English:

That is of different types, duration, intensity and plenitude.

This sutra states that there are four aspects of the bondage, viz. type, duration, intensity and plenitude. Every activity leads to some Karma. Since the activities are of innumerable types, there can be innumerable types of Karma. All of them are, however, broadly classified into 8 main types and 97 (also classified as 148 or 158) categories.
