Ajāti (अजाति) refers to “birthlessness”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Then the Bodhisattva Gaganagañja said this to the congregation of Bodhisattvas: ‘Sons of good family, may all of you elucidate the gates into the dharma of transcending the path of the works of Māra’ [...] The Bodhisattva Maitreya said: ‘Just as the water in the great ocean has a single taste, so all dharmas in the great ocean of the knowledge of the dharma have a single taste. Since the works of the Māra and the works of the Buddha, both are same in the perspective of emptiness, signlessness, wishlessness, birthlessness (ajāti), and the absence of origination, the Bodhisattva who enters into the single taste transcends the sphere of the Māra’”.
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.
