Source: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā

Augha (औघ) [=Ogha?] refers to the “stream”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Then, the Lord went on to speak these verses: ‘[...] (78) Insight is not dependent on self, living beings, individual, and life principle, makes [living beings] free from existence and non-existence, and teaches them to practice the perfection of insight. (79) Insight is free from vices (kleśa) because it conquers Māras; it saves [living beings] out of the stream (augha) and releases them; it creates knowledge (jñāna) and related behaviour; and it reveals the highest happiness of liberation (mokṣa).[...]’”.
