Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
Jarāmaraṇa (जरामरण, “old-age-and-death”) refers to the last of the twelve pratītyasamutpāda (dependent origination) according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter X. The decay of the five skandhas coming from jāti is called jarāmaraṇa, old-age-and-death. Jarāmaraṇa gives rise to dissatisfaction (daurmanasya), sorrow (parideva) and all kinds of worries (śoka); and thus the mass of suffering accumulates.
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.
