Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
Kusida (कुसिद) refers to “laziness”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter L.—Accordingly, “[...] the Bodhisattva-Mahāsattva who wishes to not produce thoughts of avarice, immorality, malice, laziness (kusida), distraction or false wisdom should practice the perfection of wisdom”.—The lazy man (kusida) cannot realize worldly deeds; how then would he realize supreme complete enlightenment? When pieces of wood (araṇi) are rubbed together to make fire and if in this process one is interrupted many times, one never gets a fire made.
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.
