Paratantra (Sanskrit). The ‘dependent nature’ or ‘relativ nature, one of the three natures (tri-Svabhāva) according to Yogācāra philosophy. Paratantra denotes the conditioned stream of experience itself associated with Saṃsāra, through which a falsely imagined (parikalpita) duality of a subject and objects is generated and projected onto reality by the activation of imprinted predispositions (vāsanā) contained in the storehouse Consciousness (ālaya-Vijñāna).
