Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Āpanna (आपन्न) refers to “having assumed (manifold forms)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.29 (“Śivā-Śiva dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Pārvatī: “O great Goddess, listen to my important statement. See that our marriage rites are performed in the proper manner without deficiency. O sweet-faced one, all the living beings Brahmā and others are non-eternal. O beautiful lady, know all these visible things to be perishable. Know that the single beings assumed manifold forms (āpanna—ekonekatvamāpanno). The attributeless took over the attributes. That which is self-luminous had other lights imposed on it. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Āpanna (आपन्न) refers to “entry”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XLIX.—Accordingly, “the Chinese characters Siu-t’o (srotas) mean ‘stream’, i.e., the noble eightfold Path (ārya-aṣṭāṅgikamārga). The characters Pan-na (āpanna) means ‘entry’. To enter into the noble eightfold Path is to enter into the stream of nirvāṇa: that is the first vision of the true nature of dharmas (dharmāṇāṃ bhūtalakṣaṇam or dharmatā). By successfully entering into this part of the immense dharmadhātu, one is classed among the Āryas”.
Srotas and Āpanna make Srotaāpanna. Notes: As soon as he enters into the darśanamārga, the ascetic penetrates into the certainty of the acquisition of the supreme good (samyaktvaniyāma); he loses the quality of ordinary person (pṛthagjana) and takes on that of the saint (Ārya):
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.
