Anutpattikadharmakṣānti (अनुत्पत्तिकधर्मक्षान्ति) refers to “(acquiring) the conviction that dharmas do not arise”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 22, v2).—Accordingly, “The Bodhisattva is born into the clan coming from the Bodhisattvas of the past.—[...], The Bodhisattva who begins with the strength of high aspiration is born into the clan of the Buddhas (buddhagotra). For the others, acquiring the conviction that dharmas do not arise [i.e., anutpattikadharmakṣānti-pratilābdha] would be the “clan of the Buddha” for it is then that the Bodhisattva acquires a partial influx of the knowledge of all the aspects. Compare this stage with the gotrabhūmi in the Śrāvaka system”.

Note: In the sixth bhūmi (abhimukhī), examining emptiness of dharmas in every way, he possesses an intense preparatory conviction, but has not yet made his entry into the real anutpattikadharmakṣānti.—Finally, the Bodhisattva ‘obtains’ the anutpattikadharmakṣānti. This is what is called the definitive obtaining (pratilābdha, pratilambha, pratilambhāta) of kṣānti.
