Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas.

Āgāmin (आगामिन्) means he “who comes back”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XLIX.—Accordingly, “the characters Si-ki (sakṛt) mean ‘a single time’; K’ie-mi (āgāmin) means ‘who comes back’. The ascetic so named, having left this world and taken rebirth among the gods, comes back from there one single time [into the world of men] and there finds the end to suffering”.
Sakṛt and Āgāmin make Sakṛdāgāmin. Notes: By the complete destruction of the three fetters (in the course of the darśanamārga) and by the lessening of desire, hatred and delusion (in the course of the bhāvanāmārga), after his death he becomes a sakṛdāgāmin: having returned only once to this world (the kāmadhātu), he will realize the end of suffering.
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.
