Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)

Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra

Ātmīya (आत्मीय) refers to the “(concept of) mine”, according to  the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 46.—Accordingly, “[...] Having entered into [the patience towards beings], [the Yogin] has the following thought:—According to the Dharma preached by the Buddhas of the ten directions, there is no self and no ‘mine’ (ātmīya), it is only an assemblage of Dharmas designated under the name of ‘a being’. The being is like a mechanical doll: it moves and acts, but inwardly there is no master entity. [...]”.
