Amoha (Sanskrit, Pali; Tibetan Wylie: Gti mug med pa) is a Buddhist term translated as "non-Delusion" or "non-bewilderment". It is defined as being without Delusion concerning what is true, due to discrimination; it's function is to cause one to not engage in unwholesome actions. It is one of the Mental factors within the Abhidharma teachings.

The Abhidharma-samuccaya states:

What is non-deludedness? It is a thorough comprehension of (practical) Knowledge that comes from maturation, instructions, Thinking and understanding, and its function is to provide a basis for not becoming involved in Evil behavior.

Herbert Guenther states:

It is a distinct discriminatory awareness to counteract the deludedness that has its cause in either what one has been born into or what one has acquired.
