  • avyākata

lit. 'indeterminate' - i.e. neither determined as karmically 'advantageous' nor as 'disadvantageous' - are the karmically neutral, i.e. amoral, states of consciousness and mental factors.

They are either mere karma-results (vipāka, q.v.), as e.g. all the sense perceptions and the mental factors associated therewith, or they are karmically independent functions (kiriya-citta, q.v.), i.e. neither karmic nor karma-resultant.

See Tab. I. (App.).
