means Thus-being or Being in Thusness (Truth-being or being in Truth), as in the compound hasta-gata āmra (hand-being mango, mango being in the hand). It was usually translated as Thus-come (如来), and occasionally as Thus-gone (如去), usually interpreted as gone into heaven (nirvana) and come from there (as bodhi-sattvaawakening being). The reality is that he did not go to or come from anywhere, but was in thusness (truth/reality), beyond delusion (worldly convention), cp. Su-gata, Well-being, being in Wellness.
