Saṃbuddha (संबुद्ध) refers to “(perfectly) awakened”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “What then, son of good family, is the recollection of the dharma (dharmānusmṛti), which is authorized by the Lord for the sake of the Bodhisattvas? [...] The Bodhisattva, knowing that all dharmas are not originated because of their intrinsic nature, attains the tolerance that all things are unborn. This state of being is the true dharma. [...] He who understands thus understands all dharmas, since it is the way in which the people on the path of training or on the path beyond training, the isolated Buddhas (Pratyekabuddha), the Bodhisattvas, and the perfectly awakened one (samyañc-saṃbuddha) understand all dharmas. Such concentration is the liberation of all the holy, and in that there is no involvement with any dharma. The absence of involvement with any dharma is the recollection of the dharma, which is authorized by the Lord”.
