldsmith) (kammaṃ kuvvadi) does his work [and produces earrings etc.], (so du tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one (identical) with them (products of his work), (taha jῑvo vi ya) so also the soul (kammaṃ kuvvadi) produces various species (knowledge-obscuring etc.) of karma (tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with them, i.e., karma.

(Jaha sippiu) Just as an artisan (such as a goldsmith) (karaṇehim kuvvadi) works with his tools and implements such as hammer [and produces earrings etc.], (so du tammao ṇa ya hodi) but he does not become one with them (his tools etc.), (taha jῑvo viya) so also the soul, (kammaṃ kuvvadi) acting with the instrumentality of [threefold-mental, vocal and physical activities], [and produces various species of karma], (tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with the activities.

(Jaha sippiu) Just as an artisan (such as a goldsmith), (karaṇāṇi ya giṇhadi) handles his tools and implement while working with them, (so du tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with them (the tools), (taha jῑvo viya) so also the soul (karaṇāṇi ya giṇhadi) handles the organs of action (mind, voice-box, and muscles), (tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with them.

(Jaha sippiu) Just as an artisan (such as a goldsmith), (kammaphalaṃ bhuṃjadi) enjoys the fruits of his work (getting payment for his labour), (so du tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with the fruit (payment), (taha jῑvo vi ya) so also the soul (kammaphalam bhuṃjadi) enjoys the fruits of the karma [produced by it in the form of worldly happiness or miseries], (tammao ṇa ya hodi) but does not become one with these fruits.
