Avyākṛta (P. avyākata; T. lung du ma bstan pa/lung ma bstan; C. wuji) is translated as "indeterminate," "unascertainable," "unspecfied," etc.

Rangjung Yeshe wiki includes the following translations:

1) undetermined, undecided, indefinite, neutral, unspecified; (ethically/ morally/ karmically) neutral. 2) undecidedness, state of indifference, indistinct vagueness, neutral state, indifferent state, oblivious, ordinary state, vague oblivion, dull blank state of mind, amorphous states of mind. 3) ineffectual[1]

The term is used in the following contexts:

  • Avyākṛtavastu - the unanswered questions[2]
  • Avyākṛtadharma - indeterminant dharmas[3]
  • "All actions naturally engaged in by a mind which is neither [concurrent with] the three poisons nor their three opposites, are called 'indeterminate'."[1]
