Imputed nature (Skt. parikalpita-svabhāva) ― the first of the three natures presented in the Mind Only school. Imputed or imaginary (Skt. parikalpita; Tib. ཀུན་བརྟགས་, küntak, Wyl. kun btags), in this sense, does not mean to be hallucinatory as opposed to being real, it is to be constructed as an object by the operation of the mind.[1]
