In Buddhism

Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)

Apramāṇabuddhakṣetra (अप्रमाणबुद्धक्षेत्र) refers to “countless buddha-fields” according to the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 13.—The seeing and taking possession of such fields represents a quality of the Bodhisattva accompanying the Buddha at Rājagṛha on the Gṛdhrakūṭaparvata. The countless buddha-fields (apramāṇa-buddhakṣetra) are the buddha-fields of the ten directions. Seeing the wondrous infinities (apramāṇavyūha) of the buddha-fields (buddhakṣetra), these Bodhisattvas formed all kinds of aspirations (praṇidhāna).
