dharmātmagraha (T. chos kyi bdag 'dzin ཆོས་ཀྱི་བདག་འཛིན་; C. fawozhi) is translated as "grasping to the self of phenomena," "conception of the self with regard to phenomena," etc.[1] It is one of two types of self-grasping identified in the Mahayana; the other being "grasping to the self of person" (pudgalātmagraha).

The antidote to the grasping to the self of phenomena (dharmātmagraha) is the realization of "selflessness of phenomena" (dharmanairātmya).


  1. Buswell & Lopez 2014, s.v. pudgalātmagraha.
