Alobha (Sanskrit, Pali; Tibetan Wylie: Ma chags pa) is a Buddhist term translated as "non-Attachment". It is defined as the absence of Attachment or desire towards worldly things or worldly existence. It causes one to not engage in unwholesome actions. It is one of the virtuous Mental factors within the Abhidharma teachings. Alobha: Greedlessness is one of the 3 kammically advantageous roots Mūla.

The Abhidharma-samuccaya states:: What is alobha? It is not to be attached to a mode of Life and all that is involved with it. It functions in providing the basis for not being caught up in non-virtuous action.
