Tiryagyoni (तिर्यग्योनि) refers to the “domain of animal” according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XX). Accordingly, “When the Bodhisattva cultivates generosity (dāna),... He knows clearly that an immoral (duḥśīla) person who strikes, beats or imprisons, but who practices generosity, nevertheless has broken the law to obtain wealth, is reborn among the elephants (hastin), horses (aśva) and oxen (go-); while taking on an animal existence (tiryagyoni-saṃsthāna) where he is burdened down with loads, beaten, fettered and used as a mount, he will always have good shelter, be well-fed and will be respected (gurukṛta) by men who will take good care of him”.Source: academia.edu: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā
Tiryagyoni (तिर्यग्योनि) refers to “animals”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “[Characteristics of behavior of all beings] [...] The behaviour’s essence, essential character, the essential character of cause, the essential character of condition, the essential character of productive cause, the essential character of combination, the essential character of difference, the essential character of discordance, the essential character of passion, the essential character of aversion, the essential character of delusion, the essential character of the three together, the essential character of hell-beings, the essential character of animals (tiryagyoni) [...]—he knows all the essential characters of behavior truly as they are, and there is no fault at all in his understanding”.
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.
