Saṃyuktasamavāya (संयुक्तसमवाय) refers to “inherence with what has come into contact” and represents one of the six divisions of Sannikarṣa (“sense object contact”), according to the 17th century Tarkasaṃgraha. The ordinary perception (laukika), one of the two types of pratyakṣa (perception), is caused by ordinary sannikarṣa or sense object contact. The inherent union with the conjoint is the contact (saṃyukta-samavāya) in producing the perception of the colour of a jar, as the colour is inherently united with the jar which is in contact with the eye.
Nyaya (न्याय, nyaya) refers to a school of Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. The Nyaya philosophy is known for its theories on logic, methodology and epistemology, however, it is closely related with Vaisheshika in terms of metaphysics.
