In Buddhist context, saṁvṛiti or saṁvṛiti-satya (Sanskrit) refers to the conventional (saṁvṛiti), as opposed to absolute, truth or reality (satya). Knowledge is considered as split into three levels: The first being the illusory (called samvriti, parikalpita or pratibhasika according to different schools of thought), considered false compared to the empirical (samvriti, paratantra or vyavaharika), in turn trumped by the transcendental (paramartha or paramarthika). Compare: paramartha
