Vaisheshika (school of philosophy)
Amūrtaguṇa (अमूर्तगुण) or simply Amūrta refers to a classification of the twenty-four guṇas (qualities) according to the Vaiśeṣikadarśanam with Praśastapādabhāṣya and the Bhāṣāpariccheda.—Guṇas are also divided into mūrtaguṇa, amūrtaguṇa and mūrtāmūrtaguṇa. These divisions are found in the Praśastapādabhāṣya and also in the Bhāṣāpariccheda. Cognition, pleasure, pain, desire, aversion, merit, demerit and sound are amūrtaguṇas i.e., these guṇas abide in unlimited things.Source: Shodhganga: A study of Nyāya-vaiśeṣika categories (vaisesika)
