Samkhya (school of philosophy)Source: Wisdom Library: Sāṃkhya philosophy
Tuṣṭi (तुष्टि, “complacence”) refers to a category of pratyayasarga (intellectual products) according to the Sāṃkhya theory of evolution. Pratyayasarga is the first of two types of sarga (products) that come into being during tattvapariṇāma (elemental manifestations), which in turn, evolve out of the two types of pariṇāma (change, modification).
There are nine types of tuṣṭi, of which the first four are grouped as internal (ādhyātmika):
- prakṛti-tuṣṭi (material reality),
- upādāna-tuṣṭi (withdrawing),
- kāla-tuṣṭi (time),
- bhāgya-tuṣṭi (fate),
Besides these, there are five external (bāhya) types of tuṣṭi, produced by the cessation of senses from the śabda (sound), sparśa (touch), rūpa (colour), rasa (taste) and gandha (smell) or enjoyable things.
Samkhya (सांख्य, Sāṃkhya) is a dualistic school of Hindu philosophy (astika) and is closeley related to the Yoga school. Samkhya philosophy accepts three pramanas (‘proofs’) only as valid means of gaining knowledge. Another important concept is their theory of evolution, revolving around prakriti (matter) and purusha (consciousness).
