Non-concurrent formations (Skt. viprayukta saṃskāra; Tib. ལྡན་མིན་འདུ་བྱེད་, Wyl. ldan min 'du byed) are defined in the Sanskrit Abhidharma tradition as conditioned phenomena (samskara) that are neither matter nor consciousness.
The term non-concurrent formations (ldan min 'du byed) is used in the Tibetan tradition as a shortened form of the expression 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).
