parikalpitakleśāvaraṇa (T. nyon sgrib kun btags ཉོན་སྒྲིབ་ཀུན་བཏགས་; C. fenbie huo) is translated as "imputed afflictive obstructions," "imaginary afflictive obstructions," etc.

It refers to afflictive obstructions (kleśā-varaṇa) that are "generated through the study of flawed philopsophical systems in the present lifeteme."[1]

Parikalpitakleśāvaraṇa is contrasted with sahajakleśāvaraṇa (innate afflictive obstructions).
