Carvaṇā (चर्वणा):—“That carvaṇā (rumination) is not born previously of any other means of valid knowledge so that it could become memory, nor is it now born of any other means, because the means of knowledge such as peception and the like do not operate in the lokottara domain. It is not without any evidence, by itself, because it is proved by the slef-evident knowledge. Carvaṇā is indeed of the nature of knowledge, becuse a specific (category of) knowledge itself is carvaṇā.” (See the Kāvyaprakāśa with Saṅketa commentary, p.51)
