08.14

English:

Obstructing Karma is of five categories relating to charity etc.

Antarāy Karma is of five categories. One, that causes obstruction in extending charity, is called Dānāntarāy; that, which causes obstruction in gaining something, is called Lābhāntarāy; that, which causes obstruction in availing of the consumable articles, is called Bhogāntarāy; that, which causes obstruction in availing of the durable ones, is called Upabhogāntarāy; and that, which causes obstruction in exercising vigor, is called Viryāntarāy.

Here ends the description of the types of Karma. The next two topics pertain to the duration and intensify of bondage resulting from defilement. The duration denotes how long a particular Karma would be associated with a soul and intensity denotes the strength of bondage.
