Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Aparyanta (अपर्यन्त) refers to “(that which is) unlimited” (i.e., the sky), according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “When this had been said, the Lord said to the Bodhisattva, the great being Gaganagañja: ‘Just as the sky is unlimited (aparyanta), in the same way, [the Bodhisattva] gives a gift making his mind endless. Just as the sky is extensive and without obstacle, in the same way, [the Bodhisattva] gives a gift as the transformation for awakening. Just as there is no material in the sky, thus, [the Bodhisattva] gives a gift not being dependent on any material. [...]’”.
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.
