Tathagatagarbha in Buddhism
In the Buddhist religion, there is a concept called tathagatagarbha. The tathagatagarbha is the womb and/or embryo of the Tathagata. The tathagata has wisdom, vision and body. The tathagata’s tathagatagarbha is eternally unsullied and has virtues similar to the Buddha itself, which is important to note as it has an important purpose.
