01.07 & 01.08

English:

Truth can be judged by taking into consideration specification, ownership, means, instrumental factors, duration, types, existence, numbers, location, contact, time, distance, modes and quantities.

 

These sutras specify 14 factors, which are helpful in making out various aspects of the subject under reference. They are like windows through which one can get a clear idea of the subject. Of these 14, the following factors are more significant.

  1. Specification: This relates to the nature of the object. For instance, if we are considering the case of an apple, it can be said that the apple is red, yellow or green; it has a sweet taste; it is nourishing etc.
  2. Ownership: For instance, the apple garden is owned by so and so.
  3. Duration: This relates to the period during which it is available. For instance, it can be said that apples are available all the year round.
  4. Type; For instance, it can be said that there are many kinds of apples.
  5. Location: For instance, apples are available in all temperate zones.
  6. Time: For instance, apples remain edible for a couple of weeks after ripening.
