Sakriya (सक्रिय, “active”).—Though vyaktas are not omnipresent, still they are active (sakriya), because they possess parispandana. By the term kriyā, Vācaspati denotes parispanda or migration. There is no migration (spandana) in those things, which are vyāpi or pervasive. Whatever is pervasive is non-limited. Thus parispandana occurs only in case of those things, which are avyāpi (non-pervasive or limted). Manifested elements like buddhi migrate from one body to another. For these reason, these are called sakriya.
