Praśastapāda improves upon this through defining inseparability (samavāya) as a courting that subsists among inseparable (ayutasiddha) entities on the topic of one another as substrate and its content material and that's the reason for the thought ‘This subsists during this locus. ’ it's a relation which makes varied entities mixture jointly, giving up their separate lifestyles. This relation obtains (a) among substance at the one hand and caliber, motion and common at the different; (b) among common at the one hand and caliber and motion at the different; (c) among entire and its elements, and so on.
