Jagaccitta (जगच्चित्त) refers to the “thoughts of migrating beings”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Then on that occasion the Lord uttered these verses: [...] (111) He who has no agitated or conceited thinking, who nurtures no idea of awakening even while abiding in awakening, and who practices compassion even though he nurtures no idea of a self or living beings, he conquers the Māra and his forces. (112) Seeing both consciousness and knowledge equally, not being established in the conditioned nor the unconditioned, and regarding the thoughts of migrating beings (jagaccitta) as an illusion, that is the heroic uncrushability. [...]”.
