Synonyms of the Absolute

Friedmann’s translation:

A synonym makes clear that there are different names for the same-thing.
Because it defines the meaning of [the word of which it is] a synonym, it is called synonym…
Summarily the synonyms of the Absolute are:
Tathatā: The Absolute Essence; Suchness.
Bhūtakoṭi: The Limit of Reality; The Absolute Point of Existence.
Animitta: Deprived of Characteristics; The Formless.
Paramārthā: the Absolute, the Ultimate Reality.
Dharmadhātu: The Unique Absolute; the Ultimate cause of
the elements; Realm of Ideas. read more
