Nyaya (school of philosophy)
Gamana (गमन) refers to one of the five kinds of Karma (action) in the Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika philosophy. According to Kaṇāda, karma (action) is of five kinds. According to Praśastapāda (Praśastapādabhāṣya), that action which is the cause of the conjunction and disjunction with the indefinite region is called gamana. According to Varadarāja (Tārkikarakṣā), The non-intimate cause of the conjunction with non-specific space (aniyatadeśa) is known as gamana. According to Annaṃbhaṭṭa (Tarkasaṃgraha), All other motion [viz., not utkṣepaṇa, avakṣepaṇa, ākuñcana and prasāraṇa] is gamana.Source: Shodhganga: A study of Nyāya-vaiśeṣika categories
