Visadṛśa (विसदृश, “heterogeneous”) refers to one of the two types of pariṇāma (change) according to the Sāṃkhya theory of evolution. It is also known as virūpa. Visadṛśa-pariṇāma begins when prakṛti (matter) and puruṣa (consciousness) come in contact with each other resulting in the cessation of the equipoise state of the guṇas and beginning of the establishment of dominance of one guṇa over the other two guṇas.
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).
