(Tathāgatadhyāna) One of the four meditations (dhyana) described in the Mahayana Buddhist text Lankavatara Sutra. It is that state in which the mind has gone (gata) into “Suchness” (tatha). In this state the unreality and incomprehensibility of all phenomena is realized and feeling and thought no longer operate.
