Sevenfold reasoning of the chariot (Wyl. shing rta rnam bdun gyi rigs pa) — a line of logical reasoning used by Chandrakirti in his Madhyamakavatara in order to establish the selflessness of the individual and show that the self is merely a designation, applied to an assembly of parts, in just the same way that the designation 'chariot' is applied to the assembly of its parts, i.e., the wheels, axle, body and so on.
