Avyāpi (अव्यापि, “non pervasive”).—That which is not pervasive i.e., the thing which never remains everywhere, is called avyāpi in Sāṃkhya. A cause always pevades its effect. As avyakta—the unmanifest has no cause, so it is pervasive; but all the vyaktas (manifests) having their respective causes are avyāpi.
