Nirvāṇasukha (निर्वाणसुख) refers to the “happiness of Nirvāṇa”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 2).—Accordingly, “[Question.—Why do Buddhist sūtras begin with the word evam, ‘thus’?]—[...] Furthermore, the word Evam occurs at the beginning of Buddhist texts. Present happiness (ihalokasukha), future happiness (amutrasukha), the happiness of Nirvāṇa (nirvāṇasukha), all happiness has its roots (mūla) in very powerful faith”.
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.
