Termo

Tibetano:

སངས་རྒྱས་

sangs rgyas

"purificado"+ "desenvolveu"

Sânscrito:

बुद्ध

buddha

O desperto, sábio, expandido, iluminado

Português:

buda, buddha

Um ser que removeu todos os seus obscurecimentos, emocionais e cognitivos, revelando assim todas as qualidades iluminadas da verdadeira natureza da mente. O termo “buda” em sânscrito – ou na sua grafia original “buddha” – significa literalmente “o desperto”. [STLX]

Se analisarmos a etimologia tibetana, trata-se daquele que purificou (sangs) os dois tipos de obscurecimentos e "desenvolveu" (rgyas) os dois tipos de omnisciência (o conhecimento da natureza dos fenómenos e a da multiplicidade dos fenómenos).
