Aparāmṛṣṭa (अपरामृष्ट, “unafflicted”) or Aparāmṛṣṭaśīla refers to the “morality without thoughtless attachment”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Accordingly, “in the face of morality, the Yogin does not undergo the fetter of lust (rāga), pride (māna), etc. He knows the true nature (bhūtalakṣaṇa) of morality. If he grasps the characteristics of morality, he would be like a prisoner held by manacles who, even after having been pardoned, remains attached to his golden manacles. The person attached to his own morality by the passion of love is as if in prison: even if he manages to escape, he remains attached (sakta) to the morality like golden fetters. But the Yogin who knows that morality is cause and condition for purity does not experience this attachment to morality itself and is liberated, free of fetters: this is what is called morality ‘without thoughtless attachment’ (aparāmṛṣṭa)”.
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.
