This book is basically a commentary on the topic of the actions [causes], physical and mental, enjoined and prohibited, those bring about one association with the body; and when this association with the body takes place, pleasure and pain [products] follow inevitably. Thence come likes and dislikes and from them actions follow again, results of which are merits and demerits that appertain to an ignorant man.These are further followed, similarly, by the relations with the body. This is called as transmigration and this transmigration goes on and through the concept of time, space and quality on a revolving wheel.
