Rūpidharma (रूपिधर्म) refers to “material dharmas” and represents a classification of dharmas according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XXV).—Accordingly, “material dharmas (rūpi-dharma) can be divided down to the subtle atom (paramāṇu) and endless dispersion, as we have seen in regard to the refutation of the gift given in the chapter on Danāpāramitā”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
