Formations that are not concurrent with mind (S. cittaviprayuktasaṃskāra; T. sems dang ldan pa ma yin pa’i ’du byed; C. xin buxiangying fa 心不相應法) are identified in the Sanskrit Abhidharma tradition as formations that are not mental factors. "Because they are in the aggregate of formation, they are called formations. Because they are not mental factors and hence are not concurrent with mind, they are called non-concurrent."[1]

In the Tibetan tradition, these factors are commonly referred to by the shorter name of non-concurrent formations (S. viprayukta saṃskāra; T. ldan min 'du byed).[1]
