Akṛtakṛtya (अकृतकृत्य) refers to “not (yet) having done what had to be done”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 43.—Accordingly, “[...] In the womb of the fetters, the passions, the bonds of desire and the threefold poison, the Bodhisattva who has just produced the mind of peerless bodhi is honored by the Buddhas before having done what had to be done (akṛtakṛtya). It is only gradually that he will cultivate the six perfections, acquire the power of skillful means, enter into the position of Bodhisattva and succeed in obtaining the knowledge of all the aspects and save innumerable beings. But [from his first production of the bodhi mind] he prevents the rupture of the Buddha lineage, of the lineage of the Dharma and the lineage of the Community; he prevents the rupture of the causes and conditions assuring pure happiness in the heavens and in this world. [This is why he is honored by the Buddhas as soon as he is conceived]. [...]’”.
