Saṃyuktasamavetasamavāya (संयुक्तसमवेतसमवाय) refers to “inherence with that is inherent with a thing which has come in 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. Inherent union with the intimately united is the contact (saṃyuktasamaveta-samavāya) in producing the perception of the universal genus colourness, as colour is inherently united with the jar that is conjoint with the ocular organ and the genus colourness is inherently united therewith.
