Nyāyabindu (T. rigs thigs), or "Drops of Reasoning," is one of the seven treatises on pramāṇa by the Indian scholar Dharmakīrti.

The Princeton Dictionary states:

This text summarizes Dharmakīrti’s positions on topics set forth at greater length in his most important work, the Pramāṇavārttika , focusing upon the two forms of valid knowledge (pramāṇa): direct perception (pratyakṣa) and inference (anumāna).[1]
