Nyāyānusāra (C. Shunzhengli lun) is an influential treatise on the Vaibhashika Abhidharma by the 5th century CE Indian scholar Saṃghabhadra. The title can be translated as "Conformity with Correct Principle."[1]

This text is intended of a refutation of Vasubandhu's Abhidharmakosa from a Vaibhashika point of view.[1]

The text was translated into Chinese by Xuanzang.[1]
