'''Svabhāva''' is usually translated as the "inherent nature" of something, and traditionally [[Buddhism|Buddhist]] schools denied the existence of such real essence, postulating that the ultimate truth is emptiness ([[Śūnyatā]]). However, some scholars such as [[David Reigle]] contend that some Buddhist texts such as Maitreya's ''Ratna-gotra-vihhaga'' did teach the existence of a permanent element in a way not too different from the [[Theosophy|Theosophical]] teachings.<ref>[http://easterntradition.org/book%20of%20dzyan%20research%20report%202-theosophy%20in%20tibet-the%20teachings%20of%20the%20jonagpa%20school.pdf# Theosophy in Tibet: The Teachings of the Jonangpa School] by David Reigle</ref>
