<p>Abstract:</p><p>The purpose of this essay is to reexamine the Buddhist concept of suchness <i>(tathÄtÄ)</i>, as developed in <i>The Awakening of Faith in the MahÄyÄna</i> (å¤§ä¹èµ·ä¿¡è«), in conversation with Meister Eckhartâs neologisms <i>istic</i>/<i>isticheit</i>. Previous comparative Buddhist-Eckhart studies have typically rendered these neologisms in a strict Aristotelian ontological sense, with English interpretations of âis-nessâ or the âbeing-nessâ of God. Recent scholarship, notably that of Alessandra Beccarisi, has altered this approach by demonstrating that Eckhartâs terms do suggest Godâs essence but within a Neoplatonistic perspective, especially in terms of the primacy of the intellect and human-divine unity. This development in Eckhart studies invites fresh comparative insights between <i>istic</i>/<i>isticheit</i> and suchness, especially in relation to the intellect.</p>
