Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Cyutyupapāda (च्युत्युपपाद) or Cyutyupapādajñānabala refers to one of the “ten powers” (daśabala) of the Bodhisattva, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 39. Accordingly, “by the power of the knowledge of birth and death (cyutyupapāda-jñānabala), he distinguishes and evaluates the places of birth of beings (upapattisthāna), beautiful (suvarṇa) or ugly (durvarṇa)”.
Also, “by means of this knowledge, the Buddha knows the places of birth and death (cyutyupapāda) of all beings and since this knowledge is intact (avyāhata) and invincible (ajeya) in him, it is called the ‘ninth power’”.Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
