Sanskrit
ālaya
Definition
Literally ālaya means a dwelling or abode, as in Himālaya, the "abode of snows." It is translated into Tibetan as kun gzhi, which means "basis of everything." However, it primarily relates to the separate mind or continuum of an individual and not a shared universal foundation. The concept existed in early Buddhism as an explanation of why an individual does not cease to exist when consciousness stops and was termed bhavanga in the Theravāda tradition. The ālaya later became an explanation, particularly in the Cittamātra tradition, for where karmic seeds are stored and was considered the source of an individual's mentally produced experiences. It is usually synonymous with the ālaya consciousness, which is the neutral basis for samsara and which ceases upon liberation
