Samavayikarana in Nyaya glossary... « previous · [S] · next »

Samavāyikāraṇa (समवायिकारण) refers to “inherent cause” and represents one of the three types of kāraṇa (cause) according to the Tarkasaṃgraha.—Among the three causes, inherent cause (samavāyikāraṇa) is the first and most essential one. It is comparable to the upādānakāraṇa or the material cause of other systems of Indian philosophy. This cause is also called to be the substance in which the effect is produced. Annaṃbhaṭṭa defines samavāyikāraṇa as that in which the effect is produced in the relation of inherence. The substance in which the effect is born being inherently related is called the inherent cause. The Nyāya-Vaiśeṣikas point out that it is only the substance which can be an inherent cause.
