Mind translates several Sanskrit and Tibetan terms, including citta (Skt.; Tib. སེམས་ sem, Wyl. sems), buddhi (Skt.; Tib. བློ་ lo, Wyl. blo) and manas (Skt.; Tib. ཡིད་ yi, Wyl. yid).

In Illuminating the Mind, Khenpo Pema Sherab gives the definition of mind (Wyl. shes pa):

  • Tib. གསལ་ཞིང་རིག་པ་ཤེས་པའི་མཚན་ཉིད།
  • The defining characteristic of mind is clarifying and cognizing.

An example

  • Tib. མཚན་གཞི་བུམ་འཛིན་མིག་ཤེས་ལྟ་བུ།
  • For example, an eye consciousness apprehending a vase
