English:

Chakshu, Achakshu, Avadhi, Kaivalya, Nidrā, Nidrā-nidrā, Prachalā, Prachala-prachalā and Styāngrddhi are the nine categories of Darshanāvaraniya Karma.

Darshan is mainly of four types, viz. Chakshudarshan meaning visual perception, Achakshudarshan meaning non-visual perception, Avadhidarshan meaning clairvoyant perception and Kevaldarshan meaning omni-perception. The Karmas that obscure them are respectively termed as Chakshu­darshanāvaraniya, Achakshudarshanāvaraniya, Avadhi-darshanāvaraniya and Kevatdarshanāvaraniya. Moreover, sleeping state also causes the loss of perception. Jainism lays five types of sleep that obscures perception. They are termed as Nidrā, Nidrā-nidrā, Prachalā, Prachalā-prachalā and Styāngrht. The phenomenon, in which one indulges in dozing, is called Nidrā Darshanāvaran; that, in which one goes to sound sleep, is called Nidrānidra Darshanāvaran; that, in which one drowses, is called Prachalā Darshanāvaran; that, in which one indulges in sleep-walking, is called Prachalā-prachalā Darshanāvaran; and that, in which one can perform during the sleep what he had conceived of in waking state, is called Styāngrhi Darshanāvaran.
