dngos po (T. dngos po དངོས་པོ་) is translated as "entity," "real thing," "functional thing," "thing," etc.
In the pramana tradition, this term is contrasted with dgnos med (དངོས་མེད་), or non-entity, which is "that which lacks the ablity to perform a function." Something that is not real.
Equivalent Sanskrit terms can be bhava or vastu.
