Paryutthāna (पर्युत्थान) refers to the “manifestation (of viewpoints)”, 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 Bodhisattva transcend all attachments? What is called ‘attachment’ means the manifestation of viewpoints (dṛṣṭi-paryutthāna) on the dharmas. The Bodhisattva transcends all attachments since he is free from any manifestation of viewpoints (dṛṣṭi-paryutthāna). Just as the wind is not attached to the vault of the sky, so the Bodhisattva who is endowed with the wind-like thought is not attached to any living being”.
