Hrīmat (ह्रीमत्) refers to an “assembly having shame” and represents one of the four types of saṃghas (assemblies) according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter VI. Accordingly, “What is the saṃgha having shame (hrīmat)? This assembly observes the precepts (śīla) without transgressing them; its actions of body and speech are pure (viśuddha); it knows how to distinguish the beautiful from the ugly but has not attained the Path”.
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.
