Vyāpyavṛtti (व्याप्यवृत्ति, “pervasive”) or Vyāpyavṛttiguṇa refers to a classification of the twenty-four guṇas (qualities) according to the Tarkasaṃgraha and the Nyāyasiddhāntamuktāvalī.—Another division of guṇa is found in the form of vyāpyavṛtti-guṇa (pervasive quality) and avyāpyavṛtti-guṇa (non-pervasive quality). A quality abides in a substance. Hence, that quality which remains pervading the whole unit to the substance so that there cannot be the absence of it is called a pervasive quality (vyāpyavṛtti-guṇa). Colour, taste etc. are pervasive qualities. That quality which may be both present and not present in a composite unit is called-pervasive quality (vyāpyavṛtti-guṇa).
