Yathābhūta (यथाभूत) refers to “(patience) truly as it”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Son of good family, there are eight patiences reflecting on the dharma of the Bodhisattvas. What are the eight? [...] the patience without birth since characters are unconditioned; (6) the patience without origination since there is no arising and abiding; (7) the patience without being since there is no destruction of things; (8) patience truly as it (yathābhūta) is since there is no destruction by time. Son of good family, those eight are the patiences reflecting on the dharma of the Bodhisattvas”.
