Abhyantarakaraṇa (अभ्यन्तरकरण):—[karmadharaya compound]

(-ṇam) The same as antaḥkaraṇam; and the reverse of vāhyakaraṇa. This form of the word occurs in some Mss., but the more correct form is ābhyantarakaraṇa q. v.; and the compound vāhyābhyantarakaraṇa which is of frequent occurrence in Vedānta-, Sāṅkhya- and Yoga writings, is to be analyzed therefore: vāhya-ābhyaº-kaº. E. see ābhyantarakaraṇa.
