Praveśana (प्रवेशन) (Cf. Apraveśana, Praveśa) refers to “entering into (birth)”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Son of good family, the morality of the Bodhisattvas becomes purified by these eight qualities. What are those eight? To wit, (1) never giving up the thought of awakening in order to purify thought ; (2) no thought of disciples or isolated buddhas in order to purify logical ability; (3) never giving up training in order to purify one’s vows; (4) not entering into any kind of birth (sarvajāti-apraveśana) in order to one's aspirations; (5) no laxity in order to purify the condition of non-stress; (6) transforming into awakening so as to purify one’s aim’”.
