store (藏). A paraphrase of the Sanskrit word garbha, which means the womb or the child in the womb. Then the thus-come store (tathāgata-garbha) is one’s true mind, also called the vajra store (indestructible) store. One’s true mind is likened to the space store in its vastness, and to the earth store in its supportiveness and hidden treasures. The realm of all dharmas is the dharma store. The aggregate of all Dharmas (Buddhas’ teachings) is the Dharma store; the collection of all precepts is the precept store.
