Quick Reference

(Skt.). The ‘grasped’ and the ‘grasper’; a Yogācāra term for the duality of a perceiving subject and perceived objects. The school attributes the perception of duality to a false imagining (abhūta-parikalpa) which fabricates and superimposes upon reality the idea of a conscious self which perceives, and the objects which are perceived by it, thus generating saṃsāra.

Subjects: Buddhism.
