Explanation
  don byed nus pa [translation-san] {LCh} artha-kriyā-śakti [translation-san] artha-kriyā-sāmarthya [translation-san] {GD:115} artha-kriyā-samartham [translation-eng] {Hopkins} able to perform a function; that which is able to perform a function; that which has the capacity to perform a function [comments] Comment: This is the definition of thing (dngos po). In the Great Exposition School even permanent phenomena have the capacity to perform a function, such as uncompounded space capacity to allow the placement or movement of objects. In the Sūtra School and above, having the capacity to perform a function refers to the function of producing effects, and thus the reference is only to impermanent phenomena.
