02.10-14

English:

Souls are divided in two categories of worldly souls and liberated ones. The worldly souls can be with or without minds. The worldly souls can also be divided in two categories of mobile and immobile. Earthly beings, aquatic beings and plant life belong to the immobile category. Lustrous, gaseous and two or more sensed beings belong to the mobile category.

These sutras give the classification of souls by their state, mental capability and mobility. All the souls can be divided in two broad categories of those belonging to the worldly state and the liberated state. The worldly souls are sub-divided in two sub-categories of those having mind and those not having mind. They can also be sub-divided as mobile and immobile beings. The former are termed as Tras and the latter as Sthāvar. Earthly beings, aquatic beings and plant life are immobile and are therefore termed as Sthāvar, other living beings are mobile and are termed as Tras. It should be noted that the lustrous and gaseous beings, which are usually considered as Sthāvar, are here termed as Tras on the ground that they happen to move.
