Tulyayogitā (तुल्ययोगिता, “equal pairing”) refers to a type of Alaṃkāra (figure of speech).—When objects in hand or others are associated with one and the same attribute, the figure is Tulyayogitā or equal pairing. An attribute is either a quality or an action.

Tulyayogitā (तुल्ययोगिता) refers to one of the 93 alaṃkāras (“figures of speech”) mentioned by Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century) in his Kāvyavilāsa and is listed as one of the 89 arthālaṃkāras (figure of speech determined by the sense, as opposed to sound).—The figure of speech tulyayogitā has been admitted by Ālaṃkārikas like Ruyyaka (A.S. P. 70), Mammaṭa (K.P. X/104), Viśvanatha (S.D. X/66) and Jayadeva (C.L. V/51).

Cirañjīva has discussed about tulyayogitā alaṃkāra. He has defined it as follows—“varṇyānāṃ tulyadharmatve kathitā tulyayogitā”.—“When the things to be described or the contextual and non-contextual things are connected by a single attribute it is the figure tulyayogitā”.

Example of the tulyayogitā-alaṃkāra:—

astaṃ yāte divānāthe niśānāthe mahodayam |
unmīlanti kumudvanti cakorīnayanāni ca ||

“After the setting of the lord of the day (i.e. sun) and the rise of the lord of night (i.e. moon) the lilies and the eyes of the female cakara bird become opened”.

Notes: Here the lilies and the eyes of the female cakara bird which are to be described or contextual are connected with the same attribute that is opening. so this is an example of tulyayogitālaṃkāra.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
