Dharmadhātujakāya (धर्मधातुजकाय) refers to a “body born of the absolute” according to appendix 1 of the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XX). Accordingly, “We have already said that the Bodhisattva entering into the dharmavasthā, abiding in the avaivartikabhūmi, acquires a body born of the Absolute (dharmadhātujakāya) when his last fleshly body (māṃsakāya) is exhausted, because, although he has cut all the afflictions (kleśa), the perfuming (vāsanā) of the afflictions remains; thus he takes a dharmadhātujakāya, not an existence in the threefold world (traidhātukajāti)”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). 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.
