Saptabodhyaṅga (सप्तबोध्यङ्ग) or Bodhyaṅga or Sambodhyaṅga refers to the “seven factors of awakening” as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 49), itself forming part of the “thirty-seven things on the side of awakening” (bodhipākṣika-dharma). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (e.g., sapta-bodhyaṅga). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
