Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

avyākata:1) lit. 'indeterminate' - i.e. neither determined as kammically 'wholesome' nor as 'unwholesome' - are the kammically neutral, i.e. amoral, states of consciousness and mental factors. They are either mere kamma-results (see vipāka), as e.g. all the sense perceptions and the mental factors associated therewith, or they are kammically independent functions (see kiriya-citta), i.e. neither karmic nor kamma-resultant. See Table I.

Appendix: This term in the sense of 'amoral' or 'kammically neutral', does not occur in the old Sutta texts, while it is found in Paṭisambhidāmagga (e.g. I, 79ff). It plays an important role in the Abhidhamma Canon (e.g. Dhammasaṅgaṇi) and the philosophical commentaries.
