Praṇidhipāramitā (प्रणिधिपारमिता) or simply praṇidhi refers to the “perfection of aspiration” and represents the eighth of the “ten perferctions” (daśapāramitā) as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 18). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (e.g., daśa-pāramitā and praṇidhi-pāramitā). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
