General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 8: Bondage of karmas
Cāritramohanīya (चारित्रमोहनीय) refers to “conduct deluding (karmas)” and represents one of the two main classifications of Mohanīya, or “deluding (karmas)”, which represents one of the eight types of Prakṛti-bandha (species bondage): one of the four kinds of bondage (bandha) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra chapter 8. What is meant by conduct deluding karma (cāritra-mohanīya)? The karmas rise of which obstruct the right conduct nature of the soul are called conduct deluding karmas.
The two types of conduct deluding karmas (cāritra-mohanīya) are:
- caused by passions (kaṣāya),
- caused by quasi passions (nokaṣāya or akaṣāya).
Kaṣāya (conduct deluding karmas caused by passions) is of sixteen sub types namely:
- four virulent levels (anantānubaṃdhi) of the four passions,
- four mild levels (apratyākhāna) of the four passions,
- four moderate levels (pratyākhāna) of the four passions,
- four subtle levels (saṃjvalana or sañjvalana) of the four passions.
Nokaṣāya or Akaṣāya (conduct deluding karmas caused by quasi passions) is of nine types namely:
- jest (hāsya)
- liking for certain objects (rati)
- dislike for certain objects (arati)
- grief or sorrow (śoka)
- fear (bhaya)
- disgust (jugupsā)
- hankering after women (strīveda)
- hankering after men (puṃveda)
- hankering after neutral gender (napuṃsakaveda)
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
