- faith deluding (darśana-mohanīya),
- conduct deluding (cāritra-mohanīya).
How many sub types of faith deluding karmas are there? The three sub types of faith deluding karmas are: wrong belief (mithyātva), mixed wrong and right belief (samyaktva) and right belief slightly clouded by wrong belief (samyaktva-mithyātva). How many sub types of conduct deluding karmas are there? These karmas are mainly of two types namely caused by passions (kaṣāya) and those caused by quasi passions (nokaṣāya or akaṣāya).
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.
