Paribhāṣita (परिभाषित) refers to “insults”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “How then, son of good family, does the patience of the Bodhisattvas becomes like open space? Son of good family, the patience of the Bodhisattva becomes like the expanse of the sky when he is endowed with the four dharmas. What are those four? To wit, 1) never responding to abuse with more abuse because the speech is like open space; 2) never responding to beatings with more beatings because the body is like open space; 3) never responding to insults (paribhāṣita) with more insults because the thought is like open space; 4) never responding to anger with more anger because the intention is like open space. When he is endowed with those four dharmas, son of good family, the patience of the Bodhisattvas becomes like open space”.
