selflessness of phenomena

chö kyi dag me (Tib); chos kyi bdag med (Wyl)

According to the Prasangika Madhyamaka school, the most subtle view of selflessness of phenomena—all things other than the self or person—is their lack of inherent existence, thus phenomena are empty of existing from their own side, by their own characteristics. See also selflessness of person.
