Asaṃskṛtadharma (असंस्कृतधर्म) refers to “unconditioned dharmas” according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Accordingly, “unconditioned dharmas (asaṃskṛtadharma), being without causes (ahetuka) or conditions (apratyaya), do not arise and do not cease. As they do not arise and do not cease, they are not said to be impermanent”.

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.
