Ādiparinirvṛta (आदिपरिनिर्वृत) refers to “extinction from the beginning”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “What is non-grasping (aparigraha)? It is not grasping permanence or impermanence in form, as well as in feeling, perception, formative factors or consciousness; [...] Even though the Bodhisattva does not grasp anything, he still attains concentration. Even though the Bodhisattva stays within existence, he never grasps any vice of existence. Even though he makes living beings believe in extinction, and attained extinction from the beginning (ādiparinirvṛta)”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
