Dependent nature (Skt. paratantra-svabhāva) ― the second of the three natures presented in the Mind Only school. Something that is dependent or other-dependent (Skt. paratantra; Tib. གཞན་དབང་, shyenwang, Wyl. gzhan dbang) exists only in and through dependence on another thing, so in this case, phenomena exist in dependence on the mind and its processes.
