Partless particle (Skt. paramāṇu; Tib. རྡུལ་ཕྲན་ཆ་མེད་, dultren chamé, Wyl. rdul phran cha med) — the indivisible particle of matter asserted by the Vaibhashika and Sautrantika schools. See also indivisible moment of consciousness.
- When six other particles are joined to it,
- The subtle particle will have six parts.
- If the six all simply converge together,
- Then even compounds will be infinitesimal.
