Tryaṇuka (त्र्यणुक) refers to the “conjunction of three dyads (dvyaṇuka)” according to the Dīpikā on Tarkasaṃgraha.—Annaṃbhaṭṭa states in his Dīpikā about creation and dissolution that due to the creative will of the omnipotent God, motion is first produced in the atoms (paramāṇu). Then, from the conjunction of two atoms is dyad (dvyaṇuka) is produced. Then, as a consequence of conjunction of three dyads, a triad (tryaṇuka) is formed. Similarly, with four triads, a quadrate (caturaṇuka) is produced, and so on and on until the great masses of gross earth, water, light and atmosphere are formed.
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.
