Sāvayava (सावयव, “organic or combination”).—Anything having organs or parts is generally called sāvayava. Vācaspati explains in Tattvakaumudī the reasons for calling the vyaktas sāvayava. The attribute sāvayava is applicable in case of five subtle elements (five tanmātras), five gross elements (five mahābhūtas) and senses (indriyas), but it is not applicable in case of the relation of the vyaktas Ike buddhi, ahaṃkāra etc. with prakṛti, because there is relation of identity between vyakta and avyakta. The three constituents of prakṛtisattva, rajas and tamas, also can not join together, because these are eternally non-separable. Naturally, only vyakta can be sāvayava.
