Laukikāgradharma (लौकिकाग्रधर्म) refers to “worldly dharmas” according to appendix 3 of the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XXX).—In the Prajñā system, the higher (adhimātra) laukikāgradharmas consist of the absence of concept during the concentration, all dharmas having ceased to exist for the Bodhisattva: cf. Pañcaviṃśati, p. 145; Obermiller, Doctrine of P.P., p. 36; Analysis, I, p. 75. In possession of the laukikāgradharma, the ascetic enters into the Path of seeing (darśanamārga); he exchanges his quality of worldly person for that of śaikṣa; he enters into the samyaktvaniyama, the state of complete predestination (niyama) for nirvāṇa (samyayaktva = nirvāṇa).
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.
