Aviveki (अविवेकि, “non-discriminated”).—Viveka means “difference” and viveki means “the state of being different” or “discriminated”. That which is non-discriminated is called aviveki. Avivekittva is there in the vyakta and avyakta in respect of the three guṇas. Vācaspati says, anything that possesses happiness (sukha), sorrow (duḥkha) and bewilderment (moha) is called aviveki. Since prakṛti (both in its akāryāvasthā and kāryāvasthā) is of the nature of happiness (sukha), sorrow (duḥkha) and bewilderment (moha), so prakṛti is aviveki.
