Avivāda (अविवाद) refers to “absence of dispute”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, as Gaganagañja said to Ratnapāṇi: “Son of good family, the thirty-two dharmas are included in sixty-four dharmas. What are those sixty-four? [...] (13) harmlessness is included in love and having faith in the maturation of action; (14) contentment with one’s own possessions is included in little desire and knowing satisfaction; (15) self-control is included in no agitation and no dispute (avivāda); (16) calmness is included in renounce and eliminating the concept of mine; [...]’”.
