Description
About the Book

About the Book Kasaya-pahuda is the first pro-canonical Digambara text of early stages of Prakrta having its origin from the chapter (prabhrta) named Preya-dvesa of tenth section of the fifth pre-canon known as Jana-pravdda (Discourse on Knowledge).

It is a text on Karma theory, specially related with one of the most powerful Karma & Deluding Karma (Mohaniya Karma), though names of other Kaunas are mentioned as and where necessary. The text prominently deals with deluding Karma and four major classes of passion and their 16 sub-classes along with their synonyms, four-foldness, four-fold bondage, transition, maturation and pre-maturation and means of subsidence and destruction. These passions attract karmic particles polluting the mundane soul.

The karmic pollution leads to four-fold karmic bondage through many processes. The object of life is to debond one-self from Karmas where processes of (i) transition, (ii) attenuation, (iii) augmentation, (iv) inte-nsity, reduction or karmic leaning, (v) subsi-dence and (vi) destruction do occur. The processes of horse-ear-like destruction and that destruction approaching towards omnisciental emanation are also involved here.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
