|GUIDLINES OF JAINISM||
Mohaniya Karma is the most destructive among the eight karmas The seven Karmas eclipse the original form of the soul. But the Mohan1ya Karma surely distorts the very nature and qualities of the soul. On account of this Karma, the Jivatma falls a victim to various kinds of mental states and propensities. This is called Samjna in the Jain terminology. Samjna means a mental state such as swooning or attachment. The present-day psychologists call these by the name natural gonads. The Jain dharma has classified them under ten heads.
Ahar Samjna : The tendency to eat and drink; and thinking about them.
