Pali: Dhamma. The teachings of Buddha, Eternal Law. Righteous way of living as enjoined by scriptures.
The body of the law of Buddha, or the Eternal Law. Kaya means body.
In a number of major Mahayana sutras (e.g. the Mahaparinirvana Sutra, the Tathagatagarbha Sutra, the Srimala Sutra, amongst others), the Buddha is presented as clarifying the teaching of non-permanenceand saying that, while the skandhas (constituents of the ordinary body and mind) are not the Self, there does truly exist an eternal, unchanging, blissful Buddha-essence in all sentient beings, which is the uncreated and deathless Buddha-nature ("Buddha-dhatu") or "True Self" of the Buddha himself.
