Life-span-determining karma

It is a type of karma which is responsible for the life-span of the soul in a particular realm.

It has four sub-types:

1

Devāyusya

life-span-determining in the realm of gods

2

Manusyāyusya

life-span-determining in the realm of humans

3

Tiryañcāyusya

life-span-determining in the realm of sub-humans

4

Nārakāyusya

life-span-determining in the realm of infernals

The first two sub-types are auspicious, the last two are inauspicious. Only a soul in the second sub-type (i.e., human-life-span) can attain emancipation. Unless the āyusya karma is completely annihilated, the soul cannot attain emancipation.
