Conditioned (Skt. saṁskṛta; Tib. འདུས་བྱས་, düché, Wyl. 'dus byas) means created through causes and conditions.


In the Entrance to the Way of the Wise, Mipham Rinpoche says:

A conditioned thing is a thing which is created through causes and conditions. Its nature has arising, remaining and ceasing. Its basis of definition is all phenomena subsumed by the five aggregates. [1]
