Thus Come One ［如来］ (, Pali tathāgata; nyorai): One of the ten honorable titles of a Buddha, meaning one who has come from the realm of truth. This title indicates that a Buddha embodies the fundamental truth of all phenomena and has grasped the law of causality spanning past, present, and future. There are two opinions about the Sanskrit and Pali word tathāgata. One view interprets it as a compound of tathā and āgata, meaning “thus come one” and indicating one who has arrived from the realm of truth. This is the interpretation generally used in Chinese translations. The other interprets the word tathāgata as the compound of tathā and gata, meaning “thus gone one” and indicating one who has gone to the world of enlightenment.
