In Buddhism

Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)

Asaṅgavaiśāradya (असङ्गवैशारद्य) refers to “unhindered fearlessnesses”, representing a quality acquired by the Bodhisattvas accompanying the Buddha at Rājagṛha on the Gṛdhrakūṭaparvata, according to the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XI. Their mind encounters no obstacle (āvaraṇa), neither exhaustion (kṣaya) nor cessation (nirodha), in regard to the various aggregates (skandha), elements (dhātu), bases of consciousness (āyatana) or causes and conditions (hetupratyaya). Thus they have unhindered fearlessnesses (asaṅga-vaiśāradya).
