Saṃjvalana (संज्वलन) or Sañjvalana refers to “perfect-conduct-preventing passions” and represents the “four subtle levels” of the four passions (e.g., krodha, ‘anger’; māna, ‘pride’; māyā, ‘deceit’; lobha, ‘greed’) and forms one of the four main divisions of the Kaṣāya (“passions”) classification of of  Cāritramohanīya “conduct deluding (karmas)” according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra chapter 8. Cāritramohanīya refers to 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). What is the nature of the subtle (saṃjvalana) anger-pride-deceit-greed karmas? The rise of these karmas does not let the soul develop the disposition to observe perfect conduct (yathākhyāta).

What is the state of the soul due to subtle anger (saṃjvalana-krodha)? The anger at this level is like the line drawn in water and is the cause of the heavenly realm. What is the state of the soul due to subtle pride (saṃjvalana-māna)? The pride at this level is like the branch of the creeper which bends easily and is the cause of the heavenly realm. What is the state of the soul due to subtle deceit (saṃjvalana-māyā)? The deceit at this level is like the hair of a cow or the bent shape of a pen and is the cause of the heavenly realm. What is the state of the soul due to subtle greed (saṃjvalana-lobha)? The greed at this level is like the colour of turmeric and is the cause of the heavenly realm.

context information

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.
