Pārājayika (पाराजयिक).—adj., grave, extremely serious (sin), = pārājika, q.v.; the identity of the two is proved by °jayikādhyāpanna Bodhisattvabhūmi 159.22 = Pali (pārājikaṃ) ajjhā- panna (q.v. in Critical Pali Dictionary), see adhyāpadyate; similarly Bodhisattvabhūmi 180.26, see ibid.; bodhisattvasya catvāraḥ °jayika-sthānīyā dharmāḥ Bodhisattvabhūmi 158.3, 5, etc.; 159.3; they are described in this passage, but bear no resemblance to the four pārājika of monks, being evidently a recent invention patterned on that ancient category.
