The Abhidharma-kosha identifies seventy-five dharmas (elements) that the Sarvāstivāda school "held were substantially existent (dravyasat) and endowed with intrinsic nature (svabhava)".[1] These are:[2][3][note 1]

  • the five sense organs (indriya),
  • the five sense objects,
  • nonmanifest materiality (or "imperceptible forms") (avijnapti-rupa),
  • mind (citta),
  • forty-six concomittant mental factors (caitta),
  • fourteen non-concurrent formations (aka "conditioned forces dissociated from thought" (Buswell) or "elements neither substantial forms nor mental fuctions" (Goodman)) (citta-viprayukta-samskara), and
  • three unconditioned factors (or "non-created elements") (asamskrta-dharma)

Three unconditioned factors

The three unconditioned factors are:

  1. space, akasa
  2. extinction through intellectual power, pratisamkhya-nirodha
  3. extinction due to lack of a productive cause, apratisamkhya-nirodha

Notes
