Hinduism - What Is Laghava In Hindu/Indian Philosophy?


Laghava is a Sanskrit word that means "simplicity." One of the basic concepts in forming and following an argument in Indian logic.

When faced with two equally plausible theories, one should select the one that is easiest to comprehend and contains the fewest assumptions, according to the "simplicity" concept.

The validity of the argument is the most important factor to consider while analyzing it.

Only once this has been accomplished can one make arguments based on complication or simplicity.
