Kleśatyāga (क्लेशत्याग) refers to the “abandoning of the afflicting emotions”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Accordingly, “to destroy, to reject all the afflicting emotions (kleśa) from the three fetters (saṃyojana) up to the ninety-eight latent tendencies (anuśaya) is called ‘abandonment’ (tyāga). By recollecting the rejection of these things as one rejects venomous snakes (āśīviṣa) or like shackles, one acquires salvation (yogakṣema) and joy (prāmodya). Furthermore, recollection of the abandoning of the disturbing emotions (kleśatyāga-anusmṛti) also enters into recollection of the Dharma (dharmānusmṛti)”.
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.
