Anuprāptasvakārtha (अनुप्राप्तस्वकार्थ) is a title given to the Bhikṣus that accompanied the Buddha when he went to Gṛdhrakūṭaparvata at Rājagṛha according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter VI). Accordingly, “the noble eightfold path (āryāṣṭāṅgika-mārga) and the fruit of the religious life (śrāmaṇya-phala) are called the personal interest of the Arhats. As these five thousand Arhats have obtained the path and its fruit and enjoy this twofold personal benefit, they are described as Anuprāptasvakārtha”.
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.
