Vaijātya literally means ‘of a different nature’.

This is one of the eleven kinds of tarka or logic. If somebody says that, since śabda[1] and rupa[2] are both indriya- grāhya[3] let them be considered identical, the reply is that the sense-organs that perceive them[4] being vijāti[5] they are also different. This kind of argument is vaijātya.
