Dharmata (Skt. dharmatā; Tib. ཆོས་ཉིད, chönyi; Wyl. chos nyid) — suchness, or the true nature of reality.

Sogyal Rinpoche writes:


The Sanskrit word dharmatā, ཆོས་ཉིད, chö nyi in Tibetan, means the intrinsic nature of everything, the essence of things as they are.

Dharmata is the naked, unconditioned truth, the nature of reality, or the true nature of phenomenal existence.[1]
