Avyāpyavṛtti (अव्याप्यवृत्ति, “non-pervasive”) or Avyāpyavṛttiguṇa refers to a classification of the twenty-four guṇas (qualities) according to the Tarkasaṃgraha and the Nyāyasiddhāntamuktāvalī.—Another division of guṇa is found in the form of vyāpyavṛtti-guṇa (pervasive quality) and avyāpyavṛtti-guṇa (non-pervasive quality). A thing which exists in its substratum together with its absolute non-existence is called nonpervasive (vyāpyavṛtti). The special qualities of ether and self are non-pervasive. Similarly conjunction etc. is also non-pervading qualities. Ether, the special quality of sound is non-pervading (avyāpyavṛtti), since when it is produced within the limits of a particular part, it is absent within the limits of other parts. Similarly knowledge etc. is produced in the omnipresent self within the limits of the body etc. and are absent within the limits of a jar etc. Conjunction is also a non-pervading quality (avyāpyavṛtti-guṇa) as there is conjunction with a particular part while there is absence of it in other parts of a substance.
